SEGA Pluto returns to eBay a second time

After a potential private sale to an individual fell through, Roger Vega is giving eBay another go to try to sell his two-of-a-kind SEGA Pluto. This time, the starting bid is set at a whopping $20,000.

In his previous listing, Vega set an unknown reserve price, and the the bidding ended at $15,500 with the reserve still unmet. This starting price gives us an idea of what Vega believes the system is worth. Of course, it’s hard to put a price on the Pluto since there is only one other of the prototype systems known to be in existence, and there’s not a clear precedence to go from.

Vega found the Pluto at a flea market about six years ago and bought it for only $1. As far as we know, SEGA has not officially commented on its existence since the two systems have been made public, but what we do know is the Pluto is a essentially a Saturn with built-in Netlink.

If he can manage to sell it at his starting price, it would have to be one of the most profitable finds in video game history. Good luck this time, Vega!

Here’s the new eBay listing.
