Quote from: L___E___T on September 25, 2015, 05:19:09 am For older games the price is different - but I gathered that 80sFreak was suggesting making a batch, and so I took a stab at what I think those would fetch on today's market (in the spirit of the price check thread). I get that not everyone likes repros, or wants to see them but they're not just worth the costs of parts in the general market. Sure they wouldn't be worth as much as Kaiser or WM but I think they're worth around $30-$60 if you were to offer them to the wider collecting community. Playing on an Everdrive's all well and good but many like to collect individual carts, original or otherwise.
Quote from: L___E___T on September 25, 2015, 07:47:38 am I understand your feelings on it, but 80sFreak asked for a general price check on what those items might go for - and so that is (judging from what NES repros tend to cost anyway) what they would go for. I know you personally hate repros but you do have to appreciate that is indeed a subjective view and the price check thread i snot the place to debate the ethics of repros, that thread is here: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=11714.0The Famicom World stance is basically on the fence and we try not to be necessarily for or against them. We're here for the collective community, of which some like them, some don't.Looking at many repro review videos on YouTube however, it's clear there are many 8-bit collectors out there that want an individual cart, legitimate or not to play with. That's not me endorsing them, just stating.Same with the price range, that's not me endorsing these - just stating what I would expect them to go for if they were offered generally.I don't think discussion on here is going to change the market either way - it is a bigger scene than this site / forum alone and it's ineffective for us to persuade ourselves to be Luddites if it's already happened. Look on Yahoo Japan Auctions, Tao Bao and of course eBay and you'll see it's widespread. Again not me endorsing, just stating the observation.We'll never allow dodgy sales threads to survive or pop up here, so as far as the site is concerned, I think we are in safe hands. But back on topic, the value of such carts would be $30-$60 generally.
Quote from: L___E___T on September 25, 2015, 08:10:46 am What would you expect them to get though in a wider sense? 80sFreak one way to test would be to make one and then see. i wasn't just referring to NES, but there's desire from that side for sure.When I said $30 - $60, I meant that the general FDS conversions may get $30 (i.e. half a legit port), with something like SMW getting $60. It's all theory though until something actually exists.

Quote from: SumixXam on September 25, 2015, 01:56:22 pmThe fact of the matter is that it is not against forum rules to buy/sell/make/what ever bootlegs or reproductions of games for old game systems such as Famicom/super Famicom/Genesis/MegaDrive/gameboy etc (rule 12). It is however against forum rules to troll flame or fight with other members (rule 6).
