GameStop Has Some EarthBound Stuff
This topic came up in the last post about the sample/prototype EarthBound board currently on eBay, so I thought I’d make a post about it here. Here is what EarthBound looks like if you strip it down and take the case off:
And here’s an EarthBound cartridge we currently believe is counterfeit:

It’d be nice to dump that cart to find out more about it. But I don’t know what’s become of it since it surfaced a few months back. Perhaps it’s the origin of the ROM version with all the anti-piracy stuff hacked out.
I’ve also heard rumors of some guy on eBay making new EarthBound carts the way one would make EarthBound Zero prototype reproductions and then selling them on eBay. If true, the insides would probably look a bit different than the real board too.
