Own a Glowing NES Cartridge: Glider Special Edition

RetroZone Glider NES Special Edition Glowing

Brian Parker of RetroZone is at it again, reinventing the NES homebrew scene with innovative new products. This time he’s selling a special edition Glider NES game cartridge on eBay that, aside from being a previously unreleased title, will glow while it’s being played.

And heck, the box glows as well:

Only 13 hours of the auction left, and it’s already at $105 (US). So get it while it’s hot. Of course, if you don’t want to spring for the special edition, the regular edition goes for $42 on the RetroZone site, although it’s temporarily out of stock.

Glider appears to be a NES adaptation of the popular Macintosh title of the same name. Its graphics are even black and white, similar to the Mac (although this version benefits from more than 2 colors — white or black).

And now, I leave you with an image of the Glider SE cartridge while it’s not emitting light. Happy bidding.

    An NES that glows is nothing new. Back in the day our NES would often glow but that’s because were smoking…well, never mind.

    Wow. Congrats on whomever won the four cartridges available for $250 a piece.

    Why yes, I would LOVE to pay a ridiculous sum of cash for a god-awfully fugly tacky cartridge that not only illuminates the entire room but has a crappy port of one of the crappiest games of all time! Where do I sign!? ¬_¬

    Also, the manual fails to light up. Come now Brian, that’s bad form!
