The fact the seller gives no info about the game is a bit conspicuous if you ask me. My guess would be it is just the same game...

that offer has been on eBay for a very long time. I think the seller is a little early. Prices for good MSX stuff have been going up, up and up over the years.In 5 or 10 years that price might be reasonable.Makes me wonder: are MSX fans hoarding MSX stuff like an investment, like "lets buy that 10th Vampire Killer because I think I can sell it for 5 times the price in a few years"

I doubt hoarding is really going to pay. In all honesty I suspect most sales are going to people (like me) in their late 40’s or early 50’s who grew up with MSX when they were kids. We are buying the stuff the generation above us is getting rid of, that generation was using MSX when they were in their 30’s or 40’s but are now too old (or sadly dying). When that last thing happens to the people buying now, who will still want al this. Surely there will be interest but my guess is not as much as there is now, and prices will go down imho.

True. I've seen this happening with 80's Lego sets already. Ten years ago prices were on the rise, nowadays they are fading away. They're not getting worthless, it's just that demand declines.

I have that same Salamander version. We dumped the cart some time ago with friend of mine -> the ROM contents were confirmed similar with the normal version.
