Most expensive video game ever sold for £117,000 in auction

Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES may be one of the most widely available video games of its era but a rare variant just sold for £117K.

When you’re a completionist no price becomes too much to pay, to get that last rarity to finish your collection, and for one retro fan in America that price stands at $156,000 (£116,793).

For that, the unnamed collector got a sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES, one of the most popular and commonplace games on the system – except the box for this one features a rare variation in the artwork.

If you look closely, you’ll see that the word Bros. is on the left of the logo, obscuring part of Mario’s hand, whereas normally the word is on the right, just above his hat.

That’s the only difference, but it means a lot to collectors as it identifies the game as one of the first copies ever produced and there are very few known to still exist in the world.

Bidding, via Texan auction house Heritage Auctions, started at $62,500 (£46,792), with 20 different bidders pushing the price up to its record-breaking price.

The previous record holder was a similarly early edition of Super Mario Bros., which sold for £78,000 last year.

The same auction as the record-breaking Super Mario Bros. 3 also saw a sealed copy of Pokémon Red go for $84,000 (£62,889) despite, again, the game itself being one of the most successful and widely distributed of the time.

Have Fun ^_^
