Going to Hong Kong - Retro Game Shopping?

by molotovwars Sun Dec 26, 2010 5:30 pm

I'm going to Hong Kong in a few days and was hoping to sort through some games. I know so much stuff on eBay comes out of Hong Kong so I imagine I'd be able to find something, anyone been that can advise or tell me where to look?

I found this thread on CAG:
http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/sho ... p?t=184517

but I couldn't tell if that dealt only with more current game stuff, or if I'd have to look in another place for more retro games. Any help would be great! Thanks!

Last time I went there (2007) I found a lot of Famicom bootlegs and not much else.
