Also the box of the multiplayer cable.... Never seen that before. Can someone please upload some of the photos to the wiki and/or generation-msx.nl?

Apparently multiplayer cable is even more non-existing than EC-700.

I'll make a good photo set of that multiplayer cable + box by end of this year. I actually thought that I made so already long time ago...

See https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSX-KONAMI-MULTIPLAYER-CABLE-ONLY-B... for some images that could be used in the Wiki.

So, you spend just that and you'll have an empty box.
Sounds like a win win deal.

Also carton holder for the cable is missing from that box.

It's quite odd box actually. Like there would have been first a plan to put the cable to that plastic bag seamed inside box. But after all cable was placed in a white carton holder which covers whole inside of the box (and that bag is still there, but hidden under carton without use anymore).

No, I'm not the seller for this auction.

Clearly the cable was originally meant to support more games than just F1 Spirit 3D Special.

The text on the box says マルチプレイヤーケーブル which translates to Multiplayer cable. It mentions MSX, MSX2 and MSX2+, and makes no reference that I can see to the only published (MSX2+) game that supports it.

1500 USD for an MSX2, probably a pretty rare one, but nevertheless a ridiculous price:

By the way, the prices of this seller's other items are pretty exuberant too :p

Also the box is not a Konami box, its a Panasoft box (like Ashguine 1) so probably the cable was released by Panasoft with the collaboration of Konami like they did with F1 Spirit 3D Special, which is so far the only game known that can use the cable.

And yes, im the seller of this but of course i don't expect anyone to pay that for an empty box... Wait, i know someone who paid more than 5000 euro for the box and manual of Tetris for Megadrive, but that's a different thing.
Im only waiting for the proper offer, same than for MG2 sample, Nemesis 2 and Salamander betas.

That would indeed explain the box being different than other Konami boxes... Maybe that is how it went with the release of this cable. Very rare item anyway.

Well, ummm.. what can I say ? Typo ? LOL!
And I don't mean 8245 vs 9245.
