I've seen a megadrive game for £9.99 called "Classic Collection" or something similar, and has the following on it:

Gunstar Heroes
Altered Beast
Flicky
Alex Kidd

not sure if it is worth that though?

Also a MD game WonderBoy: Dragon's Trap - £9.99

My PS3, PS2 and PSP are boxed up ready to be sold, cause I wasn't playing them at all.

Main consoles just now are DC, N64 and Megadrive, and I am looking to pick up a Saturn next.

the PSP is unboxed, but it's in one of those wee zip up carry case things to stop it getting scratched. If you want it for £50 +postage then it's yours mate. I've got Pro Evo 6, Test Drive and "The Office series 1" with it. I'm not sure what version it is so not sure how easy it would be to downgra...

Selling a PS2 and PSP - what do they go for?

I have got an unboxed PS2 (the big shape one) with a controller and memory card, and also a PSP with charger and 2 games.

I am looking to get shot of them to help fund me getting a chipped JAP Saturn.

what should I be looking for - about £30 for the PS2 and about £50 for the PSP?

a 6-button MD pad in Gamestation for £1.99

I've got 2 already but the D-Pad on them both is really shakey and loose, this one is perfect.

Know what I REALLY REALLY LIKE about RG?

The little touches, things like how across the top of the front cover it has the wee line saying AMSTRAD COMMODORE SEGA NINTENDO, etc.

It doesn't just seem like a mag ABOUT games from those days, it actually feels like a mag from those days.

I never owned an Atari ST, or an Amiga for that matter. I do remember though the the school next to ours had a youth club and they had an Atari ST with the PREDATOR game, and I thought it looked amazing at the time. Our school eventually opened a youth club and someone supplied a dodgy old Amiga tha...

I know, I know.....I fully understand that it's the ads that create the revenue to keep the mag going, I'm just in a bad mood cause I've got the cold and my head feels like it's inside a dirty fish tank.

The mag is awesome, ignore me :D

I think for the majority of people (except you REALLY old codgers....:D)..Retro Games will be the games they remember playing in their youth.

For me at the age of 27 that started with the Atari 2600, then onto the spectrum, then onto Nes, MD, Snes, etc.

That looks absolutely awful.

If you are gonna give the characters facial expressions at least don't make them look constipated.

Got the mag last night, looks great again as usual.

Only one thing that annoys me - and I know it's not the staff's fault as it's not them who decide on the adverts....but you open your shiny new issue of RETRO Gamer and the first thing you see is an advert for......CALL OF DUTY 4.
