Street Fighter II SNES Cartridge For $100!


Capcom and iam8bit have teamed up to produce a limited edition Street Fighter II Collector's Collection, which includes a freshly-made reproduction cart of the original version of Street Fighter II for SNES, as well a "premium" instruction book, a box, and some other "random" goodies. All of this for a hundred bucks.

So for those bitching about a new version of Street Fighter II on the new Nintendo Switch system costing too much money... well, here's an old version of the game that cost way the heck more.

I love the additional warning the site gives regarding the cart;

"WARNING: Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire. The SNES hardware is deemed a vintage collectible, so please exercise extreme caution when using the Product and make sure there is fire extinguishment equipment nearby. Use of the Product is at the sole risk of the user. The Product is sold “as is”.  Neither iam8bit, Inc. nor Capcom Co, Ltd. make any representation or warranty, express or implied, of any kind, including any warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, or that the Product is safe to use, and iam8bit, Inc. or Capcom Co, Ltd. shall have no liability for damage to property or persons arising from use of the Product. Nintendo of America is in no way associated with the release of this Product."

So, there you go, kids. Not only are they offering an old SNES game for a hundred bucks - an old SNES game that you could probably get for way cheaper used - but they're also offering an old SNES game that can kill your console for a hundred bucks. See, if I wanted to kill my console, I'd just get a hammer from the Dollar Store and smash it with that. Less hassle.

Anyway... that's a thing that's being offered now. Not sure if I want to actually go out and get one for myself, since I already have a perfectly functional copy of SF2 for my SNES that won't cause my machine to explode... or maybe I'm just holding out for something similar to be done with ol' Blue Boy... wait, not happening? Oh, okay.

Sooooooo....... have fun.

Pick-ups tomorrow.
