- 12th April 2005: Dumping Project - A Texas company has a working cabinet for Rare's "X The Ball" soccer-themed redemption game; this is the only copy I've ever seen. It's the last known undumped game by Rare, and is supposedly on "Battletoads" hardware; it shouldn't be too hard to emulate. They are willing to part out the boardset and let us rent and dump it for $400, with $200 to be refunded if we return it in working order. I grant you that this is an awful lot to spend for something we won't own, but the only alternative is to either buy the boardset outright and break up a working cab (which I think is a terrible thing to do with a game this rare) or to buy and ship the whole cab.
