It was one of the slightly more expensive SFC games I got so far, around 5000, maybe 5500 yen. At the time I got it it seemed like most yahoo auctions, mercari etc. was around 8000-11000 yen (which is generally more than I am willing to pay), so I was mostly happy when I found it for that price in a physical shop, but it seem like there is a copy for 6000 yen on yahoo auctions right now, so I guess it was just bad timing. Anyways they had 3 copies in the shop,so I don’t think it is super rare or anything.
Yeah, the sony CRT has the direct playstation rgb multi input, but no normal rgb21 input, which means that I had to get a converter cable in order to plug most of my consoles in, ironically including the PS2. It does have two d-sub (component) inputs, and 2 (or 3, can’t check right now, at work) s-video inputs on the back, so plenty of other connections. I picked it up on yahoo auctions for essentially the price of postage (around 3000 yen), mostly happy with it so far, although I’ve used it even more for watching old anime through a ps3 hooked up to one of the d-sub inputs (and some laserdiscs through the s-video) than games. I guess this conversation belongs more in the hardware thread, but oh well.
