To be fair it was released in small numbers for AES. That always bugged me. You could build a house out of KOF96 carts, why not make more slugs too?

Edit - removed bitchy comment about getting dates wrong.

True, but it is amazing that he got the release date of the game and (if I’m being a nitpicking fudgepacker) the NGH wrong. It looks like an example of a collector that has the game because ‘it is rare’ rather than actually showing an interest in the actual game or hardware itself.
I'd cut him some slack. Who knows what being on national tv is like. Hell I was on a local news segment once and I was nervous as shit.

Don't be pedantic, mmj. National television, and he seemed totally comfortable, didn't stutter or say "uh or um" over and over like some do. He may have been off a year on a date here or there, but I thought he did great.

I already apologised but sure, I‘ll admit I jumped to a conclusion too quickly that it was another self appointed YouTube collector ‘expert’. There’s a lot of those about spreading misinformation about games they know nothing about.

This BBC segment wasn’t aimed at hardcore cell dweller nerds, it was light touch for the public. I remember being on live tv and in the moment / panic saying the wrong thing as well. In that spirit, I think Fraser did great.

The Japanese Metal Slug 1 AES is worth 20,000 pounds, now?

I actually think that's pretty low. There were some sales in the past couple of years in the $60k+ range.
I think you're mixing it up with the US version.

never heard about a MS going for 60k+
