Oh yes, before I forget

Follow-up to The things I go through for a hundred quid… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I pointed out to Gamestation that they hadn’t given me anything for Sonic & Knuckles, and they were happy to rectify the problem. Since it was technically unboxed (I had the sleeve, but had misplaced the tray, strangely…) it was only 50p, but the money wasn’t the issue – it was the principle of the thing…

The things I go through for a hundred quid…

I’ve just traded-in all my old consoles to Gamestation in preparation for the Wii; I’ve only used the GameCube for the past few years, and I’ve bought a lot of the old games for the GBA and DS.

I had a devil of a job last night untangling all the wires and digging out all the bits and pieces dotted around here and there; I was knackered by the end of it. Then I had to lug them across town. Still, at least I got some money out of it; it’s more than I had when there were just sitting around gathering dust…

For the lazy among you, I got £112.20 (excluding the GameCube – I got the GameBoy attachment for it but forgot the cover for the expansion port, and they won’t take it without the cover; I’ve found it, though, and I’ll take it back in when I go for the Wii).

For those of you that like details, here’s the receipt and a list of what I don’t have anymore…
