Anyone know consolepassion phone number?

I need to return a console and I've misplaced the business card the owner gave me. I've e-mailed but haven't heard back from them yet and want to get it sorted before the weekend. - Thank you :)

Re: How to do a dispute with a US ebay seller

Hi yeah it's a ps2 slim. I only have two games and it randomly freezes on both or in the menu. Have a step down convertor so it's not that. The listing says no returns so not sure I can do anything?

How to do a dispute with a US ebay seller

Hi I bought a console from the us, the guy said he'd tested it and while it does boot up it usually crashes at random points in the game. Bearing in mind it cost £30 + £20 postage and to post it back will cost another like £20 ish or more is it worth the dispute or should I just chalk it up to exper...

Re: Ps2 slim problems

Okay that's strange I'll try that and see if that has any effect. Does yours freeze only during games or in the menu also?

Ps2 slim problems

So I recently bought a US ps2 slim and it randomly crashes, this sometimes happens even when I'm not even playing a game and am just in the menu. Sometimes a game will run absolutely fine and sometimes I will just get to a section and the game will hang .... Anybody know if this is fixable by cleani...

Re: Step down convertor for ps2?

Thanks bought the one you said. Sadly looks like the unit bugs out after a while.

Re: Buying a game again if you have the Rom

I usually buy the game. For example monster world 4 to support Sega's admirable job of porting and translating. Only major exceptions are RPGs ... If nintendo/square had brought out and released earthbound and mario RPG / chrono trigger etc in Europe at the time I would definitely have bought them, ...

Unreleased Dizzy games Megadrive

http://www.gamesthatwerent.com/2012/01/unreleased-dizzy-games-on-the-megadrive-so-close-yet-so-far/ I loved the dizzy game that was actually released on the megadrive but apparently there were 2 more. Hopefully they aren't as ridiculously hard. Can someone from the magazine or somewhere try and get ...

Re: Does anyone know how do diagnose a sick Mega-CD 1?

If it's a multiregion unit then something strange might be going on if it's running out of its native speed or region but I'm assuming it's a Japanese megadrive with a Japanese mega CD

Re: Does anyone know how do diagnose a sick Mega-CD 1?

That's a bizarre one. I didn't think that bios with the world screen was even used outside of America. A POSSIBLE workaround would be to use an everdrive flashcart with the correct bios loaded onto it? If you're lucky enough to have one or know someone who has one and it's purely a software issue no...

Re: Step down convertor for ps2?

Ok thanks for the advice guys :). is the model I linked to in my first post okay? I don't really understand step downs are they all basically the same thing or do the numbers mean anything? Thanks

Step down convertor for ps2?

Hi I'm getting a slim ps2 from the us (fingers crossed anyway) I've heard various different models can or can't use the uk slim ps2 plug so I'm playing safe and getting a step down convertor. Does anyone know if this would do the job? Or is a more expensive one better? I don't know anything about vo...

Light gun fix -sega/ps one

Just curious if anyone has experience with light guns aiming a few inches off? Light guns like the snes scope and guncon with an external sensor seem to be fine but playing sega lethal enforcers or any master system gun game and the accuracy is awful to the point where I have two master system guns ...

Re: Anyone have experience with playasia couriers?

Thanks, I guess its up to the courier in that case...., you dont happen to remember what courier company they used for you do you? might be worth waiting till after christmas... their quick shipping actually works against them in this instance... :)
