Do hipsters really...?
Not much different from the prices on Amazon or eBay.
>>7600121So there were high quality sprites from mario? why nobody tries to reproduce the graphics in a higher quality
You guys are just mad that you will never, EVER, have this in your collection. Ever.
>>7600121It was a sealed copy from the NYC pre-launch of the console, basically 1 in a million chances of that surviving. Not that I would spend anything on that, but it is literally very rare.
>>7600161...maybe a little.
>>7600121>hipstersa more meaningless buzzword doesn't exist
>>7600121no. this is a money laundering scheme between a few individuals. they are trying to drive up vidya prices. 60% (sic) of these auctions have been bought by one person. a few rich dudes are just trading these things back and forth.
>>7600195Munn was so beautiful. what happened to her?
>>7600161Not really my copy also includes Duck Hunt
>>7600195They do the same shit with art and vintage cars, no capital gains tax.
>>7600205>what happened to her?Hollywood
>>7600205She “dated” a gay guy for years, served as his beard and she went insane from it.
>>7600262>I really really like womenWho talks like that? He can't even lie straight.
>>7600205I remember when her nudes leaked like a decade ago
>>7600274Erin “I really really like choking in the playoffs” Fraudgers is the most out of the closet, closeted gay in human history.
>>7600195Man I miss when TV was based
>>7600121what is money laundering
>>7600121Fucking coomlectors ruining everything.
>>7600121It's a money laundering scheme. Pay no mind to it, as posting threads like this is playing into their hands.
>>7600791Green Bay is a shit team, shit city, shit fans
>>7600892Ok segalord x
>>7600121Hipsters aint buying these. Its boomer baseball card/comic speculator faggots
>>7600979>compared to ChicagoLowest bar possible.
>>7600247I don't think that would be her reaction at all>inb5 her
>>7600274>Who talks like that?Gayron Gaygers of the Green Gay (Fudge)Packers
>>7600161Not really. Sealed games have never held much of an appeal to me.
>>7600121This shit is reaching the "banana taped to a wall' levels of price inflation so fast its not even funny anymore...
>>7600161So the certification is really just based on the assessment of the condition of the box, right? I mean, the cartridge inside could be broken due to some factory fuck-up and we would never know. There could even be rocks in there...
>>7600161>Not even able to fucking play itTo me, it looks more like a expensive paperweight
>>7603669You better send this to Ashens just to make him record himself puking out his guts out from decades-old marshmallows and 'definitely not-Cheerios' for everyones amusement...
>>7605759Yeah, make it L.A. Beast and he's onto something.
>>7600161>Action SeriesAh, yeah... Super Mario Bros. the milestone of the Action genre.
>>7601186Youre always so defensive fatty
>>7600161I unironically have an unwrapped, top mint, German copy here. Made in 1987-1990.Collectorfags are the worst. If someone would offer me that cash, I'd just yeet it to the next retard willing to pay me several 100 Gs.
>>7600121The box image is funny when you realize that it's actually showing Mario falling to his death in lava.
>>7607207he's about to walljump or drift backwards onto a platform
>>7607176post proof, you can't because your a poorfag, keep seething
>>7607253Anon please... Learn how to write first.
>>7607375just tell him >>7607176 to post proof already or go back to faggit nigger
>>7603338this sounds retard - why pay so much to corner such a market? who's gonna buy you out?gotta be money-laundering
>>7603669you'd think nintendo would get in on this limited-release-old-shit-food biz like every other money-grubbing venture they've had
>>7607407Yeah all these bullshit high end items are. Art isn't worth what its appraised at.
>>7605759>cringeBack to Redd!t, fucker. Go on - bye-bye, buzzword bitch.
>>7600195How do I kill them and send the corpses to their families
>hipstersNo, the buyers are middle aged, Gen-X non-gamers who have no clue what the fuck they're doing. They'll claim "dude I have so many memories of playing Mario" when in reality maybe they played it some, sure, but at their core are the low-tier normalfag types who managed to get decent jobs and families, even though they were (and still are) deeply desperate for approval from the cool kids at the frat.Pic very related.
>>7600161Not only do I have that in my collection, but my copy also has Duck Hunt on it. Zoomer kiddos blown the fuck out yet again.
>>7609030>the cuck faceIs this a requirement to be a true retro gay man?
>>7609030>They'll claim "dude I have so many memories of playing Mario" when in reality maybe they played it some, sureonly true retro old-skool gamers like us appreciate bing bing wahoo, right anon?
>>7600121these clickbait articles always give so little info that retards see that shit and they think the cartridge that came bundled with their NES is now worth half a million USD
>>7608076>mini cereal boxes
>>7600121>$660,000Those money can easily help my family or buy hig quality console, school, cars and household.
>>7609616>getting pissed by people "gatekeeping" against these profiteering, trendhopping dipshits
>>7609962>NOOO THEY SHOULD SELL ME THE MINT CONDITION LAST REMAINING FACTORY SEALED PRE-RELEASE COPY OF SUPER MARIO BROS FOR LIKE $5 BUCKS I MEAN IT'S OLD
I mean, if you look at it objectively, there's usually not a lot of ROI on most games if you bought them back in the day. One of a kind stuff like this is a rarity. For most games, you dumped $40-60 1980s bucks on the game, hodled it for decades while trying to keep it in pristine condition, and then you resell it for... $50-150 2020 bucks. Just taking inflation into account alone you're losing money for the privilege of storing the game for all those years. One of a kind shit like in the OP is a rarity.The only real money is buying low and selling high right this moment.
>>7600205on what planet was this retard in any way attractive ever? Fuck you have low standards.
>>7603669I didn't know Pokemon Cereal was a video game.
>>7603669>2121>sexually amorphous youtuber purchases this for the shocking price of 3 satoshis (approximately $4.8 billion USD in 2021 dollars)>streams xerself dumping the entire box in xer butt>top rated video of the day in the People's Republic of California
>>7610051One of a kind? One of a kind?! There's like millions of copies of SMB out there, you retard!
OH NO NO NO NOhttps://youtu.be/vdeW9xg2m7M
>>7609982Who are you quoting?
>>7609962Who cares? It's just video games.
>>7609030that guy looks like he studied too many youtube thumbnails, lmao
Things seemed a little different on the non-Duck Hunt version. I remember Lakitu being harder to kill.
>>7607207that's some deepest lore here, can I post this on reddit?
>>7600121I though mario 1 was one of the most common nes games?
>>7600195grats on figuring out how capitalism works
>>7600161I don't want any ugly american cartridges, I'd rather buy famiclone or dendy carts than that shit
>>7600161bro i have that on my phone
>>7610352>collect games>can't play them because they are sealed in plasticI guess I understand sealing an unopened game but sealing a loose cart is beyond retarded.
>>7600121this cant be real
>>7611196>I though mario 1 was one of the most common nes games?It is. But the stand-alone cartridge is less common overall. If this is a first print US SMB1 cartridge in a near-mint box with manual, than it might actually be worth the price in the long run. I doubt this will make that copy of SMB+Duck Hunt shoot up in price.
>>7606106No chance you aren't a faggot
>>7600205She answered the call
>>7608076but they already released super mario limited cereal, you could use the box as an amiiboo
>>7609616>bing bing wahooThat's not a flag
one day i plan to make a lot of money and buy one of these sealed games and open it and play it on camera just to make collectorfags seethei'd still treat it well, i just think games are meant to be played
>>7600161I will never not find it funny that auction scammers encase these with certs that even hobbyist buyers can recognize as fraudulent and they still sell.
>>7600195Yep same thing is being done with specific PCBs.Cave shmups have gone from costing at most $300 for very rare copies to $2000-$5000 for non-rare shit-tier arrangements because of a few people buying up copies to drive up prices and selling them to each other. Even the non-money launderers can make money if even one of their PCBs manage to sell to some retard hipster troon who thinks owning one is an investment.
>>7609982it's the exact same game as the one in my grandparents garage so why shouldn't they?
>>7600161>cucklectors pay hundreds of thousands of dollaridoos for a game they can't even play based on some meme scoretoppest of keks
>>7601120hahaMind if I save this, Anon?
>>7600161If I had that shit I wouldn't think twice before selling it. Unless I felt I could get more from it, good riddance. 660k for a fucking piece of plastic with a rotting chip inside.Collections are the ultimate meme. Soibois saving money to buy worthless shit while Chad sellers get their money and spend it on good times and worthwhile investments.
>>7610187Considering based Steve eat 19th century war rations, your post is a likely scenario.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZoHuMwZwTkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga5JrN9DrVI
>>7600121>>7600161>WATAmore like wata fuck
>>7600121It's just a fucking Mario game, wtf
i dont get why people dont understand that this is just money launderinglike, everyone seems to understand that the modern art scene is a money laundering scheme, but doesnt connect the dots to here
>>7621523Retro video games prices never decreases, its value is infinite, like real estate, bitcoin and gold.
>>7600121This is like an extreme version of those fags who sell Pokemon games at ridiculous prices despite it being one of the most popular games on their respective consoles and likely having infinitely more copies out in the wild than actual consoles themselves.
>>7600161B-but I did when I was 4
>>7621168Save it, it's all yours my friend
>>7600121>mfw i bought a copy of supermariobros/duckhunt for 5 bucks
every time someone calls it the metroid prime of the saturn, a reseller raises the price another 10 dongers.
>>7608076I just bought lucky charms that had pokeman cards in the box
>>7600121The headline should really be "Retard gets scammed">>7600161>go through the effort of finding an unopened game>slab it so you can't even play it>some idiot will pay lots of money for thisI'll stick with a game I can play, instead. This shit is like buying a gun and deactivating it in an attempt at making it more valuable, except it's a completely mundane and common one with no collectible value and you can still go get one for $500, only in this case a retard might just give you $50000 for it if you're lucky.This has to be some kind of bizarre money laundering scam like with modern art.
>>7600175I'd give you $1000 for that.>>7601186Ah fuck you leatherman.
>>7609982I can find a copy of the same game in basically the same condition for like $30.
>>7620814Yeah. Why buy a cool game, car, or gun, and then just seal it away forever? Be careful, but give it a go, it's still an experience, particularly if it's something which is actually rare.As long as you take good care of it and don't use it hard, it's all fine.The only things I think are worth sealing away like that are stupidly fragile items, like those old gold plastic Transformer toys, which legit can break irreparably from even careful and gentle handling.
>>7600121I could literally play that shit for free right now.
>>7600161That's so gayHow is mario even rare ?
>>7627984>homophobia and being utterly unable to acknowledge a limited edition release priced at literally thousandsThis is not okay
Everyday this board grows even more overtly salty and I fucking love it
>>7628006>homophobia phobia>browses 4chan>being this much of an aboslute newfagfuck off and don't come back
>>7600161I only buy games I want to play so I don't give a fuck
>>7628006No one is afraid
>>7628006>phobiaMore like disgust, the kind that made man survive up to this point.
>>7600231That's pussy shit, my copy also includes Duck Hunt AND World Class Track MeetYou wasted your money, chum
>>7628006Gay as fuck.
