Man i envy you guys in America, being able to pick the guns up that easy, we don't even see them over in the UK, and the US ones won't work on PAL consoles.

Is there any third party companies selling these or the mouses anywhere?

JAP console - No Colour?

Anybody know anyway i can get a JAP console to work in the UK with colour. I have tried several TV's and even a USB TV card for the PC and still no look and that supports NTSC. You used to be able to get TV's with NTSC playback everywhere at one time now none seem to support it. I have an old Acorn ...

Anyone else a point & click fanatic

I know it's not 3DO related but it is awfully quiet around here at the moment, so i was just curious to see if there were any other adventure game fans on the site. Sure they are dated and old school,slow paced, irritating as hell when you get stuck and can't progress, they often they have ridiculou...

I think it was released multi platform so quite a few got the first one. Amazingly they are still alive still mainly working on worms titles(think one came out on the DS recently).

I have just been testing my PS1/2 adaptors as they arrived this morning and although they are a bit cheaply put together they are great, i cannot tell you how good it is to play Wolfenstein 3D with the analogue stick, even phoenix 3 is no longer a thumb breaking exercise, very nice.

I'm sure its the same thing inside just looks nicer on the outside. There was also a unreleased AT&T console which looked amazing, would be great for collectors if you could drop on one of these even if they didn't work and were just for show.

3do Joypads - terrible or just old?

Looking for some advice with 3do joypads. I have recently gotten back into the 3do and have purchased a few (too many) consoles and about a dozen pads. Now i don't know if i have just gotten lazy with using analogue sticks but the d pads are terrible, they are stiff and difficult to use(found the ps...

Without a doubt, the term 'flogging a dead horse' springs to mind, although some of them were actually pretty good, there was a version for the Xbox which was alright. Its the same as Team 17 they are milking the worms franchise to death, i just hope they don't go the same way. I guess its easier to...

Are you based in the UK (never seen a tv with 5 inputs, is the TV from the UK?), as i have also had this problem with an imported Japanese console, the screen is black & white due to the NTSC playback not being supported by PAL TV's. The only option is to get hold of a TV or monitor with NTSC support.

Just out of curiosity how do you know the wrappings are original and not resealed. I always prefer to open them and make sure everything is in there and 100% working. (Can you imagine paying a huge amount of money for a sealed game only to find in 20 years there was nothing in there)
