Wow. I just checked completed listings. Between $60 and $80 pretty steadily. Now I wish I bought two copies lol.

Pretty box, and for people who never owned all stars (like me) it was a great deal.

Well, there's roms, virtual console, and the snes version.

How about people who don't own an SNES, this game ain't on VC, and buying all will cost more than this game did, and well, how about people who don't to pay for their games?

There's a big boxful of them at the Sam's Club near my house. Maybe I should buy a few and use them to trade.
Thanks everyone...

I haven't really read through this thread but my feelings on this are simple. It's not worth the asking price and certainly not worth the ebay prices it's demanding now. Maybe if they would've included the original versions of the games games along with Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island and Mario 64 as a bare minimum it would've been a nice collector's set. I would have also liked to see them throw in the more obscure Mario titles. They could have done a whole lot more with the music CD as well.

The rest of the stuff is nice I guess but just throwing Mario All-Stars, not even Mario All Stars+ mind you, on a disc is lazy.

I'm surprised that no one (as far as I know) has asked this: Is the emulation better than ZSNES/SNES9x? If so, then it might be worth it.

Seems exactly the same running SNES9XGX on the Wii. :roll:

Yeppers, seemed to me like Nintendo cashing in on the original Mario games for the thousandth time or so. Not sure what all the hoopla was about or why these things sold out of stores like hot cakes, but I commend Nintendo for somehow getting people to buy the same games over and over and over...

Well damn. Makes me wonder if Ninty just used the source from SNES9X.
