I've got a PS2 if I want to play PS2 games. The only reason I'm emulating these other games is because there is no way to get the games without paying crazy money and even then Konami gets nothing.

well the emu allows you to play in HD and you can get a lot of games that are in the same situation as snatcher and policenauts

I'm playing Snatcher and Policenauts right now but anyone got any other recommendations that aren't Sims, Diablo or Starcraft? Looking at stuff like Hitman and Dreamfall.


Hit up GOG.com and see if anything interests you. Its hard because theres so much its hard to say any one thing, but theres a lot of stuff that never made it to europe on psx and ps3 and quite a few good PC only games a good chunk of which are playable with xpadder and even have specific profiles for certain games.

You could afford it. The issue is will it be worth anymore in 10 years?

I doubt any of them will. Look at Xbox/PS2 now in the same stretch of time; worthless.

Yeah man, special edition or bust. One time I almost bought that Japanese Dreamcast with the Sega president on it. Think it was almost £300.

Go with your gut. To be honest from what Dorian has told me the screws are so fickle you'd only really get one chance to take it apart. Or if you're like me and know you won't be using it again, just smash it apart..

Might as well,don't have anything to lose...well I hope.The controller itself works but the analog sticks got stuck at certain places.Hope nothings wrong,controllers are fucking expensive.

Have you not tried pulling them out and clicking them back in place? One of the analogs on what I called my 'WipEout pad' actually went limp from when I dropped it. At the time it was my only Sixaxis and I didn't want to wear down my Dualshocks from twisting them..

I know they get handled allot but how can your controllers get so bad? As a favour, I gave a new controller I had as a spare to a friend in exchange for two old DS3's and they were filthy. Mine are kept in a draw when I don't use them..

I think the worst condition controllers I've ever had were old Xbox S controllers with a worn out right analog stick from playing too much Unreal Championship.

I really have no idea.I use a grip on mine so I only found the most dirt from the analogs as it's the only spot that's not really covered.The shell itself is a pain to put back together,still trying right now.
