A Greek gamer has blogged about his joy of finding five brand new Sega Mega Drive II consoles and six new GameGear handhelds thrown away in a skip next to a Greek toy store.
Although the boxes were dusty, their contents were completely intact. Just imagine how much these consoles would have been worth back in the day – over Â£1,000, easily. Shame to think they could have potentially ended up in a landfill.
I once saw a boxed copy of Ballz on the Mega Drive in a skip but didnâ€™t touch it. The builders were hanging around the skip at the time having a fag so I would have looked like a right skank.
Does it say something about me that I find that quite a tragic story? Those poor consoles! What a lucky find/rescue!
I think most gamers would find it tragic. I wonder if he went back the next day to see if anything else had been lobbed?
After a find like that, I’d probably go out of my way to check that skip every day.
