I need to get a Ruby version to replace my brother's that has been lost, and Ebay is the cheapest place :/ Didn't realize counterfeit games were that common. I was wondering if someone could give me their opinion on if this game lookes legit or not. Thanks.

Genuine IMO.

There's the stamp (08) on the right side of the label, the label looks perfectly ok, color of the case is correct...

But then it's ebay, they can show you a real one and then send a fake...

Looks legit, and if the auction holder were to send you a fake, he or she would likely just put the cover of the game as the photo to avoid detection. As for the battery, unless the game was grinded to death, it should be just fine. I clocked anywhere between 260 and 300 hours on my Pokemon Yellow (not sure, the clock just stopped after it reached the maximum value) and the game still plays fine. Original cartridges rarely run out of juice, and even when they do, all you really need to fix that is a tri-wing screwdriver and a spare battery.

That said, I too would consider getting a flashcart instead unless you are also getting it for its collection value.

Legit. Its got the transparent plastic housing and metallic label. Both are things any counterfeit would not have bothered including for cost reasons.

As long as that's what they send you, legit. I would still check their feedback just to see if they have a history of being a good seller or not, nonetheless.

    @The Real Jdbye, Had this one kid at my school who was always fascinated with Rubik cubes.

    They used to look up videos as well as use one of those sites which first you input the pattern on what you are stuck on and it will tell you the instructions on how to solve it.

    The smaller Rubik cubes are easier to solve at first.

    Then it must be difficult then.

    from what i heard the technique is the same regardless of size so if you know how to solve one size, then you know how to solve them all

    I was only theorizing about whether this was the case.

    But really, there's a website that lets you solve it fairly easy.
