eBay, you’re crazy. From artful sketches of Misty on a Tour Guide of the Underworld card, to cardborad cutouts of the Wii U GamePad, eBay users really do have a ton of money to spend on stuff.
So, here’s the next big thing: a video game collection that has been in the works for about 30 years, containing over 6,850 games, over 330 consoles, about 220 controllers, and about 185 accessories. Though we obviously can’t list everything that this guy is selling (usual warning, this guy doesn’t have any eBay feedback ratings, so buyer beware), we can give you some highlights.
First off, you’re usual games, such as the classic Nintendo franchises Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Kirby games can be in the mix. Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, and Super Robot Taisen are also a few series that will be included. Collector items include the Hitachi Gamenavi Saturn, the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Pearl White GameCube, 2 20th Mario Anniversary Famicom-colored Game Boy Advance SP, and the limited edition Metal Gear Solid PSP. The collection itself is a mixed of sealed/unsealed items, and also items across all of the major regions (Japan, Europe, and United States).
If you’re interested, and have the money to pay $550,000 USD + freight shipping (the buyer location is set at Italy), then you can check out the full inventory list here. Also, you can check out the auction page here; as of this writing, you have 8 days and 3 hours, with no bids placed at the moment. The auction is set to end February 15, 2013 at 10:38:38 PST.
*Update: Looks like the seller decided to end the auction early, so this opportunity is gone… for now!
