As long as it is cheap, then yes! I keep the good bits and sell the rest.

That's lame, why buy things if you have no intention of using them? You'd be better leaving it for other potential retro gamers.

You'd have to pay me £1.28 to except those FIFA,'s ! Local game sells them for 10p so will buy in for 1p... My Nan bought me 40 copies of FIFA for my Birthday

I keep what I don't have and if anything I get is in better condition than my stuff I swap it out. What happens if I don't buy it and no one else does, it will get taken to the dump, so I have saved them for other collectors. I buy stuff to sell at car boot sales, I have been doing this since 2001, its a great way to get my collection cheap and make money in the process.

They are already gone, I took the whole bundle to CEX (I took a few games out for my collection too)

Yep, Fifa 08 was worth the most, strange. I got trade in credit for the Fifa's and the PS2 games.

@Big Shoes

If you decide to get rid of Crash, Spider or one of the G-Con's from that PS1 lot then give me shout :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

CEX has got really mean for trade ins I got Star Wars Battlefronts 2 on X Box in a charity shop 7pp CEX sells for £25 gives you £2 trade in.. Good for getting cheap 360 games hit or miss if they work as most are badly scratched..
