I can beat that with Destiny on Xbone for 99p. That went straight to CEX. Think the manager may have made a bit of an error as the assistant shook her head in disbelief.

I got my GC Wind Waker in a charity shop a couple of years back too... for the grand sum of 49p.

Someone had also left Star Fox Assault in the box.

COD Modern Warfare 3 (PS3)
COD Black Ops (PS3)
Turok Evolution (XBox)
Destroy All Humans (XBox)
Star Wars The Force Unleashed II (360)

Once more, £1.49 each. Seems the Call of Duty games are going the way of out of date sports games as Ive even seen CeX price the PS360 ones for £4 and under. They id have some PS1 Tomb Raider games but already had them, plus he were too dusty and not big profit wise to resell. Really should buy that PS3 soon, I'm ending up with a PS3 collection now. :lol:

Update on that Atari 520 I brought, decided to keep it in the end. Just figured at the end of the day, the max profit minus ebay fees and posting would probably not be worth it in the end, so into the collection it goes. :lol:
3DS FC= 0301-9774-9044

PM me if you add me.

Thats probably the best solution and what I personally would have done. Even if it did go wrong you'd be able to flog it on ebay to a restorer.

I just picked up big box versions of Settlers III and IV from a local charity shop.

Image

Both boxes are in pretty good condition, although the box for III does have a tear on the bottom of the front (probably from when the original owners first opened it)
I'll probably never touch them myself admittedly so I'll probably wind up passing them onto someone else online in a few weeks.

I bought a brand new sealed copy of Ticket to Ride Europe for £6.99 from Oxfam - such a bargain meant I paid with a tenner and gave them the change too.
