PicoDrive does Mega CD as well as Mega Drive, but there's no 32X emulator for the PSP.

And we're not allowed to tell you where the ROMs are, there's Google for that :P

Do any MD collectors use a v1 and rgb cable?

what sort of difference do they make on a modern plasma?

thanks

It's the best real hardware'll look on a flatscreen - run that exact set-up on my LCD and it looks sweet as. It'd be better still if you got one of those fancy upscalers but they're not exactly cheap.

These dudes reviewed it. Do you agree?
At least you can always play the superior arcade version via MAME for free. I personally wouldn't pay out so much money for a weaker console conversion, especially with all the fake ones doing the rounds.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

There are lots of games that are rarer and more expensive than The Punisher, it only cost me £28

I happen to think that was well worth it as its really good.

Its inclusion as one of the rarest games for the MD in the current issue's collectors guide baffled me as there are far rarer games.

I personally dont like The Punisher as it feels a bit clunky compared to even Final Fight. I suppose as I paid about £3 for it I shouldnt complain. Kind of balances out the money I'll need to pay for Megaman , Daze before Christmas and Alien Soldier.

Bl00dy nora - HOW MUCH?

I know it is frowned upon - buying to sell, but however you look at it, that would have been a very savvy purchase in the long-term if it was a genuine "sealed copy"

I would have viewed it as a very worthwhile investment

Where was the original offer from? Internet seller, friend or shop??

Is there any such thing as a sealed copy?

^ Usually the "seal" for a MD case is that little oval Sega logo sticker although apparently there were a few games that got the cellophane treatment.

yer, the Wily World was a missed buy - but I didn't have the cash at the time, so not a lot I could do. Guy's put it (or is putting it on ebay).

just got myself a mint copy of MUSHA aleste and a copy of super shinobi both japanese.

dissapointed that my copy of super shinobi doesn't have rambo, godzilla or batman in it. i'd like a copy of the un-fixed version, i'm sure the original PAL release had these unfixed bosses in it too.

also got ghouls n ghosts (jap) and a superkey so i can play uk pal games on my jap md, worth the cash just to play the PAL devil crash finally.
