No, 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.

Yes.

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.

>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.

I 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.

Yep 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.

If 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.

>>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 this
I'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.
>>
>>7600175
I'd give you $1000 for that.

>>7601186
Ah fuck you leatherman.
>>
>>7609982
I can find a copy of the same game in basically the same condition for like $30.
>>
>>7620814
Yeah. 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.
