The leaked CE is now being made into carts. Is this a problem?

It's a sheer miracle if they got it to work on a cartridge. Even Prophet's Guile, for all its simplicity, was broken in several ways when someone tried to put it on a cartridge. If nothing else, it'll probably suffer from that black screen glitch at some point in the story. Has to be an utter and complete ripoff.

I'm rather curious as to who the $95 goes to.

I came across this gem while searching for books on Chrono Trigger available in U.S. libraries: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/chrono-trigger-jesse-russell/1112189510. It is described as "High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!" It's also for sale on several South African domain sites for a few hundred rand.

Such Wikipedia printouts are often collected and sold for exorbitant prices by fly-by-night on-demand publishers, appearing as legitimate books. At one point it was considered as a library resource and given a brief catalog record (http://www.worldcat.org/title/chrono-trigger-crimson-echoes/oclc/855743436). I suspect the library later learned that this book was just a collection of freely-available Wikipedia articles.

Well black market thugs like that probably aren't going to give something valuable for that $95, so it's not really making money off Kajar Labs' work so much as it's selling someone an amalgamation of crap on a cartridge.
