The Nintendo Play Station prototype is going up for auction

The The"Nintendo PlayStation is in working order

A "mythical" Nintendo Playstation video game console which nobody believed existed is finally heading for sale at Heritage Auctions next year.

"Reportedly, the other 199 prototypes were destroyed when the promising partnership soured and fragmented". Heritage won't be putting a "reserve price" on the Nintendo PlayStation auction and since something like this has never been sold before, the auctioneers don't really know how much it will end up selling for.

In retaliation, Sony chose to develop its own console to rival Nintendo's domination of the market and the revolutionary Playstation was born.

Olaffson later left Sony for a role with the Advanta Corporation, before joining Time Warner in 1999, and shortly after Advanta declared bankruptcy. "Now, this prototype console is fated to be a coveted centerpiece in one person's collection". It sat dormant in their attic for half a decade until Diebold's son discovered it and brought the console to light in 2015. "I can't keep losing money", Diebold told Kotaku.

Although Diebold made known to the world that the last remaining "Nintendo Play Station" is still alive and works, the expenses from his tours made him full of debts, which forces him now to sell the said device in an auction. 'I've place reasonably a massive selection of labor into this by travelling with it and we now like made nothing on it. "Every trip that we. have taken with it has cost us money out of pocket", written by Diebold in an email sent in Kotaku. Come February, someone is going to go home with a precious piece of gaming history.

The Nintendo Play Station will soon be up for auction then, over on the Heritage website which has made a name for itself since previous year when it realised that there's a new generation of collector out there with cash to burn and an urge to acquire video games. The highest recorded price ever paid for a single video game is a sticker-sealed copy of Super Mario Bros., which sold for $100,150 earlier this year.

Heritage has auctioned copies of The Legend of Zelda for nearly $20,00zero every and a duplicate of the unique Mega Man for as a lot as $75,00zero. A sealed Donkey Kong 3 almost hit $30,000 (£22,860).

As the only Nintendo Playstation in existence, it's impossible to estimate the value of the console until the hammer goes down - although Terry Diebold claims to have previously turned down an offer of over $1 million.

The owner of the unbelievably rare, possibly unique prototype Play Station revealed the device is going to auction.
