Okay, I admit it. This isn’t exactly related to Metaverset, but I know many of our regular readers here have their noses buried in the GameFi and general gaming worlds. As a result, I decided it was still important to share this news.
Hundreds of rare, unopened Nintendo and Sega games discovered in a Nebraska storage facility The collection is likely worth tens of thousands.
A video game reseller uncovered hundreds of factory-sealed Nintendo and Sega games from the 1980s and 1990s at a Nebraska storage facility.
The games were stored when a small retailer closed in 1994, and have remained undisturbed since.
There are as many copies of the less valued NBA and Madden games as there are fascinating findings, but the many boxes of really rare titles more than make up for it, according to workers at Nebraska-based Gameroom.
Price Charting, a website that analyzes the worth of old games, values Chrono Trigger on the SNES at over $2,400.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time (over $1,400), Final Fantasy III (over $1,200), and Sunset Riders (over $750).
These findings make minor finds like Aladdin on SNES, Contra Hard Corps on Genesis, and Musya on SNES appear less thrilling, despite their value of hundreds of dollars apiece.
Gameroom said they won’t know the collection’s total value until it’s all maintained and recorded, but it’s certainly worth tens of thousands of dollars.
It’s worth mentioning that if they have the games properly graded, the value may double, treble, or quadruple.
