I remember reading a really interesting article in an early issue of Retro Gamer magazine. It was a profile of retrogaming prototype collectors and their practices. Very cloak-and-dagger stuff, as many refused to be identified for the article. It was clear that their collections were worth five- or six-figures. Now I can't remember which issue I had read it in. Does anyone remember this article? Maybe some on AA were profiled in it! ;)

Prices on prototype all depend on how much one is willing to pay for it, if the game was released or not, if it is for the atari 2600 or a lesser loved system.
For me it seems that atari 2600 collectors are the onces willing to pay top dollar for prototypes. Maybe because most 2600 collectors have been around when the 2600 hit the shelfs, and now have a good job, that allows them to pay for such items.
I have sold my videopac/odyssey2 a few years ago and I did get a nice price for them, enabling me to buy the ps3 and xbox360 when they hit the market. But because the market for this system is a lot smaller there wasn't that much demand for the games.
Would also love to read that article.
