Re: Has trading died?

I would agree, 90% of the stuff i buy from car boot sales gets taken to CEX. I always get store credit and then buy something for my collection, it works out great, no hassle and I get the item I want cheap.

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

I still love the Spectrum, I have a nice collection of games, probably about 60, mostly the ones i had as a kid.
I have a few Spectrums in my collection, a ZX81, 48k (Rubber Key) and a 128k +2b.
I mainly use the 48k as this was the one i had when i was young so has the most nostalgic memories for me.

Re: do you buy physical music

Re: do you ever go to the cinema?

I have the Cineworld Unlimited Card, i have had it for about 16 years, I go all the time, I love going to the cinema.
IMAX is the nuts! Worth the extra ££
I have been about 4 times in the last 3 weeks and going again on Wednesday to see Spider-Man.

Re: Reasons to get a PS3

I have a few PS3's but only use it to test games, you can pick them up very cheap now, my last one was £40, boxed with 53 games.
It is a nice system, but the 360 in my opinion is much better.

Re: Any Nintendo DS Collectors Here?

I have a lot of DS consoles and a good selection of games, I always take one on holiday with me as it has an R4 card with all the games I own plus a big selection of Emulators on it. Keeps me busy on a long flight.
