Microsoft actually took all the old starter kit codes out of their database - so they don't actually work anymore. Customer support won't be able to find any evidence of the code existing and you'll pretty much not be able to get anything out of it.

I've got two unredeemed cards on my desk at work and there's pretty much nothing I can do to redeem them. Microsoft CS kept telling me to take them back to where I got them (even though I mentioned several times that they were from 2005).

If you somehow manage to redeem the code, let me know how you pull it off.

Most stores charge above eBay now.


Doesn't change that that is crazy. ;)

I'm guessing they just price things with the 50% off coupon in mind? I've got no HPB stores in my area, so I'm unsure how they operate.

Not really. Its going for 75-80 cart only now. The last cib on eBay went for 164. It certainly is a good price if you want it


The vast majority end at around $130. It's insane for a brick and mortar store to expect top dollar eBay values.

Wait, Conker is $80 AFTER the 50% discount? They're charging $160 normally? That's ridiculous.

It was a promo video (N64 era). They were mailed out if you were on Nintendo's mailing list. I'm not sure if they were in stores too or not.


Blockbuster had the Starfox 64 one, which was (and still is) awesome.
