Anytime I see one of these stories I just remember back when I was a kid getting a game at Toys R Us. You used to get this ticket off the display wall in the store and pick up the game at a window up front. But all around the walls going up like 20ft were stacks of new games.

so did pong, space invaders , ect ect..
but there is not doubt , SMB on my NES was possibly one of the first games in my experience that wasn't just levels either repeating upping the difficulty....

Thing is, whoever bought it also will never open it.. is it an investment, or just a way to stroke their ego?

Many people that can afford such a spend , always want that one thing no one else has,,, its the rarity ,a rarity we all (well us old fossils) played decades ago...

I say good luck, because I bet , anyone with that sort of cash have their own princess to look after..... probably no different, their princess is a trophy... or maybe a Achievement , a modern twist.

Those games you listed only had one scene, Super Mario was the 1st to let you explore an actual game world
