    There was a guy for a couple years who was selling CIB GBA bootlegs at a local flea market I go to. I bought a fire emblem game off him but after further inspection I found that

    1. The box art looked a little fuzzy, like a bad print.
    2. The box itself was slighlty larger than any other GBA box
    3. The folds in the box were different
    4. All CIB GBA games were $8 a piece (ones that would normally cost $20+)

    The only bootlegs that are would be worthwhile to me are the 128 in 1 carts.

    some of the box art for the games he had for sale weren't even the right pics, and also for the ESRB rating, some would have "RP" (rating pending) on them. Not a very good bootleg.

    That's why you buy in bulk. 5 bucks here and there to turn into 100s.

    It's too late now, but I did create this video on how to spot fake GBA games:

    You've missed my point. I need to make 100+ PER TRANSACTION in order for it to be worth it to me. Buying lots and breaking them up is the absolute last thing that I ever want to do. All the taking pics, writing up descriptions, answering questions, packing items up, taking them to the post office takes tons of time. I've done the math, and it's simply not worth MY time to do all that crap

    If I was just quickly glancing at those I might have thought they were real too. I grab Pokemon games when ever I see them because they are really easy money. They kind of remind me of Final Fantasy 7 a few years ago. Despite there being millions of copies of each out there people will still pay $20-$30 for each one....used.

    To you or me it may be pretty obvious, but to 95% of the people buying these (and a good fraction of those reselling them), it's not.
