    Since these carts were scarce to begin with,I wouldn't mind an MS6 reproduction at the 50 USD price tag.

    When I found out there were boots, I went back to look at them [SS6 specifically since $150 was cheap for it] and noticed the labels didn't have rounded edges. I initially opened them to see VERY nice PCBs that read "Sammy" w/the logo and everything. I immediately sighed with relief that they were legit. But after seeing this thread as well as seeing others I knew were boots it became clear. But without them next to each other, its next to impossible to tell. Plus, the MS6 ones have rounded edges on the label and very high production quality. The serial being the only "give away". I, personally, love them. [for what they are]

    I just found this out today. I thought I might have gotten a KOF XI boot but my label has rounded corners and a different serial number from the one posted above. I still want to find a legit copy of SS6 that does not run me over $350.

    That's the way I feel in regards to purchasing the original but in the meantime a 50 USD repro is a good hold over and the only bot title I would consider purchasing.

    Wow, I hope no one here with the intention of buying a legitimate release got burned.

    Seriously though, IMO these boots should not be supported as it only encourages the makers to make more. Aren't bootlegs one of the main causes for the SNK's downfall?

    Well, considering the last atomiswave game to be made was in 2009, and you could only RENT that particular cartridge... I don't think it matters anymore
    When I figure out how I got here I'll let you know

    SNK's downfall was mostly due to high production costs which led to high price tags which led to little market share. If the prices of the games and console were only $50 more than any of the other systems out at the time then it would have been very different in outcome because of the quality of the product and power of the console. But the AES was about $300+ more than other consoles at the time and games were 4-6+ times higher also.

    I haven't got MS6 yet buts it s a boot. I went ahead and filed a claim anyways. The seller has another auction with the boot serial plainly listed.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Metal-Slug-6-Ato...item23112c587b

    If he would of listed his initial auction clearly then this wouldn't be an issue, however the seller is trying to pass them off as real.

    The seller, mai4lu, has several other fake atomiswave carts listed. Has put up pictures of the bootleg pcbs and removed "100% orginal" from the auction listing.

    I have a feeling that this seller didn't know it was a boot. Otherwise he would not have uploaded pics of the pcb.

    I could be wrong, but I think there are other serial numbers that are boots. It looks like some that are listed as English version carts have different serial numbers than the ones listed in this thread. There's a guy on ebay right now from France that looks to be selling boots, but his serial numbers don't match the ones from this thread. FYI.

    Well I got refunded, "The picture is for reference only, but I don't want an unsatisfied buyer. I hope this satisfies you and I apologize for any inconvenience." The seller also listed the game again, It really pisses me off when people keep trying to scam.

    In other news I'm off to alibaba to grab a 30 dollar copy, lmao.

    There is a tracking number but it just says that electronic shipping info was received. Odds are it wasn't shipped, and if it was I'll just mail it back.
