Is that not just another one of those blank cartridges that only once held a Conker game because of the way Rare debugged carts?
There's a lot of those out there.


That was a great post. Right Zach?

Might be interesting for die hard collectors, but to be honest I wouldn't consider buying that. It looks a little sketchy and the seller is apparently not sure how it even works. Even if it works somehow, I'm not sure what you're even going to get. I'm guessing a broken, unfinished, buggy game. So it seems like a waste of money to me, but again, it might be interesting for die hard collectors and fans.

Where's that coming from, exactly?

I know the dude who originally got the carts from an ex Rare employee. There are like 30 or 40 total out there worldwide (most of them are Super Wideboys or non-Conker marked carts) making this cart more valuable than you may think. Maybe 20 or less Conker carts?

That's far from 'A lot', by all means.

Sucks that it supposedly isn't working on a normal N64. I'd have considered getting it if that wasn't that case. I guess it's safe to assume that the original version of Conker 64 is lost forever.

"A lot" wasn't literal. I meant "A lot" as in "carts like these are pretty much useless so it isn't very exciting".
But since you linked that page I assume you already knew that.

"And that is what makes this different from other prototypes: the dev cart would have communicated with a PC via an SCSI cable to run the game data. A computer at Rare would have stored the game and this cart would have loaded it temporarily. Once removed from that source, the memory is lost (the technical term for this is âEUoevolatile storageâEU). In other words, the actual Conker 64 game is no longer present-the dev cart was simply a tool to transfer Conker 64 for short-term play-testing on a TV."

Exactly, it is what it is.

It's only for a die-hard Conker or Rareware fan. Forget about EVER running Conker 64 from the cart. All I'm missing is the Rare PC with the files (which won't ever happen anyway). Still, for a Conker fanatic this is an amazing rare piece of awesome
