    Default Is this a NES prototype?

    So, for whatever reason I was stumbling around some listings for camerica games and I came across this copy of quattro arcade:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Quattro-Arca...item19cfc55d43

    The listing states the label has "been removed", but I can't help but wonder if it's actually a proto cart, what with that recent final fantasy find...though I honestly have no idea if it is.

    It looks quite different from other camerica protos:

    I'm not a NES proto collector (and I wouldn't even have a NES to test the thing out on) so I have no interest in buying it. As far as it actually being a proto, though, what do you guys think?

    EDIT: I showed it to a few other people I know and someone bought it. I'll be sure to let yall know if there's any changes!

    (Also, if someone buys it and it IS a proto, I humbly request it gets dumped at some point so everyone can play it out and see the differences, though it's only a request.)


    It seems that the label was peeled off .... don't think this is a prototype

    I'm sort of suspecting the same thing, looking at it a bit closer, especially in the bottom right corner. The guy that bought it wants to see for sure if it is or not, but even if it's not at least the game is pretty fun :P

    The only real way to tell is to see the pcb. No pcb pics, no way to tell.

    Its obviously not a prototype, its a crappy game with its label peeled off. It even says sticker art has been removed in the listing. The back is supposed to look like that with the switch.
