    Hi guys,

    I am in a kind of tight spot with money right now, and am considering selling my PS2 setup. I realize I won't get near the money that I put into it, but I do need to consider selling it at least. Here is what I have:

    PS2 (bought in summer of 2001)
    Monster Optical cable
    Monster Component cables
    (2) Sony controllers
    (1) Sony memory card

    And these games:
    Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3
    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
    Grand Theft Auto III
    Gran Turismo 3 A-spec
    Devil May Cry
    Onimusha
    Star Wars Starfighter
    Final Fantasy X
    Silent Hill 2
    Resident Evil: Code Veronica
    NHL 2002
    (the last 5 games were played probably less than an hour each.)

    What do you all think would be a fair price to ask for everything? I am trying to decide whether I could get enough for it all to justify selling it, or if I couldn't get enough for it where it would be worth more to me to keep it, if that makes sense. Any advice you all could give would really be appreicated, thanks!

    I'd think $400 or $450. It would be tough to get much more than that though. A good deal of those games can be bought for 20 new, so used ones should factor a bit less.

    Good luck with whatever you decide.

    One thing is for sure--DO NOT GET CASH VALUE AT A MAJOR CHAIN! Places like Gamestop and Babbage's are terrible places to sell video games for cash. I always use eBay and have great success. If I was posting this as a package, I would put a "Buy It Now" price of $450-$500 and if no one bites, let it go to the auction.

    If you need a certain price, be sure to set the reserve price at that level (if you will not take less than, say, $350, set that as the reserve price. If no one meets that price, the auction is cancelled). Another option is half.com, but I prefer eBay.

    The big question for me is whether you will get a higher price selling everything as a package or individually. I debate this with people quite a bit, but since most of your games are older, I would sell the entire thing as one bundle. Good luck and keep us posted!

    I caculated in my head and estimated around $250, $300 tops. Remember you are talking about used stuff and most of those games are greatest hits.

    If you do decide to sell, sell pieces instead of the whole thing at once. It's more work but you'll always get more when its broken down in to chunks.
