If I traded in my PS2, my Gamecube, about 20 Gamecube games and maybe 50 PS2 games and about 10 PS1 games, how much would I get?


This can be from anywhere; Game, Cash Converters, Gamestation...anywhere.

EDIT: In cash btw, not store credit.
#2
You might get around $600-700 for the games, I don't know about the consoles.

Don't expect anywhere near retail price for the games, nor the consoles.

500 bucks would be a damn miracle.

most of them shops rip you off

i traded in 3 brand new gamecube games into GAME once, all i got was £13

So that'd be like...£250?


And I know I'm not expecting retail, you're lucky to get like 20% of what the shops resell the games at.

At my local stores, if you want cash, they take 10% off what you would have gotten in store credit. For example, if my trade was worth $100 store credit, I would only get $90 in cash. My local store is also very friendly and they do price estimates over the phone.

MAJOR POINT HERE:
Don't expect anything for the PS1 games, they are too old. I had an Xbox game from 2004 and they said that was too old, so you might not get anything for some of your games.

PS2 - $40 maybe
GameCube - $30

20 GameCube at $5 a game = $100
50 PS2 a $5 a game = $250
10 PS1 = who wants that?

Yeah $500 would be a miracle

I wouldn't take the PS1 games into an actual game shop, I realise I'd get like 10p, but I might get a tiny amount from one of those Cash Converter shops.

I'm also planning to try and play them off each other ie get a quote from Game, take the games to Gamecenter and use their "We'll beat other trade-in prices!" policy against them and make a bigger profit.

My friend did that. Bought a game for £12 in Gamestation, finished it, took it to trade back in, they'd give him £8, took it to Game, they said £18, took it back to Gamestation, they had to pay him £20!

if you sell it to a store don't expect much.You probably better off putting it on ebay.


That's what I'm planning to do, get a quote from other stores, then try to sell privately/eBay.


If no-one'll pay more for them within a month I'll just trade them in.

It's $5 a game? I remember trading in Burnout and Pikmin a while back and I got like $25.

I think they might pay more in credit than the do in cash.

One of the games is GH2 with the guitar controller.


I also have 2 controllers for each console.


Would these be worth anything?

sell it ebay or something, you won't get anywhere near enough in a game shop.

Can anyone even recommend some good sites to sell/swap them apart from eBay?


Think anyone would swap all that for a PRS SE Custom?

The Lengend of Zelda Collectors Disk isn't for resale
It says so on the box but its worth a shot. If they say, "No" try eBay for that one.

I would expect at the most 300 or 350.

Blockbuster will screw you over so don't go there, especially if your looking to get somthing out of the PS1 games. When I traded in my PS1 I got like 20 dollars and one of the games was worth 25 cents.

What are you trading the stuff in for? New system or what?

Is that 300 dollars or pounds?


And it's to fund the "Buy Me A PRS Guitar" charity.

You can sell FF7 for like $60 on Amazon. Depending on how low you put your price [like around $10-15] for the PS2 and GC games you might actually get a get bit of money. The problem is I don't know how fast games sell on Amazon and I only used it to buy 2 games, I never sold any on there.

Check it out, you might get a few sales.
