About £140 for the both of them at the current market rate.

strawberry floating hell :shock:

I've got Chrono Trigger DS boxed and apparently that goes for decent money too.

My boxed, near mint copy of Paper Mario goes for about £130ish last time I checked. That get's kept safely away from everything else. :lol:

My sealed copy is currently listed on Ebay for £165 'buy it now', hasn't sold yet so I might have to lower it a bit.

In anticipation of the XBOX I ordered turning up I just picked up a copy of Project Gotham Racing for 50p at CeX. I loved MSR on Dreamcast and PGR3 on 360 but I’ve never played this one.

As (I believe) a launch title for the system it’ll be interesting to see how it holds up.

I got my Xbox and around 30 games for about £50 back in March (I think). Got a few gems and even a few doubles (Shadow The Hedgehog :dread: ). I really need to sit down and figure out the games I want for it as I've bought another 20 or so games since then. They are mostly really cheap as well which is great. Outrun 2 was my most recent awesome pick up. Sadly not the SP Coast 2 Coast version, which is stupid expensive, but it's still damn good.

The KOTOR games, JSRF and Steel Battalion (At some point) are on my list to get. I just need to get around to it.

I'd love to try Steel Battalion at some point but I just don't have the cash or the space for it. I have a few things in mind that I want to pick up. I'm off to York next Friday so I'll be checking out CeX and Sore Thumb while I'm there.

EDIT: My XBOX turned up yesterday, I played a little bit of Voodoo Vince. Seems a fun platformer thus far but suffers from a bad case of what I like to call “Can’t find the last couple of collectables-itis”.

I just grabbed Red steel 2 complete for £1.50

And I got a white and pink original DS without charger for £10 from another one, my original has a broken hinge so I guess this is its replacement.

I did look at a Wii but it was £25 in a charity shop was filthy had a minging looking dirty balance board with Wii fit, a probably not working its so scratched Mario kart and a wiimote that looked like it had been up some bodies ass. Amongst all that though with it included in the price was a pristine looking copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns, I offererd them £5 for it but they basically said ''nope we won't sell that separate, we are hoping someone will buy the whole lot just to get that''. , if someone does buy it best of luck to them scrubbing it all up.

Just checked Paper Mario TTYD is peaking at £75 now. I'd never part with it though as it's such a wonderful game and my only paper mario. Also my last store-bought GameCube game, I think Only if perhaps they issued and HD version.. but then what would I spend it on. Better off using Dolphin.

GameCube until my grave... Although something tragic is bound to happen to it. I doubt future family are going to give a gooseberry fool.

My thousand year doors a USA version , I spent either £40 or £50 at a closing game shop called playtime to get a bundle which was thousand year door and like 4 other American GameCube games and a freeloader , I can't remember what games probably nothing worth more than £5 though (I know somewhere I'll have the exact price and games written down as I've logged all my retro purchases for 3 or 4 years), at the time I just couldn't find a copy of thousand year door from any region for less than £70 so the above seemed really good.

I've got a copy of JSFR going spare if you want it? I'm getting rid of my 360 and it's not on Xbone BC, so it's basically a lime green ornament to me.

It has the manual and all that jazz, but the disc might have seen better days.

:shock:

Suddenly the £45 I paid a few years back seems fine.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I might take you up on that at some point. Moving house soon so not buying anything until that's done.

But I might take you up on it after that.

I'll put it to one side then. :D

I dug it out just now, and the disc and manual are in surprisingly good nick. Not bad for an old eBay buy!

Have you ever wondered what it'd be like if the N64 was made out of metal and fired out flames whilst you played a game? Wonder no more :lol: .

I went to visit my parents at the weekend and spent some time while I was there clearing out old bits and pieces from the loft and my old bedroom. Found an absolute stack of old N64/NGC magazines, Official Nintendo magazines, Official Playstation magazines, and odd issues of Edge, gamesTM, play, PSM, etc. I'm loathe to just chuck them out but they take up a lot of space, weigh a tonne to transport/post, and I don't really have room to just hang onto them. What have other people done with their old magazines?

Grabbed a few cheap games today nothing that old but good for the price

Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix for Wii 50p, Prince of Persia rival swords for Wii 50p, Call of Duty 3 for wii for50p. Little big planet for ps3 for 50p , far cry 2 for ps3 for 50p, resistance fall of man for ps3 for 50p, grand theft auto 4 for ps3 for 50p, and fight night round 3 for ps3 for 50p.

I also got a super slim ps3 with all its wires and 2 pads for £5 but haven't checked it yet, sold as seen so I'm presuming something's up.
