Managed to get a copy today after a bit of a trek. Worth the hassle though, I'd say to keep checking in on stock as the store I went to was listing non on Thursday and Friday but was listing having one in on Saturday so bit of pot luck.

Just reserved one in Bromsgrove for £24.99. Still a bargain. Strange really as when I first read this thread they had the price as £15 but didn't have any, I kept checking and now it's popped up but at £24.99.

I checked availability for both the local retail park and town centre here and neither have any stock. Same for the nearest towns. Not interested in this myself but I would have reserved + collected a copy from the retail park for you but no dice it would seem :(
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I'm glad I picked this up when I did - twenty quid from Blockbuster when they closed down one of their branches near me a couple of years ago. At the time I didn't really have twenty quid and went without food for a day or two, but I knew if I didn't grab it there and then it would probably be out of my price range forevermore.

I drove from Coventry to Kettering to get a copy (£24.99) last Sunday having previously tried (and failed) to order a copy for home delivery.

Having seen the thread on here this evening, I thought I'd see if there were any other copies around as I could see others were still looking. I'd much rather a gamer who actually wants the game got their hands on a copy than someone who'll just stick it on eBay to make a quick buck.

Anyway, I've taken a look and whilst there's nothing left near me in the West Midlands, it seems that as at 11.00pm today, 25th March, there appear to be copies at Sheffield Crystal Peaks and Rotherham Parkgate.

Hope that helps someone...

Cheers to thingonaspring. Sourced me a copy from Argos in London and sent it down special delivery at no profit to himself, a true gent and my new best friend. :D

No problem, glad to see them go to a home where they'll be appreciated, rather than just collecting dust :oops: :lol:
