Mega Man Anniversary Cartridges Go On Sale

The official repro’s of Mega Man 2 (NES) and Mega Man X (SNES) have been put up for sale on

These “30th anniversary editions” appear to be the exact same game as the original and are $100, which is about the cost of a good ROM Cart.

If you listen closely, you might be able to hear the yawns of real gamers, over the scurrying of eBay resellers who are currently buying as many of the 8500 copies as they can to soon resell for a price hike.

It always makes me sad to see time, effort and money wasted, just to cash in on the popularity of retro gaming.  I’d much rather have seen that same effort put into an region-free release of Wily Wars, or even more Japanese translations like Holy Diver.
