    Im thinking about getting one purely for a bit of nostalgia, and a couple of games that I enjoyed many moons ago.

    What is the current price for a 2nd hand DC with a couple of controllers and a memory unit?

    Are the games/accesories still pretty easy to get hold of?

    I work for game and we've had a load of old games coming through, but IMO most of them will be write off's as they are scratched to bits.

    I paid £26 for my 2nd hand DC a few months ago. VMUs vary from £2-£6 and I've had to buy 6 of the buggers. Controllers are about £5-£7 but I haven't had to buy a 2nd one. Try and get hold of an arcade stick and a steering wheel for the full experience (I paid £30 for the stick and £15 for the wheel) Both are worth every penny. I want to sell a few of my games so let me know if you want some :)

    atm I'm thinking of selling:


    NHL2k
    Virtua Figher 3tb
    Sega GT

    I'll keep you in mind When and If I get one. What do you reckon is the best bet Ebay or Car boots/Computor fairs?

    why not try game and cash converter type shops, more expensive but you get a bit of come back if it is knackered.

    I got mine from Gamestation. I'd say go with Ebay because you're very unlikely to find a lot of hardware in most 2nd hand shops
