Game collection sells for $1.2 million
French collector's eBay listing for full sets of games from Famicom to Dreamcast includes more than 7,000 items.
A massive game collection with comprehensive collections from 22 different systems was up for grabs over the weekend, as a French collector's eBay auction sold for more than $1.2 million.
The compilation from user collectors_king, which spanned the Famicom and Sega Master System to the Sega Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube, sold for €1 million ($1.23 million). The listing stated each console had a full set of every game sold for it as well as the system itself, and the manifest covered more than 7,000 total items.
Each individual item in the collection, which ranged from the well known, such as Super Mario Bros. for the Famicom, to the harder-to-find, such as the Virtual Boy's Virtual Bowling, cost an average of about $170 as of the final bid.
