    That is very much for real. I think there was something on Kotaku about it.

    That is one of the rarest NES games along with the NWC carts, silver and gold.

    Sealed...damn $40K.

    I don't have anything THAT rare except a Lolo 3 beta.

    The thing to do is get a launch console, don't open it ever ever for years then sell it. Big money then.

    All depends on the console really. I've seen sealed N64's go for as little as 40 or 50 quid recently and SNES's for around 100. Emulators and graphic whores have caused a serious dip in the retro market. People who were buying them for nostalgia before are just using emulators now, so the only people really collecting are collectors. Rarities, betas and protos are the only things that sell for any real decent dosh at the mo. Damn emulators! [​IMG]
