Just got an original Xbox debug. The green unit. Just need to plug it in now to see if anything is on the drive.

Good old Zavvi, not only was the box of the limited edition copy of Blazblue trashed and unsealed but no game was included. It also doesn't help that the website seems to be set up to make it difficult to return an item. After a lot of head scratching I managed to put a return request in!

Finally got myself a Mega Duck with sixteen games (five of which are boxed) - been after one of these for about eight years, so'm VERY happy! It's a Game Boy wannabe in case you don't know, I'll stick some pictures up once I get my camera back.

Also, yesterday Micro Machines V3 arrived through my letterbox - I didn't buy it and it had a note inside saying it's the best one ever, so can only assume it's from someone here - but whom? Massively appreciated, whoever you are! :D

Yep it was crazy, all the trashed limited edtion extras were in the outer box but there was no game case or card. The cellophane wrapping was still attached to the box but it had obviously been opened at the top. All this happened before the game was put in the transit envelope because that was still sealed. Very strange.

"game cartridge"? How old is that email template or whatever it is that they are using? :lol:

Out of interest, which Blazblue did you order? :) . I bought the Ltd Editions of Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift from ebay and I'm sure they were through Zavvi's ebay outlet. No problems there except they were posted in bloody jiffy bags :roll:
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
