Re: CEX

My cousin used to work in the Romford branch, which was superb as he'd always pick out the best stuff and clean my disks up when i took them in! :D However, he's left now and they've stopped taking in Gamecube and backwards, so i don't venture in any more.

I have about 10 machines at the...
