    Default nes demo real or fake?????????

    i would just like to know how u can tell a demo from a fake one. i have a epprom burner i could make one that looks really. i know most of the demo have a bigger pc board. but i have a few nes games that have bigger pc boards. what is stopping me from removing the label from the cart and burn the chips for it and put hand writen labels on the epproms and the carts, and cutting holes where the epproms are??? or what is stopping from doing that with a rare game and just printing the label.???????????????? and making a few hundred dollors on ebay????? i know on the pc board itself has the license number. but other then that how?????
    thanks

    So you want to be told how to do it, so you can do what exactly? be more knowledgeable on the subject????
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    The thing is everyone who asks this or does this always first thing they say or do is how they could replace the roms with EPROMS. So something fake should have EEPROMS. But it's more than that, really you need to have some guy who says he knows more than you do that something is fake and even that is a real shoddy way to go around verifying things.. First you would have to make something and keep it on a low profile < don't go bragging > and then you would go directly to ebay with it making sure it looks real and has EPROMS in it. Just like someone who has something they didn't make up you watch bids go up and up. So what then no one can really say you faked something, yes they can but because it's all inferred conjecture (see uneducated guessing) no matter what they would say there really is no way for them to go back in time and see just how wrong or right or even close to the truth they are.

    The thing is people havn't proven to do this, when something is fake it's always someone playing a joke on friends or when it is a fake it's someone selling earthbound on a NES cart saying they found it at a garage sale and didn't make it themselves and then they pretend to not know anything about NES games.

    That is the reason why I do not want to buy one. I would not know if it was real or a fake.
