Great video - thanks! I was planning to go but the distance/kids was an issue. Looked to had been a fantastic weekend. Think I would had felt right at home being surrounded by all those old home computers and consoles!

Talking of consoles... what is that console in the video at 4m50s to 4m56s? Japanese NES?

I was not impressed that both Rezzed and Retro Revival are near the same areas, the south have been screwed over again and again!

Nice vid though, reminds me of GEEK

I think it's funny when people say these should be more south, I want them more north! It was a 3 hour and 15 minute drive to get there this time, Play Expo last year was marginally closer on faster roads in Manchester, I think that was a far better show to attend. Seller prices were way above even top end ebay prices at this show, if any of them shifted much stock I would be shocked even though they had a lot of sought after games. Some examples I saw: Zelda in a tatty box for snes 60, FF7 Platinum 17, common PS2 titles 15+, 20 for Parappa the Rapper, a shuffle through the Gamecube tray prices 20-45, 50 for a console only nes!?, Thunderforce IV complete 25, Shenmue 2 50. The worst guys were the stall close to where Amibay was, numerous times I heard people ask how much something was and when they got a price it was quickly put back and they walked away, the guy running it turned to his mate and said he didn't buy either, it had me thinking if they even realised how much they were taking the piss with the prices. Later on I went back and noticed a boxed Majora's Mask had gone which they were asking 40 for, a minute later they noticed it's absence and said it had been pinched (probably the only thing they shifted all day lol), not surprising since a door was open in the corner to let air in not 4 feet from where it was though.
