What is This Sticker For N64 Controller Pak?

Post#1 » Thu Apr 09, 2015 9:00 am

Hi. Inside an original (which looks OEM cause it's not in a box but was in a small plastic bag) N64 Controller Pak there's a sticker with a computer circuit in it. Where do you stick that to and what's it for?

Thanks in advance. God bless, Rev. 21:4

This looks like a security barcode sticker, basically anti theft and has most likely been put there by a retailer.

Thanks. That's the most high tech barcode sticker I've seen (what is the circuitry for though, can't a barcode (using an iPhone app) be read even without that circuitry inside? Thanks.

Do I stick it onto the Controller Pak?

The circuitry is used for anti-theft measurements, it's quite common in retail. The barcode on the sticker has no relation to the circuitry, you won't be able to read out the data that way. Just throw it away already and get it over with ;)

The sticker makes the alarm in a shop go péét péét péét péét when you try to steal an item with one attached to it. The sticker gets deactivated at the cash register when you buy the item. You can frequently find them hidden somewhere in or on jewel cases, sometimes under the price sticker. Sometimes they also look like on the picture below...
