    I read this on Kotaku this morning. How f'ing cool is that? Capcom is really showing some vintage NES love as of late.

    Oh boy... I don't even want to know how feverish collectors are going to get over these things press-only with ~200 avaliable at the Capcom store? heh.

    Though this throw-back/retro packaging was pseudo-predicted towards the middle/end of the other MM9 thread.

    edit: gah, I can't find the exact place in the thread, but there was some fun hypothesizing about this happening (though I think some were hoping for a working-NES cart). However, with the realization that this would be impossible/difficult, I kind of assumed it wouldn't happen. But here we are

    Very nice! 200 is pretty low. They could put it at 1000 and still sell out quickly.

    So why not make 10,000-100,000? It would be so much more money for them. I thought the point of being a successful business was to make money for your company and your investors. I'm tired of fighting over limited edition promos with my fellow collectors when the real culprit for this is the big companies themselves.

    Now that I'm done ranting I have to admit that this package looks very cool. I want one....or five

    disappointment. that is cool as well, but I thought 200 was going to be a promo for how many m$ points that game would cost.

    I hope someone rips the rom so nes reproductions can make me a megaman 9 cart that would rock pretty damned hard haha. Hopefully its a true nes rom and not just made to look similar though i wouldnt put it past them as i saw a massive multisprite enemy that didnt appear to be flickering.

    It's already been confirmed that it's not written in NES code so the only conceivable way you'd see Mega Man 9 running on NES hardware is if someone took on the massive task of writing an NES bootleg of the game from scratch.

    And, yes, that item is damn sweet.

    I absolutely agree. It's awesome Capcom captured a moment of our childhood and transposed it for this promo. Seriously, why are they making 200? Do they think no one cares for the Blue Bomber anymore? That's bullsh!t. Any fan of Megaman worth his salt will love to get their hands on this.

    Echoing the comments about it being limited to 200 as a terrible idea. I'd love to get my hands on one of these, but I know they'll be instantly sold out the moment they're put up for sale. The sad part is that many of them will most likely be put on eBay for jacked up prices.

    Damn, that's cool. I'm not even a fan of Megaman but I'd buy that at $20.

    It's a shame the disc doesn't contain the full game, but this is still very cool. I'm not normally into this sort of stuff, but I'd really like this. Unfortunately, I can see this very limited run fetching a rediculous price on eBay.

    good call, that would be awesome if they at least put the game in the disc. They do it with other xbl live games (Uno and others that I can't remember, bejeweled maybe).

    It's like Capcom actually.......cares......once again.

    Now they just need to sell more of these, that's quite a collectors item.

    We should make a blood pact. We each take shifts doing nothing but pressing the reload button on the Capcom Store website. The second the item comes up for sale whoever sees it orders a copy for everyone who's part of the pact.
