Was it a bad idea?
« on: February 26, 2016, 08:31 PM »
My friend talk to me about everdrive 64, that it can play like an emulator but on the console, so I decided to look up on ebay and I bought this one:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/222030802716?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=520896215937&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I didn't know about this official website, I know I paid way too much for a 2.5, but at least it has a setup guide and an cartridge box... But my question is:  is it an authentic? Is it a real one, or it's a copy or lame version? did I got scammed? Or this guy on ebay is a real Krikzz's dealer?

Here's what the description of the item says:

hard to say if you will get a legit one as it appears they are just using stock photos.  Most likely they just bought a bunch to resell.  The box looks like its just going to be a UGC with a printed cover.  They really should not be including roms as that sort of crosses the line and could get them shut down by ebay.  They arent listed as one of Krikzz's dealers so they probably aren't official.

If it's not a legit copy you can get a full refund with eBay buyer protection. I've dealt with eBay a lot, and I can 100% guarantee it.
