Found NES cartridge

by smalfri2 Fri Aug 31, 2012 8:28 pm

Hi, So I found this NES cartridge about a year ago at E3 2011. It was at the Nintendo press conference on the floor (like it was hidden under a seat or something). Is this anything? I put it in my NES (which doesn't work too well) and it brings up a blue screen with noises, most NES cartridge I know that are defective don't make sound. I'm gonna try and get another NES system to try it on soon. But if someone may know that would help.

Google reverse image search doesn't bring up a thing.

That looks like an old cartridge with a new label on it to me.

Pics of the back of the cart and pics of the cartridge running might help.

Agree, look at the dirty finger tab and the shiny label. A promo souvenir, a regular game cart with the E3 label? Can you pop the cart apart too, see whats inside? While you have it apart clean the contacts with a pencil eraser, then try running it. A follow up review with pics please.

Here is the back of it, and also what it looks like on the TV. I'll need a 3.8mm tool to open it.

Maybe a fan made cartridge from someone at Nintendo Connect's website. Their logo could've been different then. The new one is made after the Wii U. That old one shares resemblance of the Nintendo DS logo. Though their archive only dates back to February this year. Maybe an old Nintendo blog or fansite?

Definitely not NES-era old. It looks too new.

the label on the back looks genuine..i think its just a new sticker slapped on the front. Any sign of an original sticker underneath?
