It's definitely an interesting curiosity as one of the if not the worst-selling console of all time (Even the Philips CD-i dwarfed it in sales!). I'd say it's definitely only for the most hardcore collectors though, since you're obviously not gonna play it much.
I do wish I could at least try out the controller, though. Apparently it was pretty surprisingly comfortable to hold and use from what I've heard.
Useless aside: ...I'm also mostly just amused by the name because "Pippin" also happens to be the name of my dog =p
Can play online, but doesn't very often.
