I've been going back and grabbing some XBox 360 games while they're still fairly cheap - GTA IV for £1 was the latest. Quite happy with that.

Doesn't seem like I ever posted an up to date picture of my GameCube collection, so here it is.

Happy page 200.

Fun fact, super monkey ball launched with the American style of "only for" label in the corner, probably never to be repeated again, upsetting everyone.

I noticed this originally and still do; I wonder why they are even different, and if there is a reason why somebody apparently forgot to update/fix just that part for the PAL artwork.

The nichest of niche mysteries.

Ha well spotted, I never picked up on that

Looking over Drumstick's fine collection, I'm surprised REmake, RE0 and MGS: The Twin Snakes don't have the 'only for' label. Seems to be inconsistent with third party. Honestly they could've gotten away with it for Sonic Adventure 2 and especially Ikaruga by that point :p

Honestly I think they were well aware they would probably see some other format eventually.

Twin snakes really isn't the same game but that kind of makes sense.

It seems maybe they had to pay extra for that..

Also I thought this was common knowledge but anyway, viewtiful Joe had both pink and yellow sleeves. Mine is pink too.

Aside from the Mario Party and Resi games, that's very similar to my GC collection.

That's a lovely set, Drum. I love my original Xbox but, dang, the Cube had some cool games!

I recall being blown away by the light-rays when starting that game, kerr. Amazing!

Finally here is some of my very specific physical racing game collection - most obvious gaps are filled by having the games digitally or emulated:

Polyphony/Gran Turismo:

Evolution Studios (RIP in Peace :cry: )

I noticed you have import tuner for 360 I have happy memories of that both playing it and making money from it..... It used to be worth a lot in trade/cash compared to how much I'd see it for. I'd see it on a carboot for £1 to £5 and then end up getting like £12 cash or £20 trade for it so would always keep an eye out for it..l purchased and then sold it a crazy amount of times

As previously mentioned, I'm clearing out my sizeable and sadly unplayed gaming collection and am considering setting up an Ebay shop as I've noticed that most of the higher value games seem to sell for more when listed as "Buy it now" by more professional sellers who have their own ''shop' on Ebay.

Obviously this costs more to do but seeing as I've got over 200 games to sell, with several which I've seen sell for over £100, I'm thinking it might be worth it - has anyone had any experience with selling a large number of items on Ebay in this way? I'm a massive noob to this so I could really do with some advice.

it definitely looks like bargain-bin trash from the cover, a lot like the Crash Time games, but I always keep an eye out in charity shops/bootsales. I got factory sealed ps2 copies of space channel 5 and the not originally released in the uk sequel for £3.50 each in a guildford charity shop :slol:

This was years ago and probably one in a million as no one would seperate them. Happened to be that shop, that town, that misunderstanding it wasn't seperable, or saleable by itself, as it has no functionality.

Yeah charity shops are always shite for games. That's the only thing with massive profit. I held onto it for ages.
