    Not a recommendations thread!

    Site starting in September offering downloads of DRM-free PC classics at less thana fiver (US based). All XP and Vista compatible.

    Could well be worth a look in a few months.

    To quote Men In Black: Guess I'll have to buy the White Album again...

    ...but Vista and XP compatibility is (usually) worth it.

    This will last 5 minutes.

    You could pick most of those up at a car boot for 50p.

    XP and Vista compatible? I'll believe it when I see it. What are the doing? Re-coding the games? Pffft, yeah right.

    As soon as LucasArts and whoever has any rights to the Microprose back-catalogue signs up I'm there.

    Microprose came back to life last year, buying back a lot of IP from Atari.

    They're only creating hardware at the moment though, oddly.

    I've got the Dukes of Hazzard theme stuck in my head now. Thanks.

    Quite an interesting interview over at Shacknews with one of their marketing chaps.

    So you could pick it up for 50p then download all the XP/Vista crap for nothing anyway? Great.

    How are they going to provide tech support for that?

    Instead of being all 'cynical and edgy' about it, people could, you know, buy some games from them, try it out. Unless you're all really keen on being anally probed and DNA checked every time you install a game in years to come. Essentially, what you're paying for is the hassle-free install and play without all the fucking about you sometimes need to do to get the older games working.

    Yuh. I'm pretty interested in this, but I'm one of those crazy Abandonware scene peoples who get interested when someone manages to crack a bootloader game.

    Also, I could've sworn we did this thread a few days ago. Not that anything is coming back on search, so I shall forgive w00t yet again.

    What the fuck is edgy about having an opinion on something?

    Good. Now where did I put my colecovision controller?.... the ONLY console released in the last 30 years that's worth its salt. :p

    p.s. The SNES was crap, Halo is shit, Bioshock is overrated etc etc etc

    :)
