    OK, lets try this one.

    As I’ve just bought a GBA SP, I’m looking for a good cheap source of games. So far one stands out above the others for price, but I’ve not used them yet. Examples are;

    Title: Prince Of Persia - The Sands Of Time $14.99 (so £9 ish)
    Tony Hawk’s – Underground $9.99 (£6)
    Metroid Zero Mission $18.99 (£11)
    Sabre Wolf $14.99 (£9)
    Golden Sun - the Lost Age $25.99 (£15)


    And to quote from their site;
    Simply we offer very low price for the hottest and latest GBA games on both Japanese & English titles! All Japanese & English games are NEW and 1st hand, we DO NOT sell preowned games

    All the above examples were from the English selection.

    Down sides would be Paypal account required or the use of international money order, check, or cash. Delivery charges are;
    By Order value up to $50 = $6.95 Registered Air Mail
    $50.01 = $10.95 and so on.

    Anyone got a better value supplier?
    Anyone want to know (or do you know) who this is?

    Well as this has not elicited a single as single “whose the retailer” either the prices aren’t that good, or no one really wants any GBA games at the moment, or its obvious who the supplier is. :rolleyes:

    Hmmm...I amy be wrong but it looks like a bootleg store (only paypal/money transfer = anonomous).. if you buy one check that the carts are nintendo stamped and that the games do not have a jingle at the front of the game promoting the group that ripped it...

    Good Luck

    I have no issues with the PayPal, etc. I've come across loads of US sites that only use these methods. The only thing I found disconcerting was no Postal Address could be found within the site and that if you select a game they all seem to have 5* ratings. However, until you mentioned it, I had not thought them anything other than a genuine supplier - guess I'll have to pick a cheap game and try them.

    Anyone else got any info on this supplier?

    Hi alexanderpinder,

    Thanks for the offer, but to be honest I would only be interested in F Zero, but I can get that locally for £10.

    Best place for these would be in the Gaming classifieds section, as this would be most appropriate and there is little activity in this section anyway. :thumbsup: (although I'm trying to get a few more threads on the go)

    Hi gizlaroc,

    Yes, this has been my 1st choice in the past, but GBAstore is much cheaper for many of the games - indeed in many instances the price new is close to videogamseplus preplayed ones. Perhaps I will just have to give them a try to see how they perform.

    i have got my pink SP and 5 games from them, and they are very fine and they came fast. I am happy with them, and their friendly support. if you want cheap games, there are some copies games at ebay always, but i don't recommend ebay :blush:

    Hi GeorgeShadow,

    I will be giving them a try, but for the moment its back to CD's & DVD's, until I make some headway with the current games on the go.
