We’ve heard about vintage items being sold at premium prices before, but it’s not every day that we get to talk about a NES game that’s worth $100,000. The Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge in question features a game named Stadium Events, out of which just 2,000 examples were ever made. What makes this particular game special is that it was one of the first to boast touch controls via 12 pressure sensors placed on special mats.
Dubbed Power Pad, the technology was borrowed from Badai and modified by Nintendo. The owner of the vintage NES game is rumored to be a former Nintendo employee. The enormous asking price is justified by the game’s rarity and by its authenticity, which was verified by the Video Game Authority. Collectors and old school gaming enthusiasts would definitely get a kick out of owning this precious piece of plastic. We’ll just have to see who’s passionate enough to pay $100,000 for it.
