Don't ask why as I really hate the car-modding scene considering them to all be a bunch of half-wit knuckle draggers but I really love NFS-Undergrond2. Next would be Burnout3 closely followed by Burnout 2. Ridge Racer Type 4 is another favourite. Jaguar XJ220 on Mega CD, Test Drive & Outlander on At...

Merry christmas all! Got Clive Barker's Jericho for my PS3 from the missus, an Ogri board game and a ton of decent ale.

Turbo Sub is a good 3D shooter, Gates of zendecon is a good horizontal shooter(R-Type style sort-of), Ninja Gaiden, scrolling beat-em-up, Kung Food is also fun but flawed. Ishido way of the stones is a classic puzzle game, well worth having. Qix is a good conversion of the arcade machine but bloody ...

It's so weird, I found my old frogger tabletop in the top of the wardrobe yesterday, forgot I even had it! Put some batteries in and it still works a treat, shame the battery cover is lost.
It's pretty neat however, good version and nice style :-)

Thanks guys, think I'll keep hold of the PS2 then, it's one of the nice slimline ones anyhow so doesn't take up any room.

Cheers!

ps1 & ps2 games on new budget ps3?

Will the new 40 gig ps3 run the old games, with what research I've done I can only find conflicting statements. Basically it needs to run the missus's Singstar stuff, then I can trade in our old ps2 and actually afford the bastard!
Anyone know for sure?
Best,
Chris

In my experience these things are pretty fragile, so don't pay a lot, maybe a fiver. At least the games are very cheap :)

Don't know if anyones interested but I found a neat way to play dragon games on the real hardware, this site has .wav files of games: http://www.dragon-archive.co.uk you have to sign up to get the downloads but it's free. I then use Burn on my Mac to record them as regular audio on a CD then load th...

It's a brillaint game, one of the best speccy titles in my opinion. Not sure on a remake however, it's the smplicity that makes it, crisp clear graphics etc. On a new console it would almost certainly lose that.
Best,
Chris
