Haunted Nintendo system

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

Check this out - somebody claiming that the NES he picked up at a thrift store is a haunted medium of a dead kid. He claims that when he plays the game, he hears whispering - it even goes as far to toy with him during intense parts of the game by pausing it!

Here's the full text of the auction if it gets taken down sometime soon.


Quote:
eBay Staff: This auction is not a 'joke' and is intended to be completely serious in nature, as far as my personal experiences are concerned.


I've been an eBay seller in the field of vintage games for close to a year.

I've exchanged hundreds of video game related items, new and used, and still do till this day, but I have never experienced anything like this or even remotely similar.

I don't feel threatened by this, supernatural or whatever it may be, but I do not feel exactly comfortable with it either.

Up for auction is what I would call a haunted, Vintage, Video Game System, The Nintendo NES.

I don't really like using the word 'haunted' when describing this, considering the first thing you would think about is something from a horror movie, but I really can't come up with another way to explain it.

There is a local thrift store here in Brooklyn, NYC, that I've been doing business with for some years now.

About a month and a half ago I made one of my visits to the shop and found this '80s Nintendo System.

When I purchased this Unit I asked the owner of the shop about who brought the System in, and what he actually told me was that a gentleman had donated it that same morning and said "It was just sitting in his attic", and according to him, it supposedly belonged to his son who passed away years ago.

At first I thought the guy was just joking with me like he usually does, so I really didn't think much about it at the time.

Unfortunately, that's all I know about the background of this system. I do not know any specifics about anything else as far as the previous owner is concerned.

I went back there about 2 weeks ago to try to find out more since what has been happening, but he doesn't know anything else.

But I do know something is not so right with this.

As far as technical functioning, the Nintendo System has its occasional 'blinking' screen if a game is dirty, like any other Nintendo System, but for the most part it functions pretty well.

However, that's not what I mean about something not being right with this...

I brought this System home, and on the first night of playing, about 10 minutes into the game, I began hearing sounds similar to human voices, mumbling to the background music of the television.

Naturally I thought it may have been static or something to that effect, or maybe it somehow interfered with a truck driver's CB Radio System, so I didn't pay much attention to it.

But it continued through-out the entire time I was playing, stop for a minute or two, then start again. It got to the point where I went really close to the TV, I paused the game to try to hear it a little better, but then it would get silent. When I would unpause it, there it would go again.

I know it sounded like there was a conversation going on but I couldn't make out any of the words.

I have my beliefs but I've never really been one into believing so much about Spirits and Crossover-Communication, but repeating the conversation I had with the guy in the shop wasn't helping at all. And until this day, I go back there and this man still sticks to the same exact story.

To my knowledge, there is no technical problem with any vintage Nintendo Gaming System that causes any of these 'symptoms'.

Since owning this System, I've experienced hearing sounds of mumbling and laughing in the background music of different games (all sounding Exactly the same and all on numerous occasions).

On 3 separate occasions I've had the game 'Pause' by itself, without having my finger anywhere near the 'Start' button of the controller, and the really suspicious thing about it was the fact the timing of the Pause always happened to be during an intense moment of a game, as if the intentions were made for me to lose.

I even tried different controllers, which I've sold on eBay, thinking it may have been some type of controller glitch with the originals... and yet still have the same exact things happen.

Every time I power this unit on is like getting ready for something new to happen.

And not only with me. I've invited close friends and family members over, and some but not all have witnessed something strange happen, like the one time the 'Arrow icon' on the Main Options screen of a game actually moved down to 2 Player Mode, all while the controller was out of my hand.

I've had some of my friends accuse me of purchasing this Unit from a Novelty store for the sake of pulling pranks, which I doubt even exists in the first place.

It has gotten to the point where my Fiance never lets me turn the System on when she's in the house and I have friends that refuse to even play a game with me.

Even my cat won't go anywhere near this System, unless she's 5 feet away and hesitating to sniff at it, and not only that, she's been running back and forth through the house in the middle of the night during the past few weeks, and that's something she's never done in the entire 8 years that I've owned her.

I sincerely believe there may be some form of strong connection or attachment between this system and its previous owner.

The reason I am listing this... to be honest it's starting to freak me out, as well as the people around me. I don't feel threatened, I just don't understand it and I'm not exactly comfortable with keeping this in my home.

So, at the request of friends and loved ones, I'll be going my separate ways with this system, regardless if it's an actual supernatural presence or everyone is just being paranoid. I'll be putting this unit up for 1 Penny without a reserve price, if you're the high bidder, the Unit and everything with it will be yours

It comes with its 2 original controllers, the original Zapper Gun, a copy of the Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt game, along with its original AC-adaptor which came with black electric tape wrapped around it, but works without any problems, and a naki Rf-switch, which is everything needed to power-up and play.



Below are photos of the actual 'Haunted' System and accessories.







The System will come in the exact same condition from when I purchased it. There was some dust, but I cleaned that off. I have it already packaged and will ship the next day from receiving payment.

*** PLEASE NOTICE ***

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee what you will or will not experience with the System. Obviously, if this is what myself, as well as others believe it to be, the supernatural is something completely beyond my control. Do not bid if you do not acknowledge and agree with this.

We welcome your questions and we will answer them to the best of our ability.

On Mar-10-05 at 10:52:55 PST, seller added the following information:

A very nice person recently emailed me and asked if I felt the type of presence with this Nintendo was Evil. Honestly, I don't believe that its Evil, I never really felt any type of negative vibes. I'm not a suspersticious person at all and I consider myself very level headed, If I had to put it in words... when looking at this System, I get a strong 'feeling' like it's actually looking right back at me. It's a distracting energy of a feeling like I'm not alone, but not in a way that I feel I'm in some kind of harm or danger.

On Mar-13-05 at 12:45:54 PST, seller added the following information:

This just in, someone just brought to my attention that in the first photo of the Nintendo Console, it looks like there's a form of a portion of a face in the photo. It was pointed out to me right in the center of the Nintendo where the cartridge slot is, and below it, is a shading, it somewhat resembles and eye and a mouth, what do you think? I'm not exactly sure so I'm not making any definite claims, but I'm getting more chills thinking about it. These photos have came out not so crisp, but they haven't been altered in any way.

On Mar-13-05 at 16:32:48 PST, seller added the following information:

I received word from fellow eBayers that our Unit has been mentioned on GA and NC radio stations -- thank you, hopefully word will reach those with expertise in this field. Please contact us if you've heard about this System through other media sources.

In the past people have acted like their box contained jewels or collectibles by giving hints, crap like that. We bought one at work to see what the hell was in it. Paid 25 bucks between 7 or us. Box was said to have a value of at least $250. It turned out to be some old crap magazines, a few buttons and spools and an old wooden spool. We complained ot course and he claimed the mags were worth $250 to the right collector. Funny none the less and a for a few bucks we got to expose the fraud. He since left ebay and am sure has a new name.

This is a great story to jack the auction up.

It's up to 200 dollars. I can't believe some retard would spend 200 on an NES system.

He probably paid 5 bucks for it and is going to pull a 200 dollar profit. If the kid had any conscious, he would give the profit to the salvation army.

In this guy's defense, do you seriously think he would risk his perfect feedback to make a few extra bucks and tarnish his ebay status? He does have almost 200 feedback at 100%.

So his postive feedback percent goes to 99.5% and is there any way to confirm that the box is not haunted. The buyer gets the box, it freezes up on him due to dust or a minor electrical problem and the kid is convinced it is hautned. Not to mention the fact that if you believe you will hear voices when you play it, your mind might trick you into thinking you are. Kinda like after watchign a scary movie as a kid and everything you heard was the axe murderer outside your window. So yes I think he would risk it on something that you will never be able to confirm.

Also if you check his other feedback you find he purchased a NES system recently. Probably the same one he is now selling with the controllers that he also bought recently.

The thing there is no way of proving him wrong. If someone neg repped him, his rep score would drop down to about 99.5, which won't scare anyone away.

If he really wanted to get rid of it without making a buck, why not just list it as free and ship it out or throw it away, its just a gimmic to get more money IMHO.

I wonder if you bought this system from him and when you get it home to plug it in, the kid comes out of the T.V. to annihilate you like the girl from the "The Ring" could your family sue.
