    U jelli? I jelli.

    It all started with a 17-year-old teenager and a little ambition. Fifteen years later, a hardcore gamer from Paris sold what may be the largest, most complete retro video game collection ever for €1,000,000 (over USD $1.2 million). It features complete sets of titles for 22 different consoles, totaling over 7,000 games. Almost all of the games (of which the oldest are 25 years old) are still factory-sealed, and the ones that aren't sealed are still complete with box and instruction manuals; no "naked" cartridges in this lot. Of significant note in this collection are a complete set of the entire Virtual Boy library, as well as a copy of Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Gold (of which only eight copies exist in the entire world), and Go-Net for the Sega Mega Drive (of which only two copies are known to exist).

    Is there a particular reason the games Japanese? Are Japanese retro games more rare than PAL or NTSC-U games?
