I was surprised to learn that they still sell these top loaders in Japan and are just now ceasing production. The NES I have has long since stopped production, and I'd rather have a new console, even if it has to be modified, than buy one off of ebay where you don't know what your getting. The only thing I have to trade is high quality home made DVD shows. The Two TMNT series, Real Ghostbusters, Alf, etc. Heh, the next generation in tape trading, DVD trading . If anyone can help, Thanks!
