      Has anyone played the Initial D game at the arcades?? I find it one of the best driving/racing games i have ever played!! If you see it around, try it out!! i spent $10 on it and i know i will spend more in the near future!!

      you spent $10, i’ve spent $30, and i still haven’t got use to playing it, the trick to winning is drifting, and i’ll tell you, with out any knowledge of this, even though many may be good at gt3, you’ll have no chance, this is one of the most realistic racing simulations, you’ll ever see, i can’t wait till initial d special stage comes out on ps2, then i won’t be wasting too much money, btw, takumi’s dad is the last guy in the game (the boss), and in a 22b, he has to go hardcore, it will take you at least $100 to finish the game at the arcade, and that’s if you beat each opponent first time. There is a huge learning curve, but if you want to play, i’ll take any of you guys up on that challenge, george street tomorrow. It’s a excellent game, worth the money : )

(I never knew the tofu business can get so much $$) i hope theres a PAL version of the initial D title on PS2 because i just love the music. Well ill be poping down to the arcades more often.

      you get 50 saves, then you have to get a new card, which costs whatever it costs to get it the first time

      Slightly off the topic, but still on Initial D…

      Almost bought the series 1 (boxset), 2(boxset), 3 and the extra stage DVDs today, until I worked out how much it would have been… (close to 300bucks)

      It’s gonna take me forever to save up that much money… :dead:

      um!! if you have a jap ver1 you can convert it into jap ver2. so thats pretty cool, but you have to pay for the new one!! 😯 ~ well i live in melbourne and all the china town arcades have jap ver 2 so thats where i find it, but i can never play as it is always busy.

      I don’t mind if we talk about Mods chips etc, but ONLY if we avoid the temptation to talk about pirated software.

      Remember her ein Australia the act of ‘modding’ is not illegal (has a legal Precedent) however the exchange or copying of software is. That said individual license agreements on products my hold a clause that deems you to breaching the agreement by ‘modding’ the player/console.

      Basically it’s a bit of a rocky area of law, but actual discussion is fine with me!

      nope! the arcades across chinatown dont have supersessions so it will drain my cash flow. All those arcades there are privately owned. when i went to sydney during christmas i sawthat “galaxy world” dunno if thats rite but they all had ver2. prob have supersessions there if they are like timezone?? well i onli find initial D in small arcades not boring old timezones….:dead:

      btw ms_char-ged i heard that if you get your ps2 modded it has a great chance of f**kin up!! is it true??

      completely false, it cost me $90 for the chip, and $90 for the action replay 2, that you have to use to boot up the games, i can play any games except japanese or american imports (originals), you can get a special chip, that is self booting, and has no bugs, but it costs $300, worth it if your a serious gamer. Be warned, the usb chips are the ones that **** up your machine, and they are the reason why so many machines **** up, it’s because they are installed by a lousy technician, you really do pay for the service, so don’t even try to install it yourself, unless you really know how to. And boungah, galaxy world don’t have special sessions.

      As for the games. *shrugs* They’re mostly crap. (at least the genres of games I like are crap on the PS2)

      nope, too young but i have played one recently. The oldest console i had was a sega with alex the kid in-built. WOW i still have it but one of the cables is broken so i cant play it. 🙁 i think older consoles are more fun because the games are cheaper and nothing is better than the originals. i would still pick alex the kid over most or todays top titles etc. Vice City, Marios and final fantasys. i never got to finish it, i reached the boss but couldnt finish the game. but i reckon i can beat it now.. i think??

      ps2 ~ over rated
      and you can’t play all the dvd’s!
      I waited forever and ever for the ps2 to release then it had all the bugs, when the main reason I wanted it for was the dvd player.
      Now I have complete home theatre and an xbox plugged in for good measure (as well as the standard couple of vcrs and stereo’s)
      anyone want to buy a sony stereo?
      sony sava 7 speakers?
      entertainment units?
      bass kicker parcel shelf speaker kit?
      damn, I knew I shouldn’t have bought the new $3K kit until I got rid of the old stuff.
      *drags self back to topic*

      The point here is that different consoles have different things to offer different people. The only reason we have so much choice is because people are different and what they like is different too.

      Pretty dull if we all liked the same thing and only had one console to choose from huh?

      So no one person is wrong or right, we are all just entitled to our own opinions!

      And that’s my bit!

      very true Kitty, i jus think the Ps2 is a little better. the Xbox controller and Gamecube controller IMO are very hard to use, guess all those years of punishing small gamepads has made that up for me:smiley2:

      Yeah thats cool, this topic has gone off topic but its still good because its still going on and on and on. blackeye: kittykat what do you mean the ps2 doesnt play all DVDs?? It has never failed me yet..and i agree with shypo the ps2 controller is more better than GCN and Xbox.

      I have heard they have problems playing normal DVD’s (movies) as in they will freeze and just not play past a certain point.
      I had that problem once with a normal DVD player!
      The point is, the winning console will be the one that can play burnt DIVX movies……

      At least that will be the one that I buy.

      Back to cars though, a friend gave me a link to a site that has a 400+ Horsepower LS1 V8 powered Mazda RX7s!

      AWESOME!!!

      Go to http://www.hinsonsupercars.com/

      WOW!

      Whoever did that should b shot, an RX7 isnt an RX7 unless it has a rotary.
