Your old game console could be worth thousands on eBay – check if your device can make you money – Liku

Old game consoles may look like chunks of plastic, but some devices have amazing resale value.

eBay sellers are making real money for their old gaming consoles – and you can do that too by listing some of these tech fossils.

Atari Pong Home Game Console

“Games have to be almost playable on their own so people know what’s going on,” Atari co-founder and video game creator Nolan Bushnell once said. “So this is how ‘Pong’ was formed。”

In 1975, Pong was one of the first games to evolve from its big, boxy arcade form to a home console—it was so simple that even monkeys could play Pong.

Don’t bet the farm on your Pong profits – a used but fully functional 1976 Pong console is on the eBay marketplace for $99.99.

The introduction of the Nintendo 64 was a turning point in the gaming industry – the console introduced 3D graphics and four-player gaming capabilities for the first time.

Over the years, Nintendo has released regional and limited-edition consoles in funky colors and emblazoned with 1990s cultural icons like Pikachu.

The rarest will fetch well over six figures on eBay — but a standard black N64 system is worth about $50.

In 2004, the 24k gold Game Boy was released in a contest with only six winners out of 25,000 candidates – the gold-dipped handheld has been kept under wraps in the years since, with some suspecting the device does it exist.

The seventh gold console was made for a Zelda trivia giveaway hosted by GamesTM, but the winner never made their score public.

If you have one, you can basically set your own price since one has never been proven or sold in public.

An Xbox is a device where the condition of the product is a major factor in pricing.

A factory-sealed original Xbox sells for more than $7,000 on eBay — to lure potential buyers, sellers point out that the console is stored in a “smoke-free, pet-free home.”

Meanwhile, a complete Xbox system is under $150 — a good deal for buyers for a battered but functional Xbox with two controllers and 36 games for $230 ‘s transaction.

Xbox President Phil Spencer says the Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s fastest-selling console ever — and at the same time, the Playstation 5 is pulling off shelves faster than Sony can make them.

eBay sellers can tap into this hungry consumer market by keeping their hardware in good condition and detaching from it at the right time.
