    While I was out today I managed to pick up Spyro 1,2 and 3 for the PS1 for £1 each and also Crash Bandicoot and Crash Bash for £1 each. All in pretty good condition as well.

    50Hz/60Hz switch, so the console is no longer an abomination.
    Region lockout on/off.

    I see, cool :)

    so the region lockout does the JAP carts actually fit the UK SNES? or does it only work for US games or something?

    The other way round, japanese carts fit fine as they are the same size and shape as pal carts, its US carts that don't fit but you can cut the cart slot so they fit or use a converter if like me you would rather not cut the snes.

    Not all will work with the region lock disabled, any advanced lockout protected game won't boot (Kirby superstar, Mario RPG & a few others I can't remember).

    Also need the 60Hz switch, or they will just play in 50Hz.


    Switch method is outdated anyway.

    SuperCIC is now the best for imports. Much nicer solution, everything works (including the advanced lockout games). Automatic frequency switch after 10 seconds to get around the boot check, can be paired up with the IGR chip so can reset the console from controller & switch mode from controller if you want.

    How much do you think I could get? It's a US unit but they're region free (I'm going to add a region switch to it)

    I've only done the 50/60Hz mod, no region lockout fixing (yet).

    I just don't use either that much.

I wanted resident evil 2 but bidding on that on its own was £27 then I spotted a listing for that lot and nobody bidded apart from myself.That will be 3 copies of resident evil 1 I have but I will just sell then on to fund resident evil 3 nemesis

    dam this thread!! I've open an ebay account again, I cancelled my last one as it got hacked and its been years since I've had one.

    Now I'm shopping for old games that I've given away/sold on/binned years ago.
