Random pick ups: Check the box


Ive had Picks up from all over the place this pass couple of weeks Project zero 3 for cex payed for with some sort credit. The Two 360 games Grid and last remnant was a bit of a score £2.99 each, both break even at £3 cash in Cex a few other games pandemonium! ps1 always good to find and silent hill 3 and GTA SA not bad, Then I picked up a copy of jax 1 and found my self a bonus memory card this happened all the time finding other stuff in the box of games like xxx movies to memory cards never know what will fall out.
 
 



 So If you pick up a game in a tat shop that feels a bit heaver then it should be pop the box open and have a look mite be a bonus item hidden within so always Check the box!







Behold the free memory card!

Backwards games

 Ive been finding a lot of backwards compatabile games of late, Its a strange list of titles for xbox they are Loads of game you would think make the list and then you have some right rubbish on there too but its something worth thinking about if you want to collect for xbox
 360 and your looking for a knish the Backwards compatabile list would be a good thing to cross every game off a few rare Games on the list that adds to the price because they work on 360 with an update.
 




Take a look at the list as it stands no more games will be added so this is the final list!

    Retro exodus

    The dark age of retro gaming comes closer everyday, In a sense its pretty remarkable that Front line retail stores have been selling large amounts of retro for so long, Now the days of searching countless rows of PlayStation games will become a thing of the passed, Retro will still have its place but I can see it looking more like how grainger games handle things.


    In cased behind glass mostly rare but always overpriced, This is indeed a bit of a pisser for retro fans, collectors and re-sellers But its better then nothing at all two retail shops that have dropped retro way before gamestation, game and to a lesser extent CEX I can see CEX stopping PS2 and GAMECUBE soon. 
    As for GAME in my opinion The worst games retailer in history no retro, Overpriced on everything, most of the staff don't have a clue and Every time you go to the till they try and sell you one of them pissing reward cards. Game are the same company that owns gamestation to boot!


    The 49p sale at gamestation is in full swing and some PS2 have made it on to the sale here's what i found.




    SIX Games

    £1.73






    I had Some reward cash on my card so got myself a right bargain

    I have been back since to check and picked some more stuff up and round town centres charity shops lets take a look.

    That's the thing about stuff been 49p its really hard to pass anything up.

    Then just today i check out The market/carboot near my flat and got myself a VMU and a GAMECUBE memory card 251 for £1 each the one more trip to gamestation for a copy of assault on ps1.


    Think that mite be it for the 49p sale nothing new been put out so far but I will keep my eyes out and hope some Rare stuff comes in, So what did you get for 49p?

    Black tueday at Gamestation

    Its always quiet around this time of year all the charity shops are shutdown over xmas and new year even tho its been dry for thifting i still managed to get some eBay stuff in, let take a look at the last couple of weeks finds
     5 for 10 deal in gamestation

    Legaia 2,baldurs gate,FFX,FFXI,Dragonquest,

    Then the rest where 99p each

    Crash ts,taito legends,
    toejam and earl3,
    dragonquest,Rayman(GBA),sonic(GBA)Crash xs(GV


    So not a bad haul for this time of Year But things my be about to get a lot harder to find as Gamestation will stop Carrying retro by the end of the month according to my informants
    (The guy who served me last time I was in gamestation)


     So It started today a Mad sale on retro everything is 49p on Playstation 1 and under, and xbox as well the only format that there not letting go yet is ps2 thats still on 5 for 10 for now but its only a matter of time so if you looking for cheap PS1 games now is the time to get down to your local gamestation 50p  I mite pop back and go pick me up a copy of Wipeout 2097!
