Although I'm not 100% what I've just bought, from what I can tell its an Amiga 1200, about 30 big box games, loads of cd's for it( I'm amusing there is a cd drive I can't see in the pics), a commodore monitor and loads of other stuff...........99p. That's uk English pence. Under £1. :shock: :D
Spoke to the seller already, all confirmed to pic up in the week. Pics when I get it.
my friend has just been and picked this up for me. its miles away from where i live so i wont get it til he comes down in a few weeks but......it has a cd32 in the bundle too :o . He just sent me some pics. Plus the guy who "selling" it is clearing out the estate of a dead friend and has basically just said he thinks there is a garage full of this sort of stuff and did i want it. yikes.

I know it's nothing to do with me, but I'd sooner this stuff went to someone who collects and loves it rather than going to a house clearance company who'd just sling it on ebay at ridiculous mark ups.

I got Dark Souls 2 and Tekken 6 form the Xbox marketplace for the princely sum of nothing, having been bought with a xbox live £10.00 card I got on Amazon for £5.99 due to a pricing censored up, and then paid for using a gift voucher I got as a reward for completing a training course. Nice.

Yeah! I'm looking forward to giving it a shot, somehow it completely passed me by.

No fear. I only sell doubles and things I have zero interest in. Plus when I do eBay I'm one of the seemingly few left who actually auction most things.

Yeah, thats what I meant, I mean I've got no say in it, but I prefer the idea of retro stuff being passed to people who'll appreciate it rather than scalpers.

Inspired by the recent Retro Asylum Master System podcast, I picked up one of the Blaze Master System handhelds for a few quid on ebay. I don't remember Sonic Chaos being that ridiculously fast?

Bought a cheap copy of Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects from ebay. I seem to have been playing too many quality games lately and fancied picking up an alleged stinker just to see how bad it can be (I remember it getting very low scores back on release).
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

A few more for PS3; the list of stuff I want for that console is getting thin now.

Got these over the weekend. Own the 2 Wii U ones on other consoles but have decided to start picking up as many Wii U games as I can as prices seem to be going up.

Also for some reason Injustice on PS4 is starting to get a difficult to find, especially new.
