If you thought video now was bad look at this goddamn thing. LOOK AT IT!
As dead as the Oculus Rift.
Is Sega Channel the physical embodiment of vaporwave? It's so mysterious, like the tipping point between 90's and 2000's tech. Who knows how many dark secrets are hidden in tangled 256k wires and hard drives left in some Jap dev's closet?
Actually, all of the early attempts at online play are really interesting to me.
I know you forgot about me, /v/. But I never forgot about you.
i have this, they're white though
this reminds me of those videos of the nintendo wfc getting shut down
it's an obscure feel
anyone remember this?
I had one and it was handy as fuck. it attached to a GBA and could hold 3 games.
So literally how did this work?
Was awesome for long car rides.

I remember this from some unboxing thread, it's an official Nintendo-licensed Philips gamecube, in addition to playing gamecube games I believe it could do dvds, too. Among other thing I'm sure.
I remember I had something like this based on power rangers as a kid
it was a shitty LCD game but the idea of it kept me interested for a little while at least.
Honestly I think playing that thing and realizing that just having something seem a little more real by having it shoved in my face that way didn't really help is why I'm still convinced VR is a shitty fad that'll fuck off within five years.
sorry I'm retarded, I even searched panasonic q like it's actually called
no idea why I said philips
The error screens creeped me the fuck out as a kid
>Actually, all of the early attempts at online play are really interesting to me.
I'm amazed with Satellaview more than Sega Channel as far as the whole online gaming attempts, especially with collaborating with some radio station that only played jazz and ambience to broadcast games and radio plays all to a Super Famicom.
This one is underrated as fuck and its great
And I still have it, anyone know what it was for? I don't remember at all.
>There are people on /v/ right now who never experienced Steel Battalion
><RiVolt> anyone here play myth: the fallen lords?
><Jigen> its shit
It looks like a knockoff Atari 7800 controller.
I remember begging my parents to get me one of these. Thank fucking christ they didnt.
>GameLine was a service offered by Control Video Corporation that allowed you to download games to the VCS/2600 over regular phone lines via the use of their GameLine Master Module. The complete kit contains the Master Module (an 8K RAM cartridge with internal 1200 baud modem), telephone connecting cord, a duplex T-adapter, owner's manual, registration guide, GameLine membership cards, and "temporary" game directory & instructions. It originally sold for $49.95 and there was a one-time membership fee of $15. Charges were about $.10 a game or $1 for up to an hour of play. Contest games were $1 and there was a $.50 charge to enter a score. Once it connected, it downloaded the menu program to the battery-backed 2K of RAM. A title screen appeared and "Assembly of Trumpeters For Reveille (First Call)" played. Next, a screen appeared for you to enter a 3-digit number for your ID, and after that another screen where you selected the game you wanted via a 3-digit number, or you could enter 999 for a special "browse" menu. Once the game loaded, a screen would appear with both the game's name and the company who made it, and a tune very similar to the German Army WWI bugle call "No. 2 Battery" played. On your birthday, a screen would appear with the message, "Happy Birthday! All of your play today is free!" while the first 2 bars of "Happy Birthday" played. One of the game catalogs that was archived lists 76 games which included Save The Whales - a game long thought to be vaporware until it was found years later. The GameLine system became QuantumLink (also known as Q-Link), an online service for Commodore computer users, which became America On-Line, the most successful online service ever.

Wow, so we have Atari to thank for all those discs hanging in my tree scaring the birds away.
you think I didn't know that? I was referring to the threads we had about that game when it first came out, finding secrets and stuff. It was pretty fun, nothing truly substantial came out of eggman online though.
That's not Sony's fault, that's how all HDTVs work.
No 120Hz / 240Hz TV actually accepts higher than a 60Hz refresh rate. The display refreshes at a higher rate and extra frames are generated from the 24/60Hz signal using motion interpolation.
tfw no 4 swords wii u port now with online mii features n shit
>someone else played pacman vs
My fucking nigga, that shit made the frequent long ass trips our family made bearable. Got the little headphone adapter to so I could listen to those high quality GBA soundtracks. I recently bought another SP (my original was stolen by our fucking cleaners kid) best investment I've made.
There's an even more impressive video floating around out there where a bunch of guys had all this equipment, and then set up a stream with it. So imagine all those wires, coupled with all the wires and extra devices needed to stream it.
No, all 5 screens were displayed on the one stream. Looked something like pic related
