GX4000 black market

Following the post on ridiculous Amstrad cartridge prices being fetched on Ebay, a bandwagonjumper has tried to cash in by selling off an obviously illegit copy of Street Fighter II for 40 quid. Wouldn’t mind but for some reason it won’t run on the console, just the home computers – think that might be something to do with the type of EPROM chip used to house the game logic. Maybe.

The black market in GX4000 is not new, supposedly beginning in Poland where games that never made an official release to cart eventually found their way onto the platform by unofficial means.  But hopefully all this will stir up the availability of a few more (legit) Pang carts in the coming weeks…
