You Could Own This Copy Of Tetris For Only $US1 Million

Did you know that the Sega Genesis (nee Mega Drive) version of Alexey Pajitnov's Tetris is exceedingly rare? That there are reportedly only about 10 copies of this cartridge in the wild? Then you're probably not in the market for a million dollar copy of Tetris.

What could possibly command such an outlandish price? This particular copy of Tetris for Sega's 16-bit console was signed by Pajitnov himself, according to the owner of this "rare, exclusive, elusive, obscure and desirable centerpiece". He, by the way, paid &euros;11,000 ($14,600) for the cartridge back in 2008.

Now, cartridge collectors needn't really fork over a million bucks to get their hands on this thing - that's the "Buy It Now" price - but the eBay seller says he's rebuffed two offers of £12,000 (about $18,000).

    He paid a whole $14,600 for it three years ago huh, It's clearly gone up in value 6800% by now! There's been this whole Global Recession thing, those have a big impact on the cost of stuff.

    For anyone interested in this offer, I have a genuine original tetris gameboy (first gen) for sale for $42,000,000!

      Got the original box?

        If the box has dog ears, you should consider 40.000.000

      You're dreaming.. it's not worth a cent more than $41,000,000..

    I dont know if this story is acurate. I have this game i'm sure, will deffinatley be checking when i get home.
    I do know that i dont have any signed games though.

    He's probably just done this to get coverage on sites like this.

    @Jake, no. ;)

    it's only worth what someone will pay. Now who the fuck would pay $1mil for tetris?!
