View Full Version : Wanted: NR Reader
03-31-2004, 09:26 AM
I want to buy a Nintendo NR Reader. PAL version would be the best (I was told there is a region check even on those units) but I don't care much... If someone has one to sell or has seen one around... thanks :-)

Your'e out of luck! these nr readers are for developers/press only!..

Well on the old board, these things showed up a lot ( i think 3 or 4 times )
Just be aware that the NR Reader don't play commercial games. Just NR discs.
I wouldn't call them "discs" though. . .those POSs are for the hardcore only. . .you need the carts and the burners to do anything useful with em. . .why on Earth would you REALLY want one?! Actually, I could get ahold of a NTSC one. . .what's the price range? :D

Heh, this makes me think of that Jeff Chong guy or whatever his name was...
Hey wyte, any chance you could get a hold of a busted one for me (or at least its shell?)

Yes I know NR readers don't play real gamecube games just special NR-discs or whatever they are called. I have a couple of them already, I got them last year from ebay but they are very hard to find.
I'm interested in a NTSC one wyte if you can really get your hands on one... not sure about the price range but let me send you an offer by pm :-)

I wouldnt mind an NR as well if there's a couple going begging.

I have a PAL + NTSC NR-Reader...in the lovely green
Just trying to get some disks to use on it
I have a freind who has a NTSC NR-Reader and I am sure he needs some £...but it didn`t come cheap to him so don`t know what he will sell it for.
Will ask and re-post when he gets back to me....
Hey "MAD"....if you don`t get one....would you contemplate selling/trading on the disks?

Thanks VA, keep us informed!

Best part is T is he is only across the water
04-02-2004, 06:31 AM
Do you have ICQ/MSN at all rather than back and 4 wards here?
04-02-2004, 06:31 AM
Marvelous, my Brother in Law lives in Bristol, and failing that, it is indeed just over the bridge!
Sorry, didnt see that post
04-02-2004, 06:36 AM
No MSN/ICQ? T?
04-03-2004, 07:04 AM
Sounds good virtual alan, if your friend needs some £ and is ok to sell his NR I'm sure we can find a good deal!... You've got two NR ? Never thought of selling one? :smt040
About the discs, depending on the region (PAL/NTSC) of the NR Reader I get I might sell/trade the discs of the other region...
04-03-2004, 07:10 AM
I`m sad....I like duplicates :smt040
Tachikoma is thinking of my m8`s NTSC NR-Reader subject to an acceptable price. The advantage is that the sellr and buyer aren`t very far from each other.
Wouldn`t want to tread on Tachikoma`s toes as he was first in the Q.
If he is not interested say at the end of next week perhaps I can sort something out for you.
I am trying to work on a deal for 40 various NR-Reader disks but the woman concerned has a vague idea of what their worth could be despite me trying toput her off.
She sold one(don`t know which one)a while ago for $150 allegedly...didn`t see the auction but someone posted the one recently here and it was for an AKKLAIM sports game that was/is pretty lame.
She has some MGS+ V-Joe disks but don`t know what she will part with for those :smt011

Dont worry about me, if someone else wants it and has the cash, they can have it. They pop up every now and then so if this one goes I can wait, im in no big rush!

How jolly decent of you "T" :smt023
Do you want to ICQ/MSN me and we can chat?
04-04-2004, 10:00 AM
Thank you Tachikoma!
VA: I just added you to my ICQ contacts... 40 NR discs, that sounds really sweet, as long as they're 40 different games and not just different protos of the same one :smt033
04-06-2004, 04:34 AM
Mad appears to be doing the deal.
I`ll keep an eye open for any more.....but apparently WYTE may have 1
04-06-2004, 05:52 AM
Ok, thanks mate, I probably wont go for wyte's due to postage costs. But do keep me in mind if you do find any (or want to sell one of yours :smt023 )
04-06-2004, 06:03 AM
Probably won`t sell one of mine but will keep the feelers out for another 4 u
