World's largest video game collection achieves $750,000 in online sale

The world's largest collection of video games has sold for $750,250 in a single lot online auction at GameGavel on June 15.

The compilation consists of 11,000 games across a range of formats and has been verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Thomasson acquired the collection over a period of 30 years

Michael Thomasson, the former owner, commented prior to the sale: "I operated seven independent gaming stores during the nineties and have worked for another chain for the last decade."

"Whenever I purchased a game that did not directly come from the distributor I was able to look through all our inventory and pick out the nicest copy of a game, including grabbing the nicest box and manual.

"Approximately a quarter of the collection is new factory sealed!"
