At least make sure to spell "Honnor" the right way

That guy ruins original Konamis to replace the rom with something else and print a new label on it...
Once in a while he sells the original ROM chips... I wonder what drives him to polute the Konami cartridges with fake stuff...

Though, King's Valley gold exists... It's a gathering of fan made stages by some japanese magazine... Konami is famous for their weird English...

Really couldn't care less if someone butchers carts to put something more 'desirable' / sought after / whatever inside. But the guy should be more upfront as to what exactly he's selling - original cart, ROM replaced with EPROM or Flash chip, maybe replacement circuit board (probably not).

Why you'd do this with Konami SCC's, is a riddle to me though. Question Unless you mod it into a Flash SCC somehow, most original Konami SCC's fetch decent prices regardless of exact title. And a fake Solid Snake isn't worth more than a real Nemesis 2 for example.

Just advertise as such: no prob. Sell without mentioning as if it's an original item: BAD. Evil (most of us will know by now, but that won't hold true for every Marktplaats visitor).

I did email this guy about metal gear some time ago. In the reaction I got from him then he was very honest about it and told me the cartridge wasn't a real original.

If you look closer you'll notice the label doesn't have rounded corners. Instead the label is completely square. Anyhow, if he is honest about it, it would be somewhat okay. No idea why it isn't mentioned in the ad itself.
