What is your favorite way to play TMB in 2020?

I'm talking about the original game, BTW. Not TMBO. After watching this video:



...and along with my own experiences, I think I have it narrowed down as to which versions have the best image quality (along with being reliable):

-PS2 fat/original slim with LevelHike HDMI
-PS4 Pro
-PSCX2

Not listing the fat PS3 due to it's YLOD issues (both my 60 and 80gb systems died. Now I just have a working, top-loader slim).


The LevelHike HDMI has breathed new life into my fat PS2 and looks fantastic; but I have yet to experience the other 2 options. PS4 Pro looks appealing thanks to the added trophy support. PSCX2 looks appealing thanks to it's customization and how you can push the boundaries of it's visual quality. And then of course playing on PS2 original hardware with HDMI is appealing given that it is not emulation.

So what is your favorite way to play? Or is there a better way I haven't listed?


Ps: I was inspired to make this post because I'm thinking about buying a PS4 Pro for a Black Friday deal this year to play TMB and War of the Monsters w/ trophy support (and hopefully even better looking than my fat PS2 with HDMI).

You don't need a PS4 pro.  The PS4 version is identical.

Still,  sure,  if you want the pro,  get it.

I rarely mess with the offline version,  but when I do,  yeah the PS4 version is the best experience.

I don't have PS4 or PS4 Pro. I figured if I get one, I should go for the Pro. Then again, perhaps PS5 will have TMB and maybe it will play better...

I still need to check out TMBO. Sounds like I might be missing out on the best TMB experience...

Even though I have it on PS2, PS3, AND PS4, I mainly play it on PS4 nowadays.  The PS3 port constantly upscales itself, slowing down the gameplay painfully.

Ok, just recently ordered the original, launch PS4 with P.T. Silent Hills pre-installed off Ebay and it's on it's way... 😁

It's good to know that PS4 and Pro are identical for TMB (and I will assume the same holds true for other PS2 classics) because, honestly, it'd probably be best not to hear a jet flying around in the living room while gaming.

Looking on the PS store and there is a PS4 bundle with TMB, War of the Monsters and Kinetica for $19.99. It will also be playable on PS5. Definitely getting it.

Currently playing with my OG set-up. Phat PS3 with a game capture card.


Thought about playing it via emulator so I could reclaim some of my deskspace back.

Welp, scratch that, I'm currently putting my Sony purchases on hold for who knows how long. For more info on that, check out my latest post on BOTW and you'll see why:

I'm not a Trump fan and not a Biden fan either. I don't even vote. Not triggered either, just annoyed. However, I understand why the Elite are pushing BLM onto society. It all has to do with creating a weaker society that's easier to control.

As far as what I was saying on BOTW, I was just making a point using Trump as an example.

I get your example, but the problem is you think the elite are pushing this and not the response of the people.

Ur fucking whackadoo lmfao

Thanks Magnum, I agree: Politics and gaming should be separate.

*cough* Sony *cough*


That is why I posted the link...

Yea they should be separate but.......COUGH COUGH arguing still goes to Brawl.

I was gonna splice the post to Brawl because of that. Politics are not anything that belongs on the TMB Board. I get it but it's not relevant.

The site is so dead, I'm not really sure why I should care.
