    Default Capcom Hyping Ducktales Remake w/ Gold NES Carts!

    Oh, man.

    Get ready for a collectors' shitstorm.

    Youtube Video of the coveted gold cart.

    Coolest part other than the ad for "Other great Capcom games" -- on the back of the cart, where it warns about extreme temperatures, etc... Final warning: "Life is like a hurricane."

    Yes, because then you'd be breaking up a very limited set!

    If you end up getting the set, give me the gold cart. I'll give you $20.

    Apparently the game IS playable, too.

    The gaming "press" is bought off by shit like this, while the people who actually spend the money on the games don't have access other than buying from the press members who resell it on ebay.

    Nice secondary income source.

    A comment on that youtube page says it does, I'm not sure if that's correct though. Does this mean that Capcom still has NES manufacturing equipment?

    If your average joe homebrewer can manufacture a small run of NES cartridges I'm sure Capcom can too.

    Or they bought 150 carts off eBay and placed the boards inside new carts.

    But they're gold carts, I'm not sure if they painted old carts or made new plastic shells in this new colour with correct equipment. If they were grey I'd just think they bought old Duck Tales carts and changed the labels.

    They could've also disassembled the carts and painted the outside gold for all we know. :P

    They look painted. My guess is either they still had old NES shells in the warehouse that they painted or they just bought donors to paint. Not really worth getting molds made for a run for only 150 carts. Still cool to see something official from Capcom, its a shame they are used to basically buy off reviewers though. I would rather see them in the hands of actual customers.

    They're painted. Injection molded gold plastic doesn't look like that. In fact, it looks like shit about 90% of the time. The parts end up looking like a swirled, 2-flavor cake. This is why you almost never see actual gold plastic used in much of anything aside from kids toys.

    Also, the tooling for the original NES shells would be long gone. Injection molding tools aren't kept around forever. They use a LOT of steel, which is valuable and infinitely recyclable (not to mention that the tooling takes up a lot of space), so they don't hang around too long after production ends. There are some repro companies that have their own shells produced. I wouldn't be too shocked if Capcom employed one of these companies to acquire the parts for this. Beats the hell out of buying a ~$10K set of injection mold tools to make 150 cart shells.

    I'd also wager that they used a process known as vacuum deposition to apply the finish. Far more durable that wet paint in this application, and incredibly thin, which means pretty much zero loss of any details in the form. If you need a reference, the GBA SP was finished using this process.

    I thought they'd just buy 150 copies of the Legend of Zelda 1 or 2 and replace the label (what actually comes up if you try to play it in an NES? DuckTales? Okay, swap 150 PCBs).

    I'm going to quote the rapper Notes on one of his dis tracks because it's appropriate here. "walkin' around town with a can of gold spray paint claimin' you famous"

    It's exactly what they're doing here. Reviewers being given gold painted copies of a game claiming they're special.

    How were people supposed to even acquire these things if they weren't told about it ahead of time?

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    In fairness, every publisher does similar things with every major and sometimes not so major release. It's a way of getting media outlets excited about your product and giving them something unique and cool is a great way to do it. Think about how much publicity this has generated just today on many, many gaming websites. It's a lot of buzz for the game with very little expenditure or effort.
