Niiiiice :) . Been tempted by one of those myself after watching a lot of GameCentre CX and getting back into the retro 'mood'. Never bothered previously as I thought they were expensive to get hold of over here.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I picked up Aquanaut's Holiday on PS3. It cost me a fortune (£70) but it's worth far more than that on eBay. Great game as well, it's given me new ideas for my fish tank :D

well worth getting, especially at £20 delivered, it came with a big bag of green tea in the box as a freebie too, chap on amibay selling them at the moment, hes modding them and cleaning all the contacts too, cant fault it. great playing on my old nes carts at full speed too :-)

2 for £10 at GAME today

Kirby Power Paintbrush (DS) - decent enough game and works well with the stylus. bought it as my 3 year old picked it up and wanted it but looks like i might be playing it too!
Viva Pinata (360) - loved this when i had it on PC. will be great to revisit it. chilled out care free gaming at its best.

only paid about £6 as i had some reward points. racked up a load of 'accolades' as i purchased some ms points online and traded stuff in a while ago.

also got another import ps2 game on the way but i'll post pics when i get it :D

Picked up the Limited Edition version of Strike Witches for the PSP from Play-Asia. Even with P&P its a good £30 cheaper than it should be and also probably about £50 cheaper than ebay!
