Just purchased a used Master System II on Amazon for 48 pounds. The system seems to be in good condition but the original box is missing. Still, I feel it is a great price for a criminally underlooked machine. Also, I think the games’ boxarts are awesome.
“The biggest challenge we encountered was project management,” Suzuki said. “By the end, we had 300 people [working] and no experience on such a large project. At the time there were no project management tools…so instead we made a job order sheet that was a list of action items in Excel. Because we kept testing, the items did not decrease. At one point we had 10,000 of them.
A good read.
Wondering what retro game console I should purchase next. I’m leaning towards a Sega Master System at this point; lots of great games and underlooked gems. Plus, the boxarts are great.
Edge Online has posted an entire reprint of the SEGA/Sony PS3 confidential notes found on SEGAs FTP server.
A Microsoft Word document found on SEGA Americas FTP site, if genuine, reveals a few details about Sony’s upcoming plans for the PlayStation 3. One of these plans seems to be offering most, if not all PS2 titles for purchase on the PlayStation Network – no wonder backwards compatibility isn’t available on the PS3 Slim.
