So this enables playing 'homebrew'  ::) games on the 'cube, eh?

All for 30 earth pounds and without the addition of a snake-themed extra part?

Why that's dandy!

Or am I mis-reading this?  ;)

Yes, but it's only £15.  Works on the Wii too (but the GCOS patch to allow the GC 'homebrew' to work doesn't work on the latest Wii firmware).

Oh.. plus the cost of some SD/Micro SD/Mini SD cards off ePrey :)

Will be 'big lidding' my GC at RCM in October.  Multi-boot DVDs are the future :)

Im sourcing a replacement case and 'gamebit' at the moment  ;)

Do they want to relocate to Warrington or Stockport .. if not permanently, just once a month near to my pay day?

Most of it was crap today.

Loads of Sky boxes. NTL boxes. ADSL modems. Plates. Records. Toys. CDs. DVDs. TVs. Ornaments. Broken Xbox.

This N64 came with the 4MB expansion pack too which is nice. I've not seen one before.

Just need to get a rumble pack now.
