I'm sure that I have a spare copy sitting around the place if you want it. It doesn't have the instructions though, hence why I bought another copy (that had instructions with it).

Gamestation has loads of House of the Dead 3 for 49p, I picked one up but it doesn't work well on a pad... You can have mine for 49p if you want it :D

are there any good websites that list where carboots are in various areas? I've never been to one, but would give one a try one sunday (as longs as it's not raining!). I have googled this, but the information seems very random and outdated, so was wondering is there was a good site people use? thanks, B

Yesterday I got a component video/composite video cable. It's one of those cables that does the XBOX360, Wii and PS3/PS2. I'm probably going to use it on my PS2. Just wish the console end of the cable had longer cables going to each connector as it's a real stretch to fit them to two let alone 3 consoles at once! :-s

Other than that it was pretty slim pickings on the retro front (although the kids did get some Littlest Pet Shop stuff).

Also got F1 2011 360 for £5, plus a few DVD'S Avatar, no country for old men & arthur and the invisibles for 50p each. And finally got the buffy complete DVD set for £20 no sure why, seen them all 3 times maybe save it for the kids in a couple of years
