    Cocktail Mame cabinet

    I have Mame'd a cocktail cab which I got (the game board and PSU were dead). It was quite easy to get an ATX mobo, PSU and small LCD display in the cab. I really think they are only suitable for 'simple' 2D stuff. Perfect for Galaga etc, but I would not want to play 3rd strike on it!! Personal preference I suppose...

    The RROD thread

    I am waiting for my machine to be returned after 2 and a a half weeks now. Quick question to all who returned them to Microsoft via a courier. Did the courier supply a box? The UPS guy who picked mine up said that they never do, but the guy at Microsoft said the courier would supply a box. Its just that that I had to quickly put my machine in a box for the courier so used my original 360 box (making sure it was empty). Will I get my box back, or will I have to phone Microsoft 5 times (which is how many calls it took for them to give me some free Gamerpoints I got from signing up to Xbox live last year) to get my box back?

    Well my 360 died tonight, hardware failure is the error code 3 red lights on the circle. I feel kind of happy to be in the 'my 360 died' club, in some sick sort of way. Its about 8-9 months old and really does not get played much, poor show. I am also going to ask Microsoft why after 3 phone calls to their helpline over the last few months I still have not received my 'free' gamerpoints for signing upto Xbox live last year (a 'special' offer they are now repeating it seems).

    Wii Pre Order Websites/Locations

    Nope, its totally true. Mate of mine works for them and even he didnt get his 360 until 2 weeks after launch and then only after moaning. It may have even be him who originally posted that on another forum. I recall him having a 'chat' with his boss not long after that info was leaked.

    This Xbox £80 Trade In For The 360

    I spoke to my local GAME yesterday and they said they would give £60 trade in for an Xbox against a 360. So there you go.

    Gamestation - The Debate

    About 2 months ago I tried to buy a copy of Alien Soldier from the Cambridge branch which was priced at about £6. Got to the till and the girl (yes a girl) punched it into the till, then some bloke behind the counter peered over her shoulder said 'thats priced wrong you cant have it' and proceded to reprice it at £65. It was still sat on the shelf a week or so ago.
