A muscular fellow wielding a sledgehammer walks on stage to demonstrate the durability of the Greed Island game in a JoyStation Console with a player already inside, by trying to smash it to bits with his hammer but fails. The Auctioneer explains that due to the "Mysterious Energy", it's protected against external attacks so as long as a player is inside the game. The Auctioneer then introduces the player inside the game called Jeitsari, who owns 7 copies of Greed Island which the combined value of the games equals a total of 5.8 billion Jenny Symbol 2011.svg.[1]

The Auctioneer further elaborates on how the auction house procured several copies of Greed Island due to Jeitsari's contract and then details what happens when a player dies within the game. With the explanations completed the Auctioneer then begins the bidding at 1 billion Jenny Symbol 2011.svg. A fervent bid war takes place between attendees #71 & #16 and during it attendee #201 unintentionally doubles the amount, but in the end #16 manages to win the copy of the game.[1]
