    The game is the only known NES Proto. It literally is the launch of the Zelda franchise, that's why it's so special. The game itself as far as I know is not materially any different. Imagine the Dev team working on this item at NOA. That is pretty special IMO. I'll get the vid up for you.
     
  2. So it's not factory sealed anymore?
    Unless I missed something...

    Me? How so? Now I'm a thief, wow.

    To clarify pingouin I'm selling the proto along with the Factory Sealed version. The actual Proto is still playable.

    according to the seller (on another forum) he got a legit offer of $25,000 and turned it down.

    I don't think he truly expects to get the $150,000 he has on there. Only things that are worth that much is all four NES/SNES competition carts (NWC 1990, NCC 1991, NCC 1992 and Powerfest 1994) but even then three of them you can get in reproduction form :)

    I think he means the only known NES proto of Zelda.

    that very comment has been debated among the prototype community for 20+ years. we have seen carts with dumps sell for just as much as carts without dumps. its all in the eye of the beholder. for some the dump of the rom is more valuable than the cart, for collectors the physical cart is more valuable than the media. there is also a set of collectors that want only un-dumped carts, raising their value, so that they can be the one to dump the rom. sometimes those protytype roms sell for more than the physical carts.

    that is simply untrue. bio force ape, lethal weapon, action 52, earthbound, flinstones, a boy and his blob, sunman, adventures in the magic kingdom, TMNT II, and others. i do believe that hoppin mad was found to be a legit proto as well. there are many others, mostly PAL for some odd reason, which have surfaced over the years. not to mention a few FDS protos, on the disk.

    There's an Action 52 Proto? Does it have less generic space shooters?

    Plus, there was a Zelda no Densetsu prototype dumped. There's an article on it on TCRF.

    Are you speaking about Zelda? If so, no that is not true, there is a test cart with the yellow casing which uses the typical Zelda NES label. That however is not a Proto PCB, it is a retail PCB. Several posts ago I admitted I misstyped and mistakenly wrote this was "the only NES proto" when it should have read it is "the only NES Zelda Proto."

    There are hundreds of NES protos, I've owned many of them...

    He meant an original charizard. That's not even the original pokemon card style, they've changed it a few times since the original.
