You might get more money for it now, before the Darksoft CPS-1 multi becomes available though. If I haven't found one by the time the CPS-1 multi becomes available, I will probably have put my name down for one already. Just something to think about...
True. I wish I would have bought some SF2 and FF boards when they were selling for $20. The prices now have gone nuts. Especially when you consider that these should be two of the most common boards in existence as they were literally everywhere at one point.
Still, bootlegs don't attract the crazy prices (at least not yet).
Actually you most likely wouldn't be saving much money going Chinese. They ceased production years ago so supply is dry, I've noticed they sell for high amounts on the second hand market.
I wouldn't sell mine (CPS1) for less than $350 AU as it works great (onscreen menu, instant loading), gives me a handful of really expensive games that I can play on original hardware, and I would simply never be able to replace it due to them no longer being manufactured. The newer (Chinese) versions which are difficult to obtain sell for considerably more than that anyhow. End of the day it's still an original A and C board which sell for enough as is, let alone being combined with a custom B board.
