Check Out This $550,000 Video Game Collection

February 8, 2013 | Andy Cush

An Italian eBay user going by *videogames.museum* has placed his collection of 6,850 video games, 330 consoles, 220 controllers and 185 accessories up for auction. The price? A cool $550,000. While it may not surprise you to learn that Mr. *museum* has accrued exactly zero bids on the lot thus far, let’s see what he’s packing before we pass any judgement.

I have about all the shooters for the Megadrive, Saturn, Dreamcast, PC Engine, Playstation 1 & 2 and so on, and also I have about all the RPG, and I have to specify that the shooters are japanese but the RPG are the english version (which are for sure most collectable and valuable than the japanese). Of course there are about all the classic rare games, from Dracula X Rondò of blood (three copies, one sealed), Radiant Silvergun (two copies, One sealed), Magical Chase (two copies, one sealed) and then two copies of Ginga Fukai Densetsu Sapphire, and many many other

Those are just two sentences of a very long, very detailed listing. “After a life spent collecting video games I decide to sell off my entire collection. I just have too much things and the space to store them is finished long ago,” writes the seller to introduce the listing.

“Also, I realized that if I want to play at least half of my games, I should live two or three entire human life.”

Check out some of the best throwbacks and curiosities from the collection in the gallery.
