    Is there a reason it only sold 20 copies?
    I wrote a game, and it never even got published, so perhaps I should sell it for...1 million dollars... :lol:

    Probably because it was jsut as good as the ET game.

    No game on this planet is worth £250K no matter how rare it is.

    Is it the original, 16-colour, floppy disk edition?

    That's gotta be worth a few thousand $$$ :D

    I doubt this sells for anyway near half a million US. The person just wants to get as much as possible out of the auction. By asking for such a high amount they ar ehoping to maximize what people offer them. I don't see this game going for more than a few thousand. That is too high in my book but some people have more disposable income than common sense.

    Or maximize their exposure and free advertising. After all, we're discussing it here! So this is yet another free ad for them.

    Yep, what better way to get your item noticed that to put a ridiculous price tag on it.

    Buy it for £250,000, insure it for £400,000, and get someone to brake into my house and steal it. :D
