    Default WTB: NES-FAMICOM converter

    Here is my problem, I live in Canada and want to play my Famicom stuff right on my NES. I know converters exist to do such a thing...I want to by one off you. But I am also willing to settle for a Famiclone system of some sort. PM me, as I'm not on-line that much thanks.

    I believe there is a game that comes with one preinstalled in the cart itself. I forget the name, but it starts with a "G" (Golomite?) I think. Probably cheaper than buying a converter straight up.

    Gyromite, and while only some of them have one, when one's confirmed to have a convertor, it tends to go for the price of a normal convertor.

    I have a famiclone if you'd like one, PMing you now.

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    Yeah I heard that some early Famicom stuff has converters in them, but yeah like you said, only some and they are hard to come by.

    "Wrecking Crew" also has a converter inside it.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    a loose copy of stackup always has the converter, and the game is cheap by itself might want to check on ebay before over paying for a converter.

    the only real catch is you might have to sand the edges down a bit on the converter for some famicom games, i've been using mine for years and have had zero problems with it.

    I have had a surprising # of offers, thanks guys, but I have secured one. I guess MODS lock up this thread?
