    Sometimes controllers that were sold in the millions are just controllers.

    Oh how I hate VGA! They'll put everything into an ugly plastic box to rot forever.

    It's short for Video Game Authority:

    You can send them your (sealed) game and they'll put it into a massive plastic box with a number on it that tells you how perfect it really is. Some people also have the impression that their cock has suddenly grown five extra inches after they did this.

    VGA is such a con!

    $5 game sent to VGA, comes back with a 90 grade and is magically now worth $200. People are insane.

    A user on here sent me this. Both of us and another person feel that guy just burned the proto I bought from DreamTR and released onto a CD-R with a cheap label... People will stop at nothing for a quick buck I guess.

    scedevnet is a board member. If this is true it is a serious breach of trust

    I think he's guilty, cds all have black ring under the center of the labels and the labels deff look homemade:

    Yeah I thought the name sounded familiar. I don't want to accuse anyone really of that because it is a very serious accusation, but just something seemed off about the labels on the cds. The PSP one really seemed odd and I thought the Rockman one was odd because it says "prototype version" I could be wrong, but I've never seen something like that. Typically you see demo, preview, review, not final code, or an identifier for a specific trade show, etc. I guess I'd rather have the communities opinion before attacking a man's honor and dignity.
