I'M COMING HOME

Post#1 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 2:07 pm

LOL Hey guys I'm sure you read my ranting topic about how Disc Swapping to play the cheaper imports was annoying and ruined my dreamcast experience.

So I just got JAPAN Console ,

All I will have to do

when it comes time for a sport game just make a burn copy of US Release and I should be cool.

I can't believe how lop sided the Market Place is for US VS JAPAN , :mrgreen:

When I bought VMUs in the past, I liked seeing what the previous owner had saved on them and the date stamp on each game. It's a bit of history that will never be known to anyone else.

You're absolutely right, it evokes so much nostalgia!

Yup I can confirm that most games are really cheap here in Japan. Of course the expensive ones are expensive here as well but you can usually get them for cheaper than ebay.com, etc.

On the other hand when it comes to hardware, the console itself is pretty affordable but that's about it. I personally find accessories (controllers, VMUs, arcade stic, twin stick, etc) to be quite expensive still given their age.

Woah this is real interesting ,

I do not remember Standard RCA Image Quality being super good with my RE2 GAME.

Is it maybe because I had Generic RCA replacement cables the 1st time around ?

for Some reason the RCA almost looks VGA Quality ?

Then again maybe I am so accustom to playing my PS1 Versions on PS1 Emulators lol
