      Unfortunately I didn't get any games with it. I saw a few boxes games on ebay going for $800+. That price seems pretty absurd. Do you have any idea of the going price for boxed and loose cartridges?

Some odd things happen when you get past the standard floating point precision. Eventually it started beeping and I shut it off. I tried the coloring program and it works great.
