EBay Moment of the Month


Not as good as the haunted NES, but still pretty cool.

Want to make games? Here’s a complete playstation DEV setup!
Everything needed to make games, including the drivers and software.
Used to make quake for playstation, comes with ORB-3D test controller. Was bought by acclaim from a bankrupt developer. acclaim in turn went bankrupt itself. Ironic.
Comes with two standard dev controllers, the break box,
and CD rom drive to test games in.Paypal accepted, good luck!


Could this be real ? I’ll have to look into it =O (Not by buying, people, by reading on it) I’m pretty sure the software libraries are more extensive than 3-4 CDs… Then again… could be wrong <.<

Is it real? Or not. I don’t get it. :frowning:

4 bids…

What the hell is that? O_o

Holy shit. Now I want an account on e-bay.

there was a haunted nes???

Yeah, it made moaning sounds and stuff!

We all make moaning sounds! But we’re not haunted.

A development kit for the Playstation. Basically it allows you to run PSX works-in-progress without having to actually burn a CD and load the game the “normal” way. I suck at explaing, so I’ll see if I can’t find you a site that describes it better. :slight_smile:

Also of interest (at least to me), were some blank Genesis cartridge boards.

That kit is actually semi-common, so this auction isn’t entirely unusual. =P

Having said that, it’s still a pretty neat piece of hardware. It’s most practical applications now days though are probably either in helping tranlation work for Playstation games or allowing you to play pirated games on your unmodded Playstation.

Not those moaning sounds, Eva ^.~

Yea, these things arn’t that hard to find :stuck_out_tongue: Still cool. Plus, sony released a devkit to the consumer about a year ago. Same thing as this, except it runs solely on the PS2, no computer required. You need the hard disk attachment to use it, and it is currently out of print. You could probably pick it up on ebay though. <a href=“http://www.us.playstation.com/peripherals.aspx?id=SCPH-97047”>Le Linke</a>.

Now <a href=“http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v239/zeroboo/psp_dev_kit.jpg”>this</a> sucker…oh man. <a href=“http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v239/zeroboo/psp_dev_kit.jpg”>This</a> one makes me drool. Thats a normal PS2 (with devkit “tool” attached) attached to the PSP devkit. That sucker can run PS2 games on a PSP, and even includes a UMD writer, so you can write them to UMD when you’re done. You won’t be able to get anywhere near it without a developer license, but still, pretty cool :stuck_out_tongue:

If I recall correctly, there was a college that used the official Playstation dev kit for one of its courses. I think the dev kit’s name was Yahkuzoo or something. It started with a “ya”, cuz it always makes me think of Yahtzee when I think of it. :stuck_out_tongue:
