I'm probably moving back to the UK in the spring and half-tempted to just have a massive clearout, as I'll be moving into a new place with my girlfriend and can hardly take loads of retro titles with me as they'll be a pain to store. My parents will keep them for me but if they are worth something (as a lot of the GC ones are), I'd be tempted to sell.

Best pieces of advice I could give you would be:

-Check what CEX sell them for
-Check sold listings on eBay, filtered on auction only (as BINs really skew the true sale values) and take an average

Firstly though, you should definitely try and strike deals with your longtime good friends on GRcade.

The best news though is that you'll be back on UK time for AYAW games. I look forward to the return of Parksey's SenseTalk™.

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

Paul is going to be in touch regarding that trademark infringement.

1 infraction point for endangering GRcade against future.

Retro Collect has links to eBay for all of the titles you’ll be looking to sell on it.

If you post a list in here we may be able to help out, or as Drum says, strike a deal. :shifty:

Made some good progress on my PS2 last night.

I'd ordered the HDD adapter, 1Tb SATA HDD and USB to SATA interface from amazon got them through yesterday, so I was able to spend some time tinkering with it.

Short result is that I can now boot PS2 games from the internal Hard Drive and save the CD/DVD Drive!

I'm going to continue tinkering with it tonight and see if I can get PS1 games to work as well.

PS2 has been fairly straight forward to be honest. Installing and setting up the HDD is probably the most complex part of it and all I need to do now is sort out another RAD2X for it and the PS1.

I'm probably going to give the controllers a good deep clean though (Especially as I can hear plastic rattling inside one).

Have you played the Playboy game? Its a pretty suprising game its basically like the sims with more of a point, you have to run the playboy mansion, build the rooms, take the photos, get the articles witten, run parties so you can attract stars to get interviews and make your mag sell the best it can. I thought it would be some pervy shite like those The Guy Game and such but its actually a pretty intresting game.

It rings a bell now that you mention it. I probably saw it on the old xxx episode of Consolevania where they looked at a load of "adult" themed games.

This is a Video I made on 3 games I would recommend you give a bash on the PS2 or Original Xbox if you want something a little diffrent, The games are Jurrasic Park Operation Genesis, Playboy the Mansion and Alien Versus Predator Extinction, if your adding games to your PS2 hardrive Devlin id recomend you give them a bash.

realised I havent added the few bits I have purchased recently on here its basically been Xena Warrior Princess for PS2 complete for £1 and Ghost Recon 2 complete for xbox for 50p

Operation Genesis on XBOX is considered quite collectable in the US I believe and it can command a fairly hefty price but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I think CeX sell it for about £15.

Yeah I think its not a common common game here but not loads of money either. It is one of the few PC games that you used to be able to sell to CEX for a decent whack as well. I currently have 2 ps2 copies of it and 4 PC copies, all my pc ones came from charity shops. At one stage I did have 8 pc copies but I traded a few into CEX for store credit, at one point you could get like £18 store credit for them which was good when you were paying 50p to £2 for them from charity shops and carboots, now its about £2 I think I held on to too many of them for to long, I did keep hoping my CEX would get a Xbox copy so I could trade a PC to an Xbox as thats the first machine I played it on.

Yep, I second Drumstick's advice, Parksey. Some folk look at what items are priced at rather than what they sell for; obvs you can price it for whatever you want but that doesn't mean it's gonna sell. I'd tend to, personally, also include "buy it now" sale prices rather than just auctions - as it has still sold at that price - but I can understand Drummy's perspective.

I'd always suggest selling games if one is just looking at them as a form of investment; you gotta be aiming to sell near to the "peak" time before prices start falling again (as they will often do so eventually). Of course, for folk collecting games purely for the love of them, keep hold of them and enjoy 'em!

I've been "watching" an eBay listing for 7 Famicom games (SMB1/2/3,TMNT, Double Dragon II, Punchout and Rockman 2) for a week or so now. It's a Buy It Now and it was £65, but today the seller has dropped it to £60.

It's a great price for 7 cracking games and I've been praying no-one else snaps it up while I wait to get paid (Tonight at midnight) but it's really stressing me out now. Just waiting for some twat to pinch it from under my nose. :dread:

Guys I just got a fantastic eBay deal on seven Famicom games. The first three Mario games, TMNT, Double Dragon II, Punchout and Rockman 2, great value at £60.

I noticed a few people were watching it, but if you’re not fast you’re last, am I right? :shifty:

Funnily enough I found out that the N64 stock I missed out on had not, in fact, been sold but was moved to a different store that was light on retro stuff for the window. Which is a bit irritating.

I was in there (The sauchiehall street branch) the other day and someone had clearly gotten rid of their Mega Drive collection as they had about 9 boxed games (Most in good nick) in the window. All four Sonic games, Golden Axe, Speedball 2, Xenon 2, Zool and something else.

They've still got that boxed copy of Doom 64 in the window as well, but the box is bashed to hell and it's about £60 I think (I may be wrong).

Yeah it’s stupidly priced - I got a copy of Doom 64 without the box for a tenner and eBay price seems to be anything between £30-50. I noted they’d kept a couple of the more common boxed ones in the window - think a smashed in copy of Wave Race was still there as of Monday.
