I got this through the post on Tuesday, bought from a Tamiya forum I frequent for £35 posted, which I thought was pretty fair.

A complete punt just because it happened to be in-stock at my local game store. Spent the past hour setting it up and, after a brief shot with Until Dawn, I'm very impressed! Currently downloading a tonne of updates for the various other games (digital & physical), can't wait to get stuck in.
I am just a tiny bit jealous right now.

Mint boxed original Gameboy, with Tetris and Terminator 2, it has all leaflets, instructions and warranty card, even the original receipt from when it was purchased, and unused link cable and the original headphones. £30 from a local Facebook group.

:oops: heh.

Having spent quality time with it all of yesterday and today, it is every bit as incredible as Sony make it out to be. I don't regret it at all :)

Actually interested but the £350-ish price is off-putting for now. Kinda intrigued by those crazy (and inevitably pervy) Japanese titles they showed (can't remember the names...think one was called 'Summer Lesson' or something). Doubt they will release over here anyway!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

^I don't know about that, Hatsune Miku got a release over here...and I imagine the up-take on this will be far greater in the West than in Japan. Fingers crossed anyway.

A mix of old and new arrived this past week...

1941 and Captain Commando both arrived (Daimakaimura is just there as I wanted both Supergrafx games I own in one picture). Not pictured is Wonder 3 as I'd forgotten that also arrived this week. That's it for silly expensive Capcom games for a while I think.

3 more Vita import games for the collection. All action games, Attack of Titan actually did get released digitally in English but I wanted a physical version for the collection, plus it looks dead easy to understand in Japanese anyway (not like a couple of the Capcom games I've been playing this week...)
