[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 29/04/18

Hello guys,

It looks like summer has come and past. Last week we had 30°C and a gret sun and today I write you from a rainy city. April is really a strange month…

Anyway I’m not here to talk about weather but about games. And after last week when I finished and started a lot of games, last seven days have been rather quiet. I didn’t find anything in the markets I’ve attended and I lost a good deal, but this time was not my mistake.

In a second hand shop a few kms away from where I live they were selling a PS3 Fat for 60€ but the price was about to be cut to 30€ since it was more than two months that the console was sitting there. So I’ve patiently waited a few days and I took a super heavy PS3 for a ridiculous price. The HDMI cable was missing but I had a spare one to use, as well as a compatible controller. The console worked perfectly…until I tried to load a game. While the software was perfectly functioning, the loading time took an eternity and in the end it was a failure. I tried thousand times with different CDs but nothing to do. So I sadly had to bring it back to the shop and take my 30€ back 😦

It could have really been a way to get in touch with a new console. Next time I’ll have more luck…

Regarding other systems I’ve bought a juicy lot of Xbox 360 games for a ridiculous price, like 1-1,50€ each. The good thing about collecting Xbox 360 games is that they’re incredibly cheap, even though in the lot there were quite important games, like Far Cry 4. Probably these kind of games will never reach the prices that NES games are demanding at the moment but in the future they will become vintage and collectables to I’m preparing myself to be a lucky possessor of worthy games 🙂
