I assume this is the one that Ben Heck got working.

To be honest, it should have been left in original condition. Even if it wasn't working.

Lets get a sweepstakes going.

I'll bet a pack of Hobnobs it'll go for $228k

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Didn't the guy say he turned down offers of $1m? I hope, for his sake, this goes higher.

Who cares how much it goes for, either way he’s going to get a lot of money for a plastic box, hope it doesn’t go higher than what it is now.
The guy saying he turned down a $1m offer is probably BS , probably trying to inflate or drive up the price.
If someone is stupid enough to buy this good for them .

am i right that there has never been a leaked game actually produced for this?

a shame because it would be so rad if there was a SNES-CD version of Secret of Mana. alas...

If the auction goes the way it seems, I'll be able to say I saw the most expensive console in history in person. Unfortunately, it was in a glass cabinet so no touching :messenger_weary:

Bids are up to $145,000. Impressive.

Shame it's nothing more than an interesting SNES shell. Like if their was some unique one of a kind software to go with it then that'd cooler.

That’s cool. What did you think of it?
I played a beat 'em up on it and wasn't impressed. It is cool seeing the Playstation logo on a SFC controller though. Not sure why the dude and his dad didn't sell the thing for the million or whatever when they had the chance.

The guy turned down an offer for 1 million before the auction. We'll see if he was right to do so.

$360,000 now... if I was rich and had stupid money to throw, I’d still not spend that much on this. It’s really neat and cool but that’s ridiculous.

On another thought, if I was rich, I’d open up my own local game shop and put that baby behind protective display case with electric traps, radioactive laser beams and a few guard dogs to show off.

Seriously though, I want to know who bid $360k

Lucky Palmer is the $360k bid (per his twitter)

Yeah. With most antiques, if you mess with anything it ruins the value. Can't believe this would fetch a ton since it is now a Frankenstein's monster. Stupid!
