This guy is auctioning his entire gaming collection, amassed over the last thirty years. It's only a little over half a million bucks. What a steal!
It includes at least 330 consoles, with 307 of them boxed. Over 220 controllers, with 167 of them boxed. Tons of accessories, almost 7,000 video games (almost all of them boxed). My house isn't even worth this much. I'm going to give up my meager attempt to build a video game collection, as of now. Nothing could ever be this glorious. *sigh*
Here's a ton of photos of his collection, on imageshack (something like 10,000 images, I think?).
Images of the room, itself, full of his collection begins, here.
Despite being packed tight, I'm even envious of how well he seems to be able to care for his stuff. I have to deal with dust, humidity, heat, cold, light, careless people in the house and so on. The idea of being able to put stuff in a room that could be perfectly cared for is just . . . such a pipe dream.
Oh, and I think he's in Italy. Imagine the shipping costs! Especially if you did it in a way that shit wouldn't be damaged in transit...
Also, here is his brief explanation:
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... also I realized that if I want to play at least half of my games, I should live two or three entire human life...
Just to give an idea of the huge amount of items present in my collection, I spent the last two months of my life taking pictures and making lists, working about eight hours a day just in order to make an inventory and to figure out what I have. Even now after all the time spent checking things I’m not sure to have included all in the lists...
