Sealed Atari Game Sells for Over $5000

Well, there are plenty of games out there that sell for a pretty penny.  Who would have ever thought The Music Machine for the Atari 2600 would be one of them?  Recently on EBay, the Atari 2600 game sold for $5,250.  The game was still sealed in it’s original factory packaging and came complete with everything.  The game when it was first released way back when was said to only have been sold in religious bookstores and is now a rare find for collectors.

Well, while the game doesn’t seem like anything too exciting, I’m sure this just made one collector very happy.

    The Music Machine? By reading, what I can see, on the back cover it doesn’t seem much like a music game.

    It says “Read the booklet and learn a valuable lesson.” I guess the seller was never tempted enough to learn his valuable lesson. Instead he just saved it for a long time and sold it for way more then he paid for it. lol

    I don’t see why anyone would pay that much money for an old outdated video game…But hey, it’s his money..
