Ok guys, calm down! Lately we’ve seen a super boost in NWC1990 cartridges sales, but we usually talk about Grey ones, that are extremely rare (and expensive), but not as the Gold ones.
Last year we reported about another Nintendo World Championship 1990 grey cartridge found by some Italian collector. We also said the the nice piece of plastic is usually worth around £10k. But here we got a new record, since a long-date collector from North Carolina is selling his one on eBay, and the auction already reached $90k!!
With a RRP of £429, the Xbox One is surely not the cheapest console you can find out there. But when it comes to expensive shit there’s only one place in UK (and possibly the world) where you find the craziest prices.
This thursday the 3DS eShop will finally be hit with 3D classics from SEGA, including arcade masterpiece Space Harrier.
The game is obviously published by SEGA, but the actual port of the old arcade game (alongside with all the other SEGA classics for the Nintendo 3DS) is made by developer M2, that started in the industry many years ago and it’s responsible for the SEGA AGES compilations on Saturn, and eventually, on PlayStation 2 and Wii Virtual Console.
You didn’t? Well good for you. You did, don’t worry, that’s our job. Anyway, even if SEGA didn’t make much fuss about it (they’re probably too busy with Rome II and Football Manager), they found the time to release the sequel of one of the best, most fun, over the top, finger-breaker, completely weird game ever made: The Typing Of The Dead. Anyone fancy a little type-instead-of-shoot some zombies?
The original title was released in 1999 for japanese arcades, and then worldwide on Dreamcast, PC and PlayStation 2. It was based on the second chapter of the main series, and was a masterpiece.
This one, as the title surely suggest, is based on the latest installement of the series, Overkill, and features a lot of funny shit (and swearing).
The Typing Of The Dead: Overkill is out now on Steam for less than £15. Just go for it, thanks us later.
Capcom’s amazing remake of evergreen classic Duck Tales, after its debut this year as a digital download, finally gets a disc-based retail version. Bless those bagpipes, fans of physical media! DuckTales: Remastered will be getting a disc and box on store shelves across North America starting November 12th. Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U at $19.99.
Yes, everything’s really cool, but what about us? What about Europe? Well, we asked Capcom UK and this was the answer.
@ThatDamnPixel We’re currently discussing opportunities for a physical release in Europe. At this stage nothing has been decided”

Let’s hope Europeans, let’s hope. Stay tuned!
Yep, you read it right and it’s not a typo. Nintendo has really unveiled a new handheld called Nintendo 2DS! Also yes, it is exactly how you can see from the pic above, a one piece handheld device.
When we first heard the news, we immediately check the calendar, looking for an April 1st on today’s date…but not. This is real, and in our opinion pointless.
Nintendo is claiming that the new 2DS is capable of playing original DS and 3DS games in amazing…2D (you don’t say?).
Also, seems that the new portable console will be available this October in NA and Europe only for, at least, the quite cheap price of 129.99$
Here’s the official trailer.
But, what are the real differences among all the Nintendo handhelds now on the market? Here’s a sum!
Yep, looks like Gran Turismo 6 is really coming, and if it won’t be delayed too much (see: GT5) we will be able to enjoy it on the current PlayStation 3 console (so, no next-gen at all? We’ll see). Now, it’s hard to say what the game will be about, well, it will be about cars, ok, but from a single trailer (below) we don’t want to risk too much by saying that Polyphony Digital guys are doing a great job. You decide.
For now, we just know that the game features 1200 different cars and something like 33 circuits. Not bad at all!
Your move Forza Motorsport.
So, let’s recap a bit. Firstly a former SOJ (see: SEGA of Japan) employee revealed a very old console prototype, called SEGA Pluto, that basically is just a Saturn with internet connection, but there are no other known unites around, so we assume it’s pretty rare. Than another guy (pictured above), after seeing all the news about the Pluto, realized that he got one in his collection (what a lucky guy!). So only two of them in the entire world, still pretty rare.
This second chap then decided to put his long-forgotten-fresh-discovered SEGA Pluto prototype up on a eBay auction, but the auction finished at $15.5k with reserve price not met. Such a shame! Is that possible that the guy is so greedy not to accept more than $15k for an old console?
SEGA Nerds guys reached Roger Vega (this is the name of the young man) to ask some question about the auction. So here we go!
Hey shmup nerds, we got a really good news for you all!
After Rising Star Games‘ announcement about their decision to not release any other Cave’s shooter in the west due to poor sales, we all lost hope to play all the upcoming bullet hells from the well-known Japanese software house.
But thing are getting better as Cave itself tweeted this last week:
Xbox 360 怒首領蜂最大往生は海外の本体でも遊んで頂くことができます♪

As usual, we know Japanese language could be a bit tricky, so everything you need to know is that DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 will be region-free! This is an amazing news, and we’re all glad to Cave to allow us western players to enjoy their upcoming arcade port for the Xbox 360.
Obviously it will be a bit more expensive than a theoretical PAL/NTSC-U version, due to the import status and all the shipping costs, but still at least we got the chance to play it.
