Protect yourself with our technical pro!

The most frequently copied games are rare games, RPGs, Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, and most populaires.La quality labels is very bad, but there are fakes almost identical so it is not the only thing to watch.
The best way to be sure of not having a counterfeit is to open the game with our tool kit available on our web page.

Cartridge  Super Nintendo SNES poor quality shinier label, reproduction is lighter some games even have screws to open just shoot. Besides that back the tape on the label are not the 2 numbers engraved into the sticky back of the game and some do not even mention the Nintendo about the game. When you look beneath the no tape the numbers engraved into the plastic, when you open the cassette Nintendo no mention of Nintendo on the board of the game.

Cartridge Nintendo 64the poor quality of most shiny label, reproduction is lighter, plus it back the tape on the label are not the 2 numbers engraved in tights and some do not even have the words Nintendo about the game. when you look below the cassette there are no numbers etched in the plastic or are the pine board, when opening the cassette Nintendo no mention on the Nintendo the board. Deplus The general look and feel are much more cheap lower quality and more the Nintendo seal of quality logo are not reflected in gold they are rather dull.

* SNES and N64 over time we have seen smugglers who were taking games such as NHL and changing the cassette housing for a label with embossed numbers and the same thing for games N64 change the plastic for the number under the game and the board dipped in the dye for browning.

CartridgeGameBoy Color and GameBoy Gameboy ADV poor quality shinier label, reproduction is lighter, is not found on the label before the tape number engraver and when we open the game Nintendo mention is not set in the board.

  CartridgeNintendo DS is much harder firstly the quality of the image reflected on the tights and the Nintendo seal off quality is not of the same quality. When were looking at the back of the game burning is not the same and often behind the numbers on the board of the tape are not aligned with the spaces. But there is virtually identical counterfeits is very difficult to differentiate. Here is a Youtube video that will give you more details for DS games that we think are the most difficult to recognize cartridges.

Cartridge Sega poor quality shinier label, reproduction is lighter. The general look and feel are much lower quality cheap. Then the color of the cartridge on board with time they are oxidized and changed color for bronze brown but usually fakes are white.
