My final missing piece from my last SNES collection has arrived. Can't wait to get stuck into it.

^that FF3 box looks nice.

conflict desert storm - platinum,ps2 good condition and complete 99p
hulk - ps2 complete
they should have been 99p each but when i inspected the discs i said no to hulk because it has a couple of deep scratches,the woman looked and said to just take it for free then :D

I've noticed that myself, the Wii version is about £4-5 whilst the 360 version is £25.

Does anyone have any idea why that may be?
The only reason I can come up with is an extremely limited run.

The PS2 and Wii versions are pretty much everywhere, but I've yet to see more than one copy of Xbox 360 Bully on any shelves at all. In fact CeX's £25 copy is cheaper than the £28 GAME usually asks for.

Think it has something to do with the game being shipped as broken on the 360, when it was released they had to bring out an emergency [patch to get the game to work on xbox 360 consoles.

You will find alot of the smaller print run 360 games hold a higher value.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 and the original NFS Most Wanted are a couple of others.

A-Train HX is an exception though, you can usually find it for a fiver in CEX.

It's funny as round here it's the other way round, I see copies of the 360 version all of the time but very rarely see copies of the cheaper Wii version which is the one that I'm considering buying.

Yesterday I bought Gunman Clive for 3DS from the eShop - it's only £1.99, and is basically a traditional sort of Rolling Thunder/Shinobi style game set in the Wild West with cool 'drawn' looking graphics. It's also on IOS for about £1.50 I think, but the 3DS version is slightly better due to the physical controls. Why this is £2 and other games are £10 is still very odd to me - this is probably the best £2 to spend on the eShop right now.

I also got that Sonic Jump game free from the 12 days of Christmas promotion on the app store - not really feeling it at the moment as I don't like tilt controls, shame as the game looks pretty fun.

Ugh...I've wanted to play that Code of Princess for ages now but I suppose it won't get a PAL release. I love Kinu Nishimura's art for the game :) . Do you have an American 3DS to play it on then Shinobi? Was tempted to get a Jap model to play this and other 3DS games that won't come out over here.

Nice Tales of Graces F too. I've seen that LE at reasonable prices in GAME and HMV but the outer boxes have always been crumpled up or ripped so I've always left it behind :|
