Sega Pluto eBay auction ends at $15,500, reserve not met

Better luck next time?

 

Roger Vega, whom we recently interviewed about his rare prototype console the Sega Pluto, has just seen in the end of his eBay auction.

Ten days, 89 bids and 47 bidders later the auction ended at a staggering $15,500. However, the reserve was not met. I repeat:

The reserve was not met.

Maybe next it’ll be a live, televised auction?

    Seems the dude is getting a bit greedy if he thinks that isn’t enough.

    • All I can say is that Roger seemed like a genuinely nice guy in my email conversations with him. I think that shows in the interview we did as well.

      We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next. But I can’t see collectors rushing back for a third auction.

  2. Yikes.

  3. Well, as long as more aren’t found, time is on his side and the value will only go up. I’m wondering if the reserve is $20k? Can’t imagine it’s more than that unless he’s had it professionally appraised.
