Glenn, you should forward this information to James Hague, who keeps the list updated!

Also, it would be great to have a SQL-database version of the Giant List. Sadly the list seems to be done by hand, that is it doesn't follow a very regular format. This means that it could not be a trivial task to write a program that reads the list and feeds a database. But once the work is done, then the Giant List would become just the output of a query on the database, and the whole thing would be much simpler to mantain.
Also, at this point it would be easy for anyone who writes web-apps, to activate an on-line searchable database.. the ICVD (Internet Classic Videogames Database).. :-)

Well, there's a nice IPD (Interenet Pinball Database), isn't it strange that a Classic Videogames database is still missing?
