The New Street Fighter 2 Cart Is On FIRE!

Well, only if you decide to play it. 

Turns out that playing this cartridge on an actual SNES could cause it to ignite. This is stated in fine print at the bottom of the product page. Some people are upset that most of them never even saw this before ordering. Here's the warning:

WARNING: Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire. The SNES hardware is deemed a vintage collectible, so please exercise extreme caution when using the Product and make sure there is fire extinguishment equipment nearby. Use of the Product is at the sole risk of the user. The Product is sold “as is”.  Neither iam8bit, Inc. nor Capcom Co, Ltd. make any representation or warranty, express or implied, of any kind, including any warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, or that the Product is safe to use, and iam8bit, Inc. or Capcom Co, Ltd. shall have no liability for damage to property or persons arising from use of the Product. Nintendo of America is in no way associated with the release of this Product.

The game costs $100 and comes in Ryu Red or Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green. The version you get is completely random. 

 Iam8bit responded to customers via twitter with this message: 

We're only selling a cartridge. We can't be responsible for the state of the hardware it is being played on

Let's be honest, nobody is buying this to play it, and I'm sure the people actually complaining weren't even planning a purchase. Hell, I'd think that self ignition would be a cool upgrade to the common SNES cartridge. Why do an HD remaster when you can give it the power of a god?!

Ok, I'm done. 

And I love you.
