    compat_rating: Playable
    compat_comments: Initial boot screen renders correctly. Has 3 options to select:
    (1) NCAA Football 2005
    (2) Top Spin
    (3) EA Sports on Xbox Live
    Selecting option 3 renders an FMV that plays well and returns to main menu upon completion.
    Selecting option 1 or 2 will launch the respective game title.
    NCAA Football 2005: Starts
    The game has menu functionality and renders FMVs alright.
    However, in a match there is Z-fighting on the field.
    Frame rate drops to less than 10 FPS once a play begins, about 25-30 FPS in scenes.
    Top Spin: Playable
    All menus appear to run fine and as expected.
    An exhibition match can be completed successfully, and without any issues.
    Create-a-player mode however has many graphical glitches for the player's body and gear.
    Sometimes the created player can render in shadow or corrupted textures, both in the menu or in a match.
