What must be the most expansive collection of video games ever assembled is up for auction on eBay.

Bidding starts at $550,000.

If that seems high, consider everything that's included in the lot: more than 330 consoles, 6,850 games, 220 controllers and 185 accessories. (A complete inventory in .pdf format can be viewed here.)

Why is the seller, a lifelong collector from Milan, parting with it after 30 years?

"I just have too much things," he writes in the description, "and the space to store them is finished long ago." (h/t @koddos)
