Ever consider PAL Snatcher? It was fairly less expensive last I checked.
I would love to hear if someone ever secured one cheaper than the $5 I got it for, haha.
Best of luck! I have a few friends who are ridiculous traders, if you really run out of options. One of them you can hit up on Instagram pretty easily.
I was just curious so I just looked up pricecharting for both:
PAL Mega CD CIB ver went for about $560-600 shipped in Dec, SEGA CD CIB $1300. Mannnn.
I totally understand wanting one version regardless of price I have the same call to make all the time. Usually it's how emotionally attached I am to the game itself. I got Bangai-O PAL on DC a few months ago because it was 2/3 the price, runs in 60 hz and the case is cooler, lol.
But I'm about to shell out for a CIB Shining Force CD and Genesis TMNT because I wish I hadn't sold in the '00s.
Best of luck whatever you go for!
I have a US Snatcher and a Super Nt I could sell if the price is right.Thats exactly how I am.
Hell yeah, SF CD is great. All the original SF are so good. Though Im partial to 1.
Edit: Also looking for Aero Blasters
PAL Snatcher goes for about £500. So I got a reproduction copy from these guys instead.
