The sudden desire to start collecting Sega GameGear games has lead me to visit a few local charity shops in pursuit. I havenâ€™t seen any GameGear stuff yet, although I have managed to pick up a few bargains, including a promo copy of Ridge Racer 7 on PlayStation 3 for Â£2 and Call of Duty 4 on PC for the same price. Another store had Halo and Star Wars: Republic Commando on Xbox for a mere quid each while today I saw a boxed â€œSaga Mega Driveâ€ with some random boxing game for Â£8.
I have to admit that I am surprised – every charity shop Iâ€™ve been in to has had games in, even if they are just a few old FIFA games for PlayStation 2. There seems to be a few savvy owners around too – one had Final Fantasy VIII on PSone priced up at Â£9.99. Still, that isn’t a bad price seeing that the cheapest price on Amazon is Â£22.48.
