Last November, a Super Mario Bros. version was released. 3 sold for $ 156,000. This record has just been broken by a number “in the sky”: 660,000 USD. According to Heritage Auctions, the auctioneer for the Super Mario Bros. game version. There are many reasons for the money to be so high: this is the oldest game they have, and also only produced in a very short period of time. Super Mario Bros. released in the US from mid to late 1986, at this time the game box does not have the code line ” Game Pak NES-GP “.
