The odd overly expensive item asides, that's a VERY nice setup there. :)

Nice to see a shop, how things used to look back in the day, they even have the original high prices! (and higher! :lol: ) Can't see them flying off the shelves at those prices, maybe thats why it looks more museum like :wink:
WANTED: ANY SNES or GAMEBOY GAMES, OR EMPTY BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS, going for FULL SETS of both.

The Android is playing a bit of Guitar Hero
A well built Cloud Strife is toning his butt muscles in the corner.

The shop is actually in a street which is full of retro game shops. There are about 5 or 6 of them in this street, and a few more in the nearby streets. But the bad thing is that they seem to have an agreement on the prices: everything in there is just bloody expensive. You can find the odd "normal" price, but most of the time, it's just crazy.

This particular shop is indeed huge, and it feels like visiting a museum. The staff isn't particularly friendly, but it's Paris, so it's just normal there. There are however a few retro shops with reasonable prices and friendly staff though, but not in the same area. (pm me if you want the address)

I was here two weeks ago. The place is indeed immense but yes pretty expensive. That aside, you definately have to give it up to the folks that have put this place together and the other retro shops in the area. This is in my opinion the closest thing the West has in terms of 'feel' to Super Potato in Tokyo and other shops in Osaka. A stretch I know, but if you guys know of other areas in Europe then please list!

Someone needs to call this shop and explain what can only be described as impossible

Akira is lying face down!

You NEVER see Akira lying down. I mean he even sleeps standing up.

They lose points for that - NOBODY puts Akira on the ground - that's nearly as bad as insulting the Prophet Muhammed
