Yeah man,as a spotty, fat adolescent in 1990 that's often all you could get! Once found a massive stack in a bin near my school, stashed em in the woods on lunchbreak so me n my mates could pick em up at 3pm, one of my mates must've tipped someone off, someone swiped the stash!!!!!!!!!

It was a tragedy, at the time. :(

Never even understood why there was a slot in the game cases...

I can honestly say that once a memory card went in a console - it stayed there

I suppose those crazy people who play games at other peoples houses might explain it...

...and for games that take up a whole memory card.

And like lots of us here if you have more games than you can shake a stick at and have no chance of using just one card

oh yes :mrgreen:

bought a master system about 9 months ago, big pile of games were in the store. apparently they had a retro games expert in the store, it was busy enough for me to check the ebay app on my phone unnoticed. i spotted a boxed copy of power strike 2 in the cabinet, it was getting a couple of bids and reached about £15 with a few days left. i picked it up, cib with a few other bits. gave about £9 for the lot. went home and posted on a site i go on about what i had bought,
someone said 'you got quite a deal there' and someone else replied 'quite a deal? are you joking thats one of the best deals for ages that any of us have seen'

i had been collecting for the master system less than a week, it frequently sells for 3 figure sums
