Got any? Want any? (to qualify, must be 6th gen or earlier) I have a PSP, PS1 and Genesis (MegaDrive) emulators and a PS2 that I got today with 14 games and a PS1 controller for $40. Only 5 good games though...
Those were only introduced for a limited time in North America. It's standard for all PS3s in Japan, but anyone in this hemisphere who didn't grab one fast enough was stuck with one without the backwards capability.
PC does have a lot of advantages but PC gaming is becoming more and more dependent on high speed internet. ( You used to be able to just download games straight off the disc, now it seems you're hard pressed to find a game that doesn't demand Steam and by extension good internet.
Consoles are MUCH friendlier to those without top of the line internet.
oh gawd... go have your fight somewhere else (also hoping someone had an atari stashed somewhere). P.S. Just found my old PS2, now have two controllers, 5 memory cards, and one of the games failed to work :)
So far: PS1: Works PS2: Might work once I put a disk instead of an ISO in. PSP: Works, although one game runs doublespeed. Atari: will move but doesn't take damage, fire etc. Genesis/Megadrive: Works better than fine, easiest so far. Xbox (the original): Can't get it to work. Dreamcast: *crying motions*
rare made games for the spectrum before they were called rare. *Edit, i belive they were called "ultimate Play the game" back then.
i dont think ive seen that thing before, it looks like that one toy (powerman i think it was called?) that had a saturday morning cartoon that had sections where you shoot your tv and the toy counts your score.
wii, wiiu, and 3ds have a decent library of successful hits in their virtual console, psvita, ps3, and psp have a good chunk of ps1 games (ps3 has some ps2 games). Sure youll never see games from some less popular systems like the zx spectrum mentioned above, but youll have a good footing on true gaming classics (and lets be honest, the NES', SNES', and PS1's libraries make up ~75% of the best 'retro' games.
