prototype collecting?

Recommended Posts

I've got estimated around 50 prototypes from NES to even Nintendo Wii. I do have a few unreleased ones. I've stopped collecting them over a year ago as it started to get very expensive in auctions now, so I never was able to win one within my price range. Used to, I was able to get them pretty low and won often, so I guess more people are into it now. I'll just be on the hunt for only ones I really want to own. There are 2 NES prototypes that got lost in the mail that I have yet to recover and one of them is one I really wanted to own. 😞

I'm sorry that you lost those 😞 

I hope that they're replaced someday 😞

Which ones were lost, if I can ask?

hihi, 

In the last year, I've gotten into collecting prototypes, I've got some for the GBA, for the PS2, one for the PS3, 3 for the SFC, and a few for the PSP, so I figured I'd ask.

Does anyone else collect prototypes here?

Out of curiosity, what GBA carts do you have?

2 Devil children(demikids) fire book builds, 2 devil children ice book builds(from the same day), 1 prototype of both the previous games put into one build, project alpha(vaporware using the same engine as the previous 3 builds), and a devil children dark demo.

I doubt it has value, but do people seek out unpopulated development board stuff?  I have this old Gameboy cart without a chip dropped in to test with it, but it does have a pretty shiny RARE gold sticker on it so at least you know who used it and probably could guess at for what too.

Can you DM me a pic of that? I'm curious.

I’m sure someone would want that because it’s Gameboy.

Wow, seems kind of slimy, I'd leave that to someone else.  I've kept it shelved away in a gb dust case in a cabinet for over a decade at least as I've had it a very long time.

@Tanooki yeah it would be very slimy, I don't condone it at all, was just referencing this article:

You know I saw something about that earlier referenced elsewhere.  They got caught and shamed hard on that one given the solid info about where the shell came from and the rest.  It's pretty obvious even to people who don't shop for protos that's a total fake given it has a retail board in that 'window' on the shell as it is.

You’d be surprised how little some research.

I've been collecting prototypes for many years (mainly NES) and I really enjoy documenting them. I would like to eventually have a list of every NES game prototype documented(or as many that even exist.) I need to post up my findings sometime when I have time to finish documenting them!

If anybody has a NES prototype they want dumped/documented, just let me know!

As a side note I have a Star Ocean 2nd Evolution PSP prototype that I'd love to dump, but I'm not sure how to do so.

I can walk you through the PSP dumping process for star ocean 2, if you have a PSP with CFW. feel free to DM me 🙂

alternatively, I'd love a pic of the disc 🙂

I've had a birth by sleep disc just like that and it contained retail content only, and was 1:1 with retail, in addition theres a "play" sticker which likely means it was meant to be be played as a QA test sample. In consequence with the 1.00, its likely a final. However, I'd still be happy to walk you through dumping it, because just like the parappa 0.2 that I have on UMD, it could be that its number defies the expectation.(parappa 0.2 has the same content as retail as far as I can tell, but the music is painful to listen to, and the queues are a bit off.)

Please DM me when you can and I'd be happy to help you out with dumping it.

its entirely possible it could contain a late debug menu, or it could contain additional content.

Ok cool! Yea I'm not sure what to expect with it. Even if it lands up being final it's still one of my favorite RPGs ever!
