    Still horse shit until the prick can provide actual physical proof of the actual cart, and send it to someone in the community with the hardware to dump it.

    No cart = no dump = complete and utter horseshit.



    The thing is, he's shown 2 videos of "practically" the same thing now, but not once has he just pointed the camera down to show the MegaDrive with the BETA ROM inside. Just doing that, even for a second, would give us all a second thought and think, "wait a second, maybe he's not bull-shitting here". But until then, I'm not buying this story.

    I would love to see that happen, but it probably won't considering this person (is):
    A: Greedy and doesn't want to share.
    B: Doesn't know what they have.
    C: Doesn't know what to do with it.
    D: This is complete and utter fake and should not be taken into account BY ANYBODY.

    I would like to see a cart either for the Genesis or the European/Japanese Megadrive, or a ROM Dump but these people are too dumb to know what that is (maybe they just don't know of the online Sonic Community or something within that context) otherwise we'd have it by now.

    A side note, I remember reading an article/interview online with Yuji Naka saying that SEGA had lost a Proto of Sonic 1 and when showed pictures, he said they were of the lost prototype. This may be true, or not. I only read it somewhere.

    Yes… Apparently, they were planning to include it with (Sonic Jam, I believe), but they couldn't find it anywhere…

    On the artwork, I should try to remake that standing sprite… And those mountains…

    Crasher on SonicRetro seems to have already done that.

    I notice that in the pictures, there were some slightly smaller mountains… That aren't present in the video.

    A quote from me from Sonic Retro:

    I don't wish to dump the cart for the time being. Would a video showing me inserting the cart and performing a fresh boot up be sufficient?

    That would most definitely help. Any pictures would be nice also.



    So, he's willing to show more proof. At least that's something. I wouldn't expect too much though.

    EDIT: You know what? I've had my fun. I admit it, it's fake. Those of you who guessed MMF were correct. =P You gotta admit, it was a pretty good hoax xD


    Thanks for playing the game!

    Meh =P

    But another thing has come up!

    At 8:25, some new pictures appear of the beta. Members are asking for scans from the uploader. This looks genuine, but by no means he has the beta. Just a Japanese magazine with a couple of pictures.

    It has been trashed, poster was just someone pretending to be the youtube uploader.

    Also the videos are fake for so many reasons. It would be silly to have any doubt about that at this point.

    That makes more sense I pretty much know the video is fake but I don't understand why would someone do that and disapoint so many sonic fans?

    While I would understand why someone would make a fake and troll everyone, I wouldn't understand why he would admit it so quickly and easily.

    With that said, according to what I read there, Yuji Naka can't confim it's a fake, so there's at least one interesting point here: the multiple layers were at least very similar to this.

    That means somewhere out there there is a unreleased Sonic the Hedgehog 1 Prototype, where I don't know, but we need to find it!

    I lol'd

    It's kind of hilarious seeing how Sonic fans 'hound' shit. Creaming like it's real and then realising that it's not, then arguing with eachother about how it's not real, but then the idiots still saying it is. Then the dust settles and the topic gets locked.

    Somewhere there are 3 Prototypes/Betas… Trouble is, the cartridges are very small, and the world is very large. The cartridges are probably in the same landfill in Utah where they buried all the remaining unsold Apple Lisas…
