    Default Import Game Prices ?

    Hey all,

    I have resurrected my Dreamcast from the attic, and have it set up again. ahh happy days.

    Anyway, I love 2D shooters, and was surprised to learn that there have been a few releases from Japan since I last used my DC.

    Only trouble is, the import prices are VERY pricey (40 !!!). I didnt pay that much for games when the DC was in its infancy!

    I have had a look on e-bay, and games are a bit cheaper, but I don't want to pay over the odds.

    Can anyone suggest reasonable prices for the following:
    (all factory sealed)

    Border Down
    Shikigami No Shiro 2
    Psyvariar 2
    Zero Gunner 2 (I actually won this one today for 21)

    Any guidance would be most appreciated.

    Yeah, thanks man.

    I think I will use Play-Asia as a guide, but still buy off e-bay. (I'm tight get!)

    BTW, I always wondered what you looked like, so now I know !! You look like Ewan MacGregor when he was in Trainspotting (no offence!) LOLZ ;D

    40, in my day that woulda been a cheap import. I remember imports costing 70 or more hell at one point back in the 16bit days a guy paid over 150 for Street Fighter 2 on the Snes

    actually with the dollar being so crap against the pound it works out to 30 -34 quid for an import game and most of the time you get free delivery on newly released games

    Thanks for the info guys.
    Some idiots on ebay are bidding well over the odds, when I can get the same title for less on Play-Asia (and at no risk).
    Thats a good link you gave me Wraggs, thanks V. Much! 8)
