That is a good deal, I wouldn't mind one myself (at that price)

I just got a Sega Saturn from e-bay. The console plus 15 games for £55 - well worth it to add to my growing console collection..

What games did you get from this offer, birdy? And is it a chipped Saturn?

The games I got were:

Tomb Raider
Fighting Vipers
Theme Park
NHL 97
FIFA 98
Andretti Racing
Wipeout
PGA Tour97
Resident Evil
Virtua Fighter 1+ 2
NBA Jam
Sega Rally
Command and Conquer
World Cup Golf
Worldwide Soccer 97

And I've just got another bundle of a lightgun, steering wheel and Virtua Cop, Daytona USA and another racer for £22 - I like it.

It's not chipped, but I saw a cartridge for sale which does the job, I'll probably get that.

BIRDY! Watch out! What the cartridge will allow you to, is play IMPORT games in your Saturn, NOT copied games. If you were looking for a CDR mod, a cart won't do it (if they tell you it does, they are blatantly LYING). If your Saturn is of the new type (round power and reset buttons, not oval ones) then you might be able to find a 21-pin modchip to play CDRs. If you have an ole model (like me) you are, basically, fucked :P

If you were just looking for country lock modification, the cart will do. You could get an Action Replay 5 in 1 (extra memory + import player + cheats, you will NEED the extra memory thing for some games. Make sure the cart has extra memory for playing games like XMen vs Street Fighter, and that the RAm si not just for savegames. Ask before buying), but they are kind of rare and cost around 50 dollars, though there are clones. The other option is installing a country switch mod in your Saturn, for around the same cash as an Action Replay or less, and much more reliable.

If you need any help, ask me and I'll try to give ya a hand


Getting back on topic, that's one helluva fucking sweet deal. Though these Dreamcasts cannot play copied games, to teh pirates discontent. I'll prolly get one, its mega cheap man! and ive been wanting a dreamcast for long, and i dont feel like springing 260 dollars for buying one locally (bloody thieves)

finally, Fred... You look for one but you never get one, lazzyarse. eBay is chockful of unloved un wanted saturns

Yeah, best to buy from EBay, Fred, you don't wanna try to deal with blatant rip-off merchants like this company :

http://www.telegames.co.uk/teleg_10.html :thumbs_do

But yeah, it sucks that there's no CDR solution for the 1st-model Saturn , consider I have a working 1st-m one with a country switch in the cartridge slot AND a 50Hz/60Hz switch at the back (thanks to Computer Exchange, whom I bought this special Saturn from ). Ironically, I also have a 2nd-model Saturn but its CD laser reading thing is fucked!

Thanks for the info Akira, I'll be careful - though I actually don't want copies.



The prices on that site are stupid, you're right Marz.

Obviously it's new stuff, but still...

Wrong, there is, but 20 pin mods are fecking hard to find... and if yuo do find one, they cost a fortune.

BTW why the fuck do you have a country switch in the cart slot? you inhabilited the Saturn to use expansion cartridges!

Birdy: no prob, if you need further info, let me know

Telegames suck. Thieves, they are!
