What is Sega doing these days

How much are the old consoles and video games worth today?

Sitting with fingers crossed in front of the big TV, blowing again into the cassette and hoping that it works and that you can compete against friends, siblings or even parents - many of us have these childhood memories, on rainy days, sunk deep into the sofa, but high concentrated. Whether you grew up on a Super Nintendo, Sega Mega Drive or even a Commodore 64, you will be surprised how much those old, dusty consoles and computer games are worth today. Check out a few examples that have been featured in the weekly computer and video game auctions on Catawiki.
