    There's a 119-in one and a 260-in-one I know for a FACT that had about 100 games in them each. They were small games, mind you. Usually they were every early "black box" Nintendo title (this includes yer action series, sports series, light gun and programmable series). Then they would have every pre-Track and Field Konami game, those which had the old Konami logo that were all arcade ports or really bad games. Then all the early Namco games...etc. See, the point is, you probably can fit 100 commercial games on a NES cart (these were on a Famicom cart) if you put an 8-meg chip in there. They just have to be really small games. Usually the most complex game you would see on those was Super Mario Brothers.

    Ye.. thats what im saying. As i already mentioned, Action 52 have 52 diffrent games in 1, but these games are the worse. So ~100 small and "homemade" games might fit on 1 cartridge, but not 100 commersial games. As you said, the most complex game was Super Mario Bros.

    When you mentioned the 260-in-1 do you know how it look?
    Is it a black cartridge? And on the menu its Adventure Island music and 2 snails that crawls around? I acctualy have this game and i just tried it again.
    It acctualy had alot of diffrent game, most from the black series. There are also so games i never seen before, most likely famicom games or homemade.
    If its over 100 diffrent games im not sure (didnt count), but i would guess its over 50 atleast. The cartridge is also pretty heavy compared to normal NES cartridges.
    So i admit, i didnt know you could fit this much (altho not 100 ) games on 1 cartridge, and it was under my nose all the time hehe

    Damnit.. i have to count all games just to check if its not 100. I might be wrong.

    Ok, tried the games now.. Its 106 diffrent games acctualy! Damn.. didnt know this Altho.. maybe 2-3 are homemade, but still over 100.
    It have games like dr. mario, paperboy, adventure island, puzznic also.
    And super mario bros 1, mario bros, donkey kong 1, 3 and jr, duck hunt, hogans alley, wild gunman, balloon fight, pinball etc etc..
    So i guess its possible to fit over 100 diffrent commersial games Altho.. when i ment commersial game i did have in mind games like Contra, Little Nemo, Turtles, Super Mario Bros 2 etc, games like this.
    But all the games on the 260-in-1 are also commersial, just realy old ones.

    I have many mulitcarts for the NTSC console. I have never tried them on anything but a top-loader though!

    I have them with anywhere from 2 games to 120. On the higher number carts, it usually has about 80 games and then variations of them (faster, garbled, etc.)

    I have an exact copy of that game you have (same listing of games, same menu type), but it's made by ECS (made lot's of boot carts and multi carts)

    Yep, the 260-in-1 has about 100-105 individual, commercial games, although very early ones (SMB, Pinball, Tennis, Baseball, etc. but also plenty of arcade conversions). I found it at a local pawn shop...

    Yes, that's exactly the cart I'm talking about! You may not have heard of a lot of the games on there before because many of them weren't released outside of Japan, and were some of the original slew of third party Famicom titles. And yes, some of them suck, but some of them are really cool (we in America never saw Devil World, for example. That one was a bit too unChristian I suppose. Did anybody notice that the dino in that game is an early Yoshi? He pops out of an egg and has the same sound effect as Yoshi does when he hatches--that game may not be on the 260 in one cart, but it is on others.)

    Are there any multi cartridges that have alot of newer commersial games?
    Yes, tons. There tends to be less games in these; 8 or 11. Sometimes 4 out of the 11 are different variations of Contra (which seems to show up in a LOT of them). As I've mentioned before, I've seen one with Ninja Gaiden III, Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, Adventure Island II, SCAT (called something else in Japan), and Shadow of the Ninja. All of the carts like this that I've come in contact with over the years always have commercial games on them, but never games that used a battery (so, Zelda, Crystalis, or Maniac Mansion are out). Action 52 is just an abomination in general, and doesn't really reflect how cool some of the other multi-carts there are.

    BTW--those of you with access to the 260-in-one Adventure Island hack cart should hunt for a game on there called "Wildball". It's strip rock-paper-scissors, and it's really creepy to see anime porn on the NES. REALLY creepy.

    Hahaha yes, Wildball I played through all 106 games earlier today, just to check if it was 106 diffrent games.
    I got the panties off, but not the bra hehe :P Was too fast at the end.

    You know what i shall search for on Ebay to find the multi NES cartridges with new commersial games? I would realy like to try one.

    Somebody mentioned their multicarts having a B-side...that's kind of how the more advanced carts work (like the ones you're looking for)...you push reset and a new title screen pops up. Crazy!

    In case you didn't know. The "Golden Cassette Series 260-in-1" cart (it's dark grey or black anyway) has a converter inside.

    Yah, I have some 2 in one carts that are like that. One title and then the other when you push reset!

    Also I have some that won't work (white screen) till you push reset! Why? I have no idea.

    I love "Circus Chablie". I used to have some other circus game for NES and I thought it was pretty cool. I loaned it to my friends and they hated it. So, I'm over my friends playing the game and I press up to go inside the circus tents. They have mini games in there. They didn't know you go in them.

    Whoever said most multicarts contain less than 20 games: Most multicarts I see contain more than 20. I've owned a few in my life, but sold them at one time or another. Everyone I've had was more than 20 different games. Most of the cartridges contained the same games, but some of them had one or two different. Somewhere here I might still have my 42 in 1 and I still have my 84 in 1 and might still have a 64 in 1 here.

    The 42 in 1 was mysterious. You turned it on and got 20 in 1, turned it off and on and got 22 in 1.. that's not so mysterious. I know a few carts that do that, but the weird part was.. you know sometimes you don't get the NES cart in right and weird stuff pops up on the screen?! Sometimes I'd get TOTALLY different menus to pop up! Totally different graphics and stuff! Only thing is it was frozen so I couldn't do anything!

    Would have loved to get a ROM dump of the stuff on that cart.

    To be honest, until Hellvin put up this post, I've never seen a multicart in an actual NTSC cart. The only times I saw the multicarts were in Famicom carts brought over from Vietnam, and we used a "Honeybee" converter to play them.

    Did any of you guys actually buy these NES multicarts new? If so, where did you buy them? I never saw them, ever.

    I only hang on to multi's if they are in an NES cart casing. I didn't buy any new, but my 42 in 1 has it's original price tag: $199.00 at a Co-op store (I don't know if these stores exist in the US). Can you imagine paying that much for a NES pirate? In their defence, this cart does have some games that aren't mapper 0 (ie: Adventure Island, Gradius, Goonies, etc) so it's an awesome multi, but still... two hundred bucks!

    I used to have a 191-1 that only had 51 repeats on it. I wish I still had that multi. I believe it was made by Spica.

    I need to get pics of my multis. I have around 10 NES and 20 Fami multis.
    I love you guys, in a no-sexula way.

    Hit me up on Xbox live or if you live in the Toledo area. Always down to play. Live ID: Spoontoss

    booby kids? sounds like something Joe Biden would say
    "It is an obscenity that we stigmatize so many young Americans with a criminal record for smoking marijuana, but not one major Wall Street executive has been prosecuted for causing the near collapse of our entire economy." - Bernie Sanders
