Game Point makes news on Kotaku

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

At 4:30pm today Game Point made headlines on Kotaku by purchasing a box of cereal. This however wasn't just any box of cereal, it was a 22-year-old unopened "Nintendo Cereal System" box of cereal. This was the exact cereal that I myself spent Saturday mornings consuming while playing Super Mario Bros. till my hands were raw. Before anyone thinks that i'm insane let me just say, i'm a huge Nintendo fan. I collect basically anything and everything Nintendo. A few years back I found one of these going on eBay for nearly $100 and it didn't even have the cereal in it. No, it was going for around $100 for JUST THE BOX! Since that time i've kept my eye open for another and when I found this listing for an unopened box I had to jump on it. The bidding got pretty out-of-hand in the last 15 min but as you probably can tell, I was pretty determined. Anyway, i've decided to print out a copy of the article and bring the box down to the store whenever it arrives so anyone who would like to see what a $200 box of cereal looks like can come by and check it out...and heck, if you get hungry, we might even kick back and pour a bowl,  just like in 1988.
