I think this is just going to push people back to using torrents and tracker sites. Instead of just going to a website and DLing one or two ROMs as they play. More people will start torrenting a system's entire catalog in one go. The availability that these websites provided actually reduced distribution. Wile also introducing new consumer markets to the aging, unattended, potential of Nintendo's forgotten library. ISO zone had a lot of obscure Stuff that is probably irreplaceable. Games that Nintendo has no domain over. A lot of incredibly hard to find MAME roms, Gone. Why do Japan arcade Roms have to get sweep up in this? Unless someone is trying to manufacturer Brand new arcade PCBs of these old games, there is no CRP. Arcade games where never a end-user consumer product. The majority of CAVE's fan base comes from people discovering their games from Roms. CAVE only made 150 PCBs of some of their games. Sold to Japan Arcade businesses only. They where never registered products in the US. The ISO zone was the best place to find 1:1 perfect Dreamcast ISOs. The majority of DC ISOs you find online are edited to contain lower quality audio samples and down res-ed textures. 18 years ago people would reduce the size of a DC game GDrom image so it would fit on a blank CD. Unfortunately this littered the internet with unidentified bad copies. ISO zone made a point to organize the 1:1 DC games. Who is Activity trying to re-release all those Dreamcast games? Honestly....Nobody...Not even SEGA. What about Homebrews? Sorry, Gone. Hold hope for someone to re-upload some 20 year old abandonware. 0
