Well, I didn't get my Xillia 2 today but no biggie (not as if I'm ready to play it immediately anyway) but I did get these two this week:

Loving having a physical release for Ultra SFIV and I can't wait to get stuck in. Must also thank dste for getting this for me as he got it a wee bit cheaper :)

I bought the MGS Legacy Collection now rather than later as the prices already seem to be going upwards of the original RRP and it's understandable because it's a great set. It includes:

- Metal Gear
- Metal Gear 2
- Metal Gear Solid
- Metal Gear Solid Special Missions
- Metal Gear Solid 2 HD
- Metal Gear Solid 3 HD
- Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition
- Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker HD

- 2 x MGS Digital Graphic Novels
- A nice artbook with history of the series plus all regional box art and promo poster art for every game.

I'm actually puzzled as to why this set went under the radar when the much lesser HD Collection got a load of attention :? . The only thing that spoils the Legacy Collection for me is that the two PS1 games aren't on the discs but are downloads with a voucher code in the box :evil: . Still a brilliant set regardless but might be worth noting for anybody who thinks of picking up a pre-owned copy.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Found this ps2 lot locally. £20. Nothing too exciting but a nice few sets of games, plus Ebay fodder of Shadow of the col to make my money back.

Yeah that's a fantastic pick up, I would pay 20 for both yakuzas alone, as finding number 2 was such a hard task for me.

Also the metal gear collection above, I got that recently and I two am shocked it went under the radar, I haven't seen it anywhere since I picked it up for around 24.99 brand new and sealed.

Some really good games in there I'd say Project Zero and Kingdom Hearts alone would make you your money back, never knew there was a PS2 Xena game.. Must ask the game with the Arcade Machine is it proper games or just breakout and Pac Man clones with names like Hangly Man and Bat and Ball?

Well i havent played it yet but by the look of the blurb on the back of the case i believe you above statement to be bang on :lol: . Looks like "jazzy" fake 3d versions of old games that probably dont play quite right and dont have the correct licenses!

Put a cheeky bid in and promptly forgot all about it as i thought i'd have no chance. It finished while i was away on holiday and i nearly fell over when i saw i'd won. :D

They're always around the £50 mark. being the 3rd volume as well, this would have been the hardest to find much like the 4th volume in the first .hack series. Like you say though, these do not appear often over here so dodging those customs fees is a massive bonus

Well done. By the way, do you have Arc the Lad End of Darkness on PS2? Think its US only?

Got a ps4 with infamous for 349 at asda yesterday. Impressed so far especially the speed of flicking between applications.

Yes mate, I have that. It is deffo ntsc only. I've realised i've still not finished the PAL RPG set....i didn't realise that Digimon World 4 had a PAL release....so...still one to go! There's probably a couple of others hiding in the depths of the PS2 catalogue i don't know about!! Still more research to be done, methinks. :)
