Unreleased console from the big THREE

We're urgently fundraising for an unreleased games console from the big three game companies.

There is less than 5 of these known to exist, and we have the chance to secure one and document it on our new channel.

All data/software found on the system will be shared with researchers, but donators will get first access. High res 4k video will be done on the device and it's internals for future reference.

This fundraiser is time sensitive.

Saturn OG Saturn Group Buy (Release)

Presents.......
Another release!


Earlier this year we held a group buy for 78 discs. 75 ended up being SEGA Saturn, 3 were PS1 & lastly we had a lone XBOX disc.

We had over 40 donators, in what was our largest funding effort to date. We seriously couldn't have done it without all your help!

Due to size of the list of donators, we'll leave a link to our wiki. If you want your name on the list changed please let us know, or if we missed anybody.

Sadly, some of these discs were beaten badly in their former life which wasn't at fault of this seller. Some had holes, some had bitrot. Thankfully it wasn't any major discs. Only a Golf game which still sucks but better than the likes of VF2.

All have been dumped with a Plextor PX-W4012TA which was kindly donated too by Merlin, If a bad disc/C2 errors it's been dumped with CloneCD via tha same drive.

The most exciting build appears to be the Virtua Fighter 2 30% Build which has model changes.

(Thanks to @Tongara for spotting changes)

We won't post the full list here, We'll let everyone dive in heads first to find changes. Anything in the Pletor (New Builds) folder will be worth checking.

A Special Thanks goes to the following people/groups,
@RacingFreak for helping manage the scans by clearing them up.
@ehw / HiddenPalace.org for double checking data.
@Merlin for donating a better Plextor than the one we had.
All donators.

Didn't realise that this would be released so soon! Any chance you could add me to the Donators list? Dropped a little in the kitty last night :)

Thanks!
