17 games and some crap. Too expensive though.


Space Squash is among the games though...

Thats pretty cheap. A boxed Insmouse is worth like $100 if not more, and Space Squash
is about $50.

Yeah, I saw that already. $3500? Sorry, but that's a bit rich for my blood!

LOL, funny how they tried to tatter the labels to make the fake proto chips look real... and if it's worth so much, they might want to take better care when they pry the chips out of the sockets (the bottom right pin on the second chip down is bent way out).

Apart from probably not being a real proto, but EPROM's reprogrammed with a ROM image and labels printed in a laser printer, I also think the deal is too risky. These are my reasons:

1.- The seller has 100% positive feedback, yes, but always for low amounts of money (none of more than 100 euro.) I already had a bad experience with another seller who had this kind of feedback, so I don't really trust it too much (I don't know the seller, though.)

2.- PayPal protects only up to $200. I have seen auctions of videogames in which the buyer had a protection of up to $1,000 or even $2,000 in some cases (check http://pages.ebay.com/help/tp/paypal-protection.html) If I was protected for $2,000 and was interested in the item for the $3,500 it's being sold (too expensive IMO) I would think about it, but a protection of only $200 is very low...

And of course, that point of the right pin of the second chip down being bent is kind of a "botched job", which gives the idea that the seller hasn't taken too much care of the chips.

looking at the image further, those stickers look a little aged. also, the fact that the pin is bent cant really be seen as it being fake. he probably got these from somewhere else, but that doesn't mean they are fakes. even still, thats way too much money for me to spend.
