Confirmed: Poundland selling Gameboy Color games

PoundlandGameboyColorGamesFollowing a tip from the HotUKDeals forum, rumours were in the air that a large shipment of Nintendo Gameboy Color games hit the local Poundland shops. RetroCollect can now confirm the shops are full of the Gameboy Color game, SWIV.

Upon hearing the tip, we headed out to see if it really was true. This wouldn't be the first time Poundland has acquired New Old Stock of Video Games.

A few years back, they were stocking many sealed American Sega Game Gear games; Aladdin, Sonic 2, Ms Pac-Man, Jungle Book and Lion King. They have also been noted to have sold replacement Sony Playstation 1 game cases a good while back and are always stocked up on gaming accessories such as control pad cases and cables.

Although they had sold out by the time we arrived, Poundland were offering gaming accessories for the Sony Playstation 2. The once over £30 Thrustmaster Challenge Steering Wheel and the Sniper Rifle to be used with the Silent Scope games.

Despite them being limited to one per customer, they sold out rather quick as the bottom shelf would suggest.

So the next time you are out game shopping, be sure to look in the places you'd never think to go.
