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. :(
Yeah good luck finding a copy.
The only one I saw was for £20

Gamestation had some pre-owned copies that were as good as new for £15 last time I went in so I bought one in case it got hard to find or something.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Forgetting that its on the Wii.

I cant be arsed paying a tenner+ for a Wii game.(or any game really)
As it means I have to find its cables to play the game

Was tempted by a s/h copy of Tenchu Wii for £6 in HMV
I have read that its not like Tenchu should be

As I said.
If anyone can still get it at that price I will haplly buy a copy off them (and add on postage)

I have kind-of blown my monthly budget in an evening this week. While I'll be picking up any bargains I see really, I'm going to focus mostly on the Dreamcast. There's just something about that little white box that I adore, and I don't know what it is. Underdog appreciation, maybe?

Most significantly I picked up a copy of Shenmue 2, in very good condition, for just under £30. Other than a couple of marks on the sleeve corners it's pretty much mint - I didn't even need to replace the cases, which I have almost always had to do thus far with DC games. I did see a very apetising 'new and sealed' version on eBay, but I couldn't justify £150 for a game just because of a plastic wrapper, no matter how fanatical I am about the condition of the game! That's my monthly budget for this sort of thing out of the window in one game, at any rate.

I also found sealed copies of Space Channel 5, Virtua Tennis 1 and Ecco the Dolphin for £13, £9 and £8 respectively. Considering they're still factory sealed, I was quite pleased with myself, though I'm still acquainting myself with the sort of prices that games like these are supposed to go for, so I could have been ripped off for all I know!

Lastly, from eBay I caught MSR for a fiver. Not new, but may as well be. Even has a leaflet inside with a competition to win a Vauxhall VXR220!

And in my search for peripherals, I picked up both the mouse and keyboard, both box, the latter in new condition. I was going to bid on a boxed arcade stick too, but I missed the end of the auction and ran out of money.

Yeah, I was gutted to have missed that one, but I have heard it is a good game, so I don't mind paying £17 for it....better than the original full retail price :)

Don't tell me that! I paid £20 from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. And to make it worse it seems to have got lost in the post!

I stopped off at the local charity shop on the way home from work to see if i could pick up the GG with games that's been in the window all week. It wasn't there, so i went and asked if it had been sold.

Cue a puzzled face from the manageress and asking various staff members if they'd moved it....until the realisation came that some bugger had nicked it!! :( How low can you stoop, to steal from a charity shop? :evil:

Its not just me then :( I'm currently waiting for 4 packages, including my club nintendo SNES controller for Wii....Really hope they haven't lost that one!

Last November I had at least 6 items go missing, as Aztecca will testify! None of them ever turned up.....

That is an amazing amount of good games and lots of hours for a silly price. What was the condition of each?
