The Cex site says it'll pay £20 (store credit) for an unboxed PlayStation 2! So I'm cashing mine in at the weekend.

I have just bought a Commodore 64 with a bundle of games. We had a Spectrum as a child, so it's nice to see what I missed out on.

As you would expect, I managed to get a copy of Fast Food, too. All I can say is that it's an inferior port in every way except the music.

Otherwise, I am very happy with the purchase.

Two Capcom fighters this week - Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for the PS4 (physical release) and Ultra Street Fighter 2 for the Switch. Didn't expect to enjoy Ultra SF2 quite so much, but I've been playing it quite a lot this weekend. Guess SF2 just knows how to pull me back in...

Is this available here in the UK or as a Japanese import? I remember hearing about a few months ago but found nowhere offering it for sale or pre-order.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

American or Japanese import. No physical UK release I'm afraid.

Ah, cheers. I'll have to try and get a copy then. A bit ironic since it took me forever to track down a reasonably-priced copy of the old PS3 version back when it was uncommon and selling for around £30! Seems like a bit of a waste of time now!

I almost didn't go for the PS4 version, but since I spend so much time on my PS4 these days (and my Xbox 360 sounds like its dying whenever I turn it on), I felt it made sense to grab it just in case!
