A video game reseller has discovered hundreds of factory-sealed Nintendo and Sega games from the 80s and 90s inside a storage facility in Nebraska.
A video game store closing down in the mid 90's? Damn, that was pretty hard to do unless there was a death and then for it to all go into storage? There's usually a liquidation rather than go to a storage facility...who paid the rent all these years?
it's sad that we're too deep into collectardism for something like this to actually result in the finders selling new copies to the community below market prices so everyone can experience opening a new snezzz cartridge again. Probably 20 years too late for that in fact.People who don't play video games are furiously masturbating in anticipation of buying and not playing these.
sorry, run those numbers by me again, I'm not sure I'm reading that rightI would have every last one of those games X-rayed ,any shrinkwrapped game nowadays for that matter due to the fact shrinkwrap machines are and were no big deal to get ahold of.
Video Games were so popular back then,it was impossible for a mom&pop video game store to have ten(10) to twenty(20) copies of anything unopened in stock!
It does seem excessive. You might expect them to have maybe one carton or perhaps a shipper of something they knew was going to be really popular.It was impossible to have ten to twenty new copies of a certain title just sitting with nobody interested in it because distributors didn't supply mom&pop video game stores with that much and customers were interested in just about anything.
