      All Grainger Games stores are now shut. Wonder if they will continue as online only...

        I had a similar issue. Had a £20 voucher. Picked up Dynasty Warriors 9 as the extra game. Reeeeeeeeally should have waited for reviews on that one!

      Just went in CEX, about 12 vita games, 4 reprinted covers. Even some switch games had fake covers. Never buying there again

        Oh my! Seems like they may be getting loose vita games and decided to make cases for them rather then selling them without a game case. Rayman cover is cut-off at the bottom

        Roscoe Jones that is also mostly the case, but CeX does this to ask a CiB price for a loose cart.

        They print a cover to sell a game as "complete", there was on YouTube even an example of a Vita game in a 3ds case...

        I honestly wouldn't doubt that to be true. There is already a Vita version out there, and if you recall Dariusburst got released on the PS4 first before the Vita version came out from LRG. Good chance in my book.

        I rang paypal when I realized and they opened a case. Didn't actually occur to me to as PA at the time as there is no duplicate transaction they just took it 2x. Gonna email PA this morning so I'm coming at it from both sides. Doubly annoying as this month was the month I'd been super careful and was on track to stay in the black all month

        Good to know! I am still waiting on LRGs to release it, but ever since the ESRB logo was required, I haven't heard anymore updates on it. I believe it was suppose to be released towards the end of last year.

        Roscoe Jones It had an error where the moment the card clicked in the entire system error'd, couldn't get any games to work so I had to send it in. I think all of my GBAs are just the 100 screen variants. I collect them for display over usage though so it doesn't bother me, I'm more interested in the quality/authenticity of the shell. Think Pikachu should be turning up Monday so I'll get some pics posted

        I was thinking about collecting GBAs, but in the end I managed to pick up a sealed ags101 for £179 last year and I just use that daily. I have been looking for a spare, but at the minute there are no new 101s near that price. Thinking of buying a modded one but I might wait. Are there any pictures up Billybobbean anywhere? Love to see your collection.

        DojoDan I’ve posted a couple of pics in the past but i can’t remember what thread they ended up in. I’ll take some nice shiny new ones when the set is complete, hopefully Monday.

        I’m fine with used as long as the units aren’t totally trashed. All of mine have scratches but none of them are visible from more than a couple of feet away so that works for me.

        Uhh. I've reworked mine over the last few days. Stuck a load of lesser played Xbox/PS2 games in a box which made room for my PS4 stuff. Now I have no room at all on my shelves for new stuff, and boxes full of stuff that I can't fit anywhere. Let alone the "un-played" percentage!

        2 of the issues were amazon, 1 UK, 1 US. UK delivery just didn’t turn up so I told them where they could shove the parcel since I needed it today, US order was damaged so I got a partial refund.
        Heavy-arm order turned up today finally
        Play-Asia order is still MIA, put in a ticket about it
