Guy Collects all the Not For Resale N64 Carts (Wastes Tons of Money)
Not For Resale (NFR) carts are usually demo versions of a video game that are distributed to retailers so that the general public can check out and be enticed into purchasing a game. I’m sure that if you have ever been to a Walmart anytime in your life that you have come in contact with these demo kiosks and NFR carts before. Usually, the retailer has a deal with the manufacture of the demos so that when the demonstrations have ended the carts are returned to the manufacturer and DESTROYED. Ok, they are usually put in some sort of storage but sometimes they do get destroyed but the point remains that the public is not supposed to be resold these carts after the demo ends. Somehow huge amounts of these have gotten into collector’s hands and are quite rare but, sadly, they aren’t usually sought after so the prices are usually not that high compared to a standard release. There are exceptions, the N64 NFR carts are some of those exceptions. The Yoshi’s Story International Version alone can sell for over $500 dollars. This guy managed to collect them all, that is a feat. I do not even want to know how much he spent on all of this. I emailed him asking him how much he spent on them though and I am eagerly awaiting his response. In the meantime, watch this video as he goes through his collection!
