I'm surprised nobody's mentioned it...

I purchased one of these a few weeks ago, and it arrived just before Christmas. http://image4.play-asia.com/640/6a/pa.113098.2.jpg It looks like a simple re-branding of a very similar (and more expensive) TecToy product , and there are also videos of a PAL version on YouTube. It features 20 Genesis/...

Later models of PlayStation 2 are compatible with DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW. I believe compatibility with the last two was added with the same model of chunky PS2 that came with a built-in IR reciever, and that compatibility extends to the slim ones, too. However, my first PS2 was a European l...

European Mega Drive games use exactly the same size and shape of cartridge as North American Genesis games. A healthy majority will work perfectly in the Nomad, but there are quite a few which feature territorial lockout.

any other game (or at least Sonic Spinball, for sure): I remember getting to that little "mini-game" where you normally have to try to earn the emeralds by hitting all the blue blocks.... When you placed any old game into the top of Sonic & Knuckles, you were given a single level of the 3D maze spe...

If you look at the available promotional material, they appear to be based on the Master System.

The majority of Mega Drive and Genesis games did not feature regional lockouts, and so a great deal of your UK games will play on the Nomad. I've heard estimates of around 80% of games being compatible, although based on the few dozen games I own, I would say it could be less. There doesn't seem to ...

I've got a PAL Playstation 2, so I don't know if this will be of much use to you - but if you don't choose RGB under the system setup menu (instead of 'Y, Pb, Pr'), everything has a green tint when going through an RGB connection. DVDs are always green regardless, due to a cock-up on Sony's part.

Yeah I saw some sky stuff on ebay if I bought a sky system I wonder if I could get it activated in the U.S. if not I could just get a hacked receiver card. Anyone know if sky has any good channels and do they have a lot of U.S. stations on it? I doubt the signal would stretch quite as far as the US...

From Germany you should be able to recieve Sky, the UK's commercial satellite service. I've noticed that for a lot of popular US shows (The Simpsons, Malcolm In The Middle, Friends) the delay has been reduced to only a few weeks, with most other shows being no more than a couple of months usually (S...

The battery inside the Dreamcast is rechargable, but after a few weeks without use it runs out of juice. Just keep the Dreacmast on for a while and it will eventually recharge itself.

Its not pirate. Its a TecToy item aint it? In Brazil, the Genesis is known as the Mega Drive, so I would have thought none of their units would have "Genesis" written on them - but they do make some very similar Master System units. http://www.gbax.com/brazilsega.html I wonder if you could butcher ...
