Very easily! Just have a look at the flap on the very bottom of the box. It's folded in the same manner as the North American releases. Just compare this very copy with any other copy online and you'll see what I mean.


Holy shit. I didn't even realize till you made me go look that the Japanese boxes fold the same on top and bottom. O_O
Years of collecting VB games and never knew this...
Feel a bit like an idiot. :D

Yeah everyone should report listings like this. I would, but it's US shipping only, and being in Canada and eBay changing things so it flat out doesn't seem to let me see items that don't ship here. Everyone with a US ebay, though, please report this listing!

Repros like this are awful, it just pisses me right off that people are willing to put all sorts of effort into ripping other people off. I want to give that person a good smack upside the head.

I wonder if it's just the box that's fake or also the cart...

Some sort of scam, or at least something very fishy, occurred there. The seller of the $110.00 auction had zero feedback, and that seller used the same photos from this previous auction:

Yes, that reeks of scam. $110 is way to low for what's being offered, but too high for "random person ended up with one and doesn't know what it's worth" but the feedback and pictures are a dead giveaway.

I'm also pretty sure that picture was stolen from the last Virtual Bowling that was on eBay too, which wasn't all that long ago.

Heh...yeah, I didn't pay attention to those details at the time I took that screenshot. I was just browsing the recently sold items and was like "damn!" when I saw it. But yes, looking at it now, this is no doubt total bullshit.
