A rare 1980s video game has sold for the equivalent of $50,000

The game is called Stadium Events and was released in 1987 for an early Nintendo console called NES.

Reviewers say that game isn’t even that good, but it’s highly collectible  because few copies still exist.

The game involved a control pad you stood on – a bit like a Wii Fit. The first of its kind in the 1980’s.

Nick Parker, who used to work for Nintendo, said: “You don’t see games going for that sort of price, it is very unusual.”
