Super Mario Bros. 3 This is the most expensive game title ever since a copy sold at auction last Friday for $ 156,000 since 1990. The auction started at $ 62,500 and the auction was attended by 20 bidders. The NES game easily defeated the previous record holder, Super Mario Bros., Which sold for $ 114,000 in July.
According to the Heritage Auction, which sold the game, the game’s record-breaking price came down to a few factors. The first was its relatively rare box design, bearing the word “Brothers”. Formatted to the left at its front, where it slightly obscures Mario’s hand. Later editions moved the term to the center-right.
However, this rare design only represents part of the price, as one of these variants was sold at the auction house in July for only $ 38,400. What accounts for the remaining value seems to be the situation in which it was sold. The game was given a Vata 9.2 A + rating for its position, which rates both the quality of the box and the quality of its original seal. Meanwhile, the previous version had a slightly lower rating of Vata 9.0a.
