    You are wrong. For reasons that should be obvious, sealed collectors do not care about whether a game is functional; only its appearance matters. Lithium coin cells contain so little electrolyte (no more than approximately 0.3896 mL according to my calculations) that there is no chance of acid finding its way to the box.

    If it's something you've been looking for and it's a good price, I would go for it. In my experience, the small, disc-like batteries that games like that use don't leak like a AA would. It might even still be functional. I recently found an old LCD game I thought I'd lost years ago and the battery inside is apparently still good, so ya never know.

    Yes and no. Although button cell batteries are made to last a very long time, the battery inside a digimon game has probably already died. Since it's not likely that the sealed copies that exist today will be played anymore, that isn't much of a problem. I have never had experience with leaking button cell batteries myself, I know they will last quite some time, but yes, eventually the battery itself will slowly corrode away. Although I doubt it would cause visible damage to the box.

    Please name your threads correctly, L O L? is pretty stupid and useless, yet it seems like a good thread. Im also wondering if my sealed nes action set should be opened and should people start to open new systems and do recaps? sealed opened once to fix potential/near future issues is better than new and corroded motherboards. Will new systems drop in price in 20 years because of these problems?

    Probably not because the people foolish enough to pay huge sums of money for something untouched put all the value into knowing it was never turned on and the box was never opened up (or unsealed and then opened up.) The value is in the fact it is as it was from the time it was removed from the shipping box/crate it came in. It could be a toxic hot mess in there with weird acidic fumes or some other health hazard, but if it's still sealed and not leaked through the box to be detectable the value is there.

    Why are you still here, you are a pathetic lowlife scammer who doesn't even have the balls to respond to messages or emails. The only thing worth laughing at is when karma bites you in your ass. I wish you the worst.

    If I got scammed in a trade I would be pissed off also. Especially if he is still nosing around, asking for sealed games.

    He's pissed because if I remember right he scammed him out of a new copy of the old Pokemon Red in trade so he's out that, plus shipping and any insurance on that. I'd be out for blood too.
