And as an official product (even though not licensed by SEGA, how could that be anyway, on a no longer supported hardware of their catalogue...), it cannot be compared to opportunistic bootleggers items you can find on the net. $40 for a repro, you must be kidding... Who could be satisfied to buy that and add it to its "collection" ??? Unless you build a bootleg collection... (do some people do that ???). There is no craftsmanship in those, not like a PCB or a toy... Just LAME photocopy work.


You keep telling yourself that. Craftsmanship? Come on, it's a plastic case and cart with some printed paper and a sticker.

This is a repro - anything produced 20 years after a system exits production is going to be.

Not quite clear why anyone other than a super completionist would waste their money on this.

I don't know... new art for a start ?

Someone who does not have the original game. This is a new official version of the original game.
Not a copy.
But two worlds collide in this kind of conversation, and cannot understand each others.

For a game that hasn't been legally available in a long time, this is a licensed product that gives some people a legitimate way to play a game again. Especially for those who live in countries that have far stricter guidelines regarding copyright law, it's important to have options like this. If you don't see the point, fine. No need to rain on everyone else's parade.

Please use the quotations right, as I've never said that myself :wink:
I'm just saying the opposite of that actually :lol:

Not sure what happened, but the quote tags were out of order. Fixed.

The thing that bothers me with this repro is this disclaimer from the play-asia page:

- Operation with genuine Mega Drive may not work normally.
- Operation with other Mega Drive compatible system is not guaranteed and sound quality may be different from genuine MD.

They did the same to me after charging me like 5 days ago. Which pisses me off. You knew when you charged me if you had enough or not.

As I had already mentioned in the thread, lots of horror stories about repros out there. There is NO guarantee any such cart will be properly manufactured. Buyer beware.

I did not get it either.
Here is the answer from PA about the availability on June 20th :
Quote:
We regret to inform you that we won't
receive more stock of Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer. :( The 'Expected to
ship: Jun 20, 2019' means that the limited stock will arrive on June 20. We
assure you that we tried our best to source it out, unfortunately, no one
can provide it to us. Hoping for your kind understanding.


It's not clear in their answer if anyone will get it from them.

Maybe some of us here did not get rejected ?

Oh well, I guess I'll be buying the original further down the road.

I got the same message and you know what... I'm actually happier this way. A krikzz product, a Sega Mini with M2 Darius, or an FPGA Analogue Mega all sound like a better way to spend my cash. :)

I did buy that Retro-bit data east collection with the translated Magical Drop 2 (the patch is complete, but currently unavailable to download due to a licensing agreement). I'll probably use it more on the Super NT since it was said repros should be safe on it. It does work on the regular SNES, though. I like that it came with some cool pins too.

I too found other means of playing GleyLancer on real and FPGA hardware. I love that cheesy voice. "Stick to it and believe in your power!". There's also a nice dual language fan translation (with English and the original JP text) available.

I got the same message. Like Turrican, I actually don‘t mind all that much. I played through the game back when it was released on Wii VC and found it good but not great. As nice as it would have been to own a physical copy, I preordered mainly to show there‘s a market for re-releases like that and to encourage similar ones in the future (hopefully including Eliminate Down or the Battle Manias).
