A quick bit of news for you: that super rare Nintendo PlayStation Super NES CD-ROM Prototype has sold at auction for over $300,000.
The opening bid was set for $31,000 and the auction ended on February 27 with a winning bid $300,000.
With the buyers premium added in, the cost comes to $360,000 (thanks,
). Many expected the device to sell for quite a bit more, especially since the owner was
offered $1.2 million for it at one point
Developed in a joint effort by Sony and Nintendo around 1992, this was the last remaining prototype of the alleged 200 created. The others were either lost or destroyed.
The prototype features a slot for Super Famicom and Super Nintendo games and a CD-ROM drive which was meant to play discs. While the drive was not working when it was found in 2009, it has been repaired and can play music discs.
