Because as previously reported, last week was sold at 3 Heritage Auctions a copy of the NES game Super Mario Bros. for 156,000 U.S. dollars.

"We couldn't be more pleased about breaking the world record for the second time in the same year", said Valarie McLeckie, Heritage Auctions' director of video games, in a press release. In terms of iconic status, it has one of the biggest followings of any Mario game before or since. To further emphasize that point, a sealed first run copy of Super Mario Bros.

Twenty bidders battled to spend the most ever paid for a video game. 3 with this particular packaging are rare. Most gamers recognize the cover art of the game, with Mario gliding through the sky with his raccoon cap and the title of the game centered above him.

If you think that games have been getting too expensive these days, perhaps this news might not be for you. The reason why this version is special is also because this was the earliest in the whole "Super Mario Bros".

That makes original sealed copies of the game a high value item for collectors all over the world. As Heritage Auctions brings up, this is a very rare copy of the game where "Bros." is organized to one side on the case, covering with Mario's glove. The difference? It was only graded 9.0 A.

A sealed copy of the premium "Super Mario Bros".

"That said, it's no surprise that another Mario game, which so many of us grew up with, would set the new bar", the company said in a statement.

3 is broadly considered as a standout amongst other platformers, time, and a minimum of one game collector has a opinion that it's worth more than some other game ever.

A sealed copy of 1998's Pokémon Red for GameBoy likewise sold for $84,000 at a similar closeout, establishing a precedent for a Pokémon title.
