Good morning VGA readers, I’ve got a mix of interesting auctions and a lot of these are very affordable. First I want to bring to your attention the Metal Gear Solid Risk game is soon to come out (Thanks Joseph for reminding me about this). It’s limited edition and will be available through pre-order Oct 3- Nov 15 2011. The order is limited to 2 pieces per person. You can find out more details here.
First auction is for a NES MIDI Synthesizer Cartridge Chiptune. The seller’s description is clear, “I had x|k of wayfar make the cart for me a couple years ago and it served me well. If you don’t know what it is, it is a cartridge that plugs into the NES and has a midi port connected to it, allowing complete midi control over the synthesizer sounds inside of a Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the ultimate tool for making chiptune! It has control of 5 channels, 2 square waves, a triangle wave, a noise channel and a really awesome DPCM sample playback channel with some awesome classic drum samples in all their lofi bit crushed glory. “. A very cool tool if you’re into NES music. I wish I would have had this years ago when I was doing that very same thing.
Other Video Game Auctions:
– Lot of 96 Nintendo Power Super Power Club Trading Cards – The cards are uncut, intact and for the price it’s a great deal.
– Sonic the Hedgehog 15th Anniversary Special Employee badges – There are only 30 in the world which makes this extremely rare. The buy it now price is $300 which might be high for most Sega collectors.
– Legend Of Zelda Twilight Princess Promo Coin – Brand new promotional coin handed out as a promo item at Comic Con International 2005.
– The Flintstones: Surprise at Dino Peak – Great game, rare title and this one is on auction for $202 but doesn’t come with the box or manual.
– Vintage Atari Jaguar MINT / UNUSED – A very nice example of a Atari Jaguar. It’s brand new and the seller says it’s a low serial. I don’t think these were ever out of a certain number so what he means is production number.
– Super Mario Bros. Wall Stickers – These are from 1989 and have 42 stickers. The box has been opened but the contents inside are untouched.
– Fallout New Vegas – Rare Promotion Dice – Came as a pre-order bonus in Europe apparently. There’s 5 dice in the set. It’s on auction right now at $80.
– Resident Evil 4 5 Biohazard Special DVD – It’s a Japanese DVD so it may not play on NTSC dvd players, but I think the XBox might be able to play it?
– Super Mario Bros. Watch – A nice unopened Mario Watch figure. Asking price is $79.99. I think it’s a bit much, maybe worth around the $40-$50 mark.

– Stonix Intellivision – Very rare intellivision game, this is number 223/250.
– Nintendo Mario and Zelda Rare 1993 Easter Egg Decorating Kit – This is brand new and super cool. It’s from 1993 and I would have loved to have had this back then and make Easter Eggs. I would have brought them to school and pimp it out.
