Fun Factory auctions video games to highest bidders

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Children and video game lovers would have enjoyed a special sale in Biloxi Saturday. "Fun Factory" hosted an auction, selling all its amusements to the highest bidder.

The children's entertainment center on Eisenhower Drive has been closed for about three months. Auctioneer Benny Taylor sold dozens of video games, pinball machines and arcade toys.

Buyers came from as far away as California and Massachusetts to take part in the unusual auction sale.

"The thing about this auction is, it brings a family environment in that you normally don't see at most of the commercial and real estate auctions we do, other auctions that we do as well," said Benny Taylor, with Taylor Auction Company.

There were several classic video games on the auction block, including "Space Invaders" and "Ms. Pac Man."
