    Default Nes proto? Or Homebrew game?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll..._promot_widget

    I have no idea what this is, there is no listing for it in the rarity guide. Any information for this out there?

    A quick search anywhere will tell you its a homebrew game that was put into an NES cartridge.

    Try this and save 25 bucks:

    It's a hack but you can get one, it's not a proto by any stretch.

    I understand that you have to word things carefully so Ebay won't pull the auction but why do people have to put misleading crap like this in their descriptions:

    There is no label on the cartridge, there was a little sticker with the title written in pen but i removed it

    People are so shady.

    To make money of course!
    I bookmarked that site and it's always tempting to get one made. oooh yeah, FF2, in english...
    Ebay would yank it off because it is a reproduction. That hack needs to be pulled.

    The seller probably made it themselves (since there's no label). The game is worth only 25$. There was never a prototype of it; it's a fan based hack of the original Zelda.

    Is this legal?
    Game reproductions of commercially available games is illegal. But these games were never commercially released in North America! As such, no profits are taken away from any individual, company or corporation.
    the game will look the same as a commercially sold ones
    Hmmm ok. I understand where it's going but some of the wording is confusing and the download the ROM you want and email it to him to burn to a chip, how does that keep people from NOT getting commerically released ones. All the client has to do is slip a few extra bucks or have something going with this reproducer to get the commerical releases.


    About the eBay listing, screw it. You're better off dealing with a fellow DPer than some random eBay seller trying to make a buck off a game, for all you know it's Football or Golf without a label!

    There are very few NES games that are worth more than $25 + bribe money in a cart only form. And I think leonk would take much offense if you're implying he'd repro a stadium events or NWC. Actually I remember a thread around here with that debate and it wasn't pretty.

    Cheesy on the repos
    Youre right on the 25+ dollar carts, very few of them. Find a DP'er in Buying and selling, there's handful that can do it for 25 or even less. I know of one but forgot his name...
    My father in law is a rpg nut, I am looking into the FF2 repo for him.

    I'm a collector first. I've been a DP member since its ezboard days! (which is a heck of a lot longer than I was selling reproductions).

    I will never EVER sell reproductions of games that were commercially available. I always get requests for games like Stadium Events, but I always turn them down. I don't even have Stadium Events, nor am I going to reproduce it for myself! It's not the same.

    I only reproduce games that never came out, and people want to play them on their system.

    .end of story.
