I'll be first.

 

I think it's the real deal. Why? I don't really know, except the elaborate set up required if it's a joke.

 

Isn't this how it happened:

 

Air Raid was listed with an Atari set. Seller was contacted to let him know he had a very rare item. Seller lists Air Raid cartridge. Seller then finds Air Raid box after finding out this was an even more rare item and possibly even the only documented one. Seller ends the cartridge auction after notifying bidders and relists boxed game. Oh and at some time, perhaps much earlier, seller fabricates a very convincing box to go with the game.

 

Sounds like a lot of time and money invested on an April Fool's joke.

 

Editted because of slow typing.

 

(OK, so I'm not first. It's only because I'm a slow typist)

 

:D

It looks like we have our prime suspect. Do you have something you would like to get off your chest, jahfish? Or should I say TANMAN!

Yep, you and Bubbleope both know right? :thumbsup: :ponder:

 

 

I know who it is really. I'm not telling.

 

Actually I was PMing him earlier today and he is clueless as well.

I dunno who it is but I think it's fake. An awesome fake, but fake.

As I posted in the other thread, for my amusement I did an IP search for each of Tanman's posts and they do not match any other AA members nor are they randomly generated.

If the pictures that Tanman posted were taken with that camera, then presumably he does! It's a very common camera, so that doesn't really mean much anyway.

What an incredibly boring April Fools joke if it is. New found Prototypes, or homebrews are awesome Fools day gags.

 

Who gives a crap about a dumb looking box?

There have been actual 7800 game releases on April Fools Day. Not everything around this time of year is a fake.

exactly. Last year it was Bob's fantastic Jr. Pac-Man homebrew port.

 

by that metric, this goofy looking fake box is kind of a let down.

It's not terribly hard to use a proxy to surf the web to hide an IP address.
