Interesting. Has one of these ever popped up before?

Yes, it seems to be from the same run http://junkerhq.net/Snatcher/sample98images.html

I wonder if it's still playable. Surely after 21 years the dye would have started to break down.

Well, CDs do last a long time. Every CD I own from the 90's still works, not to mention my music collection with dozens from before 1990 that all work without any data loss whatsoever. If stored properly it's probably completely fine. Hell, even my 30+ year old floppy disks still work perfectly because of good storage.

But you're referring to regular, pressed discs, right? This sample disc, as far as I can tell, is a burned CD-R which will eventually be unusable assuming it isn't already. I suppose if it were vacuum sealed it could last much longer, but I doubt that they've done that.

Wow and only $17,500!

I might see if they have a second so I can buy both. One for me and one for my Butler, Higgins. He likes Snatcher too.

Apart from the late-80's music collection, I'm talking about discs my family has burnt and/or lent discs from friends. A lot of these copied discs are various brands from '90 and '91 and still work. High quality recorded CD-Rs can potentially last past 30-60 years according to a bunch of shit I've read over the years. Of course the brand and quality of CD is important to consider. Recorded discs last much longer than unrecorded, I found that out the hard way.

I may have just been very lucky, so my experience is mostly meaningless in relation to this Snatcher disc. Let's just hope it's a high quality CD-R and was stored very well. Even stored properly the dye can naturally degrade faster in shittier quality discs.

So basically this post is pointless. Isn't that fun.
