What price are you willing to pay?

Mine was £60 boxed (PAL model from Consolegoods), I doubt you're gonna get one cheaper than that at the moment.
That was around my price range, never heard of Consolegoods before, having a good look now!! Seemed to have sold out of the ones in that price bracket but will keep a check on the site....Thanks for the info :mrgreen:

Yeah, I think I may have got one of the last ones in that price bracket (the box had some slight damage - didn't bother me in the slightest, I bought it to play on). That would have been July last year - it may be worth e-mailing him, he doesn't update the site as often as he should to be honest.

Was lucky enough to find one on a local auction, a guy selling his collection, boxed console, multitap, four controllers and a few games to kickstart me.

Would like to pick up a second non boxed just to keep plugged in, and start getting some good titles in the library. The second R type needs to be snapped up to complete the game :wink: Then into some Sega classics. SFII, splatterhouse and NZ story are three on the to get list as well.

Why would you need a second one to "plug in"? Almost sounds like you are just keeping one in the box for no reason?

A few recent pick ups.

You're right Van, just thinking about it :lol: I'm going back to silly ways! The whole point of deciding to collect for one retro console was to remove clutter of a roomful, and here I am again thinking about building it all up again. Old habits die hard, easy to slip back into them again. Best to use the $$$ to get some decent titles for it :)

Nice, Laird! I haven't picked up the book, but the PCE software bible is an essential website.

I have a TurboGrafx 16 with an Everdrive, great piece of kit. I want to get another Turbo Express handheld too, I have had 2 in the past but have sold them for various reasons.

Looks great! Unluckily it seems you can't order the book anymore :(
