Zelda Video Game Sells for $870,000

Zelda

Episode 1811

A sealed copy of the first generation of Zelda sold recently at auction for $870,000. Leo says the story is that the game was never opened after being given as a Christmas present and represents the earliest known copy of the video game, in unopened pristine condition. The sale bypasses the previous record of a sale of Super Mario Brothers, which sold in March for $660,000. Could $1 million be far behind?

Leo Reviews The Nintendo Switch

Episode 1369

Leo spent a couple of hours playing with Zelda on the Nintendo Switch and he was lefty pretty impressed. However, for adult hands, he found the controllers to be a bit small and uncomfortable. Battery life is pretty good at about 3-4 hours of steady play. The big problem right now is that the Switch doesn't have a lot of games at the moment, and of what it does have, most are dumb like Milking Cows. But it was launched with Zelda and Mario is coming. So there's plenty of people to play with until games get ported over.
