iso or jb rip? I'd strongly suggest you compare the game with its ird in case something is corrupted. iirc, it works with either iso or jb format. this maybe the most thorough list: http://jonnysp.bplaced.net/ I think managunz can also compare irds with its database, but I have no experience with that backup launcher.
I've seen a few sites mainly stockholder circlejerk blah blah sites talking about it....but ND Twitter has said nothing and Atari has been as well...I'm wondering if this is a fake story to get Atari stock up
