Anyone recommend any decent 2D games? I was an owner at the time but was sucked in by the 3D side of things

If they're that easily hackable, and the roms are easy enough to find I'm tempted to get one and take it offshore with me.

Would you be better with a handheld? Psp is easy to hack, has tonnes of great psp games and emulators galore.

Vita is good too but but more tricky to hack (though easy enough that I've done it twice).

Indeed. The PSPs PS1 emulator is also significantly better than the PS1-Classic as well, especially if you're running "official" PSN Playstation 1 game eboots - they're practically flawless.

Symphony of the Night, Rayman, R Type Delta, Rapid Reload. Street Fighter Alpha 2 and 3. Although I prefer 2. The Raiden Project was a great 2D shooter. Blood Omen Legacy of Kain, basically Zelda with a vampire.

Although not strictly 2D I loved the Pandemonium games.

I also did the 3D thing totally missing out on Symphony of the night until the 360 conversion. I went into my local Indie game shop with the intention of buying SOTN for £30, but someone was about to trade in FF7 and they offered him £25. I offered £27 and got it off him. The shop weren't happy but in hindsight as much as I enjoyed it I'd have been better off buying SOTN. Oh well.

Hmmm, good points guys about the PSP idea. I've got one, and it has been hacked already. Whipped it out a couple of months ago and was annoyed at how loud it is when playing UMD's, but emulation wouldn't make a peep. Used to have Mega Drive, Master System and Speccy stuff on it hadn't thought of going PS1. The thought of playing Destruction Derby 2 again is great. Just gonna have to find the stuff now.

The problem with PS1 emulation on PSP is the lack of shoulder buttons in games that use all four on the pad.

My PS1 Classic is now hacked with BleemSync 1.1 and now has over 80 games on it, it is harder and takes a lot longer to hack then the NES/SNES Mini's but totally worth it. I have been playing Castlevania SOTN on it and it is great.

Are you able to still use two controllers? The hacks I've seen use a usb slot so you can only plug in one control pad, which is annoying for sports games.

Mine is still in the box ha. Took it out once, had a look (lovely machine) and put it back.

£16.99 as part of Prime Day. Will Amazon finally be able to ship all their stock at last?

I have been going to pick this up at the right discount, for the fun of adding stuff, but in New Zealand they won't discount too much, so they are not going to get over 50 quid out of me for it. Not sure if our retailers and importers realise the world is a far smaller place nowadays, we can see we are getting ripped off

Oh, they know it all right. They're just very good at factoring in the costs and uncertainties of international shipping.

So yeah, you can order it cheaper from overseas, but you'll have to wait ages for it to arrive and it'll end up costing you more and taking even longer if you get a dud and you've got to return it.

Even at 50 quid it doesn't seem that bad value though, especially if you'll never get a shot at one for less. I guess it depends on how much use you have for two controllers without analogue sticks and an ornament.

I *think* you can use a usb hub. There are also physical mods that work differently.

Yeah fair points, but they can still get stuffed! :lol: I'll just pick one up second hand at some stage from someone that buys one on a whim then gets bored.

I've had this out with some retailers, even with the likes of magazines (Retro Gamer and Imagine FX, which are a ridiculous local price and three issues old when they hit shelves). The response was either nothing, or my favourite was you're paying for convenience and if you don't like it buy online. That same company was bitching in mainstream media how people shop online and don't support local companies :lol:
