Thats well & good when the pricing is consistent & there's loads of examples. But you get some sellers offering games at a cheap BIN, only to hike up the postage [as a way of defeating charges], & throw that into the loop of not many examples of a loose unboxed one...I was left wondering.
I bought it for €31 including delivery to Ireland, I thought it was pretty ok at that. I'll give the 16bit consoles a rest now & focus on other cart based consoles for a while. I wouldn't mind eventually having a complete set of NTSC 32X titles.
In general, PAL English releases tend to be rarer than NTSC US ones. For most consoles. Just think of the market size difference really - there would be many more US NTSC copies printed of most games.
The 32X especially - NTSC games are all much cheaper. Just compare stuff like NTSC Chaotix, Kolibri and TMEK to the PAL versions, the difference is crazy.
A US 32X complete collection isn't the hardest thing in the world to do. A PAL one? You need thousands to spend.
Yeah agreed, a PAL 32X collection can fugg right off in this case
