I was wondering if anyone has or saw "sample" copies of Konami's Contra.

Metal Gear 2,Pennant race 2,Quarth, Gradius 2, F1 spirit 3D.

Hi everybody ! How are you ?

I am interested in msx samples. Do you know what are the rarest samples, where do we find them and have you pictures of samples ?
Talk about this with you would be a pleasure for me Smile

Hi Mathieu,
recently I bought a batch of Konami / Sony cartridges. Two of them, "Dorodon" and "Chess" have a sticker with "SAMPLE" on it. I wonder now, if these are especially rare or otherwise special.

The MG2 sample cartridge has a huge price.

And then, when they bought it, they come to realize it's not even a game, but only both intro demos and a splash screen. They'll probably feel beeped in the beep Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

There is a demo of Quarth in a Disk Station release. I think it is 12 or 13.
I wonder if there were more demo versions from Konami in no cartridge format.

Not that i have seen; all shop demos i have seen of konami were carts as well. I did see some wildly differing photo's in reviews/ previews but I'm guessing those were just photos. The photo's of Hinotori are actually very nice; wouldn't mind to see that prerelease version. And the levels in king's valley 2 differed quite a bit or in some tweaks so those would also be nice to see...

Hi Manuel,
yes for sure.
@pabliris: Yes, the "SAMPLE" Sticker on my cartridges looks very similar to this one you linked.
