    Thank you for the explanations. I now believe that this cart is a bootleg. My father owns an arcade company and I have started selling surplus items and I have been doing research on everything and ran into a blank wall regarding the U.S Neo Bomberman. I didn't know how to price it and there is someone selling the U.S Neo Bomberman for two hundred dollars on a particular site. It seems that it's a bootleg, especially with the poor quality of the mini marquee. I also believe that a Real Bout Fatal Fury Special Cart that I have is also a bootleg, also coming from the same distributor. The mini marquee is of poor quality just as the Neo Bomberman. The other carts that I have which have a high quality mini marquee must be authentic. So, if one has the mini marquee, that appears to be a good litmus for whether the cart is a bootleg, essentially the quality level of the mini marquee.

    Is it illegal to sell a bootleg cart on Ebay? Of course I would label the item as being a bootleg cart so as not to be a criminal.

    If you're selling bootlegs, people can report you.

    One way to unload them is to offer the boots as freebies for people who buys a genuine cart from you.

    just because the MM is fake doenst mean the cart is, or the MM being real and the cart being a boot. the best way to determine whether its a boot or not is to go here... open the cart and check the boards

    Thanks Panda. I found out that World Wide Video had been targeted in a F.B.I sting on behalf of SNK USA, regarding piracy. I will open up the cartridges, though I am uncertain how to keep the label intact.

    Edit: Thanks Panda. You are absolutely correct. The Real Bout Fatal Fury Special had a cheap MM but the board , through looking at the MVS scan appears to be 100 percent legit. So, anyone who might have faulty thinking as I had, one really needs to open up the cartridge to find out whether the cart is a boot or not.

    Edit: Ok, I opened up the neobomberman cart and now I have a mystery. The boards have SNK written on them, but the chips appear to be intel flash yet some of the chips seem original. I checked the MVS scan and they are indeed very different from this PCB.






    I am guessing boot as it has flash chips but not sure if that's a hallmark of a boot.

    Full on boot. Even the PCM, 273 and ZMC are fakes.
