The covers that CEX reprint was a rather big story awhile back that they now have on the reprinted cover "this is a reprinted cover" well along those lines.

Instead of trying to flog as the real deal.

Surprised about your local store as those normally ran by people that care about games.

I once bought Starfox Adventures from CEX that had a reprinted cover. Months later, I tried to trade it in and they couldn't scan the barcode. The funny thing is, the game's value has risen so they shot themselves in the foot with that one. I think Gamestation used to sell disc-only games in generic cases.

I do wonder how they came in originally as would have had a barcode to scan.

Yeah GAME sells disc only games in plane cases.

How is Super Circuit only £6!? I assumed the GBA would be pricey, but even Advance Wars is only £8. *rethinks answer*

It's Gamecube that's really rocketed up in cost. I was looking at putting together a Gamecube lineup but man, the prices of the software are scary indeed these days.

Yep even though my Dreamcast collection is double in size, my GameCube one would by far worth the most money and even Fire Emblem which I paid silly money for has gone up in value since.

I will never let go of PMTTYD. Never. It's all I have to remind me of the days when Paper Mario was good. Crying or Very sad

Super Paper Mario was good!

I think I want to have another crack at this and go solely with the GBA as my machine of choice. A question - looking at the cheapest GBA model on CEX, it's an original purple GBA at £25 whereas the cheapest GBA SP is £35. Do you reckon it'd be worth it to pay the extra tenner for the improved functionality of the GBA SP for this game?

Backlight makes a world of difference, I'd say so

I don't remember it being an issue for me at the time, but I can't imagine playing the old GBA now in less than perfect sunshine. That screen was Not Bright.

Cappa meanwhile could get them for £40 and 99p respectively.

I got a copy of Super Smash Bros Melee in Cash Convertors for a few quid, then swapped it in Games Centre for a silver Game Boy Micro and a Puyo Puyo game.  Tongue

The Famicom edition of the Micro looks lush, always wanted one but a tad expensive and doubt I'd use it.
