oh great, rom hacks are being sold for higher prices now.
oh you mean people are trying to sell it. that means it's going to fail miserably and people are forced to adjust the price of the thing they're selling to something more accessible! read: lower prices. many favor lower prices.
US$5 is acceptable for selling your physical copy of the game or console you accuse emudevs of "ruining" btw. just in case you sellers/collectors are reading this thread. you both are quite the same actually.

Come on, Pokémon Cock Version is an important cultural artefact. It provides a unique window into the minds of teenage boys who, despite knowing nothing about sex, are nonetheless obsessed with it.

You're underestimating how retro market goes these days: it's all random, do you know how much on YAJ last Baruusa no Fukushuu for x68k went?

130'000 JPY

Now you may ask: what the hell is Baruusa no Fukushuu? Well, that's the point.

Wasn’t that Zainsoft’s last game, right before they went out of business? That probably gives it some street cred.

Emulation does not ruin the value of a physical object. In the opposite it may raise the chance that it gets into the hands of genuine collectors, and not of hobbyists those only want e.g. to play their favorite arcade game again and trash the machine into e-waste when it breaks because they have no knowledge or interest in repair to preserve it as a historical artifact. Emulation even may help to prevent the original from wearing out by repeated use. Only sinister minds who intend to cause forced shortage by this in hope to increase value of their own copy may claim that emulation ruins the price (by keeping more original specimen intact), but this argument is pervert.

Returning to the original topic, I must correct R. Belmont: though I did add a uPD78214 disassembler to MAME, the present 78K/II CPU core is nothing more than a skeleton for ROM loading. (The NEC 78K family consists of several related but mostly binary-incompatible microarchitectures with a somewhat confusing history; none of them have been properly emulated yet.)
