Mate, I am in this with you
Fark did I already miss out? Says round 2, sold out..
My activity today was further packing up of my games room
Glad I got these relatively clear pics of how the last iteration was since there's plenty to draw from for when I can set it up again
Just having a look around for Saturns and DCs.
I saw some folks picking up PS1s in Japan for 50c. Not quite AU eBay prices.
Got one on the way $53.90, not even mad
You can buy junk console for like 3-4 dollars and take the chance, got a Super Famicom that way. Heaps of junk Gamecubes too everywhere.
Round 2 should be going live in approx 40 minutes.
Nice, staying in Ueno now. Won’t be able to look at console stuff for the next 3 days though as hanging out with friends for a bit. Ate way too much at a torikizoku izakaya tonight, love that place. What location was the Saturn/Dreamcast photos if you don’t mind, the Hard Offs you mentioned previously? Cheers.
Ueno to Takadanobaba on Yamanote line, transfer to Seibu Shinjuku line(Hon Kawagoe direction) all trains will stop at Hanakoganei. About 15 minutes walk.
omg get in there guys
Ordered though 'meneer beer's website. Dan's one says that's it's already done and dusted.. 25 euros for shipping to Oz.. that's fricking steep..
Hi, yes Dan’s site went quickly. Still over 400 available on the European site though:
This is a pre-order. You will receive a separate e-mail for payment, once the product is ready to ship.
With the shipping cost you mentioned it makes it $155+ Australian to purchase.
Just as an aside I believe if you have/want to fit the entire GC library on one SD Card you need 1TB capacity which are confirmed to work (but aren’t cheap).
Thanks once again for the detailed information, much appreciated.
7689412 survived the PSU transplant and is now a PAL citizen. He still can't speak english though.
Second PSIO switch board nailed!
need to hit up the service menu to correct geometry for NTSC.
Sweet , are all the games in Japanese? Lol JK. Nicely done with the PSU transfer.
Trying out some games i know well from playing PAL version as a kid. in NTSC that have a noticable speed difference. I feel like my child hood was a lie.
Probably from 2000 on I switched exclusively to 60Hz gaming, either modding consoles or importing. I put a big effort in to going back and getting all my childhood consoles switched over to 60Hz as well.
I value "original intent" of games. European designed titles on 50Hz micros or consoles are great for matching content, but the sheer bulk of early console gaming was US and Japanese gaming on 60Hz hardware. Playing it that was is a truly better experience when the hardware matches what the game was designed on.
Even if a PAL game is optimized to run at the correct speed the reduction in flicker @ 60Hz means NTSC still wins out.
I just got done making another high quality component cable for the OG xbox out of a genuine 360 cable.
I swear I'll actually play some games at some point this weekend
Nah that's a lie - I played Dirt 4 on XB1 for hours last night.
