Its fairly rare and always goes for good money, I picked up one, which sadly had no back inlay or instructions for around a tenner. But complete ones can go for alot on occasion.

A few things, that I have on my look out for list:

N64:
Paper Mario
Destruction Derby 64
Mario Party 3 (ONLY the box, I have cart & instructions)

PS1:
R-Type Delta

Dreamcast
Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike
Super Street Fighter 2 X: For Matching Service (JAP)
Space Chanel 5 Part 2

...and any Snes Game, box, instruction manual, inner white tray, I don;t have!
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

That's another Japanese release. You can get it with English dialogue for PS2. At one point there was a project to do a fan translation (with new dialogue) for DC but I don't think it ever came to anything. Why the PS2 dialogue hasn't been ripped to replace the Japanese on DC I'm not sure, it should be relatively easy.

Said fan translation of the original DC release was completed way back in 2007 and a more complete version was completed earlier this year.

Great to see the PS3/PSN 'HD' update reviewed in RG this month. The game was a day one purchase for me (no surprise given my avatar!) and it's a damn fine game. :D

The main thing that took me a while to get used to was the game being split over two screens. Its easy to ignore the goons on the top screen shooting at you when your fixed on trying to dodge the enemies on the bottom screen! Its nice and tough but after a lot of deaths you get used to it. Like you said, I find it easier to deal with compared to getting the best ranks on SS.
Thanks for the overview mate, I can see how the split screen would throw you it seems like a very strange perspective!

Actively looking for two PS2 games now, both going to be s0ds to get in good nick and complete for a sub £30

Metal Gear Solid 3 subsistence and Silent Hill Collection
Gminty ive sent you a message about the Silent Hill collection but im not sure if its gone through. Anyway got a copy if your interested.

I really wanted to get part 2 for PS2 but it was so damn expensive. Then I looked properly at my ltd edition US version that was under a tenner and it contains part 1 and 2! Why people pay big money for the pal version is beyond me.

Virtually ever MGS:subsistence and Silent Hill collection I come across in local CEX's looks like it has been wheelspun on.

Im not much of a collector on ps2 stuff at the moment , its too new for me...

Was quite pleased lately to have come across 2 special editions I wasnt even looking for,but couldnt pass up for £2.00 each

The getaway - 100,000,000 discs edition (special edition in grey tinted sleeve (BT vans unedited!)) - sealed
and
Hardware online arena 150,000,000 discs edition - not sealed but very tidy

as well as one i had never even heard of

Torrente 3 : the protector

Sadly trawling through CEX/Gamestation gives me little pleasure these days

My most wanted game at the moment is probably Beggar Prince or Legend of Wukong for the MD

What was the deal with the Jap Dreamcast Space Channel 5 part 2(Big Box).. The few times I saw it on evilbay its sold for over £200! I know you get a Ulala Alarm Clock and somebody said you also get her Headphones she wears... Is it the merchandise that make it worth the money or because it was released near the end of the Dreamcasts life and a low print run?

I can rest easy now that I got that Soul Calibur IV steelbook :D . Can't wait to get hold of the special edition for V when it comes out.
