    Post Interest Check: Nintendo NES M8 Demo Unit

    Okay, here we go:

    I am thinking about selling my beloved Nintendo M8 Demo Unit. This is not something that I really want to do, but I've got a major unforeseen expense that I will soon need to pay off. I am likely going to have to put it on eBay and try to get top dollar, but I absolutely hate dealing with the shitty unreliable eBay buyers and greedy ass PayPal. Anyway, so here's your chance...

    This M8 Demo Unit was found (by me) at a Flea Market in Clearwater, FL a year or so ago, and it is in great working and cosmetic condition. The M8 is not as cool as the M82 units, but it is arguably more difficult to find. I hate to use the word "rare", but I think it's pretty fitting in this case.

    Basically, the unit plugs into a TV and has 15 of the original Black Box games programmed into the hardware with a button that you can push to select the game you would like to play. The games include: Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley, Wild Gunman, Balloon Fight, Ice Climber, Kung-Fu, Pinball, SMB, Baseball, Golf, Tennis, Excitbike, Mach Rider, Wrecking Crew, and Popeye. Two controllers and a Zapper gun are wired into the unit as well. Each game has been tested as well as both controllers and Zapper gun. Everything works great.

    The unit has both RF and AV outputs on the back. I noticed that the AV outputs were a little touchy. Both fuses are in great shape as well. It has been modified for unlimited play.

    *If you would like to make a serious offer, please feel free to do so via PM or in this thread. Unless I get a offer that I really like, the unit will likely end up on eBay sometime next week.

    **I will accept US postal money orders, personal checks (it will have to clear of course), or cashier's checks. Sorry, but no PayPal on this one, unless you plan to pay for the fees.

    Thanks for looking, and feel free to axe me any questions that you may have. :-)

    Wow, haven't seen one of those since my childhood when I'd play them in the stores. Very cool find, too bad you have to part with it.

    I have been told that these particular models were used in Toys R Us. Do you remember which store(s) you saw this in when you were a kid?

    so odd... I'm a little too young to have ever seen one of these in person, but that's really cool!

    If you do sell on ebay, make money orders your only acceptable form of payment. That way you won't lose out on any paypal fees.

    I think I know someone in Nigeria who would probably be willing to send a money order for that...you'd have to send him back the extra though as he tends to make out his money orders for more than the total price.

    I, perhaps being the only one, disagree. The M8 looks a hell of a lot nicer than the M82, and it's probably easier to find one in great condition since it never had to be opened up and fumbled around with. M82s are big ugly boxes! The M8 has a sleek angle to it!

    If I wanted to play whatever NES games I wanted, I'd play on my NES! And if I didn't just blow $300 on arcade hardware I'd have some more cash to maybe make an offer... if I was interested in blowing nearly $1,000 on cool hardware with a sleek angle

    Well he can limit it to certain countries such as the US, Canada and Europe. Then again, theres shady ass people all over this planet. But the money order scam is the most obvious to get around following three easy steps. First, make sure it's a "real" money order. Second, make sure it's for the "correct" amount. And finally, wait a week or so until it actually "clears" in your bank account. Once these three things are accomplished you are on your way to scam-free heaven

    I have no intention in dealing with anyone from Nigeria.

    I would likely ship to Canada, but that's about it.

    This item will ship UPS with tracking and insurance. No USPS.
