Being one of only 116 copies in existence, the 1990 Nintendo World Championship cartridge placed for bidding last week was sold for a whooping $99,902, despite its condition. This marks a new world record for the World's Most Expensive Video Game.
The crazy part is that it had over 300 bids, most of which above $50K ... O.O .. dafaq ..
I thought it was a copy of Cheetah Men 2...it is so crappy, yet so collectible.
I wish i still had my nes games...i had just about all of em...i coulda been rollin in dough right now lol
I recently discovered that some N64 games are worth hundreds (in some case, thousands) if they are in mint condition. I wish I had known that back then. I could have bought a heap of copies and sold them years later.
Re-effin-diculous! I mean, I know it's one of only 116 copies, but SERIOUSLY!? Guess some people just really have nothing better to spend their money on lol. Oh well. Good for him/her. A very rare game to have indeed.
damn, could've bought a new Viper with that much...or an older Gen 2 Viper, Gen 1 NSX..and still have about 20k left... Has it been confirmed that the winner actually paid for this yet? Official or not, I would never pay that much for a collector's item where the label is completely gone.
Probably some rich millionaire celebrity, in which that 99k is change to.
Jesus christ....all the useful things that that money could've been spent on....and the owner spends it on a cartridge...
Retards shouldn't have money...
I wonder if they will now dip this cartridge in gold and resell it..
Don't make me laugh, he will never be payed. Just boosters toying with the seller. The grey cart of that is only worth 9k in mint condition. In the condition shown in the pic, about $3500. Even the gold cart is only worth around $22k mint.
Disagree , its worth whatever somebody is willing to pay for it......as crazy as that may be.....
A moldy ham sandwich isn't worth a million dollars if a rich person buys one for a million dollars.
I was looking for someone to have posted this. The only reason this game was boosted to such extremes was due to the publicity the auction had been receiving on news sites. He will never be payed.
Make it a news story when he gets paid. Happened many times before. This thing was sitting at a few hundred dollars until the media picked it up, then it sky rocketed to the thousands. Probably just a scammer like usual. And if he does get paid, geez imagine how much easy money Ebay just made lol
The phrase "More money then sense" comes to mind.
That thing is in ass condition. You could buy one in mint condition for less than half of that.
Hmmm he certainly did well for himself seeing how the last copy sold at auction was in mint condition & sold for only $3,000. Something seems slightly odd about someone paying $99,902 for it.... I call BS.
... That's 33.3x more by the way. For my American friends that's "MATH"
Waste of money if you ask me. Whatever makes them happy.
Wow! Could the buyer lend me money for rent? Please? Just $600 :p
Forget rent. That money could go towards buying a house. Not a great house, but a house nontheless. :D
I paid less than £5 for the entire Mario game and you get to play it along with rad racer for 6 minutes for stoopid money, nice one ;)
