Want an NES game? $41k, please
A mint condition copy of Bandai's Stadium Events has earned the honour of being the most expensive NES game ever sold, fetching a ridiculous 41,300 USD at auction.
Hot-Blooded Gaming picked up on the sale, which offered a sealed copy of the game at the exorbitant price of 41,300 USD.
That's twice as much as the previous reigning champ of overpriced NES games, a copy of Nintendo Campus Challenge that netted 20,100 USD.
What's all the fuss about? Stadium Events is among the rarest of NES games and bids skyrocketed on the unopened copy. The man who bought it: JJ Hendricks, a noted collector who has built a reputation on purchasing rare games.
