In fairness he may be the rare beast that paid the RRP for this machine, €400... but I doubt it, I don't think GS actually sold them at anything other than €200.

Could have sworn they were €400 on GameStop for ages no?

I think they had them on the site for ages at the €400 mark but once they came into stock they were at the €200 price point.
But I'm quite prepared to be mistaken.

I think the fact it's a slim 360 he tested it on solves the mystery, pretty obvious really. Well known for their cartridge compatibility. He may have performed that voodoo, but getting non - blurry pictures is just a step too far.

Sounds more like either the ad originally had multiple games contained within (original Xbox games in this case), or they bizarrely changed the content of the original ad and replaced with a totally new game.

Edit: Replying to the Arcade1UP post.

280 now.

In fairness since the rampage cab and some other cabs are not listed or sold anymore by GameStop ireland, this is hardly worth a dreamer of the year post.

The only alternative for buyers at the moment is to buy a rampgae cab for £400 off Amazon or €520 from Littlewoods.

Supply and demand folks.

Just saw this over on AO, not joking when I say I could actually cry.

7 Capcom Status 25s together in a row is unheard of, should be a glorious moment...no wait, some blind **** has hand painted them all!

Come on. Who doesn't want to go to the Retro Game Zone with all your retro game favourites like Lightning McQueen and for some reason, the Simpsons on a sofa?

Looks like the wall decoration of a youth club somewhere.
"Hey, Bert, I got these arcade things whern the 'bowl down the road closed, one or two have a few fag burns"
"Ah sure, I have a few tins of paint in the boot, no one will notice, also, the kids love Pixar movies and the Simpsons don't they?"
