awesome grab. 850 is not bad at all! i wouldnt mind a conversion but even that, people want too much for it. mvs is fine enough for me
Thanks! I've been looking for a real MS1 for some time and I don't do conversions. The only things missing are a snap lock case and 2 pieces of paper. I'm good with that.
JP MS1's are still cheaper but keep in mind, a) they almost never come up for sale, b) it's a heavily bootlegged game, and c) it's a high demand game. At this point in the market, a US MS1 will be in the car-money stage, five figures. A complete JP would probably be half that. Not including the VideogameX crazy auction, the last complete JP MS1 AES I've seen was in 2014 for $2200 at a retro store in Japan. So a genuine loose cart for $850 is more than reasonable for my budget.
Lucked out and came across some PVM speakers on Craigslist! I ended up buying two pairs from the guy since I doubt I'll come across any again. Still trying to find a place to put the PVM though.

Glad you're happy but if you don't care about the art then why even go AES?
My collection is a mixture of AES and MVS. As for MS1, we all know the AES is essentially a holy grail cart and I wanted a genuine copy for a long time, especially on how infected the market is with boots. I never buy loose AES carts but in this instance I made an exception because of how rare it is. If a complete genuine copy rolls around, I may go for upgrade. For now, this will do nicely.

That Intellivision version of BurgerTime is amazing. I played the hell out of it as a kid and I think it played better than the NES version, though my memory is weak. One of the few arcade games the INTV actually did well. Carnival is an example of a game it did completely wrong.
This is hands down the definitive version of Forgotten Worlds that isn't the PCB. The OST alone is worth the experience. There is some graphics shredding but that is a minor flaw. You will have a helluva time with that game.
