Apparently, this Nintendo 64 cart was rumoured to be in existence for N64 collectors, but had yet to be confirmed. One collectors just vaguely remembered seeing one during the N64 heyday in Japan. Oddly, it’s U.S. release game according to the serial code (NUS-USA/CAN-1), but the text is all in Japanese.

Sidenote: Michael, you’re a great writer. Interested in some guest posts sometime?
I’m not a Game Boy collector, but I do recognize that there are a TON of system variants and special releases out there. This auction pulled together a bunch of the rarer, and Japan only exclusives.

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Jack Thompson. If so, than you know the irony that this auction presents. Personally signed at this year’s VGXPO in Philadelphia where Mr. Thompson participated in an open panel debate about violence in video games. Also, 100% of the sale will go to the Child’s play charity.
Now, I have to credit skcin7 for listing this auction, specifically to enter this contest. That wasn’t forbid in the rules, so I applaud his ingenuity. However, couldn’t you have at least thrown us a link in the auction?

Sidenote: I just read that Wikipedia Entry on Jack – Wow… just wow.
11x17x10 inflatable station, with ultra comfy inflatable chairs, XBOX 360, 84″ adjustable screen and 7.1 surround sound speakers. Wow.
This baby could no doubt pay for itself if you set it up at a fair/carnival/festival.
One bid at $2,000 with one day to go.

This controller was offered in a Nintendo Power contest, and limited to 1000 units produced. Never available for sale, they were only available to winners of a random drawing. Even better, this is #1 of 1000! Seller states that this is the second one they have ever seen sold, and most are still unaccounted for by collectors.
