That's not relevant. Swapping a used pin connector for a used pin connector defeats the purpose. You don't buy another used NES when yours starts blinking.
The main reason I'd like for these to be made is because I want to mod an N64 with custom cooling and I want it to have a new pin connector. But of course I'd have to buy a NIB N64 for that... which costs hundreds.
You don't? I did. I found a lot with a barely used NES in it and swapped its pins for mine and well both mine and the newer with the older set both work right away(odd I know.) I don't trust those new pins, read stuff about cheap metals, overly tense so you can't lock the game in, get dirty very easy, corrode/blacken far easier. They don't give me much confidence for long period usage.
On the N64 topic, there's no need as they're very solidly built, and you can get a replacement N64 so cheap you could just part it out, and that's likely what business people think as it would cost them a bit to make the things so the profit window would be very poor to bother.
