Saturday Night Fail: A $5,250video game cartridge

Written by Juan Cena on Sunday, November 15 2009 and posted in SWRT
Someone paid $5,250 for an absolutely obscure Atari 2600 video game on e-bay. Apparently "The Music Machine", described as a knockoff of Kaboom!, was a game aimed at the Christian market and only sold in Christian bookstores (sort of like how the the Guitar Hero knockoff Guitar Praise is sold today). Thus finding one in mint condition (still wrapped in plastic no less) is pretty rare. Either this means the recession is really over, or someone with money wants in rub it in everyone's face.
