Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger may have legions of dedicated fans but Squaresoft's not the only company whose SNES RPGs attracted a rabid following. A copy of Ape and HAL Laboratory's EarthBound just sold on Ebay for $1,000 bucks.
Don't believe us? Check out the auction for yourself (thanks, GoNintendo). It's apparently a brand new, factory sealed copy of the game - not that that makes it any less crazy.
A year ago, the ESRB rated EarthBound for the Wii - presumably a sign that it was coming to the Virtual Console service. However, there's been no news about it since and the theory is that music copyright issues are preventing the re-release.
