    I found this going through some old family video game stuff. It's pretty cool, its a famicom cartridge that plugs into a famicom>nes adapter, and has 31 games, including some popular ones like Super Mario bros and Excitebike, as well as others that weren't released in North America. Was just wondering if anyone else had one or knows about them, I looked on ebay to see what they might go for, but couldn't find any. Looks like this:

    I remember buying a n64 controller at a flea Market that connected to the TV it had 100 games on it, the joystick didn't work the c buttons didnt work the L and R buttons didn't work but there were some cool games on it.

    I believe you don't find those on ebay since I think it's illegal to sell those, but I don't know for sure.
    I don't think they're worth much though since it is, like you say, pirated and all [​IMG]

    You can find this stuff on ebay from time to time. I've picked up some game boy carts like this for $10 to $14. This would be worth more because of the adapter but you really don't know until you put it up for auction. You wouldn't have a problem selling this on ebay.

    Well, yeah it's pirated, but you'd think such an early example of pirating memorabilia would be worth something. I can understand not being able to sell it on ebay though. I also have Faxanadu and Willow with almost perfect condition boxes, and manuals, but they're only selling for like 13-20 bucks on ebay.

    Pliskron, I think I could sell it on ebay, but if they found the auction they'd prolly close it.

    Well, you can't sell multicarts, but some pirate originals fetch HUGE sums of money. Cheetahmen II and Action 52 are good examples. There's also a lot of chinese pirates that sell quite well (like fake ports of Sonic 1 to the NES)

    The multicart and the game converter are both made in Taiwan, which is kinda China.

    No one is going to bother you for selling an old multi cart on ebay. I see them all the time.

    I have actually played the US NES version of that cart, it didn't need any adapter.

    My suspicion is that some one in your family may have picked that up on a vacation?

    If you where heavy into NES ROM's back a while you could find even those dumps (maybe you still can?)

    I might have that one on an old hard drive somewhere....

    As far as I know they got up to like 100 in 1 or some crazy thing like that.

    There's a NES Flashcart that uses CompactFlash cards (NES Powerpak I believe its called) which could fill your desire for a mutlicart but you're probably after it for the Nostalgia value

    They're usually the same 10, 20 or 30 games repeated a few times.

    I remember seeing them a long tima ago and playing their demo at a flee market for around 150$. My cousin got one from Chinatown probably cheaper and it works quite good and worked perfectly. It came with a snes looking controller and a light gun. There is also a slot on the back of the controller but had no clue what it was back then, I though it was just a game cartridge slot. This was a long time ago though. It was loaded with Nes games. Nes on a chip technology.

    This product was called Power Player Super Joy III
