Million-Dollar Game Collection Sells on eBay

| 9 Jul 2012 15:50

A complete set of every Nintendo, Sega and NEC game ever released has sold for more than $1.2 million on eBay.

There are videogame collections, and there are videogame collections. This particular videogame collection includes full sets of titles across 22 different systems, including all games ever released on Nintendo home consoles from the Famicon to the GameCube, all games ever released on Sega systems and all games ever released on NEC systems. It's a hell of a thing , and it just sold on eBay for more than a million bucks.

I won't burden you with the complete breakdown of titles - there are more than 5000 games here, after all - but this package includes complete sets of games for the Famicom Cartridge, Famicom Disc, Virtual Boy, Super Famicom, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DD64, GameCube, Sega Master System Europe, Sega Master System Japan, Sega Mark 3, Sega Game Gear, Sega Megadrive, Sega 32X, Sega Mega CD, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, PC Engine Hucard, PC Engine Supergrafx, PC Engine CD, PC Engine Super CD, PC Engine Arcade CD, PC-FX and Pioneer Laseractive. Many of the sets are still factory sealed and even among those that have been opened, the seller wrote, "I had dozens of thousands of copies of those games in hands during the last 20 years, and i only kept, each time, the very best copies for my personal collection, so you can be certain you'd get the best condition possible."

The idea of a million dollar videogame collection selling on eBay sounds a little fishy, but the seller, "collectors_king," has a feedback score of 1792 and 99.8 percent positive feedback, which as I understand it is pretty good. Unfortunately for those of you with a million dollars in spare cash, an empty warehouse and a taste for obscure videogames, the deal for this thing was done yesterday, but you can still feast your eyes and drool at eBay.
