World's biggest video game collection fetches €1m on eBay

The world's biggest single video game collection has been sold on eBay for €1 million.

An auction for what has been billed as the world's largest single collection of video games has sold for a staggering €999,999.99 (£793,000) on the online auction website eBay.

The lucky winning bidder will have more than just a few years worth of entertainment from the 7,000 or so retro games that they now own.

In includes every single NES game ever released, which amounts to 1,050 titles all boxed up with their instructions, including rarities such as Gradius Archimendes and Mike Tyson's Punch Out Gold.

As well as all the NES games, the 32-year-old French seller named Andre has also shifted every single Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DD64, GameCube and Virtual Boy title released in any territory. This represents every single home console Nintendo game all the way up to the release of the Nintendo Wii.

Andre, who lives in southern France and constantly buys and sells video games, did not neglect Sega in his collection either. The winning bidder is now the owner of every European and Japanese Master System game and a "full set" of titles for the Mega Drive, 32X, Mega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast and Game Gear.

Also in the collection is every game for the less popular NEC video game consoles, such as the TurboGrafx-16, which came out in the late 1980s.

Perhaps the rarest titles in the collection are a game called Go-Net for the Sega Mega Drive, which Andre claims is only one of two in existence, and a one in eight version of Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Gold for the Super Nintendo.

"What was important was the completion of each full set, every game of all those systems, all complete in box with instructions, or even brand new factory sealed," he said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Despite  selling some 7,000 games, he still has thousands of other titles to keep his thumbs busy.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801405310-ADNFCR
