Nintendo 64 Disk Drive: Collector shows the incredibly rare Dev Kit

The world of video game collectors will always know the small and big emotions, but the amazing tie-heart of the scene will amaze even the speakers. Now that time has come again with the release of the unopened Nintendo 64 Disk Drive Dev Kit.

Collecting video games and related hardware has long been a discipline that will change hands for a lot of money. The six-digit size is now normal.
