I suspect that may happen, and frankly, I'm not prepared to take the chance.

Not that "retro", but I did pick up a copy of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite & the UMD version of Die Hard 4.0 for 50p each. They did have a few other PSP titles in there for the same price, so I'll pop back in & grab the rest during the week.

I've had some great stuff from Tooting. One shop doing 7 PS2 games for £5 - bought a massive suitcase full and they threw in 3 minty boxed (and upon inspection possibly never played) GBA games , Spyro New Beginning , Final Fantasy and Tales of Phantasia.

Theres a couple of shops near the 'Bec that were pretty good too.
