Video game connoisseurs must be drooling at just the sheer idea of a collection that was recently sold. A man named Andre, who resides in Paris, is now sitting on a cool $1.2 million after selling his collection of classics, which boasted over 7,000 titles. The collection included every game ever made for the Sega, Nintendo, and NEC consoles.
The 32 year old has been selling video game collections online for some time now, but this is decidedly the most ambitious venture he has attempted. Speaking of the sale, Andre said, “What I put on eBay is just a part of my collection. I still do have thousands of other games that I didn’t put there.”
It would be interesting to know which titles Andre left out of the vast stockpile, however Andre has stated that this collection included what he believes to be one of only eight copies of Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Gold ever made, as well as one of two copies left in the world of one particular Genesis game, Go-Net. Besides those two titles, the collection stored a plethora of obscure games for systems such as the Nintendo Virtual Boy and the Sega Dreamcast.
What may appear to be just one big pile of irrelevant discs was not hard to sell to one “lucky” Canadian who forked over $1,230,699.99 plus $1,230.70 for shipping. With all of this money in hand, Andre said, “Now that the mission is complete, perhaps it is time to move on.” I would say so; with $1.2 million Andre can move on to wherever he likes.
