Instant Classic Gaming Collection

I'm pressed for time, so I'll be brief.

One man is auctioning off his exhaustive console & game collection (including Mr. Do) on eBay, currently for the bargain price of $ 610.-- (Reserve Not Met).

Found on Kotaku. Spread here to Armchair Arcade.

Shall return to post again. Hopefully soon.

It's a fairly pedestrian collection, save for a few nice software rarities. What do you estimate this will sell for? I can't imagine this going for any more than $5,000 as a max, and I wouldn't be surprised if it went for a few thousand less.

No clue.

I couldn't venture a guess. I see it's up to $1,222.-- I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what the shipping costs will be.

I've been too busy to blog. I posted a link to some Adult Swim game at thisblogismyblog, probably should have posted it here (I suppose I still could), but it's not exactly classic gaming. But it's an amusing distraction.

I kinda like the blue thing you got going on here at AA now.

Well, the "blue thing" was a

Well, the "blue thing" was a result of the upgrade to the Drupal content management system, which was much needed to get the site running the way it should be. I do think it's a big improvement over the prior theme, though, regardless of the reasons.

$ 3600

You were right...sub $5k. Perhaps that was the reserve, since it was not met.

Yeah, that person would be

Yeah, that person would be better off breaking those up into lots, and then further pulling out the specifically rare software items and selling those individually. That would get him much more than a lot price. Of course it would also entail much more work.
