    Default Is this pong console worth picking up?

    link

    I'm not going to buy this Ebay auction but I've found one of these locally for $49.99 and know that they are quite rare! Is it worth the price?
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it, mileage may vary.

    Pong units. The creepy uncle of the pre-NES collecting scene.

    I would say $10 for loose, $20-$25 complete. They are fun to break out once a year and play, thats about it.

    They are fun to put right next to a PS3 in your game room and have a 30 year gap between the date of manufacture.

    I have a CIB pre-NES Nintendo version of pong. Paid way more than $25 for it.
    Wanted and willing to fairly pay for:
    Final Fantasy III Hat/Cap (Official Squaresoft)
    Philips CDI 740
    NTSC Proto of Daze Before Christmas (SNES)

    I was asking because I know it's pretty hard to find this particular model and that it isn't seen very often at all so it may be a nice rare item for my collection. I also know that some pongs are worth more than the $10 to $20 group that most fall into. Not sure if this one is worth the investment for rarity sake or not though.
