Today I got a brand new sealed copy of Destiny for the 360 for pop and a red DS Lite with charger and what looked like a game inserted but turned out to be an R4 with a 4gb micro sd! £5.

That's a result for the R4 card alone - especially since it's been illegal to buy or sell them for quite a few years now.

I have tried it out and it has played everything I have chucked on it apart from Konami Arcade Classics. It has a GBA folder on it but it won't let me load the ROMS. I assume I need a R4/everdrive for the GBA slot.

Amazes how often people seem to report finding sealed copies of fairly recent games in charity shops! I wonder how they end up there in the first place? Must be relatives and such clearing out somebody else's stuff.

I found that myself for £1.50. Then again I used to be MadManDan79 before my dopey ex partner used my old email address maliciously and had to change it...

Not had a good find in ages, one shop that is close to me has started pricing all the PS1 / PS2 games at £4 a pop (and yes that includes FIFA) :?

I've been looking for one for ages.

And the Everdrive GB is a great buy as well:
