I asked a friend if he had any NES games he wanted to sell me. Right away he said he'd give me Mario/Duck hunt for free because he has so many copies.

 

Has anyone had any luck getting this cart to work? I know duck hunt is not an option without the gun peripheral working on hdtvs. I'm just wondering if Mario would work. I remember people saying they were having problems with multigame carts working. I think someone mentioned something about that Sega 6-pack not working correctly because it couldn't to the main menu to pick a game.

Mine worked fine.

They swapped mine as well for $76.19. I had to pay the tax on it this time around because they started charging tax here this year. O'well, really wanted a black on but am tired of waiting. 9 months was long enough

^ well I obviously don't have all the sweet "connections" that you do but common sense tells me that they took more preorders for black then gray. I'm sure smaller stores, that might only be carrying one sku would lean towards black too since that is an infinitely more popular color for electronics. Because of this Retron most likely was stretched thin on their black inventory and is why Amazon hasn't had their allotment fulfilled yet. I have no doubt that we have CAGs, like myself, who put in orders for both on day one. Had amazon gotten even a small shipment some of these would have estimated shipment updates by now so either they're delayed in transit or they won't get them until the second wave.

All Im saying is I would take the word of a man who works for the company and help load them over an Amazon CS rep in a office god knows how far from the warehouse where they arrived. They could have arrived at the same time but have not been processed yet. But everyone getting so bent out of shape because they haven't got an email that the black console is going to arrive on the 6th yet. I have had mine bought and paid for since Sept, almost 9 months to the day but I'm not fussing. I am expecting people with pitch forks and torches before long though. Everyone take a deep breath, its almost here.

Got my copy of MLB 14 PS4 and Borderlands 2 Vita today. That's the fastest I've ever received something from them - only 7 days from when I purchased.


I got what I thought was my MLB 14 for the ps4 but it was in a large box. Seems someone made a mistake and sent the gold headset instead of my game. Packing label even said MLB 14.......it was fast though

Maybe Amazon will take another 20% off if it get delayed again. Worked the first time.
