    This auction on ebay lists a video game collection with hundreds, no thousands of items. From Atari 2600 to PS2 and Xbox, plus PC/Mac gaming equipment, plus all kinds of software and accessories. It sold for $9700. It is the biggest I have ever seen.
    85 oversized boxes of videogaming history

    Actually, the reserve wasn't met, so the stuff never sold. I'm curious as to what the reserve is.

    I curious as to where he got it all, since it appears he didn't know what the boxes contained until he opened them.

    I can't imagine getting it shipped. While the cost wouldn't be too outrageous... Imagine getting the 30 boxes dropped off at your house.

    Truth be told, a rather sad story for those of us hoping to find true love at a HTF meet. [​IMG]
