With less than a day left, there’s quite the following for this ColecoVision auction. Basically what it boils down to is the box in the auction. It’s not your regular gray box, but rather a purple box making this a prototype ColecoVision box; thanks to retroillucid for pointing that out over at atariage. The only place the purple box can be seen is over at ColecovisionZone(thanks to Murph74 at atariage), where you can see Arnold Greenberg’s 1982 photo of him displaying the ColecoVision console with the “Purple box”.
It will be one heck of a show to watch tomorrow, but too bad the majority of us work during the auctions end. The auction just jumped from $400 to $1025. Damn my work!
