Man finds Sega stuff in skip; gets skip in his step

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 £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 didn’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.
