Just to give an idea of the huge amount of items present in my collection, I spent the last two months of my life taking pictures and making lists, working about eight hours a day just in order to make an inventory and to figure out what I have. Even now after all the time spent checking things Iím not sure to have included all in the lists...
Due to the sheer amount of items is even difficult to present it, and I donít really know were to start... so I try to do my best even if Iím sure I might forget something.
Instead to pick up some favourite consoles and maybe try to complete all the games related, I choosed to collect most systems possible with the most rapresentative and rare games for each console.
This collection is the story of the videogames from A to Z, from the game & watch and old pong systems to the actual generation of PS3 and XBOX360.
I think that with all the stuff in this auction you can actually open a museum...
And now some numbers. I divide the collection in various categories:
Games, Consoles, Controllers, Accessories, Promotional and various items.
-The games count over 6850 pcs. with about 6780 boxed and 70 loose, and are in various format NTSC Japan or Usa and also PAL.
-The consoles are over330, with 307 system boxed and 24 loose, and even in this case we have all the different standards.
-The controllers are about 220 with 167 boxed and 52 loose. I included all the kind of controller, from the simple joypad to the special controller like all the konami bemani to the densha de go train controller, and the arcade joystick as well.
-The accessories are about 185, and in this category I put the ac adapters, the various av cables, the rumble packs, the memory cards, battery packs, the converters for the region locked games, and various other items like screens, printers etc.
-The promo and various items are composed by promotional items like soudtracks or gadgets relate to a specific game or console, demo disc not for sale, limited edition item like the resident evil umbrella box or the Kratos twin blades, various action figures, strategy guides etc.etc.

Currently bid at US $550,000.00
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

As of 2 years ago I did. Sold my entire SNES collection to pay for a big tattoo. I ended up getting about $170 for the cartridge and strategy guide haha. Would have gotten over $200 if I saved the original box, but I was like 10 when that game came out haha
"If I could strike one blow to spite their force, though I might bear one hundred more, I would wear the welts like rubies, and the shackles for a crown. And if I had one hundred hearts I would throw them all before their bullets before I'd sell a single one to wield their power. So lest we fall out of love with life, let us give all we have to give - for only a fool would cling to this world."
