Picked up doom for ps4 for 2.50 from cex. Was a weird one though as I picked up a 4 quid one. The lad said they had a damaged box one 2 quid and I could get fifa 17 in an immaculate case for 50p. So I did that. Strange they didnt just do that and sell it and 4 quid.

Lastly Dragon Quest Ultimate Edition for £21 and Taiko no Tatsujin: Taiko Drum Master box set complete with drums for £30. Both in Argos
Just had a look, seems that is no longer the price
Argus does that a lot. I bought Nintendo 3ds Animal Crossing Happy Homes for £1.99, a day later it goes up to £18.99. I assumed they where getting rid of the Drum Master stock but obviously not as it’s gone back to full price

A few PS3 pick ups from eBay.

Batman the Telltale Series (£4.95 brand new)
Resident Evil Revelations 2 (£9.50)

Since these are episonic games, some requiring downloads for the rest of the episodes, I figured I'd pick some up before the store servers shut and quite possibly render these discs useless.

And brought me a 1TB drive for my PS3 for my downloads.

Super Mario RPG and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for the Wii U Virtual Console. Never played either before. Would have preferred FE:SD physical but I wasn't going to pay the price it goes for now, looks like it will play just fine on the gamepad.

So in the middle of adding my new drive to my PS3, the console didn't like my 3rd party controllers anymore so I was stuck on the "Hook a controller up via USB and oress the Home button to continue" screen.

So coughed up £30 for a matching red official Dual shock and now the many redownload has begun.....not that it mattered in the end since Sony have now changed their minds but oh well.... :lol:

The GBA version of Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Wii U Virtual Console.

The game looks decent as is but the screen smoothing and original resolution make it look great, and the extra E-Reader levels are playable.

Gotta say, Catherine and Ultimate MvC3 for those prices are really good pick-ups!

GAME had both the Nintendo Labo VR Expansion Kits for a fiver each. All I need now is the actual VR set (And some free time to put all these kits together) and that's all the Labo collected.

Spotted another cheap PS3 game in CeX because why not at this point? :lol: Final Fantasy X/X2 HD for a fiver too.
