    What the fuck Capcom! Here you go creating one of the most bad ass game cases I've ever seen and it's not going to be release to the public in (at least) limited quantities? I think they did this just to tease and taunt us, it's working.

    Good job Capcom, I knew you still had it in you.

    That's absolutely brilliant.

    If they're scarse expect to pay hundreds for these on eBay ...

    I'm rarely a conspiracy theorist but you think they would intentionally produce 400 and only sell 200 so they can then trickle the extra 200 on Ebay and reap the rewards?

    Hell, with only 200 I'd bet they'd all get snatched up by Capcom employees before they even made it to the public.

    The last time this happened(to my knowledge) was when Sega was set to rerelease a second printing on Rez on the PS2. Official Playstation Magazine reported it was coming but almost a year passed with no rerelease. Then after someone wrote in to the letters section of the magazine about what happened, the magazine said Sega had sold every copy of the rerelease second printing of Rez on ebay. I was a bit shocked that they did this. But what better way to guarantee every copy gets sold out and at no less than retail price? Kind of a smart move if you ask me, but not a very fan-friendly one.

    I'd be more interested if that disc had a game on it, instead of extra artwork.

    The NES cart itself is awesome though.

    while this is cool and all, I do understand why they're only makeing 200 or so. You guys gotta step into other people's shoes. We, on this board, are some of the hardest of the hardcore when it comes to gaming and collecting.

    In an age when Wii Play is still one of the best selling console games, I doubt many people are gonna care about retro themed game packaging that basically serves no other purpose than to look nice.

    Yes, just about every person on this board, and others like it would buy that thing at once, but we represent a very small percentage of the gaming community.

    I can assure you that our percentage is MUCH more than 200 people.

    I still think 200 would barely make it out the door. Even if we did reload the page every 2 seconds for the next week, I'd imagine that somehow these 200 would be sold before they even went up for sale. Seriously. Unless you work at Capcom you're not getting this outside of Ebay. That saddens me. Not because we can't have it but because it's a tease. If they said "yeah, press only" then so be it. But for them to say "yeah, for public sale but you can't have one" it makes me a sad tiger. Though 200 is better than nothing. So no reason to be ungrateful.

    I'm not even a huge memorabilia kind of guy but this is something I genuinely want. If only because it's the closest thing I could get to an official hard copy of what is without a doubt my #1 most anticipated game of 2008.

    And, yes, that item is damn sweet.


    ive read this before, but where was it actually confirmed? link?

    I don't have a link but someone at Capcom (might have been Inafune himself) confirmed that they don't even have NES dev kits anymore. So there are two ways someone could get this game on an NES cart. One, they build a bootleg Mega Man 9 from scratch. Or two, they just dump Mega Man 9 as it is onto a rom chip and stick it in an NES cart. It won't play of course but it will technically be Mega Man 9 in a cart.

    Fully confirmed by Capcom and the game's producer.

    It never made sense to develop it on NES development kits, it was just just a unrealistic wish among MM fans because it would've been very cool if true.

    But they're not going to throw programmers into a project working with hardware they've most likely never touched on development kits that haven't been used in 15 years(that probably would have to be reacquired anyways at places like Digital Press and eBay); and expect those people to reverse engineer the NES Mega Man source code across 6 titles and produce something in a programming environment they're clueless about that comes anywhere close to what experts did 15 years ago with hardware they'd been working with for the better part of a decade that they knew inside and out.

    Especially not when the style and gameplay is easily enough replicated in modern ways in a programming environment they're familiar with at a far cheaper cost and using far fewer resources comparatively than the NES projects, which were major undetakings for Capcom then. And I'm sure this way is probably quicker and needs less manpower (Maybe, I have no way to know that last part).

    Not to mention the added cost of developing emulators to accurately reproduce a NES title across three different platforms As far as I know, that's something Capcom has never developed, they used a free GBA NES emulator on their Capcom Mini Mix and the Mega Man Anniversay Collection was done outside Capcom and were ports of Playstation era ports (No emulation of the NES code involved), and they're not going to have access to Nintendo's VC emulator to produce this title across all three platforms like someone suggested in a earlier thread.

    yes, I realize that. what I was getting at is that if they made 10,000 of these they probably wouldn't sell out.

    I don't think any of us are asking for 10,000. 1,000 would be fine and even then I'm sure a bunch of people would get left in the cold. But 200 would not last 5 minutes. At that point, you'd just have to be lucky enough to load up the Capcom Store's website at the moment they put it up for sale. Just for reference, the Capcom employee who spilled the beans on his blog has, at this moment, 256 responses, most of which are people just saying how they want one. And the vast majority of the posts are one offs. Meaning there are already over 200 people just on the blog who want one. What most of them are saying is sort of true. If they do only sell 200 that will do nothing except pad the pockets of Ebay profiteers.

    I would say I want this thing so so bad, but at this point, what's the point?
    I'll never own it.....and that makes me sad.

    I've talked to someone in the industry who has played the game who tell me there is no way the game could run on the NES or an emulator because there are cut-scenes that appear SNES-quality in color. Other than that though, he couldn't tell that it wasn't an NES game.
