    $17,500 for a game that only lasts a number of minutes. That guy has money to burn. [​IMG]

    'The game itself has a time limit of just 6 minutes and 21 seconds and consists of three short segments from other NES games: Super Mario Bros., Tetris, and Rad Racer.'

    Someone should write to the person who bought it and ask him to dump it. [​IMG]

    found it already

    pretty boring, all it does it add up your score and depending on the game, multiplies it by 1, 2, or 4

    Ok, so from what I understand, it's not worth it to pay more for something just because of the exclusiveness (20 copies of a freakin demo, big whoop let's fight about it). The guy bought a demo of a game that he could've gotten "other" ways, and spent 17,500 dollars on something more important, like more than one game, or a couple of PS3s.

    I think I read in an older issue (a few years ago) of Nintendo Power about a guy who owned every single NES game ever made. I wonder if he had one of these..

    That is an investment like painting. It's like that game will be cheaper next week.

    You can't, sorry.

    As for the guy, he's obviously a collector with a lot of money. He can do whatever he wants.
