Which games does this affect? I don’t recall reading anything about this.

 

On another note I was in a game shop in Singapore last week and they had shelves of home carts, including 2 Mark of the Wolves and a SSV Special. All games were mint. Also 5 or more home systems and even MVS carts, it was great to see and reminded me of when CEX Rathbone Place was the games shop to go to or Game Focus.

The encryption chips can be a bit flaky. It's very rare though and hardly anything to worry about 

I've seen it happen maybe twice on MVS carts

Nostalgia is a expensive thing if you want to collect for the AES now.

I always think the memories of actually owning one when it was released are far better :)

It's not _that_ expensive, you can pick up an actual AES console for around the price of the Mega SG

 

If you avoid the ridiculously expensive games, you can make a nice colection if you are savvy and dont use the buy-it-now on ebay etc

****EVERYTHING IS AUTHENTIC!!!!**** Bang Busters and Crossed Swords II are exceptions because they were not released so they are is a custom carts.


 

 

I mean, they're MVS carts, in softboxes, nothing "authentic" about them. Still, I'm trying to figure out why Chun Li is on the spine:

A shop near me has an AES for sale but it has a “work ram” error.

 

Is it reasonably easy to fix or anyone know where it could be sent for repair?

£100. I think it includes 2 sticks.

 

Two sticks in good condition are worth that, you get a free broken AES!
