Memory leak?


Probably. It's only on the 360 version. They might have fixed it with Xbox One BC. They fixed Panzer Dragoon Orta (PAL) on 360 when it was made BC with the One, that game used to crash immediately after the cutscene before stage 4. However I don't think it's been added to Xbox One yet.

I reckon they might have, the XB/360 'emulation' on the One is quite different to how it was handled on the 360 itself

Did OutRun just not sell on Xbox so there's less copies? I often wonder what makes games in the last generation or two become expensive. Apparently the Futurama game on Xbox is also silly money.

Id imagine this is based on someone somewhere hearing that the game was worth a bundle and adding it for sale. Someone else spotted it and followed suit. It happens quite a bit in the vhs/blu ray/dvd collectors world.

For example, the Disney Diamond edition vhs. It's now an urban legend that they are worth hundreds where as they are actually worth SFA.

Look at the marketplace how the activity has gone down, same thing on ebay. Prices started getting mental 4 or 5 years ago as a result people are hanging onto their games.

Imagine being back in the 2000s, you could most games 16-bit era for nickels!

I really miss those days of looking through charity shops and finding hoards of Snes/Megadrive/NES games. It really felt like you were finding gold. That part of the hobby is all but gone now.

I only started watching game chasers a while ago, it got me all revved up to go to some markets, but then I thought "what's the feckin point, I'm about 15 years too later."

Balbriggan was great

I remember one day getting a boxed Amiga 600 for 15 euro (it had been used as a fire alarm panel)
Two megadrives
A N64 cw Boxed Mario 64 and Mario cart for 15 euro again
Then I bought a N64 box off an auld won for 2 euro.

All in the same day

Never had much luck in charity shops

My best was my mam finding a Snes with about 30 top tier games (We're talking the likes of Super Metroid, Castlevania IV, Sunset Riders etc) in a charity shop for 30 euro. The week previous she'd found an unopened boxed NES in another charity shop for 30.

Actually, less 'my best' and more 'my mam's best' tbh - she used to do the charity shop circuit twice a week in Bray (there were actually quite a few of them) and I'd constantly be getting random calls saying things like 'Oisin, they have a Megadrive in Waronwant/Oxfam/The Cancer Society with X games for X amount of money, what should I do??'

Got interesting when disc based systems started appearing as I'd have to talk her through how to test out the disc drive over the phone

Johnny U, formerly common in these parts, did find Musha in the bargain bin of The RAGE, and they've been over charging ever since to make up the loss!
