Fuck has he just been robbing a gamestop/funcoland/whatevergameplacetheyhavethere for the past 20 years on a weekly basis. I've been gaming avidly since I was 5 and even if nothing had ever broken or been traded in I wouldn't have anywhere near the collection he does.
(Fatal Furry) Hats off to you sir.
I've got just about as much, just not doubles of consoles or arcade cabinets. Some of those crappy N64 and PS2 games aren't worth the carbon footprint of the plastic they're made of.
It seems the UK got some pretty good imports that the US didn't get. Valken and EDF in particular. That UK Ico box art is far better than the lame one we got.
It's impressive, but coming from someone who has about as much, it's a real burden when you have so much you start to forget what you have.
Jesus, I think my comptuter almost exploded trying to load that. I have never seen that many images for one auction. Don't you have to pay per picture?!
I only looked at the first hundred or so pics but I want that badly. How much is 4000 Pounds in Dollars?
I use to have that pikachu Gameboy Color but his looks brand new. A lot of his stuff looks brand new.
I especially like the slipcased versions of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
Really don't get why he decided to try to sell all this in one giant bundle. Unless you love old fighting games and Sonic, this will be a hard one to justify. I would gladly buy some individual parts of this collection, but all of it is just ridiculous.
Damn. That's got to be one of the best collections I've ever seen. At the time of this comment, the current bid is £4,000 (or $5,907). I wish I had that kind of cash man!
EDIT: Also, I didn't happen to see any PS3 systems, games, etc. This leads me to believe that RetroBoyG decided to sell all his shit after realizing the PS3 was the ultimate system. :)
I will never understand these people. Wanting to move on from material attachments (and how) to being all grown up with a mortgage and shit, pfft. But seriously now, spending all that money and time getting all that crap and then in a hair's breadth dumping the lot? Don't know about everyone else but I'd find it soul crushing.
