“I had a lot of confidence in this game, and, yet, I still feel like the reality of today’s bidding exceeded my vision of how it would play out,” Heritage Auctions Video Games Specialist Valarie McLeckie said. “Making history is never an easy thing. I’m just really proud we got to be part of this yet again.”
If you head over to the Heritage Auction website, you’ll see a plethora of other timeless video games on offer. I saw copies of Final Fantasy II, Super Metroid, Super Mario 64 and tons more up for auction.
