Hnmm, I might have to pick that up just for Pit Figher and Hard Driving!

Now the question is, PS2 or PC.....

You guys do know about MAME right? They have already had those games emulated(and quite well I might add for most of them) for some time... There are now over 2000 unique games/3000 w/ clones emulated ranging from games as old as Pong to the latest, like the Neo Geo series and Sega Model series games. MAME is by far one of the oldest emulators and my favorite emulator! (snowcool)

Not entirely true, that is if you buy some roms off Starroms... (http://www.starroms.com/) A bunch of Atari roms are on there currently. From what I understand if you buy a Hotrod stick you get a Capcom CD (http://www.retroblast.com/reviews/controller2.html) with a bunch of roms that are fully legal as well.

I really wish alot more manufacturers would follow suit, release the roms and start offering them for like X amount of dollars per rom, they could make a killing! :mad: There would also be no more quasi-illegal bruhaha about the roms either, I would have no problem paying a dollar or three a rom to "offically" own a copy of them.

yea.. I only see atari ROMS there.. but that would be nice if they just released it..

On a related note, I'm tempted to buy Time Crisis 3 and Crisis Zone for the PS2, with light guns.. however, it just doesn't haev the same feel, with the recoil and pedal..

ynnek... I think there is a gun for those games that has recoil... but you have to buy it seperately (as far as I know)... the one that comes with Time Crisis 3 doesn't have recoil (for some stupid reason)... maybe they changed now (doubt it)... but I was going to buy it once but after I found out the gun had no "recoil" I decided not to... I like having the gun blow back more than just holding it and shooting things with nothing happening heh.
