At the beginning of July this year Super mario bros. NES sells for US $ 114,000. It set a new record for the most expensive video game ever sold. Perhaps I was hoping to hold this record for a while, but the highest price paid for video games at the auction was (again) broken.
Heritage Auctions revealed that it sold a sealed copy of the 1990 NES game Super Mario Bros. 3 $ 156,000 on Friday.
“The lot started bidding for $ 62,500, which is already an impressive amount for a game rated Wata 9.2 A +. However, 20 bidders participated in the game and the world’s first 1 million. Final prices soared towards world records during the dollar video period.-Game auction. “
Valary McCrecky, video game director at Heritage Auctions, said it was “natural” that another Mario game set a world record. This particular copy of the game is described as being in a “prominent” state, but the differences from the other copies are:
“What makes this copy even more unique is the layout of the package itself. Sealed copies with the word“ broth ”are very rare. Formatted to the left, it covers one of Mario’s signature white gloves. Collectors spend years looking for the earliest version of Super Mario Bros. 3 in production history, usually empty-handed. “
So you go-another record sale. Of course, if you want to relive Super Mario Bros. 3 yourself, you can always check it out with Nintendo’s Switch Online NES service.
