|Happy New Year! The new Xbox 360 Vault continues to grow and is now 70% complete. Thanks to contributors the Dreamcast Vault is now 100% complete, the PlayStation Vault is nearly 100%, and the PlayStation 2 Vault is growing steadily. International content has grown tremendously so The Vault now lists games from your country/region by default, rather than defaulting to US games.
Recently No-Intro has decided to remove pirate, aftermarket, and homebrew titles from their standard .dat files, so they will be removed from The Vault automatically in the coming days. This should make maintenance easier since these titles generally cause the most changes.
|Thanks to the contributions of many visitors the Wii Vault is now 100% complete and contains every known Wii disc in the world. The PlayStation 2 Vault also continues to fill and some disk upgrades this week ensure there's plenty of room to grow. A recent database upgrade should also keep things running smoothly.
Today Vimm's Lair is proud to announce the opening of the Xbox 360 Vault! To kick things off the "#" section is complete as well as half the letter "A". Screen shots are included on games supported by Xenia though it's compatibility is still a bit low. More games will be added alphabetically and all are welcome to contribute.
|The PlayStation 2 Vault and Wii Vault are now crowdsourced and uploads are flowing in steadily. Next up is the Nintendo Vault. No-Intro recently introduced a headered NES catalog so the plan is to switch the Nintendo Vault from GoodNES headers to No-Intro headers.
An online emulator has been added to several Vaults to play games right in your browser. Supported systems include Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance. Each system has the same easy to use interface, courtesy of emulatorjs.
The Vault's review backlog continues to dwindle, with only 150 Nintendo and Super Nintendo reviews left dating back to 2008. Some of the email addresses are still valid providing folks a blast from the past when their decade old review is processed. New reviews continue to be processed quickly, so keep them coming!
