You can be sure that if I won the lottery, the first thing I would do would be to submit a news on this website saying : "To anyone who owns a virtual boy prototype cartridge, I offer you to sell it to me. Please, contact me and we'll negotiate the price".
Sorry, I'm a dreamer

The persons who own a never released game HAVE TO dump it or to send it to someone who would be able to ; it's a moral duty towards disappointed players and the development team.
Imagine you spent months creating a game and one day, your boss announces : "It's over. The game is cancelled. Sorry .". How would you feel ? You put a part of yourself in the game, you invested your ideas in the project and you suddenly discover that it was in vain. I'd feel frustrated and even more if one of my collaegues stole the code just for personal profit. The person who dumped Starfox 2 was one of the development team member and he did it because he refused the game to sink into oblivion. Not to dump the game is a lack of respect towards those who made the game (of course, it's the contrary if the game has been marketed )
You can't buy a prototype cart as if you bought a common game, not only because it's much more expensive but above all because it implies heavy responsibilities. Besides, a prototype cart is a piece of the development team soul and a symbol of hope for many players, this is one of the most important thing you have to remember by buying a prototype cart.

But look at Starfox 2 and Earthbound Zero ; they both were private prototypes and now, anybody can dowload them. I suppose it's legal (even if I bought Mother 1 just to have clear conscience ), since they have never been marketed and they really are excellent. Moreover, the owners who dumped the games may have lost their investment but they did won the players' gratitude and are now well-known as heroes of the players community. They reached immortality in the heart of the curent and future generations of players and I'm convinced that it's more valuable than what they paid to got the cartridge.

I don't think that those who blow 400 $ in order to get Virtual Lab want to play the game ; mainly because it's famous for being one of the most botched game ever. If I were to play it, it would only be in order to make sure of that. I believe that it's value comes from the original cartridge's rarity, the double mistake "Nintenndo" and "Ninntenndo" and the lack of password menu. Consequently a ROM would not discrease its value.
However, this theory concers only Virtual Lab and according to what said Fwirt here it's illegal and immoral to dump or download a ROM, except if it's Zero Racers or Bound High or an other prototype, since they have never been marketed. So please, somebody who owns one of the very rare prototypes, dump them

But why ? Now that the FlashBoy has been announced it would be a shame not to take advantage of it to finally play this marvelous game. Don't you agree ? Or maybe you could send a rom to people who'd like to got it, eh ?
