Vimm's Lair is crowdsourcing The Vault!

To kick things off a new Xbox Vault is now open, only this time there's no games. Instead every Redump disc in the world is listed (with hashes) and anyone with the matching game can upload it straight to The Vault. Any country, any language, any edition! Nightly scans ensure changes are flagged immediately so with your help the Xbox Vault will be the most accurate catalog of Xbox discs anywhere, curated by the fans.

Now introducing, the WiiWare Vault! All 352 US releases are included with more screenshots snapped daily.

Over in the Wii Vault a torrent experiment is starting today. Trackerless torrents have been made for the top 10 Wii games from March which now have a new "Magnet" button. The plan is to seed these torrents all month, then if people are seeding (and using) them they'll stay and possibly expand, otherwise they'll go. Feedback is welcome.

The PlayStation Portable Vault is now complete with the last missing games added recently. A hundred or so games still need screen shots made and should be ready soon. Over in the Nintendo DS Vault many more serials and publishers have been added. Some games incorrectly had the serial from their demo version and have been fixed. In the PlayStation 2 Vault a couple hundred more screen shots have been made and there's roughly 200 games left to go. And finally, No-Intro has changed the hashes and regions of several Genesis games this year and The Genesis Vault has been updated accordingly.
