I still remember buying an overseas copy of Grand Theft Auto III for my PlayStation 2 at the time as the "Hot Coffee" version was banned in Australia, so I imported it from New Zealand for something like $150 at the time. But that's about my limit... $90,000 on the other hand? That game better get up, clean my house, cook me dinner and do my work for me everyday, right?

Well, some collectors will happily pay $90,000 for a rare game like Extra Terrestrials -- yeah, the one that no one would remember from 1983 for the Atari 2600. A game released in the same year I was born is sitting on eBay for $90,000 and could be the rarest game in existence. A physical copy of Extra Terrestrials is so rare as it was one of the last games manufacturered for the Atari 2600 in 1984, as the wave of the huge video game crash of 1983 happened.

The seller on eBay is called 'gamewizard69' that explains: "the only confirmed private owner of this game right now", with the only other copy being in the PC Museum. It will come with the cartridge only, no retail packaging and is in an "acceptable condition". Yay, for $90,000 it can be all yours.
