Spring time and the retro dream grows ever bigger.

Posted by japaneseretrovideogames on May 5, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Spring finally arrived in Japan after awful weather for most of the winter. Spring is laso a time for spring cleaning which is something i am doing and starting to list again the ever popular bargain bundles.

This year is a year of massive concentration of sales outside of eBay, on here, on Facebook and privately. My ebay store is down in size from an average of 1,200 items to 650 now.Many games that would have been listed on eBay will now be here at a cheaper price of course. I am also working all hours and when i have spare time gaming myself. Have been adding some good stuff to my own collection, my 16 and 32 bit collections are growing very nicely.

Looking forward to continuing the hard work and good sales but not looking forward to the japanese summer heat. At least i am not back in my home town London while the Olympics are on, i don't think i could  stand the crowds and travel disruption.

Time for a spot of AES gaming, been working too hard some of the time and it can be hard to shut down.

Back soon.

Hey steve I live in Stratford 10 minutes away from the olympic park and stadium etc, and yes it was absolutely nuts. So very busy, but I did get to be inside the stadium myself and I also worked as a traffic marshal through the olypmics and paralympics. My family even got paralympics and as much as I dislike crowds the atmosphere was amazing.

I started my retro gaming collection ever since i got a dreamcast a few years ago because my friend had one when he was younger but it was too expensive for me to afford and then unfortunately sega went under. However I have been hooked on retro games since. I still have my mega drive and it was my very first console, which made me a big sega fan an hence getting a sega saturn aswell as a dreamcast. My sega collection is coming along nicely. The only thing I'm missing that I missed out in my childhood is a snes and n64. But more so snes. That's definitely my next retro console.

Good luck with business and your collection. All the best,

I used to work quite near Stratford a long time ago in Romford. The whole place looked a lot different now than i recall back then.
