Gaming is more than a fun hobby – it is one of the most profitable sectors of the entertainment industry in the world.
But it turns out that it isn’t just game developers who could be raking in a small fortune – you could be too. We all know that there are plenty of hard to find retro games that could fetch you a tidy sum so you can treat yourself to, oh, say a couple of new games.
But out there, somewhere, lie cartridges and discs that could make you a small fortune. Granted, these are rare – but someone must own them. And whoever does, could make thousands.
We have pulled together some of the most valuable games and shared their worth, which has been estimated based on previous sells on sites like eBay according to the website Racketboy.
Naturally, all units need to be complete and in perfect condition or the worth would plummet. The estimated worth could climb even higher in some instances for any that happen to be completely factory sealed and untouched.
So what are you waiting for? Get in the attic and see if you can track down any of these bad boys that may have been obliviously flogged to you for a quid at a car boot sale:
