Can I sell this Gameboy?

Asked by blueberry_kid (5643 points ) July 16th, 2011

I’ve had this gameboy for a very long time. I don’t have the charger and I can’t find the charger anywhere. It’s not in a very good condition but, I mean, it’s usable and red and pretty. I’ll even throw in a game Is it sell-able? Does anyone know where I can sell this stupid thing? Anything helps!

1. This is not craigslist
2. There are dozens of models of Gameboy; you need to specify exactly what you have.
3. Gameboys are extremely common. It depends on the model, of course, but few Gameboys sell for more than $30, especially if they’re in poor condition.
4. And they don’t sell for anything if you don’t have the charger. You have an incomplete product.

i bet someone on craigslist wants to buy it

$55 is too much for a game boy. The highest I would go for would be $20 (assuming that it’s in good condition)

I have an old gameboy advance that I’d rather just keep. I sold my DS so this is all I have to play my old gameboy games, which I still find fun. Pokemon Emerald is a gem. Don’t laugh at me.

I would like to sell it AT MOST for $55. I honestly think its worth $5. And @Ivan I know this isnt craigslist. I had to edit this question maybe four times. Im asking whether or not it is able to be sold.

I bought a Gameboy Advance for my daughter. I paid £3 (~$2.50?) including some games

Please specify the model.

Gameboy
Gameboy Pocket
Gameboy Color
Gameboy Advance
Gameboy Advance SP
Gameboy Micro

And that doesn’t include all the special edition releases.

Gamestop doesn’t buy Gameboys anymore.

You could try selling it to some privately owned used game shop. But without the charger and in poor condition, I highly doubt they’ll take it.

@Ivan The gameboy is a Gameboy Advance SP. Its only four years old. And Gamestop won’t buy it so I don’t know what to do with it. Should I toss it? Or craigslist.

Ivan's avatar

You could try Craigslist, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up. I doubt you’d get $20 for it.

blueberry_kid's avatar

@Ivan Exactly why I was asking if I should just toss it. It’s prettty much worthless. I wouldn’t pay $5 for the thing.

@blueberry_kid

Toss it in storage some where. In 20 years, someone will get some joy out of it.
