Some people enjoy collecting things.
Some people really, really enjoy collecting things.
And then some other people take it to a whole other level entirely -- like this eBay'er from New York state for instance, who has amassed a massive, gigantic collection of console games. And this humongous collection of consoles, controllers and games, can be yours for the only $11,000 clams USD.
What do you get for $11,000? A lot. This veritable library of console gaming spans 30 years, back from the black'n'white blocky bit-days of Pacman rip-offs and game systems sporting faux-plastic wood paneling, to the later-on hey-day of fallen consoles, such as the SNK Neo Geo Pocket, and the VM Labs Nuon. This serious game collector has a number of extremely rare products in his collection: such as, for example, a Christmas version of the Sega Saturn game NiGHTS (never heard of this myself) and Attack of the Mutant Penguins for the Atari Jaguar (which is a real game, apparently...albeit only notable for its rareness, not its fun-ness.)
And in addition to the more than 1700 different console games, the collection also includes the actual consoles themselves, and controllers, and related components.
It'll be interesting to see what this 'gold mine' collection of old console games sells for.
