The world's largest video game collection has been sold.
Record-holder Michael Thomasson has unloaded his massive collection at GameGavel; the 11,000-title lot went for $750,250. The winner, as indicated by the big history , goes by the username "peeps_10091970."
The winning user was in a bidding war with "catch123," who bid up to $750,000. Prior to the auction, Thomasson said the approximate value of his collection was between $700,000 and $800,000, and it looks like he was spot-on. If you're wondering, $750,250 works out to about $68 per game, so that's a pretty damn good deal for the seller, wouldn't you say? Sorry if you didn't get the chance to nab this mountain of video games but really, where the hell would you put it?
That's my reason for not bidding. Just no room.
