Hello everyone,

Sorry if this belongs in 'Prototype Central'. I thought id give it a go in Video Gaming first..

Anyway, does anybody have a complete list of which 'Not for Resale' DS carts exist? You know the kind which would be in shop display pods and such..

I know theres a Yoshi Touch N Go! cart (I believe pookninja has one) Which I would be more than interested in buying from him. :P

Im trying to keep a list of everything DS related and I've got every US, European and Japanese release documented, so I thought i'd go for Misc. bits and bobs..

Anyway, any information would be appreciated and added pictures would be fantastic.

Thanks,

Joe. :)

Well, I've seen Super Mario 64 DS and Wario Ware:Touched Demos. That is the only 2 US releases I know of, although I'm sure Nintendogs will get a demo.

Nintendogs has a demo... I just played it yesterday :)

I have also witnessed a Meteos, Polarium, Pac Pix, Feel the Magic, and Kirby Canvas Curse demos. And yes, they were demos, not full games (the title screens always said "demo version" on them somewhere)

Project Rub (Europe Multi 6) (http://home.arcor.de/mattyxb/Website/rare/NDS-ProjectRub-Demo.jpg)
Super Mario 64 DS (USA) (http://home.arcor.de/mattyxb/Website/rare/NDS-SuperMario64DSbig-Demo.jpg)

For the most part in EB Games and Gamestop, though Kirby only showed up in Best Buy and Wal-Mart (which was useless, because the little kiddies had already destroyed the touch screen). Kirby seemed to only have the tutorial mode in place, while the other games were limited to a standard one player mode. Nintendogs had a five minute time limit to play with three different dogs.

would these be considered rare because of the not for resale sticker?

No, these are all Not for Resale, sorry. And I have no doubles, all a bit different, other Lable, Manual or Box. All are for my own collection. I collect Rare Videogames. So I am happy, that I get so much different Demos for the DS.


would these be considered rare because of the not for resale sticker?
Sure these are Rare. I have found only one Super Mario 64 DS on eBay since month with this Not For Resale text. And its no sticker, its printed on the lable. And the game is too different, because its only a Demo. Never found another one from this game yet. And many other Demos from the DS too Rare.
Common is only the Metroid Demo, because it was sold with the DS. The Wario Ware Touched! Demo is too common, because it was sold with the VIP Pak in Europe through the Nintendo Star Catalog.
The second Wario Demo which I get soon, is much Rarer, because its a different lable and the seller told me its from the Game Convention.
Project Rub is too very Rare, but I have see 2 on eBay since month. So maybe it a bit easier to find. Not sure, maybe it was only luck that a second appear on eBay.

Nice. Is this an USA or European Version?
I have see in a store an European Version. This contains only 2 playable Stages. One where you fly/fall down and collect items and the other where you walk. And it contain too some movies from the gameplay. I think it was too 2 differents, but not sure anymore.

And when you like to sell it, tell me. :D

No, not me. I still trying to get my first Super Nintendo Prototypes. I hope they arrive soon. :-P

And I have never see a Prototype for the Nintendo DS yet. So maybe there exist no more Prototypes? Maybe Nintendo has stop to produce Prototypes, because noone has send them back?
Or they send them now only to people, who send them back to Nintendo, so noone will ever get one again. ;)

I've practically begged the Nintendo Rep for the demo carts whenever he comes to my store to change them out... no go though. He says that Nintendo requires them back and he's accountable for them. Doesn't mean I'm going to stop asking. LOL

I own a Super Mario 64 DS DEMO from USA.
But I think they used here in germany too sometimes USA Demos. This one for example. Other Demos are European Demos, but Super Mario 64 DS is always an USA Demo in stores here in germany when I not wrong.

By me it was luck. I found it on eBay together with a Nintendo DS. I already own a Nintendo DS, so the price was to high for me with Nintendo DS together. I write an E-Mail to the winner from this auction and offer 50,- Euro for the Super Mario 64 DS Demo. I write him, that I collect Demos and Special Videogames. So when he don't like Demos he can buy the Full Version from this game with my 50,- Euro.
The winner write back, that his son must first test the Demo and see if he like it. After he get it and test it he write me back, that his son don't like this Demo (maybe, because it plays only 10 minutes and reset then to the titlescreen and you can't save). So he has sell it to me for 50,- Euro.
First I have think its a bit to much and maybe I would get it cheaper, when I offer less then this. But as collector I have think better a good offer which is to high, then a bad offer and never get this one.
But now after read in more Boards and look on eBay often I think it was a great deal. Never found any other on eBay yet.

Do you still own both? Will you maybe sell one?
I am interested on this one.


Here where I got my Demos if not from eBay:
PS2 Demos: official PS2 Demo Site, only for germany
or from the Game Convention in Leipzig

GameCube Demos: some from MakroMarkt which is now closed, so I will never get them outside from eBay again I think. Was the only store which I found and who give them away.

Nah-uh!! Toys R Us got the Kirby Canvas Curse demo too!!
*phllbt!* LOL
For demos for the DS, my store has gotten:
Super Mario 65 DS
Metroid Prime: Hunters
WarioWare Touched
Kirby Canvas Curse
Yoshi's Touch n Go
Nintendogs

That's all I can remember. There had to have been at least one other.
But yeah, if my Nintendo rep Geoff were allowed to give those things out, I'd be the first to get them because he spoils me (much to the envy of my boyfriend who works at the GameStop down the street which is also serviced by Geoff!)He gave me a free Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (full retail version, a $40 game...FREE), the GC kiosk demo disc last time he changed the disc (which is weird cuz I thought he needed to return those too) and a Nintendogs plush when they were reserved specifically for GameStop management (but me and 2 other TRU employees got our own and my bf's GameStop got ONE for the WHOLE STORE!!!! Who's the favorite??!) I'm not supposed to brag about that anymore, otherwise he won't be able to give me any more swag. To that, I replied, "What's the point of getting such cool swag if I can't brag about it?" Swag Bragging...it's a right, not a priveledge. LOL

Ah, thanks very much for the info.. Where did you see them and did they sale 'Not for Resale' on the cart?

Sorry for all the questions,

Joe. :)


Basically any game that was in the Kiosk DS system in any store is a "not for resale" demo copy. and they are hard to come by because Nintendo keeps them under wraps, but I am sure there are employees or ex-employees of big N that are willing to dump a few on ebay for some cash.

Anyway, in the past few months since I started this thread, I've managed to pick up:

Super Mario 64 USA Not For Resale - 11 Ebay UK
Wario Ware VIP Europe Demo - 4 Ebay UK
Nintendogs Europe Not For Resale - 15 Ebay UK

Anybody else got any new DS Demo news. I've noticed a few new DS collectors around the board, noticably Drexel who outbid me on a Nintendogs relay cart. Bastard :-P

Anyhoo, apparently the boxes of the games that come bundled with DSs (such as Mario Kart) say NFRS on the box, not sure about the cart. Bare this in mind, because its a full game and not a demo, so not as cool!

it's to do with european safety standards. all electrical products must have this on it, as it is a mark to show that the equipment will not have interfear with other electrical devices.

Got some new Demos since my last post here.

Mario Kart DS (U) [DIS-NTR-A39E-USA]
Nintendogs (E-M6) [DIS-NTR-A36P-EUR]
Yoshi Touch & Go (E-M5) [DIS-NTR-A27p-EUR]

USA Demos:
Kirby Canvas Curse (U) [DIS-NTR-A32E-USA]
Pac-Pix (U) [DIS-NTR-A29E-USA]

USA Special Cartridge:
Nintendogs Download/Relay Version (U) [NTR-AD4E-USA]

I already post about a Nintendogs (E) Demo in the past. But this one is different. My old first one was only in english. The new is Multilanguage and contain 6 languages. The old one was the same as the USA Version.

Got too a Metroid Prime Pinball (U) Promo cartridge. But this is a full game. The cartridge has only the Not For Resale sticker on the back, but seems the same game.

And I won for some days a Mario and Luigi Partners in Time (E) Demo and hope that it arrive soon. [DIS-NTR-A58P-EUR]

That is incorrect. I have the Mario Kart DS Bundle and the paper sleeve with the game doesn't say NFRS on it. Neither does the cart.

it's the full game, just used for demonstration purposes. the GDC copy of brain age has the exact same sticker on the back.

it's all about the product code... if the product code is the same as the full version, then the content is the same... if the code is different, then the content is different. that simple.
