I doubt you'd be interested in sending it to Georgia in the U.S.

(actually I'd be very surprised if you had a problem getting rid of it for that price around here)

Mac versions of Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare and Toca Race Driver 3.

Why not Windows versions? I didn't want the hassle of booting into Windows every time I wanted to play them.

Also, I think when I eventually sell them on, they'll hold their value better than the Windows ones.

Despite being a retro gamer at heart, I've finally started playing games on the xbox360. Although it has been difficult working my way through Modern Warfare 2 as just blown away in awe of the amazing realistic graphics and consequently getting killed. A lot. How far games has come, eh?

Anyhow, today I bought Race Driver: Grid Reloaded. Hoping to load it up for first time in a little while....

Was actually bought for me (birthday present). Cisco Flip video ultraHD. Works great (as much as it can on a 060) with the 1200 tower. Records to .mp4 into the devices DCIM (where else?) directory, holds 60 minutes of video (not sure of the actual memory specs, though I'm sure they're documented), and recordings seem to be of reasonable quality. Mp4 seems a bit heavy for ffplay, but ffmpeg can convert them to .avi with little trouble. Some patience required if doing that on a 060 though..



proof it works under os 3.9.

This way the 320x200/256 res games with "good gameplay" can have pixels the size of tetris blocks.
