    I don't know.....the pics are kind of dark, but they look real to me. If they ARE fake, they are some very good ones.

    Things that make them fake:
    1. No Nintendo "Only for" logo on the boxes (SMB has a Sega one?)
    2. The "Gameboy Advance" logo on the side isn't the correct size.
    3. SMB should have a THQ logo where the Sega one is...

    Yup, he's right, the SMBJR is possibly fake. I unfortunatly have the crappy game. Also, if you look through the Nintendo sticker, there's no Official Nintendo Seal of Quality, and I also think there's not ESRB rating under there too.

    Good eye Querjek, I never would have caught that.

    My question is, does the UK have ESRB? I thought that was a US only institution.

    If not that, would explain the lack of the logos.

    I guess you're right.....still, it would take a good eye to spot all that.

    Were some of those games not released in Europe?

    And even if they are pirates, I guess as long as they play perfectly.

    What's the asking price, 30 pounds? That's about $45, right? I guess that's too much for pirates.....
