Good early afternoon videogameauction readers. We have an interesting line up of auctions today. We’re going to start off with a pretty looking Nintendo test station. What is a Nintendo Test Station? Well it was a Nintendo Entertainment System testing machine made by Nintendo in 1988 with the ability to test games, accessories and hook-ups. The device only appeared at World Of Nintendo retailers and was used by employees to test customers’ Nintendo Entertainment System paraphernalia.
The unit itself is very large, weighing almost forty pounds, and securely hooks up to the television through both AV Cables and RF Switch in one wire. The user can choose which output to use for game-play by pressing the RF/AV for Audio/Video Cable connection, or leave it unpressed for RF Switch connection. The television it’s hooked up to (normally nineteen inches) is meant to be placed on top of it.
When the system is turned on, you have the option to select either the AC Adapter, Game Pak, Accessories (which include the Controller, Zapper, ROB, or Power Pad), Control Deck, Audio/Video Cables, and RF Switch with a black knob and they will be tested. The testing simply displays the selected output’s results as either ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail. (Wiki)

Next item up for bid is a sealed copy of Chrono Trigger. Now it’s not just any sealed copy of Chrono Trigger… oh no…. it’s actually from Digital Press. For those of you who don’t know Digital Press it’s a store located in New Jersey but more specifically they’re known for their Video Game Rarity guide. They have an online Database and also 2 books which you can purchase. Check out the site, you’ll find some interesting things here at Digital Press. So with that said it is interesting that they’re releasing a Sealed Chrono Trigger copy on eBay.
I’m curious how they got it, if it was a trade in, was it in their stock? But never the less you can bet this copy is in great shape. I did notice a dent in one of the pictures on the side corners but that could just be my bad vision. Anyways if you want to bid on it there’s 6 ays left, click here to bid on a sealed copy of Chrono trigger.
