Ones of the biggest game collections ever sells for a staggering amount
I bet you thought you had a fairly impressive games collection, didn’t you? I mean, mine’s certainly not going to break any records but it’s probably a fair bit about average, as I imagine is yours.
Now imagine you own every Sega system ever. Now imagine you own every game every released on those consoles. Now imagine you own every Nintendo system up until the GameCube, and every game every released up until that point.
So that’s every game ever made for the Sega Saturn, Megadrive, Mastersystem, Game Gear, Dreamcast, NES, SNES, Virtual Boy, N4, N64DD and Game Boy. Many of these games are in mint-condition, as well as a fair chunk being rare, contest-only titles that were never released for general sale.
Postage alone cost £793.11, that’s 1,000€ or 1229.80 American, so hazard a guess as to how much these all sold for. Go on.
No, higher than that.
Nope, you’re still cold.
Okay, I’ll tell you, this 22-system full-set bundle eventually sold for an absolutely staggering £793,331.10. That’s 999,999.99€, or $1,231,945.55.
The auction ended yesterday, the seller’s username quite aptly collectors_king, based in France, and is still visible for the time being.
