Nintendo M82 Store Display Demo Kiosk with Arcade-style Cabinet

This is downright sexy.

For those who aren’t familiar with the M82, it was an in-store demo system used by Nintendo to let people try out games. The cool thing about this is that it has 12 cartridge slots, so the store could have 12 different games loaded in their demo machine – customers could cycle through the different games without needing to have them removed and replaced with a new game. There was also a timer built in to it to keep kids from hogging the machine all day.

The M82 by itself is pretty difficult to come by, but the cabinet that goes with it almost never shows up. The seller thinks they only know of about three or four of these in collectors hands anywhere, and this is the first one up for sale since I bought they about five years ago.
