Huge Collection of Video Games brought more than $1.2 on eBay

 

 

American courier services are sure to have their hands full after a huge sale of video games made more than $1.2m on eBay (which is roughly £770,430). The collection included every title ever released for Nintendo consoles as well as all games for the various Sega and NEC gaming platforms.

22 sets (amounting to some 7,000 video games) were sold according to reports by the Los Angeles Times. Some of the more valuable rare items in the collection include the Sega game ‘Go-Net and Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Gold for the Super Famicom, the Japanese release of the Super Nintendo.

Fairly unknown short-lived products such as the Nintendo Virtual Boy, which was only released in North America and Japan in 1995 before production was cancelled and discontinued the following year were also in the pack to give the collection a certain ‘specialist collector’s item’ feel.

The seller, Andre, a 32-year-old Frenchman told how he regularly buys and sells games, but this particular collection is by far the biggest he has ever sold. He continued to reveal that one of his personal missions was to collect all available titles for Sega, Nintendo and NEC gaming systems.

From this impressive purchase Andre is owed exactly $1,230,699.99 (and of course the $1,230 shipping fee!). Looks like Andre better source a fast and effective courier service to take good care of that collection!
