Yes it did so i want expecting it to arrive so quick. I imagine they wont last long at that price.

We've had Ratchet Gladiator in the house before, my son loved it, i never played it tbh...but i think i sold it :oops: so i thought i'd do the right thing! My experience of the series pretty much stems from A Crack in Time on the PS3, which i thoroughly enjoyed....so i'm also interested to see what they're like. Plus, you can't go wrong for £1.49 each :D

Received my DC VGA box through today, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!

Also got a free PS1 with a load of games yesterday. Nothing overly brilliant (although there was a few racing games I haven't got that are always worth a shot).

Haven't bought any games on any system other than Dreamcast for a couple of months now - until I read this thread, as I am now buying that Desi Adda game to add to my list of obscure Sports (or sports related) PS2 games! And I may pick it up for the PSP too.

Word of the day: Brilliant.

There's a small handful of known Indian PS2 exclusives that will work on PAL consoles but naturally they're hard to find because they only got released over there. I read this on Playstationcollecting.com anyway :) . Interesting stories behind the games in question but no idea if they're any good or not


Thats where I heard about it too, fascinating thread

I did the same and picked them all up! I've played through the 1st one and while it isn't(obviously) as graphically impressive it's still fun. I've only dabbled in the 2nd, but you can see the obvious improvements.

However my son has played through them all and loves them all as much as the PS3 games, except the 2 PSP to PS2 ports of Secret Agent Clank and Size matters.

I can't wait for the new PS3 game next month!

Popped into Gamestation today and traded a few ps3 games I've finished with using the 20% extra trade in value this week and walked out with the limited edition of Arcana Heart 3 for £3 :)
