N64 Not for resale
What marks an NFR version of the n ormal version is usually just a sticker on the back of the cartridge that reads:
“”NOT FOR SALE – DEMO GAME ONLY“(NOT ONLY FOR SALE DEMO GAME).
Below is the warning “PROPERTY OF NINTENDO“(PROPERTY OF NINTENDO) with a serial number and a place to write business information.
NFR cartridges were not intended for sale. They served as “demos” for shops and had to be destroyed or returned to Nintendo. But these cartridges have sometimes had different fates and ended up in the hands of the players.
They have become a collective topic and their values differ depending on the game. Maybe now is the time to start one.
Some are very affordable, like the “Jet Force Gemini”, which costs 3550 dollars, and the “Excitebike 64”, while “1080 Snowboarding” flirts between 150 and 220 dollars. “”Yoshi Story “reaches between 170 and 260 dollars.
The gray version of the “Legend of Zelda – Majora’s Mask” cartridge is better because at best it can cost more than 500 dollars (with a little luck), but you have to count twice and some copies have reached 1700 dollars. The gold version also exists, but is much less valuable and not as popular as the gray version.
Count between 50 and 170 dollars for the cartridges listed below.
On the other hand, it takes anywhere from $ 250 to $ 380 to purchase the “Golden Eye” cartridge. There are two different NFR versions of Pokmon Snap. The difference is in the color of the cartridge on the front. There is a red and a black version.
The red version is worth around 105 dollars, the black version around 340 dollars. The hard-to-find black version only includes a demo of the first two levels, while the red box version is functionally identical to the commercial version.
With a completely monochrome front label that is fundamentally different from the retail version, this cartridge looks unique. Some elements of the demo are also different from the final version. It costs 300 dollars to have.
Above the PAL version
There are N64 Not for Resale games that only have an NFR sticker on the back. It is more difficult to identify as the stickers were only on the back and can be peeled off or worn.
