    Well, it has a manual, that's a plus. That cart is going to be expensive. I would ask for shots of the boards for sure. Don't get burnt.

    Kid Panda, you missed the cartridge label? Really?

    In case it's not already obvious, yes, that's a conversion. The only way to tell is to open it up and check for Mask ROMs. If it's full of windowed EPROMs or flash chips, then it's a bootleg.

    Guys, don't be fooled. It could also be roms from an original MVS carts that look just like the real deal. Metal Slug 2 is easily convertible (not like MSX or MS3 which both need decrypted eproms) and there is lots of bootlegs around. I'd say check on the solder side but even then, you can't be 100% sure nowadays. Fucking bootleggers. They ruined it all

    Mask ROMs > EPROMs.

    I'd sooner blame the retarded collectors who have more money than brains.

    Not like the insert... it's just the Slug itself with a detailed background. Same applies for the english version.

    Edit: ...

    Here's some info shared by just another "collector"... MS2 fake.

    And here's the place from where it probably dwells... MS2 fake source.

    I never look at games that are that expensive. Happy with my 30 dollar MVS cart.

    It's fake, that's already been discussed in another thread. Check the label on the cartridge, it's lacking detail.

    He probably found one con in his collection and just want others to share his experience. He gave all the red signs, never mentioned his old-tymer status (join date 2011/165 posts) and deals with hacked Maze carts as a hobby. If someone buys that MS2, is just asking for a lesson. Who are we to begrudge him this empirical knowledge?

    well my really bad italian skills tell me that he added info on mails regarding the authenticity, he got it from a collecting friend and he is never gonna open it. oh and once sold, no giving back under any circumstances. very reassuring, but someone didn't mind...
