    So I just stumbled upon this Seiken Densetsu 3 (Secret of Mana 2) Cartridge, It has the sticker and it's modified with the English patch.

    The seller is asking 45 EUR (62 Dollars) for it. My question is: I really like the game, I tried it and it's lovely. But, do you think it's worth the price? Should I buy it ASAP or try to settle down on a lower price with the seller?

    You could almost buy a Super UFO 8 (Flashcard for SNES) for that much.

    It's up to you, if you're a collector and you like to have single games in your collection, buy it - if not, go for a Flashcard :)

    If you really want it, it's worth it.

    The game is not an official cart, but you probably already knew that.

    But a quick check around on the net and the best price I could find was pretty close to that.

    My personal opinion is that if your a collector it's going to be a pretty rare cart in one sense but the problem is that at any point in time the seller can make more if the price went up so it's not an investment for $$$. To me it would be for a 100% complete collection. But if your just wanting to play the game? I would save my money and use an emulator.

    Still pretty cool thought that some one is going through the effort to make these things for the hardcore collectors.

    Edit: I agree with Raulpica, get one of those cool flash carts. I have always been thinking about getting one myself then I think "well I have these hacked Wii's..."

    Hell, I totally would, but I live in Romania and Ebay or Amazon and other shippings from outside the country are not an option, for the money that I'll pay on the shipping from something from US or UK I could get this cart. I usually do love owning and playing great games (I'm still hunting for a Link to the Past cartridge to play the game, never did it on an emulator), so I'll see if I can get the price somewhat lower and I might buy it. This guy also has Megaman & Bass, BS Zelda and some other interesting modified carts.

    IIRC on eBay there's a guy shipping from Spain, so you shouldn't pay absurd shipping fees for that.
