Off to Tesco' for me then!
I managed to get de Blob 2 (£5), Front Mission Evolved (£3) & Red Steel 2 (£5) yesterday at Tesco online. :)

And I've just ordered Arcana Heart 3 LE for £17.99 despite me not having played a fighter since the Dreamcast days.

Got a text whilst at work today to say my long awaited Xbox TE stick had arrived from Zavvi. Got home and unpacked it to find they had sent me a PS3 stick instead. Idiots. I'm getting a refund and buying a Qanba Q4 instead.

She's in pristine condition, not been tampered with in anyway, exactly as she was when she left the factory.

Well it might not run RGB standard, I can't remember. Not sure if that matters to you of course!

That's correct it outputs composite video and stereo audio.

Obviously it's up to you what you do with it Trev, personally I would not have it modded because they are not easy to find in such pristine condition. When I was looking for one I found that there were a lot less about than the SF Jr and finding a nice boxed one that didnt cost crazy money took me a lot of searching.

Eternal Sonata Xbox 360.

Was getting a little bit paranoid that this would start increasing in price in the next few years so snagged it now for £8

No i won't mod it. It'll look just fine on my Panasonic 14" CRT through a composite input. Stop worrying, Paulie :wink:

I found there to be only a small difference with using the SNES on rgb compared to composite. Certainly compared to the mega drive where the difference is huge.

Pfft, RGB mod makes a console better. And RGB on a smaller screen looks lush.
