Yes, the SEGA Pluto you read about last week is now up for sale on eBay, and bidding has already exceeded $7500. This console is was originally acquired for just $1 at a flea market, and has one major defect: a lid that doesn’t stay closed. On the bright side, it’s fully-functional as long as you find a way to keep the game lid shut. Continue reading for a video, more pictures, and additional information.
However, the seller has set a high reserve and already failed to sell the console in a previous auction using GameGavel. In that auction the bidding reached $7,600, but failed to reach the reserve. Whether the console sells this time depends on how high that reserve is. The fact the seller only paid a dollar for the machine and the lid is faulty suggests to me that $5,000 is a very good price to accept. I’d guess the reserve is somewhere around the $10,000 mark in which case I think he�ll be keeping it for a while longer.
