    PS 4 or XBox One.

    I am buying a console for my children and access will be dictated by good behaviour and schoolwork. I haven't bought a new console since the PS2 and am torn between the PS4 (I might want to play PES, Metal Gear and Gran Turismo) and the XBox One (which seems to have much stronger parental...
  2. Game consoles

    I've been umming & ahhhing over getting a console....so can someone give me some prompting in what to get? All these modern games all seem so complicated, sometimes I think I'd rather go back to the simplicity of an N64.

    Sega Megadrive I & II

    Does anyone have a fully working Sega Megadrive I or II or both they dont want anymore? Ideally with TV RF cable and power cable. Recently bought a Megadrive II from a boot sale but the power pin on the console is loose and keeps cutting off :thumbdown:. Had a look on Ebay last week and...

    Accessible Gaming

    Afternoon ladies and gents, A friend of mine is a very keen gamer but due to his disability is finding a number of console games hard to play. He's written a blog piece and is involved in a petition, it's all here: http://caasi-619.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/remapping.html He's quite an...

    Old Games Console with New TV

    Has anyone attempted to play an old console on a new TV and had problems? Decided to fire up the old N64 (greatest console of all time), but I can't get it to pick up. :sad: I've got a Toshiba TV (about 2-2.5 years ago). I have bought an AV conector for the N64 (the yellow, red, white wire...
  9. X-Box One

    Though I've lost all interest in playing computer games, this caught my eye on the BBC website: The X-Box console (and maybe the new Sony PS4) will require you to pay the full price of the game when you buy it second hand, or even just borrow it from a mate. Nice...

    Play Station

    Hello All Been debating getting a play station for a while now. Seems like you can pick them up for next to nothing. Is there any reason for this. Are Sony bringing out anything new that I need to be aware of. Kids at any age where they are starting to ask for a console and dont want to be...

    Help with PS3 Console and Games

    Hi All, I have spent months considering purchasing an Xbox or PS3. Yesterday I decided to act with sheer spontaneity, walk into a store, eye up the offers, having walked in their originally to look at Wii games, and allowed myself to be distracted into making a purchase. I phoned a friend and...
  14. What to do with my PS3

    Over the last three or four weeks my PS3's been slowly going a bit Bilel Mohsni... Turning itself off, taking a while to boot, starting fights with opposition strikers, erasing preset HDMI settings and the like. This culminated in yesterday's horror show of turning itself on while I was at work...

    Fifa 11 Download Entrance/Chants Here!

I know there is already a thread about this but from this one, you can actually download the files all at once and they are ready to be used. In these...

    After Aldershot (A)

    This weeks Pringello Index is dominated by Glenn Morris. Despite conceding a late goal, a good display from the number 1, including some good reflex saves and handling in tricky conditions, have seen Morris pick up not only the Top Player Award but also the Most Improved Player Award for his...

    Hi mods, This is just my personal view, but I am not a fan of all the sub-forms... There is too much 'click-through' and for the casual user, for example the TechnoZone was fine as it was and didn't really need to be split up further... also it may mean that people with a general interest in...

    Hi all, Something which has been bugging me for a long time, is getting a capture card, to record footage from a video console. Problem is, I play in HD, and would prefer to play in HD whilst recording onto my computer, in standard definition. I had the thought the other day, of getting a...
