With Nintendo set to release its Switch console for $300, we wanted to find out just what is the most valuable arcade game. We did a little digging and didn’t get too far before we reached an answer.
“Williams’ Blaster cockpit is believed to be the world’s most valuable arcade machine, with an estimated worth of $12,000 (£7,388).,” according to Guinness World Records.
“Released in 1983, only five cockpits were ever created.”
Blaster is a well-known arcade game that finds the player blasting through plenty of different stages. From that, you can pretty much tell why the game is called Blaster.
Blaster is a very simple game but for people who love old school arcade games, it is highly sought after. With a price tag of $12,000 it far exceeds buying any mobile gaming device or, a device such as the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
If you’re lucky, you can find some arcade gaming sites selling these machines for less than the $12,000 estimated worth.
So, while plenty of the games and toys featured in our articles seem outside your reach, don’t worry, you can always try to find an old dusty arcade game that is worth a small fortune.
