It looks like a reproduction cart with modified code. It's not really worth anything so-to-speak. There are people who will pay top dollar for quality reproductions that work perfectly on the actual hardware, though.
The PSTV is amazing.

Well, here's the artwork they *ahem* borrowed for it.

Maybe it is this romhack?

SO I ended up cancelling my transaction on ebay. I had originally paid $45 for it. But I told them that I did some research and found out that it is a bootleg. I really appreciate the feedback.

What'd they say? Considering they're supposedly saying they don't know anything about it, wonder if they're just making that up... :lol:

They refunded my money without any problem. They of course said they had no idea it was a bootleg.

It's actually a pretty cool repro to have. One of the best SNES hacks.
