    The problem about collections is that most of the pride comes from collecting. Buying the entire collection will be a hollow joy to most as collecting each piece is what brings the pride. I fear whoever buys this will never develop anywhere near the emotional value this collection truely deserves.

    Perhaps if someone did wish to open an actual video game museum it'd be a great place to start, but sold privately, at best an already progressed collector will buy all the articles only to pick some out he/she's missing and pass off the rest again in circles to cover losses. At worst, someone buys it all and stores it away never to truely appreciate the treassure.
    Enough with bashing eachother, guys.. This community is still young and needs to grow up and show that not everyone are jerks. We're gamers and we enjoy games, don't bash eachother over what games they like or their oppinions, but don't let them bash others either. We need to come together and stand up, as a community, and help eachother out by being respectful and understanding. Please.

    If I was a millionaire, I'd buy that collection. Some of the rarities and special edition/collector edition items he has are absolutely unreal.

    All the games are stored in a basement with the right temperature, not too hot, not too cold, no humidity, no smoke and no direct light. I have a pet but he’s not interested in videogames...
    Favorite line of the description.

    Buying a completed collection just doesn't feel right to me. I've always been one to build and play as I go.

    That is a seriously impressive collection, but I don't think he's going to get half a million for it.

    I wonder what shipping would be on this and whether the buyer would have to pay for that aswell

    He's making a big mistake if he thinks he can sell something at that price, impressive as the item is, with no feedback.

    If each game weighs at 100g each, for a parcel of 250g or less its $5.60 here in Australia, 500g or more its $10.

    So mutliply the weight by postage cost and frieght, and you will have your total
