    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    So, I just got my very first Japanese Gamecube game. Metal Gear Solid The Twin Snakes.

    I've seen Japanese packaging many times over the years, but this is the first time I've handled one of these myself irl.
    Cover art for PAL version of this game is just as good as this imo, unlike the US version.
    But the Japanese packaging overall... man, this is awesome. Like a small book. I imagine the cardboard slip cover could be easily damaged but this one I have is nice. 2 disc and the arrangement is interesting including where the manual and other paperwork resides.




    I'm kinda tempted to collect some more of these Japanese games now
    Although I might just look up what other Japanese games that have some English options via menu... and possibly other exclusives even if they don't have English.


    Is it possible to get protective sleeves for these Japanese Gamecube releases?

    I hooked up my Japanese 'cube to my 32" trintron via s-video old school.
    Pretty surprised how good the audio is for that game.

    Thats wild. Very complicated and invasive mod, but I've seen worse. The results seem well worth the effort though.

    Yeah it's interesting but I wouldn't bother doing it myself tbh. Spend all that money and then have a heap of work to do
    I have several PS3's with full CFW and Playstation Classic. My original consoles look ok using s-video output on crt.

    If the ODE was a simple PnP like GCLoader is now I'd consider it.

    I use my PSTV to play psx backups on a modern tele. It's acceptable.

    Those were never dirt cheap at any point over here and I never got the chance to import one for a reasonable price from OS.

    I do have 2x Vita consoles though, one OLED and a later slim.

    Thats a bummer. Over here they seemed to have gone the way of the WiiU.

    Wii U you can get used much much cheaper than PSTV, but it still isn't dirt cheap like other consoles. I still don't have one.
