    So im selling a Xbox, but thats not the point. Im thinking of selling the Xbox(with wires) for about $90. But im thinking of adding an extra controller and 8 games. How much can this be worth?
    1x Xbox
    -x All Wires
    8x Games as follow:
    Halo 2
    007 Nightfire
    Tom Clancys Splinter Cell
    Amped Freestyle Snowboarding
    Project Gotham Racing
    Pac Man World 2
    Spider Man
    Counter Strike.
    And an extra controller.
    How much can this total be?

    Currently, from all the posts, its $138.

    +1 more game to that,
    Grand Theft Auto 3(Exclusive to Xbox, bought from Blockbuster)
    Will that increase the cost, even by just little? I mean every $ counts for me.

    People who buy xboxes just mod them. In addition, Ebgames sells xboxes with sealed controllers, cables, etc, for 50 bucks. You may get 50.

    @DrKupo nobody really buys xboxes any more for anything other than modding (and rightly so: my xbox is the best media player I have ever used) so I would seriously consider softmodding the machine and keeping it (you have splinter cell which is the game, the extra controller can be modded into a memory card of sorts (you make it a USB adapter and then it is a matter of finding a compatible USB stick (which should not be that hard)) and you are there.

    As for $140 you have two things to think about:
    rip of Britain
    the weak US dollar.

    Not moaning about the state of things but the UK is genuinely expensive compared to a great deal of places. This makes everything seem pricier and causes an overvaluing of items in cases such as this.

    The US dollar: I will leave the reasoning for other threads but the US dollar dropped about 6 months ago (it is clawing back but slowly)
    The xbox alone retails for $70 on amazon US for a second hand one and I am inclined to agree.
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00...3362&sr=8-2

    The games whilst mostly good are all fairly common which means no real jacking the price up there. You might get a shade more if they were sold by themselves but it would be about 50 times the effort for perhaps $7
    You might be able to squeeze $110 but you would probably have to pay shipping unless it was reasonably close.

    Actually, it wont be shipped, probably going to be "seen trade" meaning im going to see the guy IRL. And i saw that coming. So your saying i can get at least $110? But i should sell the games seperatly?(meaning i get a total of $110, but i sell the seperatly)
    So lets say im selling the Xbox for $70(since on amazon, its that much..., can i manage to squeeze in an extra $10, making it $80?) and how much will a game cost for each?

    yeah, regular xboxes aren't worth that much. Most people sell them to get rid of them.

    The other day, I saw one in Blockbuster for 40 quids(around $80?).
    Extras:
    1 controller
    1 Mad Catz controller
    5 Games:
    Spider Man
    Ralley Challange
    PES 5
    Halo
    Halo 2

    Well the xbox itself is new, the other things arent.
    You wont get much for an old box nowdays...
