I spotted a Platinum copy of WWE SmackDown Vs. Raw 2011 in Games Centre yesterday. Must have done all right for them to bother re-releasing it.

WWE All Stars was there too!

then you cant call the ps1 retro either its inside every ps2 and 3
Does that mean that the original GameBoy didn't become retro until the GameBoy Advance stopped being produced? I'm confused... :?

My local Blockbuster is still selling the PS2 and Comet until it shut down last week.

I pre-ordered Fifa 12 on amazon today, its only £14.91 delivered, annoyingly I bought 2011 thinking that would be the last one, still haven't even opened it yet :oops:

I've been after WWE Allstars and never seen it in a shop and still want it! Roo how much was it?

It was in a shop called Games Centre, and here's a link to the WWE All Stars PS2 website listing:

http://www.gamescentre.co.uk/product/se ... ars/PT2774

They've got six new copies. It's the Scottish equivelent of CEX, except not half as manky. Having ordered my games from there before, it comes heartily recommended. The in-store price was exactly the same - £14.99. Genuine PAL copy, from the green PEGI rating to the English text on the back of the box.

Hope that helps!

...safe to assume that, as someone who hasn't opened his pre-ordered copy of FIFA 11 yet has already pre-ordered FIFA 12 and is a member of a forum called Retro Gamer, bensonrad isn't really pursuing the PS2 version of WWE All Stars for it's quality...

Dawgs, remember there's a giant OTHER SCENE for gaming than the usual West, Europe, Australia and Japan.

You have countries like Russia, Africa, Brazil and many, many others all playing now. They can't afford the latest tech (I'm guessing a PS3 would cost the equivalent of $5,000 in Namibia) but those funky little Megadrive and SNES ripoffs sell very nicely indeed. In fact the PS2 has only been officially on sale in Brazil since 2009.

Yes, you read that right. 2009.

:shock: Blim!

Given the Tech Toy type MS & MD stuff that came out long after the systems were dead here it'll be interesting to see what curiosities they come up with.

Hey! I only bought Fifa 11 long after its release date when it hit a cheaper £10 price, as I had figured it would be the last version to come out on the PS2, I will play it, I am just going to have to get cracking before the new one comes out to get my moneys worth :lol: I am a big fan of the Hulkster so defo want WWE Allstars, I don't own any modern consoles, so am stuck with the PS2 version, can't be any worse than Legends of Wrestling! or those WCW Nitro/Thunder games on the PS1. If Hulks in it, I buy it. :lol:
