Classic Video Games / Re: PlayStation Vita turns 10 years old.

1 of my favorite systems of all time  and feeling wise it might be the most important system in my life.

trough the vita I met my best friend  and back then only one.
its also the only system I will ever own a complete set for  every physicla english release I own. asside from the 3 nicalis games but they are so expensive I couldnt even afford them if I saved my whole budget for a year

vita is also special because the fans kept it alive for so long.

vita means life

so the vita will never die  at least not in my lifetime.

for me it cant be saved my newest sony console is the ps3 I have zero interest in getting an ps4 or 5  in the future
In x-box I have even less interest I only get x-box 360 and or newer in my house if its to resell.

nintendo on switch is a bit behind with dlc patches etc altough they are egtting there they are around the ps3  lvel in that regard and I would be an hypocrite if thats the reaon I wouldnt get the switch. I hate the switch though hardware wise.

I dont want incomplete games that need patches to be playable
I dont wnat dlc give me the whole game from the get go or NOT bring it out till its done.

so it doesnt mather what nintendo does after switch I wont be a part of it.  also I just enjoy gaming less quality of games have dropped a lot. not talking about graphics etc but just the immersion originality etc.  1 of the major reasons for me to get nintendo hardware is pretty much ruined as well  which is pokemon  I will get them at some point when they are cheap wil just play trough them once and be done with it while with every other generation i put hundrreds of hours into every game in some gens even 1000s

If they break... why not get them fixed? There are quite a few options out there to fix various systems.

After about 10 years my Game Gear had no audio due to the cheap capacitors Sega used. I got a new motherboard and all capacitors replaced on the audio board as well as changed the backlighting from tube to LED. I've even replaced the d-pad rubber membrane between the button and motherboard.

Don't toss your old systems... fix them.

I have no idea how to fix them, and there's no shop or store anywhere near me that will fix them.


There wasn't one near me either. There are people on Etsy or eBay that will fix your systems. Then there are brick and motor locations and sites like www.estarland.com that will fix your systems. You ship it too them, they do the work, and you get it back. It takes a bit of trust on your part, but there are legitimate businesses.
buying a new one is cheaper then egtting it repaired  for the most part

um depends on where you get the thing repaired and the console in question, them retro consoles are getting pretty rare and expensive now a days in America at least, I vote for repair vs, getting a new one because I know a PC repair shop near me that charges about $60 USD plus cost of parts to get any console repaired, to me that is way worth it

when getting another console used, you may encounter the same exact problem or worse, people could sell you another lemon it may work then break soon after with little usage hence the reason why the last guy might have sold it in the first place, in rare cases you may get bugs from another used console, if you do get another console make sure it's sold as refurbished and clean,

sometimes all a console needs is a good cleaning to work again I'd say get it cleaned if you don't know how to my local repair shop also does that for $60 USD a console.

when I bought my OG Xbox used I took it in for an inspection shortly after I purchased it. And the tech found it had a leaky capacitor. It just started leaking recently after it was sold at the place I bought it from, but good thing was the tech caught it in time

 I ask the people I bought it from about and they told me they never knew about the leaky capacitor. or the fact that it's common in OG Xbox consoles a this point in time, the clerk said no quickly and without a 2nd thought :-\

if you buy an OG Xbox make sure you get it looked at by an expert like I did, AND? i've had it for 4 years now or 5 don't rememebr and IT STILL WORKS ;D
when getting it repaired you might get the same issue back again as well  shipping alone is like 20 euro already (both to the repairman and back so 10 bucks to ship it there and 10 to get it back)

just having it looked at withour doing anything is about 30 40 bucks already  lets say they take an hour to work on it thats about 80 euro total already and then you probatly have to pay for parts etc as well.

and alkso the risk of getting scammed

yeah not worth it

and that is if you cna even find someone in the first place.

and that is for the common ones

ok I reached out to gamerave and he had some good ideas.

first off the ebay poster  turns out to be part of a set there are actualy 10 different ones. no idea if they have to do with my thing but it has to do with the campaign so there is an decent chance its related.

another idea he had was that I download the iso from  that black disc  some people and me find and look trough that  maybe I learn something from that. I dont have high hopes since that one is from australia but you never know

I am gonna do that later today when i have some more time if I learn something new I will be sure to update

gamrave isnt an option I feel you send me a link but his site has no contact options so I have no wya to reach out to him.

All of Game-Rave's contact information ranging from direct e-mail to social media channels is located at the top-right of his website.
huh weird maybe its my browser then because for me there is nothing asside from the artricles the only thing I can see is a search tool thats it

Honestly, I don't think a personality like Metal Jesus would be that knowledgeable regarding an item like this. However, that did make me consider two others on our site for you to ask, although they aren't that active on the forums. VGC user psxlegacy has an impressive PlayStation collection and even made a thread before hoping to find other avid PlayStation collectors. At the same time, cirdan77 is a big PlayStation 3 collector, in particular. You may have luck with these two, but, from just looking at their collections and having responded to their edit submissions in the past, their focuses regard retail releases.

Also, as mentioned in the thread posted before, there is another resource I can suggest, that being Jason at Game-Rave. Although he seems more knowledgeable regarding the original PlayStation library, he may still have some information to give or, at the very least, be able to better point you to someone else for answers.

what metal jesus is concerned he has verry little knowledge himself about almost everything he does have however a big network and that was what I was hoping for.

those users  here might be an option I am gonna reach out to them I dont have much hope  but its the best  chance I have  and even a smal chance is still a chance.

gamrave isnt an option I feel you send me a link but his site has no contact options so I have no wya to reach out to him.

I might look into that a bit deeper though because there are probatly other ways for that  I have to look into that

edit: reached out to both users now lets hope:)

I don't have any additional concrete information, but it certainly looks to be a press kit for Europe's This Is Living campaign. This video seems to be a part of a 2008 press kit, so, if you've still yet to see what's on the disc, I imagine similar kind of content—promotional videos, game trailers, latest PlayStation 3 system highlights, PlayStation Network information—to be found on the disc you own.

it probatly is or was aprt of a press kit but I cant find anything about it

and I know whats on the disc and thats exactly what you discribe

this is from 2007 though

I want to know if its complete or not and more stuff like that
