Thanks for this! I actually posted on the video and will just copy what I said there:
Quote
So, this lines up with what I'd heard through the grapevine about the listing being pulled. Through the CV wiki discord, someone posted a link to the GBAtemp forums topic regarding the disc listing. The post in question cites: "The item was sold outside of eBay to a private collector last night. The seller was fed up by attitudes from some people arguing and attacking him with false reports (copyright claims on parts of the code and music)." - https://gbatemp.net/threads/castlevania-resurrection-prototype-disk-listed-for-sale-online.586397/page-5

Sounds like what Mark said really ruffled the seller's feathers and the seller did take down the listing, but then turned around and sold it privately to a collector. I have no idea the validity of this information or post so take it with a grain of salt, but it sounds like the seller might have decided to circumvent legalities and just get their payday regardless. No idea what this means for releasing the ripped ISO to the public.

Oof. Interesting. I would’ve easily put up $1,000 for it, or traded some of my rare memorabilia that I have doubles of. Guess I’m too late.

Maybe one day we’ll see a demo of Akumajou Dracula for the ps3/x360 that was canceled as well

the only thing that interests me from Resurrection really is whether The Countess had a name or not

Very interesting indeed. Although to be honest, the gameplay itself appears to be only a notch above Curse of Darkness, the uniqueness & curiosity make it worth it.

If and when I come across a demo copy, rest assured it will be in my possession (within reason of course. I’m not spending $10,000 on a demo disc)

Interesting new development. I give your buddy credit for the follow-up.

I'm very curious as to whom this group that ripped demo copy might have been given to and then potentially distributed to the public by. I wonder if it's the French DC preservation site or some other game archival group.

I wonder if they had any cool ideas for implementing the VMU in the game.

Could have been useful for a map display, who knows. I used to love those little VMU's though. Such a cool feature.

Yes, and thank you  :-*

Yeah.... All this buzz made me wonder what IGA could've done if given a project for the Dreamcast. Ya know, if it had been more popular.
