Ebay user selling 6,850 games and 330 consoles for $550K

Some people proudly tout their video game trove. Maybe you have an Atari 2600 and an NES or two laying around with a couple classic games.

But it would be tough to top this 30-year-old collection now on eBay for a starting bid of $550,000. Included in the package: 6,850 games, 330 consoles, 220 controllers, and 185 accessories.

You got to see the pictures to believe it. Ebay user “*videogames.museum*” is based out of Milan, Italy, and says “after a life spent collecting video games I decide to sell off my entire collection.”

He spent the past two months working eight hours a day taking 10,000 pictures and tracking down all his items. He’s got everything from Mario to Burger Time to Final Fantasy, along with nearly every console you could think of.

Last July, a French gamer sold his collection on eBay for $1.2 million.

So, if you’ve got a half-million handy and want to own what is probably one of the largest video collections in existence, happy bidding.

    It’s not news if it doesn’t sell. There’s plenty of crappy domain names for sale with a starting bid of $5,000,000. All they do is expire with zero bids.
