Entire collection must be purchased in one piece
The collector also explains on eBay that he has repeatedly started selling his collection only to start buying new consoles again. But now he wants to make things clear. In the description he makes it clear that he does not want to sell the consoles individually, but only the entire collection in one piece. Museums could also get in touch with him. More than 1,500 users are currently watching the offer. The rather steep price should act as a deterrent for many.
