30-Year Collection Of Video Games Can Be Yours For $550,000

Have you kept every video game, console or you’ve ever bought or owned? You probably haven’t. But, try to imagine if you did. How many things would that be? A couple hundred? Somewhere in the 1000s, maybe? One guy in Italy has you, all your friends and probably a bunch of strangers you don’t know all beat. And he’s selling it all.

An eBay seller called *videogames.museum* has is attempting to unload what he or she says is a 30-year collection of games, hardware and accessories, filled with all sorts of rarities and variants. Dig all that sweet Mother stuff, for example. All told, the lot allegedly numbers more than 7000 items. The reason for selling? *videogames.museum* just can’t play everything:

After a life spent collecting video games I decide to sell off my entire collection.

I just have too much things and the space to store them is finished long ago… also I realised that if I want to play at least half of my games, I should live two or three entire human life…

Games, Consoles, Controllers, Accessories, Promotional and various items.

-The games count over 6850 pcs. with about 6780 boxed and 70 loose, and are in various format NTSC Japan or Usa and also PAL.

-The consoles are over 330, with 307 system boxed and 24 loose, and even in this case we have all the different standards.

-The controllers are about 220 with 167 boxed and 52 loose. I included all the kind of controller, from the simple joypad to the special controller like all the konami bemani to the densha de go train controller, and the arcade joystick as well.

-The accessories are about 185, and in this category I put the ac adapters, the various av cables, the rumble packs, the memory cards, battery packs, the converters for the region locked games, and various other items like screens, printers etc.

-The promo and various items are composed by promotional items like soudtracks or gadgets relate to a specific game or console, demo disc not for sale, limited edition item like the resident evil umbrella box or the Kratos twin blades, various action figures, strategy guides etc.etc.

Now the obvious caveat is that this all could be a massive hoax. But even if it is, you’d have to admire the work of assembling all those details and pictures for the express purpose of trolling. However, if the *videogames.museum* collection is real, it might just represent one of the most impressive personal game stashes ever witnessed. Someone, start bidding, OK?


    • You’re probably right but 6000+ games and 300+ boxed consoles and countless other items how would you even begin to price that.

  • Unloading a full collection at once is a horribly bad idea. The only people who would buy it would be rich people that have decided to start a collection. And even then, unless this collection has a decent amount of very rare (rare enough that every existing copy has at least some record of its location).

    Also, 300+ boxed consoles, there aren’t even that many combinations of format standards for them to be all more than just alternate colours.

  • On one hand I think he should sell everything individually, no matter how long it takes. This way he gets more money and more people get more goodies. But on the other hand, I can’t help but think it would be a shame to break apart the collection. Either way though, it’s very impressive.

    • Most of this collection is either stuff that most collectors already have (and that any collector willing to spend multiple thousands would, with only minor differences in the quality of the packaging and little extra paper slips that came with the game), or that only the most hard-core completionists would ever care about (such as uncommon power cords, model’s who’s only difference is probably stuff like electronic components not related to the processors), so selling it all together would be extremely hard.

  • Half a million dollars LOL! That guy is delusional, you can buy a high ens sports car or a top notch house for that.

    No one is going to buy this. You’d have to be insane and have FAR too much spare money.

  • No ebay history or feedback and he wants over half a mill deposited directly into his bank account not through paypal, good luck with that.
