I wasn't aware that STV had a physical store now too.

This place is Cash Converters in the U.K. The people who sell their stuff there are either feeding a habit or are seriously hard up. He often gets me games out of there at a price of pennies. Some great Master System games. Had about 100 Ps1 games off of him for £5

This is why I don't collect retro stuff any more. All the best games are hideously expensive. Even the rubbish games go for more than I'd be comfortable paying for them.
I sold on my PC Engine and Saturn setups last year because all the games I wanted were way over £100 apiece. Madness.

I just checked prices for Guardian Force and nearly had a baby! 150 quid! Jesus! I remember buying this 10 years ago for 20! And it's not even that good!

I have a Saturn, SNES, Megadrive, N64,Dreamcast and a PS3 that can run ps1 and ps2 games. Saturn is my beloved child of them all, but here in Europe, only 700 000 saturns sold. This is why prices of the games are so high and common games like Torico, Swagman or Mortal Kombat Trilogy become holly grails.

I picked up a nice boxed Japanese White Saturn with 30 games for 3,000 YEN even adding SMJ fees and sea freighting it back to the UK the total was only about £50.

I'll probably sell the games and get a Rhea installed.
Selling up soon!

Because most collectors don't play what they collect ;)

Anyone know what a fully working Japanese SEGA Saturn with a Psy-Q dev kit port (VGA style) on the side is worth these days?
Unfortunately I don't have any of the associated gubbins that plugged into the dev kit port, so I just run it as a regular Japanese Saturn :(
Wanted:
- PCBs: Ordyne, Rainbow Islands, Bomb Jack, Rolling Thunder
- Parts: SR3 coin mech, coin mech metal clip/screw for Dino King Door

I'd say go ask on the forum full of people that get a boner out of such things but never write a line of code in their entire life, but it seems it's been down for a while. Not surprising since the owner is a douchebag. Anyway end of rant :awe: i'm guessing your unit isnt worth much more or less than a retail unit.
