    Not sure how relevant but a couple of things.

    Almost zero reviews, has a similar Web address to an established company that sells racking.

    Refers to itself as monster bid but that could be a parent company etc.

    Refers to a non existent web address in the terms to redeem vouchers -

    Monster Shop Gift Voucher?

    The director of the company has resigned, not sure the relevance -

    The website doesn't seem to use secure https connection, the transactions are via PayPal by the looks of it so not that alarming as you don't give them your credit card details but still looks off these days not to use https.

    The website appears to checkout fine, they also offer PayPal as an option for payment so if you get any issues just put a claim in.
    Nice one @Qix_ Heat added

    Great price although to be honest I enjoyed it that much I sold it for the real thing and now have an expensive retro hobby on my hands as if my PS4 wasn’t expensive enough

    I can assure these guys are first class. Ordered two games recently - SOTC and Burnout Remastered. Always delivered within a couple of days of ordering. They also respond via twitter usually within a couple of hours.

    Just to add to this, their social media presense is very active (they are on facebook and twitter) and their name “monsterbid” is actually a seller on Amazon too and has some good reviews as a seller.

    Great price tho wouldn't have the balls to take a chance on it from them

    Voted hot for price

    Thanks for that, as long as people have used them then it's fine, just highlighting a few potential points in case it was another hippo electronics etc. I've seen numerous suspect sites over the last year, it's hard to tell legit.

    Pressing's no good, you need to push it sucker
    Nintendo must have tonnes of these things lying around.
    These have saturated the market, the only thing less common than these now is Oxygen
    Poor scalpers are stuck with these on eBay
    Clas Ohlson deal works out cheaper and is a more reputable brand: hotukdeals.com/dea…448

    Good thing too!
    Really good Nintendo quality as ever. Love mine.
    Should be £20 now come on.
    Sold out now? Can just see a “coming soon” button and no option to buy

    £20 seriously? This is so much better than those crappy sega offerings which you can get for £20. Excellent interface, two controllers, 21 pre-installed and officially licensed games and you can easily hack it and add ROMs from all different systems.

    I'm wiling to buy one from a scalper for £34.99 including delivery
    Just. Buy. A. Raspberry. Pi.

    Not played on it so you're probably right. Can we agree on £40?

    I went the opposite way and sold my retro stuff due to PAL, urgh. We really were treated as second-class citizens back then. It has a negative effect though, I thought I was an F-Zero master until I first played the NTSC version on an imported SNES

    Read about this, what was the issue (some) games running slower? I remember some games on the Dreamcast had a 50/60hz option, although not that many TVs supported 60hz, which is still an issue today
