Industry legend John Romero, the co-founder of id Software and co-creator of Doom, Quake, and Daikatana, is auctioning off his original floppy disks for Doom 2 on eBay. The current bid is now up to $850, but many would argue that Romero should be giving things away for free after what happened with Daikatana and him trying to "make you his bitch". "I will sign these disks if you like", Romero wrote in the eBay description, leading us to wonder if that signature would increase or decrease the collector's value (we kid).

According to Romero, "These are the originally shipped DOOM 2 floppies (3.5") for PC and compatibles. "These are only the 3.5 disks". But 60 bids later, it has hit the $900 mark, with the auction scheduled to end at 6:13 a.m. PT / 9:13 a.m. ET tomorrow.

Both Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory are expected to get another MP, while South Australia is slated to lose one MP. According to the data Darwin was the most expensive city to buy in, whereas Hobart was the cheapest for home purchasers.

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.
