That's the same thing as saying, "couldn't we make a copy of this antique, to just as high a quality". It's not the original, and of course, things only sell for what people are willing to pay for them. Collectors value original carts quite highly, it seems.

I don't remember it saying there was only one copy made. And no you can't copy an antique, because they aren't made of binary code. Unless it's antique code.

if you have 500,000, why not spend it on something better? like i dunno, a Lamborghini maybe? no that's stupid! just buy a plastic cartridge! seriously, this guy needs some help....

well, if you actually read it you would know he wasnt actually trying to sell it, just let the gaming community know it exists and see what offers people made for future refrence.
