Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I bought a PS2 today for £20 in fairly decent condition. Doesn't play anything but PS2 games though for some reason, but I have a Blu-ray player and a PSOne already. It may have been modded, have you tried copied PS2 games in it? I bought a NTSC-J PS2 Slim which does the same, I tried a burned disc...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Finally bit the bullet on DoDonPachi NTSC-J Playstation PS1, Japanese seller took my offer of $70 (£56.27) including postage, unfortunately I had to pay a further £10 Import Tax and £8 Post Office Import Tax Collection Fees. Still it's a near mint copy, complete with registration card (no Obi) for j...

Re: When Rap Was Great!

DJ Cash Money & MC Marveous, Stetasonics, EPMD, Jungle Brothers, KRS1, Mantronix, De La Soul and Public Enemy of course. I have happy memories of all those albums and 12" s...

Donpachi and DoDonpachi on the PS1 for example will always be fun to play, regardless of how many further episodes of the series are made. I play very little 3D stuff on either system a...

Re: What did you buy at the carboot today ??

Got a modded PSone for £8, when I got it home turns out it only plays PAL originals and backups, doesn't play any NTSC discs at all, very disappointing, anyone else had this?
