Honestly, I think it would be wise for eskroto to contact Konami about his intention of selling. He might get a good price from them as a whole! And the collection stays intact.

What's going to happen now is that he will sell maybe 60% and can not part with the other 40% for reason of too low bid prices. In the end he still needs that cabinet to stack the remaining games. A ruined collection.

Not sure if Konami has any museum of their own. Or even interest to maintain such...

Yeah Konami will buy the games and feature them on pachinkos.. what a let down for a company that owns such huge amount of great IPs.

Might as well admit that Konami is hardly the worst culprit in this case. Video games as they used to be in the 80's and 90's are basically dead - games of the future won't even be Zombie Apocalypse-proof. Smile

Konami is still making (or at least publishing) console titles, e.g. recently Contra: Rogue Corps was released and Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls was announced. I think the worst you could say about these is that they’re just rehashes of old IP, but really that’s been going on for a long time already.

But these are smaller, more indie-like titles, as opposed to AAA titles like the Metal Gear franchise has been in recent times, which they stopped making. Which I can kind of understand, there’s an enormous amount of money and financial risk involved in those productions (at company-killer level). Although they’re still making Pro Evolution Soccer, too.

LOL, even if I was to sell my Konami collection at a third of these asking prices I would be a very very happy man, haha. (but I'm not selling)

Latok: The previous batch 'from own collection' auctions ended already Sunday. As far as I know, he is preparing the next set listed next month.

Most likely there will be a post, when the next batch is available.

would be interesting to know how many auctions lead to actual sells. I doubt that it were that many, especially because of the high starting prices. Am I wrong?

Around half had bids before ending.
