World's biggest video-game collection goes for $750,000

What has been certified by Guinness World Records as the largest single collection of video games in the world has sold at online auction for just over $750,000.

Over 30 years' worth of collecting games across what we would have to imagine is every console ever made has netted owner Michael Thomasson a cool $750,000 in an auction on GameGavel.

The collection, which came with the certificate from Guinness verifying the collection as the biggest in the world, consists of over 11,000 games, including the 10,607 games included in the official count performed by Guinness on 3 December 2012, plus over 400 games Thomasson acquired since then.

How does one acquire such a collection to start with?

"I operated seven independent gaming stores during the nineties and have worked for another chain for the last decade," Thomasson explained. "I also operated Good Deal Games online since 1998, having thousands of games cross my path. Whenever I purchased a game that did not directly come from the distributor I was able to look through all our inventory and pick out the nicest copy of a game, including grabbing the nicest box and manual."
