Yep, that is some crazy money! I wonder how the three buyers are going to share it though?

This has become quite the "talk" over at Nintendo Age!  You do have to wonder how three people will share the game.

With that much money involved you have no idea how people will act. I sure wouldn't want to be in that situation!

I'd sneak into the bank vault (or wherever they'd agree to keep it), rip it open and play it. Then post the video on YT and send the other 2 owners links via email
