So, it 'appears'. I wouldn't be surprised if Home Leisure Direct still have this available if you gave them a call in a few days time. You might even get it at the same 'bargain' price.LOL 

Well, I did say it earlier, so if anyone is desperate enough they can buy mine for £4,800 cash. I won't hold my breath

Don't get Paperboy not being a good game
 
I think it's one of the Most Inventive and Genius games ever and I think they had some really talented people at Atari to come up with such different and cool games with Humour thrown in for extra fun which was lost on Home Conversions
 
It stood out in Arcades because of the Handle Bars for Controls and the Med Res Gfx it just looked so Crisp at the time, classic Atari sound and speech... what is not to like
 
So many other games are just the same old subject, not saying their rubbish. Space Invaders and then how many others just copied that idea and added a bit to it, Shoot em ups to me are Dull with just bashing button and wiggling joystick, not saying you don't need talent to play them and probably why I find them dull because I am rubbish at them
 
It's good were all different
 
I just think to offer games of completely different Topics like playing Road Runner, who didn't like that Cartoon, Indiana Jones Wiping Thugee in the Mine Cart, then onto 720 with some skateboarding, and then you can be a Paperboy on BMX and onto Toobin riding on inner tube throwing coke cans, that some darn cool games as a kid
 
5K
 
What the hell
 
Should be done for the crap on website saying RRP price and save £1500, idiots

I don't get the hate either, up there with Marbel Madness for sheer innovation with far more playability and excitement.  One of the all time greats!

Sounds like business could be booming for HLD at the moment, according to this article on the BBC News website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52066454 (see paragraph section 2).

I must admit, I also don’t understand that hate for Paperboy. It a unique game and quite fun. I certainly wouldn’t be paying 5k for it though!
