I believe that many netizens have played a lot of cassette games,
such as red and white consoles, Game Boy, etc., but due to too long time,
it is difficult to find such a “retro” game cassette on the market.
due to its scarcity, a group of game cassette collectors have appeared, and the original original cassette has become one of their favorite types.
A few days ago,
a 1985 version of “Super Mario Bros.” NES version plastic cassette was sold at Hongji Auction Company for 660,000 US dollars (approximately RMB 4.33 million).
This “sky price” also made the cassette the highest-priced auction item in the video game collection.
According to Hongji Auction Company, the game cassette is one of the existing copies of the “Super Mario Bros.” cassette in good condition.
It is a cassette printed and produced in the fourth round of the game.
It was only produced for a short period of time at the end of 1986. At the same time, the cassette does not contain the “Game Pak NES-GP” code.
It is worth mentioning that in November last year, the auction company Heritage Auctions sold the unopened US version of the 1990 classic game “Super Mario Bros. 3” for US$156,000.
It broke the previous record in July, when the predecessor “Super Mario Bros.” released in 1985 was sold at a price of 114,000 US dollars.
Game collector and journalist Chris Kohler said that the “Super Mario Bros.” cassette can be sold so expensive, indicating that this original cassette has become more and more difficult to find.
He said that the previous players who played “Super Mario” and “The Legend of Zelda” are already in their 40s or 50s, and they have enough income to spend on these collectibles.
