Well, that's pretty easy to do if you only have 4 of them!

Well, same goes for DC, PlayStation and Mega CD.. Although I have a few without spines for PlayStation. *gasp*

Mine are all PAL, so the spines are either all touched up with black marker and held together with sellotape (doesn't take long for that cardboard to get tatty) or torn and over-stretched cellophane.

I'll pay a fiver or a tenner more for the spine on the expensive titles - not so much if it's not one of the big hitters. Prefer to have it but it's not a deal breaker. Overall condition however is - disc has to be mint, instructions not ragged etc.

What do you guys think the rarest North American/Japanes/Pal Saturn game is, and when i say rare, i mean vertually impossible to ever find rare.
The only one i can think of is the PAL version of Jewl Of The Oracle, damn that game is impossible to get hold of.

I suppose physic killer tomato (tomaru) is rare, but there are all sorts of japanese games with a low print run, I imagine they're pretty sh*t though :)

Tomaru rocks, though.

I played a try-before-you-buy version (then destroyed it, of course).
Thoughts and prayers.

Loving your Vs fighters there Fred ^^^.

I'm amazed at how cheap some of the 4MB RAM inclusive versions compared to the crappy PAL PS1 ports which are even more expensive :shock: .

I mean, you can get X-Men Vs Streetfighter complete in the outer box with RAM cart for just over £20 inc. P&P from Japan (when I looked on ebay a few days ago) whereas the PAL PS1 version seems to sell for about £20 on it's own.

I'm into collecting the Vs games across both Saturn and PS1 so the going rate of the PAL PS1 versions is really annoying.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Buying PAL anything is annoying. Paying more for a dodgy conversion just because it's slightly rarer? Madness.

Not as bad as those shysters flogging VF2 and Sega Rally for £15 BINs on eBay - great games, but you're being ripped off if you pay more than a quid!
