Died 5 years ago, I don't understand how this is suddenly newsworthy. Even HLN.be picked up this story :wtf:

Just a nice story.

I've played competitively multiplayer Tetris like this before (I think max up to 8 players), it's a fun system. There is a strategic aspect to saving up lines to dump all at once to knock an opponent out.

A sealed not for resale Halo (give to employees and sold at the Microsoft store) sold for $9000 at auction just now. Literally bananas for a modern game to be worth that much, regardless of circumstances. In the last few months, 4 have sold on Ebay for less than $20 unsealed. That's a hell of a price to pay for shrink wrap.
