Halloweens coming soon! I’ve yet to make a decision on whether I’m buying the official Super Mario costume or the official Sonic the hedgehog costume! It’s a real tough decision, but the Sonic one looks like it can win me some contests 😉 Moving on with auction findings, first up is this neat Mortal Kombat II Mini Arcade.
I’m not sure how many of you seen the Pac-Man version a while back but these mini arcades are really cool. It’s so much more convenient than moving in a huge arcade in your house. So you’re basically substituting the real arcade experience for convenience.
This version of Mortal Kombat II isn’t based on the arcade version, but taken from the PlayStation 2 version. With that said, there isn’t a motherboard, but an actual PS2 console in the cabinet. Which is good for us less gifted technicians ;). The seller gives details about the mini cabinet:
–“SHARP 7” LCD TFT
-SONY PLAYSTATION 2 SLIM CONSOLE
-I-POD STEREO style audio system with volume control from the top of the cabinet.
-Original arcade joystick : HAPP COMPETITION (of course) the best fighting games joystick
-The buttons are very smooth and responsive with incorporated switches”
But wait! The description is not the best part…… this cabinet also comes with 53 other games! Here’s the list the seller put up: Mortal kombat 3. Metal Slug, The King Of Fighters 94,Street Fighter 2,1943, Final Fight, Ghouls’n Ghosts ,Commando ,Forgotten Worlds, Mercs, Fatal Fury ,Top Hunter, and Gauntlet 2! There’s obviously more that listed. I don’t know about you but this is well worth the current price!

Here’s a clip I found that the seller put up on youtube:
Now here’s something really cool. Symphony of the Night was one of my favourite games (like anyone else who grew up in the PlayStation days). I have to say the cup from this auction sort of rings a bell. I tried searching for it on Google and couldn’t come up with anything but I remember Play-Ops giving out something bizarre like this. Bids at $164.50. Seller says: “check out my other auctions for rare games! here is a cup (or wine glass?) i got at playops when the game came out. i was one of the first ones at the shop to pick up my copy and the guy handed me this cup. i remember thinking why would i get a cup as a gift?? i haven’t seen this on ebay before and it’s probably because of how easy these can break. the cup is made out of plastic and is quite fragile. my cup is in good condition. the juice (or blood?) is still inside the cup but u can pour a drink inside of it still. the only thing missing is the tag that was around the cup. im throwing in my copy of castlevania which was tested and works. get this before halloween! check my other rare stuff!” Click here for Castlevania SOTN Game & Cup
Rare Video Game Informer Packages
eBay seller wwwmywantlistcom always has interesting things to put up for auction. I’m always amazed with what I can find in his store. Moreover, a lot of times any item that he lists is the only one on eBay. Quite the collection he massed up, but today he’s got some goodies:
Nintendo Ultra 64, Virtual Boy ’95 Annual Report+letter – Check out the cover of this report, it shows the “Ultra 64” instead of Nintendo 64 :). Pretty cool. The package also contains a letter to publishers and developers with original Nintendo envelope and postmark! Museum quality!
Sega Saturn Confidential Prospective Licensee Info Pack – Watch out….what you might know can kill you! This was “sent to prospective licensees. This includes the letter, spec sheet, 3rd party info, Sega Visions magazine, and even the original Sega envelope with postmark”
3DO Inside Newsletter & Club News for Licensees – 3DO collectors should jump on this.
NEO GEO Sales Kit Folder & More – “The folder contains system info, game info, and more. There is a bit of shelf wear on the folder, as you can see in the pics. This would have been given out to prospective customers as well as prospective licensees.”
Artfx Squaresoft Saga Frontier II Gustav XIII Statue – He has another one of these? And at a great price!
Captain Hook Plush Doll Sega Promo – random? Common you guys want this
