I think you should bid - it has not been dumped as far as I can tell.

Please do. I wish this were my fat paycheck, to own that for that little... that would be sweet!

Sadly, rent too high, owe money to the state, got to be realistic.

Since it appears to not have been dumped, I'll bid for it closer to the end of the auction (Easter Sunday) to try and win it. (Wow, the bid is still at $91 2 days later, and only 10 bids currently, with 3 days left).

Anybody else who can should bid also, in case I don't win it. I just hope whomever wins it is not a hoarding collector and dumps it, because it looks very interesting and Tetris DS was a favorite DS game of mine.

You have to be careful with ebay and bidding.

In my opinion, if you bid right now then the final price is going to be higher for whoever wins it. Ultimately, bidding comes down to the final minutes of an auction. That's when people will start slamming down money in an attempt to outbid others which only just raises the final price insanely. In someways it is a little bit of a crap shoot unless your pockets are just that deep.

You can count me in for $50-100 if you end up going above what you think your normal max would be. I don't have a ton of money, but this is a piece of history I'd rather not lose.

Auction is now at $127.50, with 23 hrs left. According to the bid history, appears two particular bidders have been trying to outbid each other in ~$20 increments. Will be placing my bid later on today (thank God I just got paid).

Yikes. I can probably drop in a bit more (the end of the month is soon) because this is an important part of Tetris history I'd love to preserve.

(Indeed . Been watching it periodically throughout the day).
Just placed both my bid and max bid, and will check the auction again tomorrow morning a few hours before it ends and Easter mass.

EDIT: Was winning at ~$300 until crazy bids in the last minute. I did, however, copy the photos and the listing info.

$520 was the final bid

It always comes down to the final moments. That's how it always is. You have to have super deep pockets to win.

And that is why I usually don't bid for items like this on eBay...

I'm guessing the odds of this seeing a release now are pretty slim.

Seems we've got a Sonic Heroes GCN release.

http://www.tssznews.com/2016/04/06/sonic-heroes-e3-beta-for-game-cube-dumped-and-released/

Probably well known by the time I post this, just thought posting here for redundancy's sakes wouldn't be a bad idea either.

The Sonic Heroes E3 demo for GameCube reminds me: Why was any mention of the demo's Xbox version removed from the game's prototype page on the wiki at least twice, stating that it hasn't been found or hasn't been dumped?

It was found and dumped ages ago, and I'm 99% sure that build is what I tried out once on, and probably still have stored on, my own Xbox (tho I'm not sure where I put that system, so I can't check right now). Anyone able to shed some light onto this for me?

Apparently, the Tetris DS Proto is back from the same dealer ! It must be a different build

1 day to end of auction.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-NDS-Prototype-Flash-Card-USA-TETRIS-DS-UNRELEASED-2005-Nintendo-DS-TOSE-THQ-/172166560148

EDIT: Indeed, a different version

Auction details:


It's a version dated February 1st, 2005. There is no debug menu and the game probably is in final state with all game modes included. It's very different from the version dated November 9th, 2004.
Version: NTR-ATTE10-USA. CRC32=45A31B4D. Game languages are English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.



Sound like this would be akin to the "final" version of StarFox 2 vs. the beta. Somebody should notify some website interested in the item to organize a group bid unlike how XKeeper and I lost the previous time individually. I don't wish to see this disappear into a possible collector's hands again...
