According to the site, the copy sold $1.56 million on 11th July.
This sum eclipses previous “most expensive games” sold at auction.
This also includes the previous “most expensive” game ever, The Legend of Zelda.
The reason behind such a steep price tag is due to the pristine condition of Super Mario 64‘s box;- grading company WataGames gave the game a near-perfect score of 9.8 A++. (No, I don’t know either).
The key thing is that this score is far higher than any other product seen on the site previously.
As of time of press, there is no word on who bought the game.
