Bought all of this for 70. Jealous? Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous Bought all of this for 70€. Jealous?
All mid and aged like milk
>the zoomie camps out threads just to post this
Awww lil zoomie, you're retarded and there is no help coming, juts lay down in the garden and let the moss reclaim you
Correct opinion in the first post
Might as well emulate.
PAL is literally superior to ntsc
>Pal is superior to ntsc
HAAAAH! Holy fucking COPE!
Ya I fucking love a sea of white where I can't fucking tell what's what even when in alphabetical order
Oh fuck what is this madness, I can recognize each title at a glance, this is INSANE
Imagine being so poor you couldn't play or understand the UK or Japanese released of video games
You need the Europoor Pal releases
And you pay more for them because they had to cram in a bunch of half-assed languages, yours included
Most people I knew growing up online from France, Germany, and the Netherlands imported their games from the UK because lol @ PAL releases but to be fair, Germany releases of many games were fucked to begin with
What are you even on about
UK is a PAL region retard
In modern times, yes. Not back before the fifth gen.
>source: my ass
>hurrr I'm a zoomer who is le skeptical about all of the things before I was literally born
Nobody fucking cares, you impotent gay.
Post a source of stfu dumb moron
Yes it was.
Fucking hell, what a waste of money. All those shitty conversions, Jesus christ
i'm australian and have done digital video for more than half of my life and trust me bro you are retarded and pal sucks
thats why the ps1 classic was such a success right
>PAL PS1 games
No one tell him
Doesn't matter for games that are locked at 30fps.
>he doesn't know
Enjoy you4 25fps
It so does. I live in a PAL region and used to order games from the USA cause even if you ignore the framer rate,
the colors weren’t as good.
Cool, enjoy playing maybe 2 of them for an hour each and saying 'neat' before shelving them forever
Fucking zoomers man…
Basically what I just did in collecting psp games, star ocean was cool but maaaannnn, I'd be a lot cooler in 1080p with trophies on my tv.
I can play them all for free. With a better resolution and frame rate and using a better controller. So no, not jealous.
as long as you actually plan on playing all of them its not a bad purchase
Cool buy bro. I own most of those too.
>PAL PS1 games
getting your hands on NTSC PS1 games in Europe is a fucking bitch though, I hate it.
>discs face down
Bottom is covered, top is not, kiddo.
>Bottom is covered
Yeah, in scratches because you keep putting your discs face down like a moron.
Now show me your japanese games
You got ripped off.
c-can i come over?
I got Silent Hill 2 for $1 a few years ago, but not bad for 70 quid
Why are the PAL cases so much superior to the NTSC ones?
PAL is a crime against humanity.
NTSC-J is the way to go
To bad resellers have caught on, and have started buying up Japanese stock to re-sell at retarded prices.
good thing people had a 30 year window to buy them for cheap
Doesn't help me since I wasn't born until the early 2000s and I didn't start buying retro games until I was 13 in 2016, had help from getting hand-me-downs from my dad and uncle but when it came to imports I couldn't buy them very often due to a very limited budget.
That's why emulators are a thing.
I like the authentic experience, that's why I went with flash carts so I didn't have to buy from re-sellers.
I thought flash carts were almost exclusively sold by resellers to avoid legal issues tho.
> to TRY to re-sell at retarded prices.
Fixed. Idk Murrica, but here in Europe, you can follow a lot of particular sellers of ntsc-j stuff and it's great getting notifications "10 euros cheaper" every two weeks because they are starting to caught on the fact nobody will pay more than 20 euros for a Japanese game.
It's funny seeing them drom from 80 to even 15.
Do you know any good sellers for jp stuff in Europe? I've been wanting to get into pc-engine stuff after playing it a lot on emulators.
Used goods buying/selling apps? We have "wallapop" in my country. I think Vinted operates in a few countries.
Nobody fucking wants the Japanese version of games, even the ones that are region free. It's purely a market fabricated by idiots who don't even play video games thinking with a Tulip/Tea market mindset.
The moment a gay anywhere tries to upsell a common game because it's in Japanese, I straight up tell them it's worth $10 and not a penny more. They get so fucking frustrated when somebody tells them how it is. It's even more fucking hilarious when you get into things like the Japanese versions of Yugioh and Pokemon cards... the only people these scammers end up selling to are naive parents who also think from a tulip/tea market mindset because they're ignorant boomers who think Edison was a witch. All they know is "my child likes video game, and video game was made in Japan, so it's more authentic somehow!"
I bought few Famicom games because I liked the art on the cartridges.
Good lucking trying to find an NTSC PS and games in EU. Especially for those prices.
It's easy if you aren't retarded
ntsc ps is easy as fuck just go on ebay and games are way too expensive just hack it and play them for free
? I don't understand what does it matter in PS1 games
You have to be older than 18 to post here
and you need to suck a moron dick and kys since you are over 30yo and no longer needed by society diaper babby
Didn't know it was in 30fps games as well, good to know!
>Calls me old
>Calls me a baby
You're still underage. We can all tell.
Assuming you're actually retarded and not just trolling PAL games run about 17% slower than NTSC-U or NTSC-J games.
Oh no, not muh 17%!
very important stuppid retard, do you even play video games?
that's about 25 fps on a 30fps game so its barley playable
Any good comparisons of some games running in multiple regions? I'd love to see this. 17% is insane.
One of the most famous examples of this shit is Sonic the Hedgehog on the Megadrive, google it
I can't find any examples without some gay YouTubers talking over it.
Got a link to a good example?
Holy shit yuros were absolutely cucked on videogames all throught the 90s. I had no idea kek. This shit looks unplayable.
>PAL slowdown + squeezed picture cancer (lazy developers not bothering to optimize their shit for PAL)
>games releasing 1-2 years later
>many games not releasing at all
it was extremely cancerous, and only started getting better in the PS2/GC gen when they introduced 60Hz modes (and even then not all games supported them).
most of the time we didn't have access to progressive scan either.
a-at least we had SCART and a very clean picture, amirite?
Wrong you fucking zoomer. It was the dreamcast in 99 which introduced 60hz picture modes
>dreamcast autist spergs out at the mere mention of other consoles
I said PS2/GC *gen*.
also nobody bought the dreamcast
If it wasn't for the dreamcast doing it, the ps2 or the gc definitely wouldn't have done it. But you don't know what you're talking about so what's the point
Wasn't just the 90s, devs kept releasing 50hz-only games all the way through the PS2. Many major PS2 games like DMC, Kingdom Hearts and FFX still ran 17% slower. Despite the PAL PS2 supporting 60hz.
Not only that but most games skipped Europe as well during that era. Dragon Quest wouldn't come to Europe until the ps2 and final fantasy with the ps1.
That's why later games came with 60hz modes/alterations to make them faster
>just slowed down
Hi zoomers. If you actually research how shit was back then you'd realise that they sounded the same and the games were optimized. This video is nothing like how it was.
>Played PAL Sonic games on Mega Drive
>Didn't know any better
>Eventually play Sonic games on the Sonic Mega Collection (NTSC)
>Because of the long time between playing, I didn't notice a difference
>One day I go over to a friends house
>He's pulled his Mega Drive out of his attic just for giggles
>With a more direct comparison, the game now seems unplayable to me.
>Friends just think I'm crazy and don't know what I'm talking about
Holy shit its really fucking bad. How did Europeans live with this shit?
They didn't know any better at the time.
people knew because of video game magazines complaining about it and doing comparisons with NTSC versions (remember that video games weren't as much of a normalfag hobby as nowadays), but there was barely anything we could do about it anyway because developers and publisher didn't give a fuck and they knew they could get away with it.
I'd rather have 100 Columbines a day than live in EU lol.
Higher resolution though on Pal
>puts black bars and squeezes the image to compensate for the missing lines in your way
Tales of Symphonia's PAL version on the GC also ran 16.66% slower. It was so fucking sluggish. I was eager to play the game so I had imported the NTSC-U version, and when I showed it to my friends who had the PAL version they were blown away.
Another meme for retards like CTR. I wonder what will be next
>Look, to experience Playstation games you NEED to buy the official X-rocker chair!!! It's the only way to truly appreciate the colours in-game!!!!
What does Crash Team Racing have to do with this?
Funnily enough, for Crash 1 Naughty Dog actually put the work in for the PAL release. There are also less checkpoints.
who needs 30fps? am i right, fellas?
Old PAL games ran worse (20% slower than NTSC). Unless you're speedrunner, getting PAL versions was dumb idea. In PS1 era NTSC could have 30FPS games performance while PAL only ran on 20-25FPS.
>Unless you're speedrunner, getting PAL versions was dumb idea
I hope you meant to say "is". Regional versions existed for a reason back then.
>Not EX 2 Plus
Absolutely worthless. And it's time to move to hard drive storage as discs are starting to rot, making them worthless unless they haven't been ripped. Good for nostalgia though.
Topic so good, OP had to make his thread twice.
The difference is on Ganker he can't be a dick since trolling is banned there.
PAL versions are trash so not really
fucking killer collection! good find
Imagine playing FFVII 17% slower. For every hour you play you have to play 17 more minutes, that's fucking insane.
Tifa's tits are higher res though and I get to see them for longer, so I guess that makes you gay anon
Some PAL games actually sped up the gameplay to compensate for the lower frame rate but I don't know if FFVII was one of them.
FFIX definitely wasn't, it was apparently close to impossible to get excalibur II in time on the PAL version without doing some hack that involved scratching the CD disc that made you skip cutscenes
A couple of years ago an anon here actually got Excalibur II on PAL without the CD removal exploit.
American education at work.
I emulate it all for free. Sounds like you're bad with money.
>Why have sex when you can watch porn?
Pirates are like a suave playboy that makes all the ladies swoon over him for free while buyfags are the factory workers that have to buy prostitutes
Hostia tío, final fantasy 7 mejor juego de la historia chaval, lo jugaba con mi primo Manolo en la play uno yo flipo
My phone run all of them for free, but I chose not playing all this mainstream normalcuck slop shit, because my taste is objectively better than yours.
Don't care about a poofters opinion
..but enough talking about (You).
wow, there's gayry, being an esl, being a coomer, and buzzwords all in one post. let me get my bingo card
not jealous what so ever
funny, beause im selling those in my euro shithole for 1€ each and still nobody wants them
you should have gotten the American version of 6. it comes with 5 for free
and the sound track to both games
What a waste.
Thank God the PS2 had 60 hz PAL games. Some games I'm interested in were only released in Europe and Japan for some reason.
>CDs out of case and face down on the ground where they can easily get scratched
I want to fucking strangle you you fucking retard.
You're being racist anon
>have European PSX
>only played NTSC games on it
The first Playstation was called PSX on every official Playstation magazine. You'd know this if you were actually able to read back then.
Nobody called it the PSX until the PS2 was announced.
When PS2 was out everyone called it PSOne. Which was the new model. I remember reading they called it PSX because PS was too close to PC.
Magazine codes were restricted to three letter keys. The Gameboy was DMG. Gamecube was NGC. Xbox was XBX. The PlayStation was PSX for, "Play Station eXperience", which is why the West calls the cross button the "ecks button" on the PlayStation; SCEA kept marketing the cross button in advertising as being an X.
That's not why I call it the Ex-Button. I call it that because it looks like the letter "x" in the alphabet.
But why is the Gameboy DMG?
Dot Matrix Game. "DMG-XX" is in reference to individual game cartridges, with "XX" being whatever the two character alphanumeric letters/numbers that followed.
>"DMG-XX" is in reference to individual game cartridges
It's both actually. As far as I can tell, games used letters (which I just learned today) and accessories used numbers.
>The Gameboy was DMG.
My exposure to magazines at the time is pretty limited but I don't think I've ever seen a magazine use DMG instead of GB. Official model numbers and accessories used DMG-XX, I know that much.
>My stupid ass thought magazines just included Gameboy games as GBC games because I didn't know what the fuck a DMG was
>The first Playstation was called PSX on every official Playstation magazine
Oh, so suddenly game journalists are correct and objective facts aren't?
Back in the day they were. Especially the official magazines.
If you look, it clearly says "PSX" on the top of what I posted, but curiously, if we look at the original playstation it doesn't. So as we can see, I'm correct
>People who like retro games use the (correct) retro terminology for the thing
What a surprise!
Only the ZN was called the PSX apart from the PSX ps2 model
Just check Wikipedia https://ja.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_(%E3%82%B2%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A0%E6%A9%9F)
Anon, don't embarrass yourself, I've already won
Here's your prize.
The original playstation was called neither psx nor ps1, just playstation. PS-X was the codename of the project which was later dropped to differentiate it from PC-FX. But the name PSX already spread in the media, despite no longer being official and PS only added 1 to the name because of 2.
I never said it was it's official name. I said someone uses the retro enthusiast terminology correctly, and they did.
Thanks for confirming I was right bro
>hey, can you help me move these goal posts? They are kinda heavy bro
I know, that's why I agree with you.
As someone who owned an original playstation I can confirm it was called PSX, before the released the slimmed down version(ps1)
I had one too. It said Playstation on it, nothing more. You called it a Playstation.
The timing will still be slightly off unless your system has a NTSC clock capacitor hardmodded in. The best option for PAL region is to softmod a compatible PS2 with mechapwn, will run any PS1 games at the correct speed (including burned discs).
>Final fantasy VI, VII and fucking VIII
How did you miss the only good one?
>FF7 black label
Might as well brag again about getting a PS3 for $12.99 Canadian and MGS4/Virtua Fighter V for $0.99.
Wow PS3's are cheap now
So what's the explanation for why the EU used 50/20hz.
europe is poor. low class in america is richer than european middle class in dollar value.
Probably because dollar is worth less than euro.
yeah euros are poorfags
Pretty cool. Where did you find these?
Up your moms butthole
LOOK AT THIS PAL
imagine wastin 70 cuck bux on that shit when you can emulate it for free
why don't people just emulate? is nostalgia that much of a drug for you?
No, because I own the originals I bought on launch day
>all this Ganker autism just because its pal
tgo back and kys
I've bought a PS1, PSOne, a PS2 fat, a PS2 slim, a GC, and a Dreamcast from Japan, plus 3 Vitas, 3 PSPs, and 1 new 3DS LL plus a TON of games for each for fairly cheap. Dreamcast and PSOne haven't arrived yet, but everything else has and I've been playing them all a lot
It's kind of outrageous how expensive old games are in the US. In Japan you can pay like 1000-1500 yen for multiple boxes full of old games, meanwhile in the US garden gnomes try to charge you like 20-50 bucks for a single game
I literally bought all of these when they were released and still keep them
Last time I got a physical haul was when some guy died and they needed to clear out his storage unit so I got a huge pile of ps2 and ps1 games plus other nerd junk like mtg cards and unopened dnd / pathfinder shit for free.
>disks sitting straight on the ground
get those discs off the floor
tf is wrong with you
why would i be jealous of something that i can have in ~30 minutes for free?
>Bought all of this for 70€. Jealous?
No. I could download all roms for free and emulate them. You're just a retard who loves wasting money.
the world wasn't prepared for the superiority of PAL-M.
Based. I never saw the Silent Hill PAL cover, looks cool.
Also, didn't FF6 ship in a collection on PS1? Never saw it sold individually.
got picrel for 11 bucks
pretty kino, though I overestimated 儂の日本語です
That early 3D model of Ryu looks better than any current existing in-game 3D model of Ryu from an art direction perspective
>could of got 70 cheeseburgers instead
jealous of what?
if i was a rich sociopath I would setup a system of employees who would buy millions of these until I possess everything then I would pretend to destroy all of them except 100 to increase their price to like 5000 dollars, then people would buy it from people who hoarded it for 5k, then I would reveal that I didnt destroy anything and sell them for 1$, and collectors and speculators would be mad for wasting their money. would serve them right. anyway
I was until I saw Final Shitasy. Fuck you.
>zoomers unironically getting into arguments over DMG, PSX, PAL vs NTSC, etc
I don't understand why people born after the year 2000 enjoy roleplaying as Millennials online and then getting into arguments over commonly known details that are demonstrable facts. I can appreciate a five year old putting on his father's clothes and being all like, "whoa hey I'm mister big business man, cancel my meetings, raise my salary" but when someone in their early to mid 20s is fucking doing it on Ganker, it's just fucking weird.
I own a modded one so i don't need to buy ps1 games.
I just burn any games i want to play on console Mostly multiplayer ones.
Usually i just emulate pc though
>Someone took the FFX demo sticker off your FFVI.
That sucks bro.
Most PS1 games where coded to compensate for the lower Hz.
FF7 and 8 run at the right speed in PAL versions, FF9 for some reason doesn't, I'm assuming because the main team was working on FF10 at that point.
CMR 2.0 is a very weird case, it runs at the correct speed in the PAL version, but for some reason runs SLOW in the NTSC version. How they managed to fuck that I up I don't know.
CMR 2.0 was developed as a PAL game.
i can play all of that for free on my computer 🙂
what the fuck kind of currency is that?
>There are now over 2 billion active internet users thanks to India finally updating their infrastructure, and the internet had been worse off ever since
don't put your PS1 discs on the floor like that, they are not BluRay and will scratch easily making the games unplayable. hope you have a CRT to go with it, otherwise cool pickup
