Massive old-school video game collection fetches $1.2 million on eBay | Games Blog - Yahoo! Games
"Hey honey, want a new house?"
"Hold on, let me sell my game collection first."
I think the member on this forum with the most number of TF in his/her collection would fetch much more $$$ than that.
That ridiculous. Mind you, I don't know much about the older games, thought. That's still a crapload of money and games.
I highly doubt this. Couple of hundred thousand to half-a-million, but not anywhere near 1 million. There is a message posted in the members section on that site saying that there are a few sealed original games that fetch $100k. NO single Transformer demands anywhere near that yet.
What in the hell game is worth $100K, I ask?
If that's a nintendo game, that makes it worth like 5 times it's weight in pure gold. Who could afford to pay that in the first place?
I have no idea. The people on the forum had to be collectors or at least interested in the topic and to make a claim of $100k for a single game alone, would warrant the idea that they would have had to have seen it to make such a claim. However, I did a quick search and found these :

Would You Pay $50,000 For This NES Game? | Kotaku Australia
Heh, I watched that Transformers episode.
"Honestly, I'm just not sure who's gonna buy this. It's just gonna take up space on the shelf."
First thing to pop into my mind is "Best I can do is 5 bucks."
Also, I hate these kinds of articles, because when idiots see this, they start thinking that their old Mario Brother/Duck Hunt cartridges are worth ridiculous amounts of money. In reality, almost of the entire value of that collection is most likely only in a single-digit number of games in the collection. Really rare stuff, like Stadium Events, or the NWC cartridges.
"eBay, after you pay"
I think there's this Nintendo Championship game where an original copy may fetch that much...
But that's really too expensive ! Indeed there are great game lovers but I guess paying $100K just for a game is too much of it. I mean who's gonna purchase such an expensive one ?
Rich people are simply that rich.
Heh, I actually have a SMB/Duck Hunt cartridge.
I don't know if it was packaged with anything though.
And the Campus Challenge ones (the successor to the NWC) are even rarer! I think the Blockbuster Genesis carts are pretty rare too.
GameStop would have charged $3 million for the collection. Used. And scratched. Without the original cases. And there'd be half of a price sticker over the contacts.
Certainly. Such games are made only for the rich people and we people can only hear the good or poor reviews regarding these expensive games without even playing them. I wonder sometimes that what would be so special in them.
