Super Nintendo Collection For Sale - Every Game with Box

A well known Nintendo collector is selling his entire licensed Super Nintendo collection AND every single game includes the box and 85% of those also include the instructions. The list price is $20,000.

The sale is happening over at the game collecting subreddit (as a side note, you should join the /r/gamecollecting community if you haven't already. It is a great community of very knowledgeable collectors).

You don't have to worry about the reputation of the seller one bit. He is a long time member of NintendoAge. He created the bsnes emulator and bought all of these games so he could scan the boxes and make sure the ROMs are accurate for every game. Every penny of the sales price will go towards doing the same thing with PAL and Japanese SNES games.

Atari 400 Games & Prices Added

In 1978 Atari announced the Atari 400 and Atari 800 computer/video game system. The "computer" only had one built in program - Notepad - and all other software needed cartridges to run. Many of these software titles were video games.

For all the Atari collectors out there, we now have nearly 200 games in our newly created Atari 400/800 price list.

As always, if you see a game missing from the list please let us know so we can add it and start tracking the prices.
