Thanks for that, that might be worth a look, especially for us that want to hang onto the physical media as long as possible!

BTB Playstation DVD still to get to backers, so will assume the general release will be knocked back

If you saw King of Kong, you may be interested in the 'response' documentary that takes a critical look at KoK - it's called the King of Con, and is critical of some of the behind the scenes stuff in KoK:

The entire history of games with a PC focus, in a romanian accent.

I'm impressed that it goes back to to 1967. Given that there wouldn't be much in the way of personal computers for another decade or so.

It's a heads up for those expecting the usual NES->SNES->PS1 focus later on.

Thanks, will definitely take a look at that :) ***edited add on, have just watched a good bit of it, quite intriguing and makes sense. I think most realised it was well edited, but not scripted to the extent it was. It doesn't surprise you really. Still a good movie but you really can't trust the vast majority of it to be factual at all.

Has anyone who backed the BTB Playstation Revolution DVD/Blu ray got update on the physical release progress?

If you can find it, Charlie Brooker's How Video Games Changed the World.

Happy to say have just received BTB: Playstation Revolution on DVD. I saw it had been announced about a month ago as a physical release, so went on the site and ordered it. Arrived today. Looking to settle down and watch it tonight.

Those BTBs are fantastic, I salute the producers for getting right into details.

Been watching quite a few of these docs again recently. Love Chasing Ghosts & that High Score one where the guy's Missile Command can keeps breaking.

Looks like the Kickstarter backers might actually get to see the Insert Coin Midway doc soon according to the latest email update. Looking forward to that.
