Bloody annoying really when I have almost 50 year old open reels which are fine! :cry:

I had the port extender and the disc drive addon which included a board to allow you to use BBC Micro ROM chips, unfortunately I sold allot of the hardware but still have my original electron and a good load of games :)

It's not unusual, the fake bootleg verisions of tetris for the MegaDrive easilly fetch in the high hundreds of pounds.
