    I was just thinking of making a thread of this myself!

    Can't you get cd audio from the Wipeout titles?

    HA!
    It figures that the Amazing Virtual Sea Monkeys would work. Maybe I'll get my $10 out of it yet (although the soundtrack isn't THAT great..)

    Now let me ask you, are you referring to the "bonus disc" soundtrack CD or the actual game? I can't say I've ever tried listening to the MGS game CD - can you please clarify?

    Just a question, while we're on this topic.. Do PS2 games work as well? Or are they a completely different format?

    The CD-ROM based ones shoujld work as well, but that's for another thread - Actually check out the link that PC Kwaj listed above, which includes some TurboDuo, Saturn and Sega CD titles as well!

    I think it works like this,

    There are 2 different ways to stream audio on the PS1. 1 format is .xa. The PS1 tool converts wav files into the .xa format and you can't play those in a cd player. The other way is normal wav files which is not compressed and they will play normally in a cd player. .xa files are interleaved, compressed wav files.

    Oh yea, Tyco RC will play in a cd player if anyone cares.

    N20! N20!!!

    P.S. We need a corresponding Sega Saturn thread. Midway had hidden some really bizarre music in their Midway Arcade's Greatest Hits titles. I'm not sure if those tracks were available on the Playstation versions of those games or not.

    N20 Was the first game I put on the list!

    And I invite you to start up a similar Saturn thread - should be one for Sega CD and TurboDuo too, really!

    I'll have to dig the Saturn out of the closet first.
    Someone needs to check the Midway Arcade's Greatest Hits discs on the Playstation to see if they've got the same music as the Saturn games. It was really funky stuff... like experimental techno music or something.

    JR

    P.S. I want to say that Street Fighter EX + Alpha had redbook audio, but I'm not sure. Guess I'll have to start messing around with my Saturn to find out. The beauty of the system is that it doubles as a CD player, and it does this better than any other game system out there. The interface is more attractive and has more features than the Playstation or 3DO, and it reads audio tracks better as well... it plays even scratched albums beautifully.

    AFAIK, all the Sega CD games should have some redbook audio on them. At least all mine do.
