Blimey, that is annoying.

I sold a megadrive game once and did the effective opposite. They collected it from my house whilst I was out and my brother handed it over, I had forgotten that my concert tickets for the coming months were stashed in there for safekeeping. Overall about £150's worth.

Tried and tried but could not get hold of the guy afterwards . . . funny that!

Oh man, I'd be gutted.

Emailed the guy and he said he's found it still in his Wii, he's gonna gonna send it me so now real harm done, just annoying, seemed like a sincere guy to be fair, we've all done it or something like it.

How much was it?

I want a portable with perfect SNES Super FX and Mode 7 emu. Does this do it?
I paid £71.99 inc. Special Delivery from http://www.dingoo.co.uk/ . I could of bought the A330 from BestOfferBuy for £62.90, but once you factor in postage and customs charges then it simply gets too expensive to make it worthwhile.

From what I read on the forums the recent release of PocketSnes is supposed to be very good and should handle it otherwise you'll have to use the 4D version of Snes9x to handle the Mode 7 games.
Crikey, £72?? Is that with special delivery included? Deal Extreme are offering Free worldwide shipping, so it effectively costs £52.

Awesome, how? Was it just a random reduction at that store's manager's descretion?
It's on offer. It was on the currys website for a while. Offer is now in store only.
If you can find a copy
My local has sold out

If anyone sees one for that price pick us up a copy and ill have it (and add on postage)

Finally got A Shadows Tale on Wii. I was just browsing ShopTo and noticed it had come back into stock. Bought it then looked again. Out of stock so I must have snagged the last copy.

:D

I just wanted to load up the 'phone with what appear to be some of the better quality games available. It seems that even in the realms of DLC games the collector bug for me still exists! I've plenty of free time oat the moment so have played nearly all of them already - some for quite some time. As there's so many of them my iPhone gaming "needs" will now be well catered for well into the future weeks and months. :)

Picked up Heavy Rain and Goldeneye (Wii) this week. I've only given Goldeye a quick go but kinda like it from what I've played so far - might need to tweak the Wii controls a bit though.

Oh, dear. If you'd looked back a couple of pages, you'll have seen that a few other forumites got it for £4.97 at PC World. :(
