Why would anyone buy this, especially for that price? It was rejected by the VGA!

seller must be a marketing expert with a diploma in "how to scare away potential customers".

I actually think it's factory sealed. i told jofinn on NA to revise his description as it's certainly not very attractive the way he's presented it.

Honesty is a virtue. I'd buy from the guy no problem.

Where did these zeldas come from? I see them everywhere but when I bought mine I waited in huge lines and mine had a vertical seal.

If it has ventholes it's factory sealed. It's not possible to replicate the ones on Zelda 64 because they cover almost the entire shrinkwrap.

people dont know that OOT was sealed 3 or 4 different ways lol.

jofinn's copy IS factory sealed but nobody wants to mess with this stuff. Everybody expects the popular versions!

Man, I was screwed so bad it is actually humorous.

So I BIN this auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=300269814596

Which, from the description sounds like a easy snag.

I received it today and it was packed awesome, totally great job. Except:

1. The plastic wrap is gone
2. The case is cracked in several places
3. The PS Sticker Strip at the top is not only split (aka opened) but taped on to the top of the game with scotch tape.

Honestly sellers...W...T...F...lol...

Did so before this post. I'm actually giddy and laughing from the whole thing because it is so retarded. Did he think he would get away? I mean, I only mention the packing job because he just wasted minutes of his life carefully packing up a piece of crap (well, a MIB MVC is not exactly crap...but still, MIN + Sealed = Beat to Hell + Used?)

Man, where is my camera...it's unreal.

You'd be surpised how many amazing finds you get from people who don't have pics. I myself dont have a camera half the time, and my wares are A-mazing. Some of my best deals come from peeps with good feedback and relatively thoughtful descriptions.

I thought a high 90 feeback seller who said MINT and Factory Sealed couldn't be too far off. LOL 2 Me.

Most likely it's a Canadian version. I believe Walmart in Canada got the CE of Zelda and it came with a second French language manual which resulted in a slightly heavier package. That would also explain the different seal as the distributor had to re-shrink them after the second manual was inserted.

Those are legit Rarebucky. He has hundreds of these that he found. They are just some international release with different seals thats all.

My guess is that they contain some sort of foreign manual as well. Some sort of difference in the U.S copies and those definatly.
