I know people can go through phases of buying game for a particular system but some people take it to extremes. I was browsing through Instagram the other day when I came across somebody who had bought fifteen hundred games in the last year, the vast majority of these were games you'd never play, pure sh1te of the highest order. I think I'd probably have about nine hundred but that's after been collecting for twenty five years and to be honest I'd struggle to find the time to play the games I have but I'd still buy an odd one. I always regret not picking up more US SNES games when they were cheaper, games where the language barrier would be an issue on the Japanese releases.

In my (admittedly limited) experience, those that buy stuff at those kinds of volumes tend to burn out and sell it on just as quick.

You wouldn't have time to look at the games, never mind play them, It averages out at about four games a day. Maybe as you say they just unload everything just as quick when the realise that nobody really needs twenty years worth of every sports franchise known to man.I'd say the last five or six years have seen the biggest rises, a lot of the Japanese stuff has gotten expensive in the last few years.

Not a bargain but a pretty nice Sonic art book

https://www.candb.com/en/artwork/207...tion-sega.html

€105 is a steep enough price but I'd imagine that for the price the quality would be great

Wow! I pre-ordered two of these for €80ish including postage from the publisher back in November I think.

Got one for me and one for a friend's birthday.

Edit: I'm wrong, I ordered 2 of the standard edition back then. €43 each now though.

Not a bargain, just a request.

Anyone have a good source for a NTSC Nes? Just picked up one locally for the case but I want some innards from the US of A for it

Not retro but somewhat arcade, Darius Burst Chronicle Saviours is discounted on PS4 to €17.99 which is a nice discount, that's from their PS Store.

This and 3 others are for sale across the road for 650gbp for I reckon 200 would be a more sensible price.

I put a few games up in the marketplace.
Prices are reasonable i think for what the games are.

Golden Discs in Dundrum are selling off a lot of older games for €2 each. I just picked up a few today, and though not a massive selection, I found a couple on the PS2 like Gran Turismo 4. There's also a few shelves of older PC games, and I'm sure the PS3 stock was going for maybe €5 each (maybe even some for €2 also?), so probably worth a look if any of you are passing.
