Zelda OOT Proto Fundraiser
« on: October 09, 2014, 08:37 PM »
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zelda-Ocarina-of-Time-Nintendo-64-N64-Prototype-Debug-Gamecube-PAL-Version-/301339391078?pt=UK_PC_Video_Games_Video_Games_JS&hash=item46293a3466#ht_2233wt_1190

To explain, Bobo Mcloud and I are trying to get a hold of this cart and release the rom so it doesnt get stuck in collector's hands. This is a one in a lifetime oppurtunity to be able to contribute to the gaming scene. As for how this will be held...
-people willing to contribute should state how much they can throw down (in their currency, ex. USD, Euros, ect.)
-dontations will be collected ONLY if we win the cart
-donations will be made via paypal to Bobo's account (he is main contributer)
-cart obviously will go to highest contributer
-rom will be given to contributers BEFORE going public
-user names will be attributed to the release (you will be known as the "ones who made this possible")
Every dollar matters. We might be around $1340 short so if 27 people contributed $50, we could afford to get this. We have a little over 2 days left and I know this is a longshot (pun intended :D) but it is totally worth it.

Contributers:
Bobo Mcloud ($3000 USD)
Paulweeze ($400 USD)
Craigaaron (£100)
Mockylock ($60 USD)
Catastrophic ($50 USD)

Dang man, I wish I had seen this earlier but I just committed to $250+ of arcade hardware, which more than eats my self-set allowance for the month.

Good luck though, you're doing god's work ;)

9999GBP(16000$). Goddamn that's a lot of fucking money. It will take a lot of donators to reach that amount. If we do actually get there, I'm ready to shelf out 50$.

Yea, the buy it now price is ridiculous, but is a good way to have other collectors compete for the prize. Adding you to the list, thanks dude!
On the other hand, only 1 offer is pending on the item. If we explain our situation (if that one gets declined), we might have the ability to get it! That is if he really wants to contribute to the scene as well.

I'm in contact with the owner and I think I have room to negotiate, don't get discouraged by the buy it now price, remember the original bin price was $100,000!
I remain confident if we can get close to $1000 more it will be ours :)

Might be worth posting on forums more geared towards this kind of activity, would get more attention on places like Assemblergames and Nintendoage.
