Nintendo Told Us All Along That Blowing On The Cartridge Wouldn’t Work

Kotaku - The popular myth has been debunked: you can't blow on cartridges to make them work. Actually, blowing on the cartridge might damage it. Sorry, folks. It's true.

The story is too old to be commented.

Dang, I used to do this all the time when I was younger... It worked in my mind at least lol!

This debunks nothing. They don't even show regular NES games that blowing on it worked.

"No, don't blow on it! Buy our cleaning solution instead... ya, pay us instead of blowing on it and fixing it for free!"

I don't believe the debunk. They just want you to buy their cleaner. Blowing on NES games worked to get them fixed. All of us old school gamers KNOW this.

Amen. I have years of evidence to back it up. Game wouldn't load. Took it out. Blew on it. It worked. This happened over 100 times, easy.

I used to put rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip to make it work or blow on the cartridge.

As I got older I did the alcohol thing, back in Elementary/Middle School was a different story.

It did work. Otherwise millions of people woudln't have done it when you had lint lodged in it. HUR DUR Nintards.

Lol, no, I debunk your debunk. Almost everytime I'd blow on my cartridge it would work afterwards. You won't tarnish my childhood beliefs! :p
