Complete Japanese PlayStation 1 Collection Sells For 3 Million Yen

Complete-Japanese-PS1-Collection-on-Yahoo-Auctions-JapanThe urge to collect every single game ever released for a specific console is rather alluring to some retro gamers. With a limited number and target to aim for, it’s an easy task to start, but difficult one to finish. One collector who managed this feat with the Japanese PlayStation 1 library recently decided to part with his hoardings, earning him a rather attractive finishing bid.

With over three thousand games taking up the Japanese PlayStation 1 library, hunting down each and every one of these was no easy task. The now-previous owner of this collection known by his Yahoo Auctions Japan handle of wmmft148 also managed to obtain many of the box sets and unique controller pack-ins too, all of which were proudly displayed in the auction’s description. Spread across the floor on a large blue cover, the complete collection appears to span nearly 100 different boxes packed to the brim with PlayStation classics.

The auction which finished just a few days ago racked up a massive ending bid of ¥3,000,000 (approximately £15,400). While it’s unknown who the new owner of this software library is, it’s safe to say that there is more than enough for a museum to be showcasing here - an entire snapshot of an entire gaming era.

At about $7.34 per game that's actually quite a deal to the person who bought it.

Although to me most of the fun is going out and hunting for the games, not that I'm even remotely interested in getting a full collection. I don't see the point in buying games for the sake of it, they have to be played :D

Could probably pick up the PAL collection for five times less.
