    Fancy owning a slice of video game history? The infamous and ultra-rare PlayStation SNES prototype console dug up in 2015 has finally been put up for auction.

    You'll need a decent chunk of change to make a bid, however. After a few hours on sale, the console is at $31k (£23k), and is likely to go much higher before the sale concludes on 27th February.

    Nintendo and Sony's brief dalliance during the SNES-era is reasonably well documented - a romance between the two was on the cards with the intent of producing a disc-based console together - before the liason broke down and Sony struck out solo.

    The current bid is $310,000 lol.

    Edit: scratch that, with buyer's premium it is $370,000.

    It's at $420,000 right now, with buyers premium. Looks like it might sell for around half a million dollars. That is just nuts!

    It's the same one, just that the other stories were "announcing" it would be sold.
