    No... Look's like some store was just being a jerk and tattooed their brand onto it. It's nothing special.

    I bought it used without any game, for about 20€

    But my point is: for what reason this kind of big company printed this sign? is this gbc some kind of reward for employees or someone just printed it in house (but i dont think so - the sign is printed straight without any sign of amateur work)

    It could have been a developer thing... But that's highly unlikely.

    You should keep it safe though; who knows.

    Well, apparently Virgin Megastores sold games and imprinted their old logo and a Pikachu (to attract customers) on a GBC.

    OK, maybe it's not limited but I'm curious about few things:

    1. Why Google finds nothing? It's weird a bit
    2. For what reason this sticker/print was made?
    3. By who? By fan or by company?

    Try to sell it on Ebay for U$S 1000
    Maybe some crazy collectionist wants to buy it at that ridiculous price

    I'd expect it to be the opposite.

    No one would want to buy something with a store's name branded on it. [​IMG]

    I am a serious collector of game boys and would pass on an item like this. It lacks a formal product endorsement. Cool item none the less.
    Below is part of my collection. GBCs being one of my favorite Nintendo Systems.

    I have about six of those. Black/Silver/20th/All Black(JP)/All Silver(JP)/Blue(JP). Micros dominate. Though I am partial to the SP.

    About the same as a DS cost right now. Once the GBA came out the price on the GBCs went down pretty fast.

    Oh wow! I love the clear purple color! I wish I had that color, but I never had the money to buy any Game Boy Color for myself (my mother makes me pay for every system I get, unless it is a gift from someone). I am sure glad that the Game Boy Advance can play Game Boy Color games.

    Still have my Pikachu/Pichu special edition! Looks like the hell got beat out of it though lol.

    That's a neat collection. How long did it take you to get all those?
