Wow that's a lot. Are GX4000 games worth that much? I've seen consoles by themselves go around the £40 mark.

its a good deal TBH

once I replace my cart only games ( 6 games ) with some of the boxed copies, sell the loose carts, console and duplicate games I will at least break even.

I just picked up a copy of Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros Edition for the 3DS as it was only a tenner. Seems pretty good so far.

Caught up on some VR titles in the PS E3 sale

Also got Farpoint with controller. These seem really hard to get hold of now.

Now some normal PS4 stuff (Deadpool was £4 in Asda!)

A couple of Switch games

Finally, to feed my obsession for Android game consoles. I couldn't resist. Game have reduced the console to £29.99, £9.99 for the extra controller and £9.99 for the remote control (that also has a qwerty keyboard on the reverse), so £49.99 in total :D

I traded in a load of 'select items' into CEX and got a decent amount of store credit. All paid for the following

Picked up a Neon Switch complete and working boxed from Facebook.

It came with a case (2 glass screen protectors) and 4 games (Mario Kart, Zelda, 1-2 Switch and Just Dance 2017).

£260!!!!

Going to give it to my son for his birthday in September.

Jumped at it because I doubt there will be a price cut this side of christmas.

I always say this, but you should check out Split/Second if you enjoyed Blur. In my opinion, it's the better game, it's just a shame they both got released together, ate into each other's market and neither got the sequel they deserved.
Sorry to bring this post back from the dead, but I just got round to playing Split/Second and you are absolutely right. My initial thought was "Better than a game from Bizarre Creations? You've got to be kidding!" but I've been hooked on Split all day.
