    And now here's an actual genuine NWC cartridge:​

    The colour of the eBay cart doesn't seem to be as golden-y as the one below and the logo seems to be brand new (too good to be true?). I think people who'd bid on this know what they're getting into so they probably know what to expect of it already.​

    I forgot
    Definitely looks fake.

    The real gold NWC cartridges are a glossy gold color, whereas this seems to be some matte-style gold.

    EDIT: And the eBay listing even says the guy isn't sure it's real.

    What a pointless thread.

    Ebay has thousands upon thousands of listings of fake items. They don't need threads.

    Except the NWC get special attention due to how rare they are.

    Repro carts aren't fakes, they're just repros.

    Still pointless to 99.7% of the population.

    That's like saying the knockoff R4 DS chips that aren't made by the original R4 team aren't actually knockoffs.

    The cart is genuine or it's not. If it's not genuine, it's fake.
