Submission + - Enthusiast Releases Hundreds of Sega Prototypes

GerbilSoft writes: drx, the guy who became famous for dumping several high-profile prototypes, has beat his own record. Today, he has released a set of over 1,000 Sega prototypes, making it the biggest prototype release in history.

Usually, few prototypes see the light of the day, due to scarcity, unwillingness of owners to release them, and prices, which can sometimes reach 5-figures. This deprives the majority of gamers of the ability to see games' features that had to be cut from the games due to the lack of time or resources. To see just how generous the release is, multiply 1,000 by $100, which is the average price of prototypes on eBay. Crazy.

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
