Perhaps the biggest collection of games and consoles sells on eBay for (pinkies at the ready) one million Euros

Goodness me. You think your own game collection is pretty good - maybe you've got some rare stuff off eBay, or every game you think is worth owning on your favourite old console. And then someone like this comes along and makes your collection look as comprehensive as a single page that's fallen out of the 32 volume edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica.

I was going to say 'just look at this little lot' but, 'little lot' is totally the wrong description. It's actually a very BIG lot of 22 complete consoles. Yes, 'complete' as in the console (and limited editions of it) and every single game released on it.

Above: We haven't got enough room to publish all the pictures. So here are some Dreamcast girlies

There's no way we can picture it all here, but we're talking every Sega game, every Nintendo game and every PC Engine game. Master System, SNES, Dreamcast, Saturn... it's all here. Literally, it's ALL here.

The guy selling it even points out that it's his own personal collection (to go with a job in it, presumably) and that every time he acquired multiple copies of the same game, he would keep the best one for himself. This is that collection. Mummy.

Above: Of all these Japanese Sega Game Gear games, we've got Deep Duck Trouble, Super Monaco GP and Gunstar Heroes. We were quite happy with that... until now

The listing has sadly already ended. I say sadly because even though it ended at a million Euros, if you were to break up these rarities and sell them individually, you would almost certainly accrue way more than that in the long run. It might take you a few years to list them all individually, but hey - you could probably hire someone to do it while you go about buying the mansion... although you'd probably need a mansion anyway to store them all.

We'll just have to wait for the next 22 perfect collections to come up as one lot. Happens all the time.

    And several people think I am mad when I pay £700 for a mint condition (and very rare) SNES game. This takes it to a whole new level... Prices for old games have skyrocketed this year. A game I purchased 12 months ago for about £100 (SNES - Terranigma PAL version) is now selling for as much as £300. And many are now clearing £1,000 if they are in mint condition. Last week a big box copy (including players guide) of the Scandinavian Legend of Zelda - A link to the Past sold for £7,800 on eBay!

    I feel really bad that I impulsivel thought to myself "there are at least 22 consoles?" I gotta bone up on my console history

    This changes the entire meaning of hardcore gaming.

    I was going to try to complete the Gamecube and maybe the SNES. This guy makes me feel like a grandma who picks up a Wii remote every couple of weeks and only owns Wii Sports.

    damn his paypal fees alone are nearly $36,000

    That is pretty awesome. I think if I could manage to get a single console completed, I'd be happy. The N64 would probably be the easiest...

    I'm having to move into a much smaller place so I'm having to part with a lot of games and consoles from my collection, though I have only owned maybe 1,160 titles at one time. I hate to part with it, but I admit, I find that I have changed a bit. When games were more expensive, I only bought what I rented and loved and treasured what I received ad a gift. Now, PC, PS2, Xbox 1, PS one, N64, and NES games are selling for $1.00 a piece so I would buy some several and some games just to collect. I've bought several games just to say I have them, though I am currently making a big profit on eBay now. I just sold two Valkryie Profile discs and the manual for $57.00 after buying it for $9.99 maybe two months ago. I've made a decent profit selling $9.99 Best Buy games for more money used like SSX and Soul Calibur V.

    This is pretty insane. Makes me wonder how much of a profit he actually made after time and cost. It couldn't have been cheap and it sure as hell couldn't have been quick and easy.
