When something is undoubtedly a success, you can believe that it will be marketed for availability to everyone. Movies, music, and even video games; in this case consoles specifically. So you would think that something that is considered one of, if not “The”, most popular consoles ever in history wouldn’t be that hard to find. You’d think.

It’s funny when life imitates art, especially when it’s comedy-like in this case. I enjoy the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. If you’ve ever seen the show, there’s a particular episode called “The Nerdvana Annihilation” where one of the main characters named Leonard Hofstadter bids $800 on a whim for what he thinks is a prop from the classic 1960 movie The Time Machine. Well, he ends up winning the auction because no one else bid and now is faced with paying the $800 amount and getting something that he didn’t think he would. I think you can see more or less where this story is going?
