<24.99> JAMMA pass-through adaptor (to give me six button with my Pandora's Box 3 instead of five)

Next on the list is an MVS->JAMMA adaptor if I can find one for a decent price that isn't already broken.

I think I have more things to add to this but I haven't been keeping up with my spreadsheet recently. I'll see about updating it soon.

I look forward to next year holding zero hardware purchases and my 'score' plummeting back down to the bottom of the list.

Wireless wouldn't be enough to make me upgrade and having bought a Pro that'll hopefully future proof me for a bit.

I'd be all over wireless, I think.

When you come to MeatUp I'd be interested to see what you think of non-Pro VR - I have no current urge to upgrade, but if there's a big jump I might be tempted.

Conceptually, yeah; but the wire doesn't annoy me nearly enough to spend yet another few hundred quid after all the money I've spent this year already.

Well, technically I have had some experience of it as I spent a good few hours VRing on my OG PS4 before the upgrade. It's almost impossible to say for sure what the difference is unless you had the same game running side by side on the two different consoles. I've theorised that the Pro has possibly helped me with nausea stuff but I don't know for sure, it's also possible that I just developed my 'VR legs' after spending a decent amount of time with the tech in general.

I was browsing Ebay this morning and it was just there. :) The seller messaged me after and seems genuine, so we'll see what state the games are actually in when they arrive.

Of course if they're in good nick, I might have to buy a PS4 next :D

A lot of the others are 'cheap' but Horizon should have been at least £20 itself

Fingers crossed they actually turn up Devilman. I have to admit, it does sound too good to be true.

I've bought <127.54> worth of things including... Street Fighter 2 (Switch), Snake Pass (Switch), The Turning Test (Xbox One), Refunct (Xbox One), A load of games in the Xbox backwards compatible sale (Xbox 360) and probably many more.

Hmph. More like they've realised they've underpriced it. Same thing happened with some NES games earlier in the week. They just refunded the payment without explanation

<7.95> I bought Project Cars a few weeks ago and have played it for about an hour. It's mega-pretty though. I'm just going to stop buying games I think, all I need is Hearthstone and fruit machine emulators.

Not really worth the hassle over £20. I'm going to put the money towards a Wii U I think instead. :)

It might be if they plan to re-list the items to get a higher price?

Tell him you'll post him a cheque :)

Or a ... money order? Or postal order? Can't remember what they were called. Can you still get those?

I pretty much only buy things on Ebay through PayPal. That way, if they don't send the item, Ebay covers the cost and automatically refunds you.

You can still get postal orders - I had one of my website customers pay through one the other week. And I'm waiting for a cheque from another one. And a third sent me a banker's draft from Ireland. Retro payment methods for retro games. :)
