Italian Game Collector Wants You to Bid on his $550,000 Games Collection

By   /   3 years ago

Fancy yourself a game collector? If so then perhaps you’d want to bid on an Italian game collector’s collection.

The insane amount of almost 7,000 games took at least 30 years of collection, and is priced at a stunning $550,000. This is clearly one of the largest game collection ever that I’ve laid eyes upon or at least that I’ve read about.

Posted on eBay by ‘videogames.museum’, the description reads: “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 realized that if I want to play at least half of my games, I should live two or three entire human life.

“Just to give an idea of the huge amount of items present in my collection, I spent the last two months of my life taking pictures and making lists, working about eight hours a day just in order to make an inventory and to figure out what I have. Even now after all the time spent checking things I’m not sure to have included all in the lists.”

“This collection is the story of the video games from A to Z, from the Game & Watch and old Pong systems to the actual generation of PS3 and Xbox 360.

The auction includes:

  • Over 6850 games, with about 6780 boxed and 70 loose, and are in various format NTSC Japan or USA and also PAL.
  • Over 330 consoles, with 307 system boxed and 24 loose, and even in this case we have all the different standards.
  • About 220 controller 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.
  • About 185 accessories, 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.

With eight days remaining until the auction expires, the collection has gotten no bids. Would you be willing to drop in one?
