I was bored and looking at retro games on eBay ending that day and Pikmin 2 was on a £102.

I did have a wee bid on some Wii games but didn't win any of them.

Enjoyed that Nintendo Life video.

There is definitely an important historical/archival element to the system-exclusive games becoming scarce and expensive, but for titles that are available on modern systems it does make you wonder. Is Super Mario Sunshine on Cube worth £32 at CEX, when you could pick up the 3D Allstars Collection for the same price? Particularly when Cube games are going to become more scratched/used, rely on memory cards and can look like they were drowned in vaseline on a 4K telly.

It's an interesting conversation, but the demand for Nintendo games will always remain high in my opinion. Their brand is synonymous with quality and timeless design. It's like trying to buy a VW Golf when there's a SEAT or Skoda available with 95% of the same parts, yet the VW will be worth more. At least that's how I view stuff like Timesplitters 2 on the GameCube - there's literally no reason to get it on the Cube unless that's your only console option...

I remember when SOTN come out on 360, people were freaking out that it would plummet in value. It never did and now about £400 (complete with soundtrack) which is only £60 less than buying a Series X & playing via backwards compatibility.

Nah, it was a manky USA SNES. That Blizzard Arcade Collection looks interesting to me, but at £17 for three SNES games it can wait for a price drop.

I actually quite like the look of Mas' Spectrum keyboard. Bit blocky, but nice colour scheme. Jim's has a retro charm to it that doesn't quite outweigh the ugly. Cappa's melts my eyes.

That Spectrum keyboard is from the later era when Alan Sugar took over the brand, and basically made it a different Amstrad CPC - but both are at least fun to press. The Acorn Electron keyboard is gross and goes KLENK every time you press a key.
