    Default NES Earthbound Proto Scam

    Ebay link

    He's calling it Earthbound Zero, which only the rom was called to difrentiate from the SNES one, and he says he paid $200 for it, he also side stepped the question someone left for him, and he obviously put the gold sticker on the back too. I hate auctions like this with a passion. Someone should inform him that you can buy legit reproductions online of this and many more games for $50
    We should email this guy and get him to unknowingly admit that he is a scammer!!


    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    Ebay has been giving me trouble lately, I will wait a few hours and see if it works and then repost it.

    The seller said he bought it on ebay 3 years ago. Its fully possible. But when you see what the seller is selling its clearly that this person is into gaming and know that this isnt a ultra rare game.
