    What would a one year old, in nice condition ps2 with box, extra sony controller and 4 games (GTA3, GT3, Tony Hawk 3, and Virtua Fighter 4) be worth on the used market ? Just looking for a ballpark figure.

    I would say, around $325 - $350. SELL IT NOW, before E3... there may be a price-drop. [​IMG]

    Wow, with 4 nice games[​IMG] Most packages you see for sale have the crappiest titles bundled.

    I'd say VF4 & GTA3 would be worth about $30 each, THPS3 $25, and GT3 $15 (at the most since it's now $20 new), the extra controller $20, the PS2 $225. Hey look, that's right around where Rob put it [​IMG] That would include shipping I'd say, and the person would still be making out better than buying used products at GameStop.

    Don't do it! Keep your gaming goodness! [​IMG]
    Seriously, though... $300-325 sounds about right.

    If you sold it, try to get at least $325, though you really should hold on to it.

    Thanks for the replies. That's more than I expect to get for it but one can hope. Morgan - Why shouldn't I sell it ? It was fun for a while but I just don't see anything good coming.

    Bad news Michael (unless you already sold it). They dropped the price of the PS2 down to $199, and peripheral prices dropped too.
    Used PS2's will probably fetch around $175 initially, maybe less.

    I say hold onto it because you will most definitely be able to find some more use for it in the coming year(s).

    Yeah I heard the news last night. It was expected, no one knew how soon. After looking at the ebay scene, I didn't expect to get more than around 200-250. I suppose I'll hang on to it now, in case something worthwhile does crop up. (Doubtful)

    I think gamestop is now selling used PS2's for $169. I'd argue that you could only get $150 now for a used PS2, console only.
    Darn fine deal, I think. I'll probably be looking for one in the next month. gotta have time to let the SVS purchase fade from the SO's memory. [​IMG]
