Actually this one happened to me just the other day. It isn't caused by turning your SNES on and off by the switch but by the power to the system. I have a SNES Kiosk and when I turn the Kiosk off it powers off the SNES. The first time I did this with Super Mario All-Stars + World powered on, my save got wiped!c0nfu53d wrote:

This one sprung from Nintendo being over carful in there SNES manuals. I can remember spending 5 mins as a kid turning my snes on/off rapidly to see what happened. Nothing. The most that will happen is you'll break the switch or burn out the SNES internal fuses (if your really unlucky) but you game saves will be intact
So anybody got any they would like to share?
As for a hoax, I remember the Resident Evil 2 Akuma Hoax in PSM years back. I actually went through and beat the entire game with the handgun and nothing! A month or 2 later they posted an apology that it was an April Fools joke.
