    byuu (BSNES) is selling on eBay every SNES game released in US, Mexico, and Canada for $24,999. He is willing to take the best offer, but has declined all thus far.

    That's right, byuu (from SNES emulator fame) is selling on eBay an awesome collection that includes all 721 SNES titles released in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The asking price is $25,000 or best offer.

    Apparently, forty-nine offers have been made thus far, including 13 on Monday. All have been rejected...

    You can find a list of all of the games that are available on the eBay listing, including a rating of every game based on its condition.

      Actually he says he would probably take 20K if some one offered it, off of Ebay of course because they take like 10% or something.

      He was posting all over the comments section on Slashdot about it.

      the price tag is ridiculous. If you do the math each game is about 33 USD a piece. Looking at the auction pics you can see that most of the games look to be standard North American titles. You can get most of these games CIB for 10 dollars or less on sites like racketboy.

      Yeah, but in this case your math is not really applicable. Right from the description:

      This is a complete collection, so it also includes very rare and expensive collector's items that drive up the AVERAGE price per game.
