Do you own this retro game? Old Nintendo cartridge sells for over a MILLION at auction

A new record has been set for the most valuable game of all time after a sealed copy of Super Mario 64 was sold at auction for over one million pounds.

Retro games have been collected online and sold at different sales events for decades, and it appears things are only going to get more valuable.

This week’s record-breaking news was set by what is being labelled a pristine condition Nintendo 64 title, which sold for $ 1.56 million at auction (£1.12 million).

And what makes this story so compelling is that there are a lot of people who can check their own back catalogue of retro titles or dusty boxes of junk in the loft for something similar.

Super Mario 64 was first released by Nintendo in 1996, becoming the best-selling game on the Nintendo 64 console.

And with over 11 million copies sold, there’s a good chance you could find your own retro titles gathering dust or at car boot sales.

What makes this copy so valuable is the condition, with Super Mario 64 originally sold in cardboard boxes.

It makes finding one in mint condition all that harder, and a grading system exists for working out just how pristine a retro video game is.

As an example, the video game grading company Wata listed the $ 1.56 million-selling copy of Super Mario 64 at a 9.8 A++, which is almost a perfect score.

And the official Super Mario Auction page describes the unique lot number in the highest terms, telling potential bidders:

“Well — we’re a bit speechless on this one. What can we even say that would do this copy the justice it deserves?

“The cultural significance of this title and its importance to the history of video games is paramount, and the condition of this copy is just so breathtaking that we’re really at a loss here.

“If you have had your heart set on obtaining the highest graded copy of the single best-selling video game on the Nintendo 64 — the first 3D adventure of Nintendo’s mascot, Mario — we only have one piece of advice: this is not an opportunity to waste.”

The findings revealed by Many Spins revealed that across Europe, Super Mario 64 ranked as a firm favourite among 15 countries on the continent, including but not limited to Norway and Sweden, which both had an average monthly search volume of 1,600 for the game, followed by Austria (1,300), and Germany (9,900).

Duke Nukem was yet another popular choice among European countries, ranking as the most searched for retro video game in six, including Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.

Of those countries, the highest average monthly search volume came from Finland, with residents making 1,000 searches on average each month for the retro title. Bulgaria makes 210 searches per month on average, Slovakia makes 480, and Estonia, Lithuania, and Slovenia each make 140 each.

Sonic 3D Blast, Metal Slug and Devil May Cry also ranked as the favourite retro video games in numerous European countries, showing widespread popularity for the titles right across the region.

Car boot customer astounded as £10 horse harness sells for thousands 'must be a joke!'

The item had been stored in a dusty box at the owner’s home before he decided to try his luck at selling it on. He originally purchased the Celtic mount for £10 at a car boot sale in Middlesex as part of a “general box of old coins and bits of metal” two years ago – though the price he sold it on for was 200 times that amount.
Miguel Ángel Fuster Aparicio had not paid much attention to the item since he bought it, though he decided to get it valued when his father-in-law read a newspaper article about a similar find.

The piece was identified by experts as a late Iron Age horse harness mount, featuring an engraved curve-linear design complete with red champleve enamel and blue glass.

He was stunned to learn that the item dates back 2,000 years to the late Iron Age and could make him an estimated £2,000 at auction.

The landscape gardener’s rare possession went under the hammer today and soared past his expectations, raking in a whopping £3,800 at Hansons Auctioneers in Derbyshire.

Mr Aparicio said: “I watched the auction live with my partner and it was so exciting. We were thrilled by the result.

“We will be celebrating – and I must buy my father-in-law something. Without him, I would never have known it was potentially valuable.”

Decorative horse mounts of this kind were popular in the Roman and early-medieval periods, often used as symbols of status.

The unique style can be traced back to South East England, with the British Museum having a similar one from London.

Mr Aparicio added: “I still can’t believe it, I am very lucky. I bought it at a car boot sale in Middlesex about two years ago, maybe longer. I can’t remember exactly. It was in a general box of old coins and bits of metal that I paid around £10 for.

“I never spend much at car boots but like to buy old coins and metal toy cars, that sort of thing. Something else actually took my eye in the box the harness mount was in.

“I had no idea what it was, or that it was so old and valuable. After reading the article, my father-in-law said it might be worth something so we took it to Hansons. When I heard the valuation I thought, this is not possible – it must be a joke.

“But I did my internet research and now know all about its history. It’s by far the most important thing I’ve ever found at a car boot sale.”

Adam Staples, Hansons’ historical consultant, said: “We’re absolutely delighted for Miguel and his family. What an amazing car boot find.

“It’s an impressive example of a late Iron Age harness mount in very good condition considering its age.

“The Celtic artwork incorporates a subtly concealed animal face and I was expecting fierce competition for it at auction.”

Man sells home, buys RV to take 'work from home' on the road and to Zilker Park

AUSTIN (KXAN) — More people are renting and buying RVs than ever before, and there are no signs this trend will slow down as travel starts to pick up.

“My goal is to go to every state and national park,” said Scotty Carlisle, who was spending his Thursday afternoon working from Zilker Park out of his van.

“You don’t know what you have until you’ve lost it,” said Carlisle.

Being cooped up for months gave him time to reflect and think about what he wanted to do with his life. So, he sold most of his possessions, including his home, and bought a customized van.

“It definitely gave me a new perspective on social interactions and enjoying the outdoors and travelling and things like that,” Carlisle said.

The “RV Life” has grown very popular throughout the pandemic. Some people choosing to rent an RV, but others purchasing them.

“It is so easy, it is affordable, it is very safe,” said Jennifer Young with Outdoorsy, a company that allows people to rent RVs.

According to KOA’s 2021 North America camping report, more than 48 million U.S. households camped at least once in 2020, while the number of households that own RVs grew by 2.6 million. Now 9.6 million households across the nation own RVs.

Young says Outdoorsy has grown significantly during the pandemic with more people wanting to get out and about.

“We see a lot of people wanting to spend more time outdoors and also interestingly the way the world and this country is looking at how you work and how you live is also changing,” said Young.

For Carlisle that means working wherever he thinks is the best spot, sometimes from a beach or even the mountains.

“I am a cybersecurity systems engineer, I work full-time remote and doing it from Zilker Park is pretty nice,” Carlisle said. “I was really wanting to travel and save money and a van is the best way to do both those things.”

Renting an RV is easier than ever, especially on sites like Outdoorsy, where customers can rent an RV or put their own RV online to be rented by someone else.

Xbox Series X restocked with official wireless headset – Hurry before it sells out

The Xbox Series X console is back in stock in the UK, although only for a limited time.

According to Digital Foundry Deals, the Xbox Series X was briefly back in stock at Currys, although it looks like the console may already have sold out.

It could be worth trying it out for yourself, just in case you get lucky with the restock.

“Xbox Series X + Game Pass Ultimate bundle at Currys PC World,” reads a Digital Foundry tweet. “It looks like a few orders went through earlier this morning, but now whenever I visit the basket it’s empty.”

While the Xbox Series X console is in and out of stock, there’s better news for customers looking to get hold of the Xbox Wireless Headset.

“If you missed it yesterday, the Xbox Wireless Headset is finally back in stock after weeks of unavailability,” reads a follow-up tweet.

You can pick up the Xbox Wireless Headset for £89.99 from the Currys PC World website.

The wireless headset has been hugely popular since it launched shortly after the release of the console itself.

“Hear your games the way they were meant to be heard with the Microsoft Xbox Wireless Gaming Headset,” reads the official description.

“Compatible with spatial sound technologies such as Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS Headphone:X, you’ll hear the action take place around you.

“Every footstep, gunshot or line of dialogue will sound crisp and realistic thanks to the high-quality 40 mm drivers.

“And you can fine-tune your audio on the Xbox Accessories app, which includes equaliser settings, bass boost and more.”

The Xbox Wireless Headset also features auto-mute and voice isolation technology, which eliminates background noise.

One of the better features is the ability to adjust the volume with the rotating earcup dials.

The battery, meanwhile, is said to last for upwards of 15 hours: “Don’t let a dead battery stop you from winning the match. With up to 15 hours of battery life, the Xbox Wireless Headset will stick with you through long gaming sessions.”

Reviews for the headset have been hugely positive since launch, earning five-stars on sites like TechRadar.

Jack Dorsey's first tweet sells as an NFT for $2.9 million

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s first post on the social media platform was sold as a nonfungible token for $ 2,915,835.47 on Monday after a two-week open bid.

Dorsey said he would convert the winning bid into bitcoin and donate it to the charity GiveDirectly’s Africa Response.

 The tweet, “just setting up my twttr,” was sent March 21, 2006.

The winning bidder is Sina Estavi who, according to his Twitter, is the CEO of a blockchain company called Bridge Oracle.

A nonfungible token, more commonly known as an NFT, is a unique kind of digital asset that has skyrocketed in popularity this year.

An NFT is not actual ownership, copyrights or trademark of a digital item. Functionally, it’s more like proof of having an original in the form of a unique cryptocurrency token. Anyone can download a picture even after someone buys an NFT of it.

The lifespan of digital items are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, a public ledger, which will display who was the first to “own” it.

People have been pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the new market, spending breathtaking sums on NFTs for anything from tweets to clips of basketball highlights to music video snippets.

NFTs have come under criticism for the potential environmental impacts of having to produce more cryptocurrency, something which takes an incredible amount of processing power.
