The $1 million Tetris game goes under the hammer

Many of us, who have been playing video games, know that Tetris was originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union. Our news for you is that one of only 10 of the Sega Genesis versions of this game is now being offered by someone on eBay for, hold on, $1 million. Why does it cost an arm and leg literally… because the great Pajitnov himself signs it? Don’t you think he would deserve some royalty on this?

The owner describes this copy for Sega’s 16-bit console as ‘rare, exclusive, elusive, obscure and desirable centerpiece.’ Well, I bet it is, at this rate! He bought the cartridge for $15,530.
