Probably be someone like that guy they posted an image of here a long time ago. He was standing in a room with shelves from floor to ceiling filling the entire room and it was just for his games and all the shelves were full. He had thousands upon thousands of games, it was amazing just seeing that many games. I believe someone like that this would be totally irresistible and the crown jewel of his collection and also make it the ONLY truely complete collection if it was an NES collection and NO ONE could ever match it since this is the only copy.

Definitely a big bragging point for a hardcore collector.

I'm a game collector but that game is way too much from me to buy.

Incidentally, if anybody else really wants this game, you can buy a reproduction for $65 that doesn't even require you to mod your NES.

Got sealed copies of Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI and Super Metroid for 120 $CAN
Got Final Fantasy I for 40 $CAN, but my NES died

EDIT: Oops, no, they were not new, but in very good condition. My mistake.

Yeah. The guy selling the repro did have this $20K game for a little while in order to actually make it.

I'll be selling my game at that site when it's done. My older games are on there too.
