For 500 Yen — as opposed to a typical 2600 Yen for a full game — Famicom Disk owners could take in a game they didn’t want, hand them to the store’s staff and choose another game they’d rather have instead. Using the Disk Writer, the store would then take your disk and hook it up with a master cartridge containing the new game.  The original game would be wiped and the new one would take its place; just like that, a fresh game was purchased for far less than the standalone option.  [X]
