I Want A Nintendo 3DSXL And NES Classic – OH WAIT :(

I Want A Nintendo 3DSXL And NES Classic – OH WAIT :(

As many of you know, the new Nintendo 3DSXL released 2 years ago back in February 2015. In September of 2015, the Nintendo 3DS released. Both of these handheld Nintendo consoles were released over a year ago to critical acclaim.

Even More Protos! Ebay Listing On Super Rare Deadly Arts N64 Prototype Appears!

Even More Protos! Ebay Listing On Super Rare Deadly Arts N64 Prototype Appears!

A number of incredibly rare gaming related items and merch have recently shown up on Ebay. One such item is this listing for a Deadly Arts N64 prototype cart.

Per the seller, this proto cart has the N64 game Deadly Arts on it. Unfortunately, the Ebay seller listed the N64 prototype with the incorrect product information. Instead of describing this cart, the seller provided product info about the V-Rally Edition 99 for Nintendo 64. Of course, we’re assuming this is an accident.

However, the seller mentions (and documents) the missing label from the front of the cart. A number of retro collectors have their eye on this Ebay listing (there are currently 26 watching the listing and it is getting at least 1 view per hour). Read more…
