  • Support This picture brings back a ton of memories. Great picture. No reason it shouldn't be featured. Chambr (talk) 08:04, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Looks more like an old fashioned 'portable phone' than a game system! Ðiliff «» (Talk) 09:44, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Note This is one of the pictures that never matched my other console photos, because I took it a long time ago at a place without lights and a short lens. I haven't updated it yet because I didn't have the system, and literally just bought one a few days ago so I could retake this picture. Given that, I don't know if I'd vote on it because it will be replaced in a week or two by a much higher quality picture. Evan-Amos (talk) 00:26, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
    • We can D&R (delist and replace) if necessary. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:31, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Although I think this would likely be a FP anyway (if it gets another vote, that is), maybe it's best to suspend the nomination and wait for the replacement? I'm not that bothered if we do go ahead with a delist and replacement but it seems like more admin work than simply suspending. A week or two isn't long. Ðiliff «» (Talk) 11:49, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
