Huh, ended with no bids? Nice price too, considering the rarity...

Very few people still have or use the PCW, so it wouldn't get so much attention (not as much a CPC stuff anyway). But someone must have bid on it, because it was sold for its starting price.

So you bought it?? :) Cool, let me know if it works. If it doesn't, send it over! :)

If it's only the serial interface you need, not the RAM expansion, there's now a CPS8256 up for grabs for just €15,90.

And to return to the Enterprise 128 conversation: [ebay]200687755628[/ebay] starting at €149, might be worth watching?

The seller seems to be a collector, offloading quite a few interesting consoles and 8-bitters: http://www.ebay.de/sch/susie900/m.html?hash=item2eb9ec216c&item=200687755628&pt=Klassische_Computer&_trksid=p4340.l2562

Ooh yeah, spoons and forks! Should go nice with the breadbins... Such a shame he only posts within Deutschland though, I'd love to hit one of those pong machines...

Send me a PM if you want me to bid on one for you. But not for the rusty Forks, I want them for myself!

Is it illegal?

What, taking a game that was released online for free, sticking it on a chip and selling is as an authentic cart title? I would guess so...

I'm not sure. Seller could argue that he's charging for his work with putting the game on a cart. I'm sure lots of people will pay for a cartridge version. I don't think it's illegal.

First of all I doubt he's asked for permission to sell the game. What's more, he doesn't say this is not an original cart, or that this is a freeware game. And he's done it before...

*sigh* taking one's work and selling it *is* illegal. Selling something while pretending it's something else *is* illegal. not to mention eBay's regulations about bootlegs, misleading items etc.

No, the seller has never contacted me, but I think they should probably be more worried about Konami than me.
