    Default Nintendo PlayStation sells for $360k

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/07/tech/...rnd/index.html

    Being that it is the only copy left in existence, is this basically the holy grail of video games? In the words of Indiana Jones "That belongs on a museum!" hehe

    The buyer of the prototype "Nintendo Play Station" has been revealed as Greg McLemore, founder of internet-store-turned-infamous-bust Pets.com:

    Apparently, he will be loaning it to a museum, as it turns out.

    Still a ridiculous price. Take a 0 off of it and it’d be reasonable. Still glad it’s going to a museum, but no piece of video game history should fetch a six figure price. At least it’s not nearly as ridiculous as art which has scads of pieces that are 6 figures or even 7-8 figures.
    Real collectors drive Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Fords, etc... not Rolls Royces.

    It says it'll be loaned to USC's Pacific Asia Museum for an "exhibit next spring and summer" so it seems like it won't be on display on a permanent basis. I'm surprised it didn't sell for even more honestly. It's one of a kind and represents a massive turning point chapter in both companies' history.
