So, I stumbled upon this auction a few days ago,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BIGGEST-COLL..._161279wt_1163




I've been poring over the pictures ever since.

Dude is selling like... every game ever. I don't even know how one amasses a collection like this without being majorly connected with people in the industry... Pretty incredible stuff to look at, even if you can't quite foot the bill.

It's also funny to see how minor fluctuations in the conversion rate change the price by tens of thousands of dollars.

The guy's gotta be somebody. How does one have every single game for an NEC console, factory sealed? And he says he's had tons of copies of these games floating around before...

I'm still trying to figure out if the value he placed on it is justified. Because there are a lot of games in there that go for several thousand dollars, and a lot of those games he has sealed. Which is insane. I don't have time to go through all of it, obviously, since there are probably like 12000 games here or something... but he might not be completely off-base.

Looks like Adol. long, long, longtime collector. Weird that someone like that would just want to sell everything at once, considering how much stuff he regularly listed on eBay for years. Could be some weird form of posturing, but I dunno; I'm not really insane enough to think like an ubercollector.

The guy's gotta be somebody. How does one have every single game for an NEC console, factory sealed? And he says he's had tons of copies of these games floating around before...

Obviously connections help, but even when they don't, money talks.

The Dreamcast had 550 while the N64 has only 200?

No wonder I only had like 5 games throughout the lifetime of the N64.
