Very EXCITING NES Bundle!

Post by EvilArmourKing » Fri Jul 04, 2008 9:58 am

Just read an ad for a HUGE NES collection that has been collected over the last 14 years.

300 Boxed games, some sealed for £500.

Does it sound good (even not knowing what the games are)

I would assume there are no duplicates if somebody has been collecting for over 14 years, but how many PAL NES games were released??

That wouldn't happen as it's collection only.

Have just e-mailed him to ask for some photos or a list.

However...there definitely haven't been 500 PAL NES games released.

Never said 500. It's for 300.

If they're all boxed games then it really doesn't matter what games they are because they'll all be worth at least a couple of quid each... If you've got stuff like Bubble Bobble 2 in there that's worth £50-100 on it's own!

According to a NES release list I found a while back there were 310 different games released in Europe, so it could well have nearly every one! :D

My mistake. 300 seems closer to the true figure but I would assume he might very well have some NTSC games too. Has he responded yet?

Will update once he mails back. Failing that I'll probably phone him tonight or tomorrow morning.

Yeah but Bubble Bobble 2 is US and Can only (unless you mean Bubble Bobble 2: Rainbow Islands which is maybe worth £7-10).

Also don't forget that some games released in Europe are PAL B only such as Corvette Zr-1, Die Hard and Cool World etc. and thus don't work on UK NESs. NES collecting is a minefield isn't it!? :)

Not really, modding the console is easy after all! ;)

But I see your point - quite a few of the games never made it to UK soil. But 300 boxed games for £500 is a no-brainer (if you can afford it) regardless of the titles really...

I agree. 300 Boxed copies of something really common like Time Lord or Fester's Quest have got to be worth £300-600 (although it'd take forever to sell them) so if there is a good selection then it's win/win.

I actually disagree, but must be wrong.

Whenever I look at stuff in either the MS or NES section on eBay, I see hardly any of the common stuff EVER selling.

Thought the market was nigh on dead for both these formats.

Master System I totally agree with... I bought a job lot of around 20 boxed games a while back for around 50p each and struggled to sell most of them for a profit! :roll:

With the NES, the unboxed commons I imagine aren't great sellers but anything boxed in good condition should fetch a few quid at least...

Good news for me, as I have 2 NES collections, unboxed and boxed and in great condition (I didn't say MINT lol).

Here is the original ad :

around 300 games, rare items some sealed, wireless controllers, game genie, Aladdin deck enhancer, collected for 14 years

Whats an Aladdin deck enhancer when it's at home??
