An unprecedented prototype of video game console called ‘Nintendo Play Station’. It was auctioned off for $ 360,000. At the same time, it set a new record for the most expensive video game commemorative product ever sold publicly.

Heritage Auctions, a popular cultural auction house, has provided this equipment. It was the product of a brief collaboration between Nintendo and Sony, as part of a series of auction of expensive video game items that ended last week. The final auction took place live at Heritage's headquarters in Dallas, Texas on Friday morning, with phone and internet auctioneers also able to participate.

Dating back to 1991, the device is known as the ‘Nintendo Play Station’. The fact is that the item marks the first time Sony has tried to create a game hardware. It was once called simply 'Play Station'. At the same time, it is basically a Super Nintendo Entertainment System with an integrated CD-ROM drive. It will expand the capabilities of the 16-bit Nintendo system to be able to play CD games.

A collapse between Nintendo and Sony destroyed the launch of this device and strengthened Sony's determination to make its own way in the gaming industry with the 1994 launch of the true PlayStation. that we all know today.


This prototype was originally the property of former Sony Computer Entertainment America president Olaf Olafsson. It was later acquired at a property auction by a man named Terry Diebold. Diebold kept it in his attic until 2015 until it was rediscovered by his son and shared on Reddit.
Since then, Diebold has traveled the world with this device, displaying it at various classic game shows. Terry Diebold told Kotaku in December that he turned down a $ 1.2 million offer for the device before auction.

The auction for this Nintendo PlayStation has been going on since last month. Bid reached 350000 USD at a time. But it dropped to $ 28,000 on Thursday afternoon when the bidders seemed to give up. Palmer Luckey, founder of VR Oculus, also participated in the auction. He shared on Twitter that he wanted the device because he wanted to actively preserve this unidentified video game item.

After all, it was purchased for $ 360,000. And today, thanks to Forbes, we know who bought it, why they bought it and what they plan to do with it.

Greg McLemore is the founder of Pets.com, a website from the late 90s. Amazon bought half the site. Then it, like other websites in that era, stopped working in the early 2000s.
But McLemore has made a lot of cash on "Pets.com" and other websites and is currently quite wealthy. He is using his money to buy used game consoles, machines, games and other game history.

The Nintendo Play Station is just the latest in the game history that McLemore bought. He told Forbes that he planned to create a museum of his own vast collection of gaming machines and arcade machines.


McLemore told Forbes that at one point in the past, he had suggested to Diebold that he would pay $ 100,000 for this model.

While Terry Diebold did not sell the device for $ 1.2 million to someone. He left it to be auctioned off and collected more than $ 360.00 for the machine he invested for $ 75. It was not a very good deal for Diebold and the luckiest deal for McLemore.
