what are we looking at here:

-the very first model of gameboys that came out (the big thick grey ones)


and a few of the games with it; metroid, some japanese samurai thing and a few others....


unfortunately the gameboy doesnt work, for some reason, i think later on I'll try and bring it somewhere to get it fixed. I'm not really a gamer or a collector for those kinds of things but I'm guessing even fixed it's probably not worth much. I should probably hold on to it until I'm like 50, right? But by then I probably won't want to sell it.

I don't know, how much you guys think I'd get for the fixed gameboy and the games.

discuss??

Probably about nothing

Here's an all-original one, very clean, including original packaging and 8 games for 110 pounds.

A functional gameboy on its own would probably be under 10 pounds, and likely under 5.

Here's one with 7 games for 10.50

There's millions of them. They're not gonna be collectible any time soon. The reason some old things are collectible is because they're desirable and hard to obtain. The original gameboy isn't much of either. Desirable, maybe, but not worth paying more than 10 pounds for.

ahh shit eh, i never considered that, the packaging. I'm sure that adds alot of value to it like most collectibles.
