Games found in a consoles dvd drive

Post by MadManDan79 » Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:51 pm

What games have people here found in a consoles dvd drive after purchasing a console?

I've found Call of duty MW2 (sadly broken), Fifa 13, Lego star wars, Call of duty advanced warfare (sadly disc 1) WWE 2014 (sadly broken) for the xbox 360 consoles I've fixed

I also found another game stuck in a ps2s dvd drive but can't remember the name.

Bought a GameCube from a charity shop for £8 just for the controllers and it had Mario Kart Double Dash in it - later found an empty case for it in another shop!

Sonic CD was in my Mega CD as an unexpected bonus too.

Not quite the same, but I did buy a Nintendo DSi and it had two DS games in the case that came with it that weren't mean't to be there. Unfortunately they were prime shovelware.... :(

Many moons ago, sent my Saturn off to be region-modded. Came back with a copy of Skeleton Warriors in the drive.

A similar thing happened to me. I sent my PS1 in (for some reason that I can't remember) and it came back with a copy of Krazy Ivan. Played it for a bit before returning it to the store.

One of my PAL MegaCD games has an NTSC SegaCD copy of Ecco the Dolphin in the back of it.

Similar here, I got a Forza disc alongside my Splinter Cell for XBox. Can't recall if it was a charity shop or ebay buy.

One of my PC Engine Duo consoles had a rather rare Strider CD in it.

When I bought my boxed mega cd 2 off ebay as a console only with no games. I opened it up upon receiving it and inside was complete copies of sonic cd and final fight :shock:

Best bonus I have ever got.

Not quite the same as finding additional games in a drive, but i just remembered I ordered the PS2 PAL game We Love Katamari on ebay a while back, and although they sent the right items, they also included was another disc in a CD paper sleeve - Micro Machines V4.

But then on the flip side, I bought from a charity shop Richard Burns Rally on PS2....but I made the mistake of not clearly checking the disc. It was the PC version of the game in a PS2 box, complete with PC instructions. I suppose the PC version would be superior, but I kind of prefer to play these games on the consoles.
