Yes just because it's from HMV doesn't make it any more better. Cold deal.
Thanks op

HMV is a retailer, so i would say that people may consider it more reliable, you could even say more better than eBay.
I cant see them where are they? Link?
HMV haven't listed the PSP slim in ages. I doubt it was ever part of the deal listed here.

Cheapest I could find on fleabay is one with 'SCATCHES ON THE SCREEN' and games are TOM & JERRY AND SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS lol at £30.98 inc p&p! Only cheaper one I found 'works perfectly' but the 'case is completely smashed up'

However - I'm sure you can link to one under £19.98 that does not need repair . . .

eBay = sell something bad and get bad feedback and lose money = less likely to do it.

HMV = sell your barely working console to a 17 year old with no clue and do a runner.

eBay is probably the safest place to buy in the world if you are not a moron...

Edit: also the dsi is far overpriced.

Edited by: "Horrorwood" 31st May 2012
The original DS is horrendous. Lite is still very nice and there's a great catalogue of games.
Unfortunately for Nintendo/Sony, it's one of the reasons I haven't bought a new handheld.
You'll be lucky to actually receive them, I've ordered a second hand ps2 from hmv in the past and the order was cancelled and last week ordered a Psp which still hasn't been sent out, do they actually check their pre owned stock when taking orders?
used ds lite £50!!?? hahahahahaha

good little items but they shouldnt be more than £30 used now

Lol, if he's a crook from Africa, he'll probably get deported instead.
I had a great time with my original DS, amazing you can get one now for £20 (albeit second hand). Me and my two sisters had one each and had a great time playing mario cart. For those who might not know, ya only need one copy of the game in order for everyone to be able to play together over wifi, pretty sweet
Too bad 3DS is the same shape as the original DS pretty much.. awkward to hold for an extended period, and the slide pad is too slippery on mine now.

My PSP and Vita are much more comfortable to hold because of the rounded sides, i would have thought nintendo would learn from that to be honest.. still, at least they have a couple of handfuls worth of good exclusive games on their systems.

what the **** are you talking about? ergonomically the DS and its various iterations was vastly superior to the PSP and indeed the vita. DS had more games than the PSP too. Just like the 3DS has more games than the Vita (although the vita doesn't really have any games so that isn't hard)

What could Nintendo learn anything from a mismanaged failure of a company like sony?

how to lose 4 billion dollars trying to sell a console?
how to release a spectacular failure of a handheld with no games for 200 quid?
how to run a company into the ground?

Never really saw any reason to get a dsi, its practically the same as the other two as far as I'm aware, and it doesn't even play gameboy advanced games!

There are good and bad in both camps, you seem old enough to appreciate that?

To balance this out I recently took the plunge on a 3ds with Mario Land and I have to say It's getting more attention that the vita (mostly due to lack of games), I'll be picking up Mario Kart at some point and (fingers crossed) luigis mansion 2 but I won't be buying crap like mario tennis or secret mysteries.

Where a game appears on both formats (i.e fifa) it's vastly superior on Vita due to the sheer power of the thing. The thing that irritates the most about vita is the damned touch screen, it's uneccessary, tacked on and intrusive. At least with DS games it feels a little more intuative.

Right... off to get burning skies, do FPS shooters work on the DS outside of the circle pad pro? I have a vague recollection of matroid having a decent control system...
Nice price on the original DS - for the Lites those are overpriced... if you can stomach going into places like Crack Converters and Cash Generators you can pick up the Lites for either £34.99 or £39.99...

I've had that problem once in the past, a couple of years back, ended up claiming compensation off royal mail, even for the sake of 20 quid.

Since then I just block most bidders who only have a yellow star. Best thing to do is just to add a quid onto the postage costs to cover recorded.

It was ergonomic in that the d-pad was actually usable (on the DSi and original). it was ergonomic in that the buttons were actually responsive. it was ergonomic in that it had a a tough screen. the psp had none of these things. what it did have was a terrible movable button that made games that required deftness such as peacewalker a nightmare.

Sony's E3 2012 conference was expected to focus heavily on its ailing handheld; there would be announcement after announcement, surely, in a bid to revive the fortunes of a console which, in its native Japan, is regularly outsold by its predecessor PSP. Instead Sony announced a fighting game we knew about last month, outed a spinoff already revealed by Game Informer, and slapped a subtitle on the Call Of Duty game they announced last year.
