Wouldn't be suprised if it launches at that at some places.

Where do you folks normally get new release games?
For in store purchases I've always found tesco to be very competitive. They're normally £5 or more cheaper than the specialist shops.

Egret 2 bulb

Can anyone tell me the specification of the bulb in an E2 in the header? It's a flourescent tube correct?
I guess I need a voltage and size?

If anyone's got a good source that they've used to buy one that'd be sweet too!

Re: Xbox Kinect

I'm really dubious. Since I know my friend'll pick one up at lauch I'll probably give it a go and see. I like the idea of voice commands and the semi intergrated stuff they're planning for fable 3 and the like but I'm not at all interested in kinecktimals and whatnot.

Re: Introduce yourself here!

I've been promising myself a cab for years. I knew of this place but was planning on getting a neo woody in the next month or so. Then I had to pop to crackhorn's house about a dreamcast. He had ibara in his astro. Suddenly a candy seemed like the way to go... I'm more or less clueless about the tec...

It was dreamcast. There are actually 2 resident evil dreamcasts, both NTSC-J, one pretty uncommon, the other pretty rare.

I own neither :(

a guy on the neo-geo,com forums was doing some but he just did a bunch and I don't think he'll be doing any for a while. There's probably the best place to ask anyway

Cab advice for a first timer

Hi, I'm hoping some of you wise folks can offer some advice to a newcomer. I've never owned a cab but I've wanted one for years. Now's the time to buy! I just need a little help deciding what I should pick up. Here's my reasoning so far: I know precious little about hardware but a fair bit about gam...
