First off, glad I found this site! Pretty neat.

So, I've been contemplating getting a Dreamcast for a while now. I had one at launch, with basically every game, and like a the young fool I was, got rid of it, along with all kinds of gaming things that are worth a lot of money now day

Anyways, to my question.

I was looking to buy and mod one but decided instead of dealing with the headache, just getting an older one to play burned games on. I ran across one locally on Craigslist and it's a HKT-3010 NTSC J model. I know that's a Japanese model, and I don't know much about them.

For one, can it play burned games? It doesn't have a numbered (0 or 1) rating so I don't know how to tell. Secondly, can it play burned games from US region or will I have to use a boot disc or other mod?

Thanks for any advice, I appreciate it.
