I'd love to know what sort of prices the offers have been hitting. You couldn't sell that lot for half the asking price, imo - it'd make far more sense to split it up.

It's probably not a serious auction at all. I wouldn't be surprised if he *does* end up splitting it, with this turning out to be nothing more than a cheap way of getting people to bookmark him as a seller.

Yeah, I really doubt it, too. He'd mentioned in the listing that he'd split stuff up by format for people who were prepared to make him a serious offer, and there were a few people asking him about it in the questions section at the bottom of the screen, so I've presumed that what actually happened is he agreed to sell part of it to somebody and used a shill account to 'win' the auction and close the listing.

How the hell did he manage to amass a colleciton like that though? Should be in a museum.

I took it at a joke auction at first. I certainly agree that anything of that magnitude deserves to be in a museum. Its something that will be of significant cultural value in many years to come.

I can't remember if it's mentioned in the listing itself or not, but it sounded like he'd been buying and trading games for years, and had kept the best example of each game to one side, rather than selling it on in his usual trading pattern.

Fair play to the guy for amassing such a crazy amount of stuff. He must have had some serious dosh to back it all up too.
