    Default The King of Collectors: Full Playstation 2 NTSC Library Sealed

    I just finished the interview I had with the only known collector to have a full sealed ntsc Playstation 2 collection (over 1850 games).

    The Playstation 2 has one of the most extensive libraries of all consoles, trying to get a complete set is near madness..lbut he went for a complete sealed set!
    Wanna know what drives this collector and wanna see his collection?

    Hope you enjoy the read as much as I enjoyed talking to him

    It was a nice read, but pertaining to Greatest Hits games with extra content, he's missing quite a few games from having a full collection.

    Damn! I never thought I'd see a complete PS2 set, let alone a complete sealed set! Anyone have any idea of the value of this set?

    Not nearly as much as what he probably paid to accumulate it.

    I wonder what he does for a living? I want that kind of money, especially to buy a Uncharted Fortune Hunter Edition.

    actually I thought that too, but as the text says he paid $300 for Moto GP and that was by far the most expensive one.. so the games that go for big bucks now were all picked up pretty cheap

    Yes, but if you look at one of his other answers, he says he got 95% of the games for either a discount or around what they were released for. Given that probably 95%+ of the PS2 library goes for less than 1/3 of what it was released for, he probably spent many times more than what the entire collection is currently worth to accumulate it.

    Well, that is amazing and all but I think he is going to have to sell all that if he wants a decent Neo Geo AES collection.

    I thought it was Wizardry that he paid $300 for? Very impressive, but still, sealed collecting is masturbation no matter how you justify it.

    I don't know who's crazier: this guy, or Adol?

    Because they had the money?

    How can someone afford 20k on a sealed Stadium Events? How can someone afford 7k+ for a NWC Gold, 55k for Kizuna Encounter and the other AES game? How can someone afford to 90 bucks on the DNF: Balls of Steel edition? Because they had the money.

    How can someone afford to drop 500-600 a month on games, buying more than they could play a month, let alone the 7,200 on games spent that year, and do that for close to 2 1/2 years? I did that when I was in the 21-23 age range.

    I had access to a great indy store, and pretty much all income was considered disposable at the time and I disposed of a good chunk of it at a game store. PSOne games, PS2, XBox, GameCube, some GBA and other older stuff here and there. I paid the bills and things I needed to, but the rest, it went to games.

    How is that potentially any different than what he's done (besides the 2.5x scale if my spending was dragged out over 4 years).
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Better management over personal finances. Even if you're working minimum wage at 40 hours(or not even that) you should still have some money left over after paying bills and for food.
