This is absolutely amazing !
And you thought your Atari 2600 collection was cool.
A French game collector just netted a cool one million Euros (or about $1.23 million) on eBay for what appears to be the most epic game collection ever.
Seriously, it’s a doozie. The collection includes full sets for 22 game consoles, or roughly 7,000 games. We’re talking every single game for every Sega console, every game released for Nintendo systems spanning the Famicom to the Gamecube, and even every single game ever released for the lesser-known NEC systems.
The startling haul belongs to a 32 year-old named Andre, who told The LA Times that it took 15 years to complete the absolutely insane task of collecting every Nintendo, Sega, and NEC game.
“I perfected some full sets by getting every title of them factory sealed, just for the challenge of it,” he said. “Some titles are extremely hard to come by brand new when they’re 25 years old. Now that the mission is complete, maybe it’s time to move on.”
