BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — It never went to market, and is one of the last known copies, and it just sold for a big price at auction.

A Nintendo Play Station video game console fetched $360,000.

The buyer is Greg McLemore, who is a video game collector, and founder of of pets.com and toys.com.

He says aside from the purchase of a home, it's the single most expensive thing he has ever bought.

Nintendo Play Station came from an eventual failed 1991 partnership between Sony and Nintendo.

The console is believed to be the only prototype remaining.

Sony went on to make its own video game consoles, releasing Playstation in 1994.
