Running 360 through Xbone

Just checking for feedback from people who have tried running the 360 via HDMI through the One. Laggy? Any other annoying issues?

Buzzkill: Third parties can dictate their own DRM, says Tretton

11 June 2013 - 05:50 PM

Knew it was probably too good to be true but didn't say anything because I didn't want to jinx it. Guess it didn't matter.




""The DRM decision is going to have to be answered by the third parties, it's not something we're going to control, or dictate, or mandate, or implement," Tretton added."


Pretty brilliant (and incredibly sneaky) move by Sony. They get their press conference moment that everyone will remember, then slip this in as a clarification later, with fewer people being aware of it. With this situation it's not going to really be that different than what Microsoft has as far as potential DRM. No check ins I'd hope/assume, but it's not like EA is going to restrict on one but not the other.

360/XBOne E3 GAMES discussion - use XBox One thread otherwise

10 June 2013 - 01:05 PM

Obviously the majority of heated discussion is going to be about the box itself, but would be nice to keep that thread clean of off-topic stuff about games.


Not long to go now. It's going to take literally a miracle for them to convince me this system is worth purchasing, so I hope they've been talking to God this morning.

Advice on selling prototype NES cart

22 April 2013 - 06:08 AM

Was going though a box of NES stuff and found something that I am probably going to try to sell. I'm in some incredibly dire financial straits due to medical issues (read: I'm nearly flat broke) and need every penny I can come up with, ASAP. This may not even be worth much at all, but I'm grasping at whatever I can get right now, so it's worth a shot. It's not exactly Legend of Zelda, but it's certainly a little more noteworthy than...I dunno...Deadly Towers?


Ninja Gaiden for NES prototype cart. I played through it once after I received it (many, many years ago...mid-90's). The main difference between this and the final release was the ending and, if I remember correctly, final form of the last boss were not included. This seemed to be fairly typical of prototype/review copies at the time, I guess so the ending wouldn't leak out or whatever. Guessing there were probably some enemy behavior tweaks and stuff as well, but it's been a while since I've played it (I'm going to grab a working NES from my brother and try to play through it in the next couple of days and see if I notice anything else).

The main potential problem with selling it is I have no idea of its origin. It was given to me by a friend back then along with a stack of random games, and I've lost contact with him so I have no real way to find out any info about it, I know that could potentially hurt the value.

I realize the best way to sell it may just be to put it on Ebay and see what happens, but are there some other sites I should post on promoting it if I do put it up for sale?
