We've spotted a few people requesting rom/downloads's for retail systems, we'd just like to remind without telling anybody off that we do not support/allow retail data to be posted. If you own retail stuff and wish to sell your original copy this is fine clearly, but not copies.
We have to respect companies and their rights, more so with our goals to become a registered preservation group.
I'm not mentioning any names as stated, just a kind a kind reminder for those who don't understand...

A week ago we launched a fundraiser for an unreleased PlayStation console, Today we're proud to announce we have saved one of two unreleased Xperia Play 2 phones, also codenamed the "PSP Phone" until PlayStation didn't give it's full blessings so it became the Xperia Play (also known as the Zeus in development).
Things didn't go all the plan, the reshipper in Hong Kong told us DHL wouldn't insure it if below 5KG which seemed stupid, so we paid another £55 postage on top of the £170 we...
Recently we banned a user for trolling and being racist/breaking site rules, sadly they got butthurt and decided to pay Russian human spammers to target the site. We had to disable registration as I was too busy to fully fix the issue until now. The user was using a ton of Russian ISP's meaning banning the IP ranges wasn't helping and we were banning around 6 ranges a day from multiple Russian ISP's.
The most annoying part to this was them sending porn spam via PM, meaning we couldn't...
As much as I've always been against ads, and with donations lowish compared to the past, we've decided to add adverts to OG.
This is part of our plan to keep OG alive for the future, while nobody likes them we've made it so donators don't see them as a perk of this and for their support.
More changes are coming, and we'll post soon about these.
OG will be at OLL '22!
OG will be showcasing developer hardware, prototype hardware, restoration and showing importance of video game preservation live.
If you're in the UK and wish to come, we have even better news!
We'll be giving away two tickets to the event worth £27.50 each!
All you have to do is follow OG on Twitter, follow OLL on Twitter, and Tweet OG saying why you would love a chance to come. We'll then give each person a number in order of them posting, and use a random...
It's that time again. We've been offered a joblot of 40+ XBOX 360 preview/review discs to preserve/archive.
The discs will be shipped to us and dumped for future release & Donators will get early access sneak peak videos (more details will be posted on discord)
As always, the discs will remain part of the museum and an upcoming gallery is coming soon for that.
Thank you for your loyal support.
Donations can be done via our donation for or via Ko-Fi and the links are below...
Ok, so as some of you may know a few minutes ago the OG discord server disappeared
Shortly after we found out that the server had been reported for "selling or distributing cheats, hacks or cracked accounts" , This is of course totally false
Bear with us whilst we figure something out
EDIT Note by Damien:
I won't be joining the new server at this time. If you see anybody named Damien/WD in server please report to the Discord staff team asap.
We've filed appeals with Discord, If you...
