On July 30, PCMag.com reported eBay as the place to shop for unique and sometimes geeky treasures and a recent listing hit the mark. The listing titled, “The Legend of Zelda NES Nintendo Prototype and VGA Factory Sealed Copy” was listed for an unbelievable $150,000.
The seller, who goes by username tjcurtin1 listed the 25 year old game, Legend of Zelda. The game is in shrink-wrapped new condition with the manufacturer’s seal in place. Although a VGA copy of The Legend of Zelda for Nintendo was included, the seller stated that some of the listed features, such as the game pad and joystick, are not included. These additional game elements did not appear until the late 1990s.
The listing ended on August 2. Unfortunately, the seller did not receive his asking price but 42 public offers had been made. The listing closed at a whopping $55,000. In early July, a collector’s set of complete titles for 22 game systems sold for a staggering $1.2 million on eBay.
