Found an elite plus manual on a book shelf in a charity shop.

Had to pick it up for a quid. Some really art work in it

I found a shrink wrapped japanese copy of Modern Warfare on 360 for £2. I would love to how and why someone had an unopened copy of that in Tooting.

That's a bizarre find! It's probably a really poorly-selling game in Japan so to find a sealed copy here in the UK - in a charity shop no less - is just crazy.

Tooting Octavia shop was where I picked up the last of a very big bundle of sealed ps2 games and got given some minty GBA games as a freebie. Not been back there since as there was some kind of police raid as I got there.

I'd say, considering how much of a flop every XBox performs in Japan.

That's why i'm keeping it as an investment. I reckon in ten years it could go up in value by as much as 50%.

Found sealed copies of Sorcery and The Shoot for PS3 for £2 each. Time to break out the move controllers (which strangely have gone up by 300% in CEX since PSVR came out)! Also found a copy of Loco Roco to replace the one where my mate had lost the UMD which is good as empty cases do my head in. Only Driver 76 left now.

On the toy shelf, I spotted a new and sealed Barcode Battler for £3.

Odd thing to find.

I'd be inclined to keep it sealed. From what I've heard, Barcode Battler games suck.

I'd be inclined to sell it for £20 profit. From what I've heard, Barcode Battler games suck.

What happens if you scan the barcode on the back of the Barcode Battler box? Will it have cataclysmic effects like meeting yourself in the future?
