    First Matte Sticker Sealed Gyromite Ever Offered at Public Auction

    Gyromite - Wata 6.0 A++ Sealed [Matte Sticker, First Production], NES Nintendo 1985 USA. Sealed?! Your eyes aren't lying to you, this game is indeed factory sealed! In fact, this is the very first sealed copy of any sticker variant black box title that we have ever offered at public auction. The matte sticker indicates that this copy of Gyromite was produced for the first production run of the title which was released at the first US test market for the Nintendo Entertainment System launch in Manhattan. Gyromite came as a pack-in title with the console at the launch, and, as collectors generally agree, it is odd to see a pack-in title that was never opened. We have heard that Nintendo only produced 100,000 units of this console set, making the possibility of finding sealed copies of this variant quite slim. This game was meant to be played with R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy) the robot, and, while R.O.B. is more fun to play with in theory than in practice, what kid could have possibly resisted playing the only game that R.O.B. knew how to play at the time?
