There is a huge issue with the distribution of wealth in the world today. If you need any proof of that, then take a look at how much someone dropped on a Mario 64 game.
The video game market is going through a huge resurgence in interest when it comes to retro games. People want sealed versions of classic, and there have been some huge auctions in recent memory.
We previously covered how a Legend of Zelda cartridge was set to break a record, and it did at $870,000 after an intense bidding war. Now a sealed copy of Mario 64 has topped that number.
Heritage Auctions just sold a sealed copy of Mario 64 for $1.5 million. That came only days after the record-breaking Zelda auction.
A copy of Super Mario Bros 3 sold for $156,000 last November. Since then prices for sealed retro games have went through the roof. It seems that those items will hold their value, if anything, they are going to continue skyrocketing.
This might be a good time to go through your storage facility once again in search for old video games, especially if you had a habit of buying games and never opening them.
We will continue keeping an eye on this market as it keeps exploding every week.
