There’s a lot of rare video game auctions currently running on eBay. A lot of dev/proto/test auctions to show you as well which we don’t feature as much as we should here on VGA. I personally don’t collect anything that’s was used to develop games or test them but I know there’s a big collectors base for these type of items, especially for prototypes. Test carts are pretty cool as they are a unique sort of software that most gamers never really get to see. I use to work at a video game store where the owner had SNES test carts to test the games and I have to admit it was pretty cool to see this thing run it’s tests; everything from visuals to sounds. I can just imagine the sort of things you can do with hardware pieces such as this next auction.
Seller safestuff1 has a Nintendo Dolphin AMC DDH Development System Prototype on auction. Price is currently at $399 with one bid. Seller says: “This auction is for a very rare Nintendo Dolphin Development System. The unit comes as pictured, with a controller, the AV cable, and the power cable. There is a hard drive installed, but I don’t know what is on it. I don’t know what it takes to fully boot the system, but you probably need the interface cable to the PC you are using for development. This is designed to test your software. You download it to the internal drive, and then boot the system to play your game. I don’t have the manuals or the Codewarrior software that runs on the PC.”
Other Video Game Auctions:
Xbox 360 Treasure Chest – Seller doesn’t give any details how he obtained this treasure chest, but it’s for the 360 era despite the traditional XBOX writing from the first system. Chest has a bunch of stuff including a sealed copy of Forza Motorsports 3, Alan Wake 6.3 gb game downloaded, and plenty of t-shirts to add to your wardrobe. There’s a ton of other stuff inside the chest so check it out!
Nintendo NES control deck test cartridge grey – Seller says: “Here we have an extremely rare Nintendo control deck test cartridge for the NES. This was given is scarce quantities to Nintendo repair shops. This is the CONTROL DECK TEST CARTRIDGE. What makes it even more desirable is that it says NINTENDO WORLD CLASS SERVICE at the top, instead of the more common NTF2. Also I’ve seen this label on orange carts, but this cart is grey and also has the caution sticker on the back. I sure can’t find another one on the internet that looks exactly like this one. Cart is in great shape. There is a little discoloration of the label at the top, the chip is sweet and the game works well.”
