This has been owned by my mate since he bought it new. Everything is in really nice shape. The gun has literally never been used.

Anyone have any idea of value ? I'm guessing it would be worthwhile selling the games as a separate lot, rather than bundled with the computer?

The only thing missing is the RF lead. He has plugged it in today though and loaded a game blind.

It’s worth what people will pay, I sold a fault +3 with disc drive for £150 so your probably looking at £180 for that with games, beware though some games are worth a small fortune, I’ve not looked at them.

Anyone know if any of the games are worth much individually?

I'm thinking it's probably best to whack the games on ebay as a bundle and to sell the computer separately on there.

It's all gonna be sold soon one way or another, so feel free to make an offer if you want to.

I sold all my speccy games/apps as an auction bundle on ebay (got about £120 quid, I think). That way they should sell for basically what they're worth. If people start asking you to sell them a particular individual game, it might be a gem. You can always check past listings to see what individual games sold for.

I'd jump at that if I knew I could hook it up to my PVM easily enough :)

It's got RGB output so I would imagine that it's possible

Sell the Ultimate games seperately.

------------- IS a good game, but it needs more cowboys...

Get one of" rel="nofollow - these  and then plug it into one of" rel="nofollow - these . It has the added bonus of basically adding a scart socket to your pvm. Smile

I have a BNC to SCART converter, it's essential for a PVM - but thanks for the speccy link.

This was the model I had as a kid - my first computer aged 5.  Would love to have one again.

I don't have a spare £200 kicking about this week unfortunately unless he's open to juicy trades?

No idea on price but there's some great games there.

Quick check in on this - if it's still around please get / share some close up pics of the main Spectrum ZX+2 computer so I can see what kind of condition it's all in.  

When you say owned from new - does that mean it's been played since the 80s and covered in dust between the keys, or does it mean it's been barely used etc? :)
