There was a charity shop where I used to live that had loads of PS1 games but I never bought any of them. They also had an original Xbox in the window at one point.

they had a pile of those really thick strategy guides too: gta, dragon age etc - but I've never bought those things (they cost nearly as much as the game new).  I might go back and get the pokemon one for my friends kid, as he's pokemon mad

A charity shop just opened in my village, nothing even vaguely video game related!

I probably shouldn't post this. But I've had some pretty good finds over the past year or so. I picked all this up from the same place, though not at the same time. There's a big car boot/sunday market type thing here in Birmingham on Sundays.

I got a Panasonic 3DO FZ-1boxed model 1 Saturn for a tenner.

A blue debug PS1boxed MD1

all the boots around my way are on fields - so they've all been rained off except 1 over the last month - but i did get phantasy star online ver2 for 99p - plenty of ps2 for sale there, but i don't touch that.

sunshine might bring out a few bargains.....

Some great scores there, especially on the 3DO and the Saturn!  :o
