The world's largest video game collection sells for $750K at auction
The world's largest video game collection — a compilation of more than 11,000 games that have been verified by The Guinness Book of World Records — has been sold to a bidder for $750,250
The auction, which began with a starting bid of $1, came to an end on June 15. It had 56 bids in total. In addition to the collection, the winner will also receive a lifetime subscription to Retro Magazine.
"I operated seven independent gaming stores during the nineties and have worked for another chain for the last decade," former owner Michael Thomasson wrote on the collection's page. Approximately a quarter of the collection is new factory sealed! Over 8,300 are complete with box and manual."
