Nintendos, Microsofts, Sonys, Necs, SNKs, Bandaïs… of all colors, in all their versions, in standard or ultra-limited editions that are almost impossible to find… nothing is missing.
€984,000. This is the price requested on eBay by an Internet user to acquire his “incredible collection” of video game consoles. Nearly one million euros, therefore, for more than… 2,200 pieces!
Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, Nec, SNK, Bandaï… of all colors, in all their versions, in standard or ultra-limited edition… nothing is missing. From the Magnavox Odyssey, the first console on the market released in the early 70s according to RTLto the very latest, the Xbox Series X and the Playstation 5.
According to our colleagues, the collection belongs to Ludovic, a 48-year-old video game enthusiast living in Aix-en-Provence. For the 40-year-old, the amount requested, which may seem crazy, is absolutely not “outlandish”: “I estimated each piece of my collection knowing that a lot are new, some are untraceable.”
200 to 300 impossible-to-find models
Ludovic ensures that 200 to 300 models are impossible to acquire today, even by paying the price. No way for him to sell his consoles individually. Only the entirety, in immediate purchase. He thinks that this one-of-a-kind collection could be of interest to a (wealthy) individual or a museum.
According RTL, Ludovic decided to part with his treasure primarily for lack of space. The whole is stored in a 300 m2 warehouse. Nearly 1,800 people are currently following this sale on eBay. Shipping costs are offered for France.
