John Romero is selling the original copy of Doom 2
28 June, 2017, 23:54
A copy of the latter, without its box or manuals, is now on eBay with its current bid set at $900. Romero announced the sale on Twitter, pledging to sign the discs if the highest bidder requests it. And Romero will even sign them if you like, so make a bid sometime before tomorrow morning. "The version is 1.7 (the first DOOM 2 version)".
Update: The auction has ended with a winning bid of $3150.
In a variation of "What Would You Do For a Klondike Bar", the question here is "What would you pay for original 3.5-inch floppies of Doom 2?".
The auction began at $10, and is set to end today at 15:13.
The condition of the set is "very good" with no defects or issues other then the wear and tear of the glue that holds the labels on the disks but it is twenty-three years old. If you want a boxed copy of the original floppy disk version, circa 1994, there's a copy available on eBay right now for $75.
Now, 3.5-inch floppy drives have gone the way of the dodo, but you can own a piece of history even if you don't intend to boot it up.
