Biggest Console System Collection on eBay

Zonk posted about 10 years ago | from the not-the-omegathon-but-close dept.

Games 289

Cire writes "Someone named 'Mr. Soundtrack' is selling over 1300 games in one ebay auction. Included are more than 300 systems and a massive arsenal of gaming peripherals. The lot contains 23 Atari 2600s, 78 Nintendo NES's, 33 PlayStations, 60 SNES's, as well as some harder-to-find systems like the Bally Retrocade System, a Sega Nomad, and a couple 3DO systems."

Ever given away your systems? No? Well I have. I've given away my Amiga to my mother's friend and my Master System to my grandparents. Both of them are now broken but I gave them away to people who would let irresponsible people use them. It's quite possible his entire neighbourhood gave away their systems to him. It's also possible he got a lot of them at garage sales, second-hand stores, dug through garbage bins and replaced the broken bits (if there were any), etc, etc. It's also possible the whole auction is a fake.

mwilli (725214) | about 10 years ago | (#10464368)

I made a rough calculation through the US Postal Service. Via Parcel Post, the cheapest way to ship a package, it will cost about $450. The only problem being that they don't accept packages over 70 pounds. This being said, it will probably have to be shipped through FedEx, UPS, or some other service like that and will cost much more.

I'd keep 10 for myself, offer to give away the rest to anyone I know and then sell the rest. 10 for when they break (and with electronics it IS only a matter of time). I'd do that with every single system (on ebay with the option to sell lots of items for a fixed price). That way I'd get very close to making back all my money.

Early mac? That's an Apple 1 system! You know, the precursor to the Apple 2 systems sold at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto. I'm not surprised someone would value it so high; they were hand-made by Jobs and Wozniak so there aren't many of them in existance... and less that work.

And no, I'm not an Apple zealot, but this really is an interesting item for auction if you ask me.

Let's see. An early Mac would be a Mac+ or even a MacSE, but definitely an all-in-one. You could call a Lisa an early Mac, but it's a Lisa. This is an Apple I. Not even vaguely related to a Mac, other than it came from the same company.

This is the first production model that Apple sold, and those were hand-assembled in Woz' garage. The "moron" is likely to get more than his asking price -- these are not only pieces of history, they're legitimate museum pieces.

An essay on Biggest Console System Collection (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 10 years ago | (#10464187)

An essay on Biggest Console System Collection

In this essay I will consider the social, economic and political factors of Biggest Console System Collection. In depth analysis of Biggest Console System Collection can be an enriching experience. Remarkably Biggest Console System Collection is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that Biggest Console System Collection is not given the credit if deserves for inspiring many of the worlds famous painters. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that Biggest Console System Collection is rarely given rational consideration by the aristocracy, many of whom blame the influence of television. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of Biggest Console System Collection.

Social Factors

Society begins and ends with Biggest Console System Collection. When J H Darcy said 'fevour will spread' [1] she shead new light on Biggest Console System Collection, allowing man to take it by the hand and understand its momentum. No symbol is more potent than Biggest Console System Collection in society today. It smells of success.

Of paramount importance to any study of Biggest Console System Collection within its context, is understanding the ideals of society. It grows stonger every day.

Economic Factors

Economics has been defined as 'I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine.' To my learned ear that sounds like two people with itchy backs. Of course, Biggest Console System Collection fits perfectly into the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, as is standard in this case. Transport
Costs

Biggest Console System Collection

There are a number of reasons which may be attributed to this unquestionable correlation. Seemingly transport costs is in financial terms 'holding hands with Biggest Console System Collection.' Perhaps to coin a phrase Biggest Console System Collectioneconomics will be the buzz word of the century

Political Factors

The media have made politics quite a spectacle. Comparing current political thought with that held just ten years ago is like comparing 0

We cannot talk of Biggest Console System Collection and politics without remembering the words of that most brilliant mind Maximilian Rock 'consciousness complicates a myriad of progressions.' [2] This quotation leads me to suspect that he was not unaccustomed to Biggest Console System Collection. It speaks volumes. If our political system can be seen as a cake, then Biggest Console System Collection makes a good case for being the icing.

The question which we must each ask ourselves is, will we allow Biggest Console System Collection to win our vote?

Conclusion

We can conclude that the Biggest Console System Collection plays a large part in the lives of all. It replenishes the self, ensures financial stability and always chips in.

What a great essay. Finally a word from super-star Demi Schwarzenegger: 'I wouldn't be where I am today without Biggest Console System Collection.' [3]

No, it's not. Maybe some of the really old models, remember with the fake 70s wood veneer, fetch an extra couple of bucks, but 2600s aren't worth crap.

Atari produced them from like 1978 till 1992, or something ridiculous like that. There are literally more Atari 2600s out there than any other home console.

Video game collecting isn't something you do for financial rewards. I can list on one hand games that have increased in value due to rarity (Panzer Dragoon Saga for Saturn, or Dracula X for PCE/TG16), but those are extreme cases where the publisher screwed up and didnt make enough copies of an excellent game. Usually they flood the market with copies, and there's rarely a scarcity.

You buy a game 50 bucks new, and in 10 years, it'll be worth 50 cents. That's just the way it is. People like me collect the shit because we like video games.

I saw this 15 hours ago and I thought "oh that'd make a good article on slashdot" then I realised it would go for triple it's $3,000 price tag so I figured I'd let the person win it first before slashdotting it. But no, now it's going to go up a very large amount. I bet it was someone who was only willing to pay $2,000 for it that slashdotted it.

You evil, evil people.

"Honey! When are you going to get rid of that old junk in the garage?!?! All it does is collect dust."

And the guy comes back with a nice paypal receipt from Ebay. So if you are like this poor man, having your marriage ruined by excessive video games, Ebay is the solution!

Think of it, it's cheaper than a family lawyer and you can do it all from your computer at home.

Amazing ...

What do you think he's going to get a motorcycle out of it or something? His wife will be saying, "hey, honey, now we can get that new kitchen I've been dreaming of!"

An essay on Biggest Console System Collection

While many learned professors have abandoned hope of ever discovering the truth behind Biggest Console System Collection, I for one feel that it is still a worthy cause for examination. At one stage or another, every man woman or child will be faced with the issue of Biggest Console System Collection. Given that its influence pervades our society, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. Inevitably Biggest Console System Collection is often misunderstood by those politicaly minded individuals living in the past, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of Biggest Console System Collection. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of Biggest Console System Collection.

Social Factors

Society is a human product. When Thucictholous said 'people only know one thing' [1] he must have been referning to Biggest Console System Collection. Both tyranny and democracy are tried and questioned. Yet Biggest Console System Collection is crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle.

Special care must be taken when analysing such a delicate subject. On the other hand anyone that disagrees with me is an idiot. It is intrinsically linked to adolescent inner acclimatisation.

Economic Factors

Our world is driven by supply and demand. We will begin by looking at the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, making allowances for recent changes in interest rates. Market
Value
Of
Gold

Biggest Console System Collection

The statistics make it clear that Biggest Console System Collection is a major market factor. Recent studies indicate that the market value of gold plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. The economic policy spectrum is seeing a period of unprecedented growth.

Political Factors

Politics was once a game featuring competitors from elite classes. Comparing the general view of politics held by the poor of the west with those of the east can be like comparing Biggest Console System Collection and ones own image of themselves.

Consider this, spoken at the tender age of 14 by that most brilliant mind Maximilian Lionel Forbes Dickinson 'You can lead a horse to water, big deal.' [2] Amazingly, he new nothing of Biggest Console System Collection until he was well into his thirties. It is a well known 'secret' that what prompted many politicians to first strive for power was Biggest Console System Collection.

I hope, for our sake that Biggest Console System Collection will endure.

Conclusion

To conclude, Biggest Console System Collection parades along man's streets and man waves back. It enlightens our daily lives, brought up a generation and always chips in.

I will leave the last word to the famous Demi De Niro: 'My Daddy loved Biggest Console System Collection and his Daddy loved Biggest Console System Collection.' [3]

No Vectrex? (1)

TheClassic (816274) | about 10 years ago | (#10464288)

Probably sold 'em seperately since they're actually worth something.

But, he's got no Sega Master System either. He's not l33t.

May not seem like much, but multiply that by his "over 1300 items" and see what you get!

You get your shipment, only to realize that the auction is for game systems........aside from perhaps a cart for the Virtua Boy......no games are included in the lot. That would be like winning an auction for someones massive p0rn collection, only to realize later that they're all on Betamax.

Thats what happens. (1)

Someone will win it for ~$6000 (currently with 4 hours to go) and then pay that again for shipping... 21 boxes at an average of 69 lbs each?!?!

Watch the counter ... (1)

hemabe (532570) | about 10 years ago | (#10464403)

The counter, at the bottom of the page, is interesting...

First time I looked at it, 5 minutes ago, the auction was 308.000 times viewed.
Now, 11:36 pm in germany, 318.441 times.

24 hours more and we know more about the slashdot-effect ;-)
