Tengen's Tetris story gets all the press, but the Sega-published Mega Drive (Genesis) version of Tetris is perhaps the rarest version of the game in existence. The game saw an extremely limited initial release in 1989, and less than ten copies are known to exist today.
One of these copies -- signed by creator Alexey Pajitnov, to sweeten the deal -- is now up for auction at eBay. It's a prized rarity to be certain, but is it really worth a starting bid of one million dollars?
The seller doesn't seem to think so, as he claims that "all serious offers will be considered." A pair of bids over $20,000 have already been rejected, though, so don't expect to pick this one up for ten bucks plus shipping.
