Post your latest gaming purchases

Recommended Posts

Surprised there isn't a thread like this already, to go with the Retro one. Anyways, i guess I'll get the ball rolling.

I just bought an all-black JPN Game Boy Micro! I already have a Famicom Edition which has been my portable console of choice for so long due to its size and the M3 Perfect Lite I have with all my owned games on, it's just excellent in every possible way, but I've have always fancied a black one for ultimate sleekness.

They're different to the US ones in that the US ones were either black face with silver body or vice versa, not all black. I think Chinzon has a US one? I got it on eBay new for £32.99+shipping and free AC adaptor. I can't wait for it to turn up! A pic from the ad:

Other than that, it's been 360 bargains that I've been getting hold of. A couple cheapies like King Kong and Fuzion Frenzy 2 which whill be sold on when finished with, Tomb Raider Legend and a few more.

So, what gubbins have my fellow forumites bought recently? Pics are always nice, too. :)

I really like the GB Micro, so far i only have the one mine is in silver, my other half got it for me for christmas a couple of years ago, have been looking for a second but dont see them on the high street unless second hand anymore!! plus the games well the decent games are hard to find!

Or my high street is crap!!

Really like that black one, might have a search on ebay!!

The eBay seller I used still has some left, and gets them in quite often I think. He also has Famicom Ed., Blue, and Pink ones.

And yeah, the good GBA games are very hard to find! I tend to use eBay, but I only get EUR/PAL releases, as all the US ones on eBay tend to be fakes. I also use other forums like ntsc-uk and rllmuk. :)

As mentioned on various other threads, I bought Resident Evil : Umbrella Chronicles for the Wii and Virtua Tennis 3 for the 360.

I got given Tony Hawk's Project 8 (360) as a Christmas present, and I bought Assassin's Creed (360) due to being harassed into it, but I'm glad I did.

The last game I bought myself was Phoenix Wright: Justice For All. Everywhere I saw it was selling it for £29.99 - £34.99, but I happened upon a copy in WHSmith, brand new and sealed for £12.99. Bargain I thought :)

GAME have come up trumps yet again.

I ordered Mario & Sonic yesterday and it arrived today!

Cost me 40 quid, but I just got paid so never mind.

I went to ASDA and they had neither NiGHTS, Geometry Wars (DS and Wii versions) nor Zack & Wiki.

Correct, my US one is black body with silver face, been trying to source me a (decent) black faceplate for ages.

Bargainous though, Ed!

Had a pop into GAME with a few bits and pieces to trade in.

With the refund from them I got Flatout Ultimate Carnage for the 360 and NiGHTS for the Wii and then Ghost Squad which cost me 30 quid, so that wasn't too bad.

And yes, Cheggers is now off my shelf.
