A video game collector from Paris, France has just sold his prized video game collection on eBay for a little more $1.2 million.
Included in the video game collection was every game ever made for the original Nintendo console, Super Nintendo system and Nintendo 64. Every game for the Sega Genesis and NEC video game systems was also in the collection.
The total amount of video games sold was 7,000. This amazing collection of video games includes 22 complete sets of consoles and games.
Andre, who did not give his last name lives in France and works in law, he has been selling video games for years but he has never sold a collection this big before.
At first Andre’s goals was to collect every single Nintendo, Sego and NEC system and game. However, after he achieved that goal he decided to try something even more difficult.
Power Seller College received this message from Andre, “I perfected some full sets by getting every title of them factory sealed, just for the challenge of it,” he said in an email. “Some titles are extremely hard to come by brand new when they’re 25 years old. Now that the mission is complete, maybe it’s time to move on.”
His collection also included the Sega Dreamcast and Nintendo Virtual Boy. The short lived Sega Dreamcast games were difficult to get, according to Andre but the hardest game to get was Go-Net which was made for the Sega Mega Drive or Genesisin its US name. There are only 2 Go-Net games in the entire world.
Andre still hasn’t received his payment but plans to put it back on eBay if the winning bidder doesn’t pay him his money. If he doesn’t find someone on eBay who will buy his collection for his asking price he plans to put up his collection on other Japanese auction sites.
