For a minimum bid starting at a more than a million dollars, a collector is offering his entire catalog of video games for Nintendo home systems from the NES/Famicom through the GameCube, plus the full lineup of every game released on any Sega system—all of it in the box with original instructions.

Easily numbering more than 5,000 games, the collection comprises the full run of cartridges for the NES, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, GameCube and even the Virtual Boy-plus the full run of anything published for the Sega Master System, MegaDrive/Genesis, Game Gear, Saturn and Dreamcast. The Dreamcast collection itself, totaling 550 games, is advertised as factory sealed. All of it.

Further, "all games ever released on NEC systems, all factory sealed!" also is promised in the lot, given a buy-it-now price of 999,999.99 Euro, or $1,238,099.99 US at current exchange rates.

Meh.

I'm more famous than that guy and I know better than to ask for a million bucks for my collection of D&D books, Avalon Hill games, and assorted PC games.
