Bizarre.

It looks fake, but it's hard to be 100% sure. The thing that clinches it for me is the printed "Nintendo" on the disc. All of the albums distributed by Nintendo of American and Nintendo of Europe have the familiar stylized Nintendo logo, but this just has a plain "Nintendo" on the disc. That alone is very suspicious.

The entry is categorized as (and is linked to reviews of) the SNES game cart. Seems strange, doesn't it?

I can't find any reference to it, be it by name or the tags, GMC and Role Playing Game Series.

Mr. Saturn being so prominent makes me suspicious, since even though they did have a decent role in the game here and there, they were in no way main characters, only memorable.

I have found the original image the starman was used from. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=#ht_500wt_922

A poster which contains the image, the red text in the upper right corner, the role playing game purple badge.

I will just call this fake, he also filled it under the game series 3D Ultra Pinball.

I bet this is just the music from an old Zophar/Snesmusic SPC rip converted to mp3, or he ripped it himself.

Ha ha. Yeah fake. Probably a burned copy of Psi Rockin' seeing how it's a 2 disc deal. Plus if it was a genuine article it would fetch more than $80-$100. Funny how ANOTHER ones surfaced already:
