Sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. video game sells for £78,000

Considering it sold over 40 million copies in its lifetime there are an awful lot of Super Mario Bros. cartridges floating around in the world today, but not many like the one that just sold for $100,150 in America. That’s the largest amount ever paid for a single video game and that’s down to two reasons: the generally good condition of the still-sealed box and the fact that it’s from one of the earliest batches of games released in the US. The circular foil sticker sealing the game indicates that it’s from a small test batch released by Nintendo to test the markets in New York and Los Angeles in 1985, before the NES gained a wider release across the rest of America.
