Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Brand spanking new Amiga 1200. Never used. Everything still sealed up inside. Nice bonus is that it arrived in the origional shipping box.

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... FOREWORD BY DAVID BRABEN!!

Everyone who has pre-ordered so far will get a free upgrade to hardback (if they want) as a way of saying "Thanks". (note: if you ordered more than one, only one of them will be upgraded). I'm not sure what the exact upgrade price will be for everyone else, but I expect it to be of the order of a t...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Very nice boxed Vectrex. Box has both polys and origional poly bag. Also has warranty and bag. Missing manual but I'm keeping my eyes peeled :-) Console is pretty much unmarked.

Outlaw for the 2600 sealed and a loose Outlaw cart to play :-)

Mmm. Thanks for that I was stsrting to suspect. I've seen a few really nice ones on ebay ( US ) but is the risk worth it ?

I think i'll put the cash towards an 800XL or even an old 800.

Cheers

Atari 5200 where, where, WHERE !!!

Well on Saturday I finally added an Atari 7800 to my growing collection. What a bargain it was ! £20 bought me a brand new never used console with everything complete including 11 sealed games. Now I'm after a 5200. Well to be honest I've been looking off and on for the past 6 months with no luck. ...

Time for some BBC coverage ?

Hi guys. Every month I eagerly await my retroGamer in the hope that I will see a BBC gracing the cover. It's then that I will know that their will be an excellent feature on this trusty old workhorse. The Beeb was my first computer and considering how popular it was RG seems to be ignoring it. I've ...
