LocalFound 11th Jan 2012
Went in last week but forgot to mention this. All PS1 and Xbox games are 49p Nationwide: Used obviously. Some good deals in there: I picked up about 10 games I've been after - which retail used around 2-5 quid each! still usual price online.I asked the guy at the till and he said it was something to do with clearing some older stock out.
Couldn't see this on the site, closest I could find was marked as expired from ages ago.

Also worth noting if you don't own the consoles:
PS1 + 1 control (Prob not DualShock) - 2.99 or psone for 4.99
Xbox with 1 control - 14.99

In store where???
Added to title. I thought that "merchant" would fill it in for me!

Also, why the cold voting? I'd like to see where you can pick up games for the original xbox cheaper than this?

been waiting on this for a while on xbox games alas i only have one gamestation within a reasonable distance and it has no stock
I think it's a hot deal. Theres a few I can think of that I'd like for 49p. My local gamestation will probably only have 37 copies of FIFA 05 though!

true dat
I picked up Gran Turismo 2 for 49p the other day. The case was mint and the manuals and disks looked as if they hadnt been used.
Will have a look tomorrow. It's well worth checking Gamestation for retro stuff, it's not always out on display. Nowadays ALL retro stuff is priced as the same. So Shining in the Darkness on the Megadrive is the same price as Fifia 95.
In the store in my area there have also been some Gamecube games for 49p, unfortunately all sport titles ;/ Most of the games are rubbish, but picked up few good ones: Thief Deadly Shadows, Splinter Cell for XBOX and Gran Turismo, Quake 2, Tomb Raider 3, Rampage World Tour and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 for PS1.

Suprisingly mine wasn't TOO bad. There was a bottom shelf of Fifa's and PGA tours and also a lot of copies of Splinter Cell - due to this being used for the original XBMC hacks! Managed to get all the splinter cells and need for speeds and still got change from a fiver!

Also, @foodge : If they had gamecube games, I'd be so happy. My GC could do with a good play but only got 3 games left now

Gutted they closed the Gamestation on Princes Street. I used to like that shop.

Only some games are backward compatible, use google to find the list of games available.

Not all of them. You will need to check the compatibility of each game here: en.wikipedia.org/wik…360
Also you will need to download special software for playing original XBOX games from XboxLIVE.

Also worth noting that a few of the original games play in 4:3 , bit annoying on a 16:9 monitor.

And idea where i can find this software?
It will be automatically downloaded from XBOX live upon trying to run original xbox game. Just make sure you're connected to XBOX LIVE and you'll be fine
FIFA 05 is not compatible

Few really good (compatible) games to look out for Black, Burnout 3, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Medal of Honour, COD Big Red One.

Shame one of my faves Urban Chaos:Riot Response isn't on there
Outrun 2 is compatitble on the 360. Good little game as well
I picked up a good few titles last week because I just got myself an Xperia Play. My local store has loads of games on the retro 49p shelf, but you do have to sift through the wall of old FIFAs to find anything decent!
PS1 games can be played on the PS3 can't they?

Any games that are worth keeeping an eye out for?

Most, but not all. Final Fantasy VIII for example won't work unless its the Platinum version. Normal one just won't load.
wish i had a store near me
Suppose there will be no chance of picking up titles like Shenmue 2 or Panzer Dragoon Orta, but still a good deal! Hot.
crikey, i remember buying a ps 1 on launch for a bargain £299 i think was
Jade Empire on the Xbox is great
royals

Fantasically irrelevant consideringt his is about the games, not the console.
Picked up a copy of Halo 2.
Its old but helps complete the set.

Can't imagine any of the Final Fantasy Games will be included, they still sell for £10+ on ebay.
if your lucky to find and final fantasy ps1 games they easy go for 10+ on ebay !
Looks like they are thinking of the future.

Probably clearing out all XBOX and PS1 games to make shelf space for the next Generation. Onlive and Vita launching this year in store. Dont be surprised if the PSP and PS2 areas disappear before long too

have a copy of shenmue 2 looking to sell. PM me if interested
We've picked up Shenmue 2, Final Fantasy Anthology, Disgaea 1 & 2, Phantom Brave and more in the 4 for £10, plus all of the Super Mario's on GBA - not 49p I admit, but still they do pop up occasionally for £2.99. Unfortunately, both of the Gamestations near me haven't had much stock the last couple of months.
Do they have Jade Empire!?
Store close to me has none.
If i can get jet set and hulk ultimate destruction, that will be an awesome quid!
Owwww and Oddworld, loved that!
Might have a look for SW:KOTOR... if anyone can pick up a few copies of it, they go on ebay for a bit more than that iirc
