    I find their prices pretty high to be honest. I bought a copy of 3DAges 2500 Outrun from Play Asia for around £15 including delivery and VGI want £35 for it!! £20 profit is a bit high especially when Play Asia got my copy to me in about a week. They will always charge a premium price I guess as they hold items in stock and you can just buy there and then. For consoles i'd use Ebay myself. I've had a few Saturns, Megadrives, DC's, a Jamma Cabinet, loads of games and accessories off there over the last couple of years and never had a problem with any of them. I guess the downside is waiting for what you want to come up though.

    Lee and the guys at VGI do somthing that hardly anyone alse dare do though, which is buy up desirable stock from all over the place at the price it is at the time, problem with this is you can buy a title like Radient silvergun for £120 when they are fetching £150 and a month later they can drop to £100 which leaves it looking expensive.
    One thing I have found though is when prices rise, white saturns after "Edge retro special" fetching £250+, they still kept their units at around £80.
