    Hi,

    I have no idea what this is worth and have looked on ebay.co.uk but the prices vary considerably. I have an original Nintendo Entertainment System Package it has, the NES itself, the lightgun, 2xControllers a PSU and the Super Mario Bros & Duck Hunt cartridge with it and when I say its in mint condition I'm not lying, it really is also the box itself is in mint condition as well no tears, rips, nothing. I have also again all in the original boxes with manuals etc.. Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Bros 2, Excitebike, Popeye, Snake Rattle N Roll, Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, The Goonies 2, Gun Smoke, (Back to the future 2 & 3 just cartridge), (Bubble Bobble just cartridge). How much is this little lot worth in GBP. I shall update with photos tomorrow. I thought maybe someone in the know could inlighten me please.

    Just a few quick pictures below to show:-

    Sorry if some may think I have gone over the top with too many photos but I need someone to judge them and let me know a proper price also I had to use the old TV for Duck Hunt. Hope you enjoy them :)

    If you're looking to sell on eBay then check 'sold' items for trending prices. Better photos are going to land you better bids. The system itself with box is not that rare.

    Are your list of games in box with manuals?

    I will put some pictures up tomorrow to show, I have not got the time really I want now cause I want to place them all out properly on the floor and take good photos to show how mint they all are, so someone can look at them properly and give me a price. Also getting to dark outside for the room now.

    Yes all have boxes and manuals all in immaculate condition apart from back to the future 2 & 3, that is just a complete cartridge. Got Bubble Bobble as well, cartridge so that's 10 games sorry.

    I have looked on ebay.co.uk but prices range dramatically, which is why I'm stuck and don't know tbh?

    Lot left to chance with an auction. You're looking at about $100 - $200 US on your system (₤60 - ₤120) Your games are about $50 or ₤30.

    I'd advertise as CIB or "complete in box." Buyers are going to want to see label condition, both top and front of the game. I would think you could get ₤300 maybe more. I only have experience selling in US, so you may be looking at different market. You'll have to think about fees and shipping and if it makes more sense to sell as a lot or to part it out and sell individually.

    I thought it would be best to sell altogether then separate also can it be sold in another country or just here in the UK? would it even work in another country?

    You could list it for international sale, but would need to state that its a PAL system (they're NTSC in the US).

    I think an auction would be a good way to go with this, I've seen prices for items being auctioned SKYROCKET.

    I was talking mainly about eBay, but that may happen with other sites too.

    Well obviously it's so common that you'd only be able to get away with charging maybe $20 for the whole package, and I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands ;)

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    They look good for just somewhat quick-ish pictures.
    A good picture to have on the listing is a picture of your NES plugged into a TV, running a game.

    ₤100 sold for this one. Your CIB games are much more collectible than the console.

    Be sure that they buyer can see the Nintendo branded sleeves and take pics of the tops of the games as well if/when you list. A Photo of a TV running the system would make a buyer more confident too.

    Here are some sold listings for PAL SMB2 & 3

    Although, isn't the SMB & Duck Hunt cartridge quite a bit more common? You can find tons of those in used game stores here in Canada, all for very low prices.
    I have a feeling it's the same in Europe, or the UK at least.

    It depends on how much the buyers are willing to go for, I'd think somewhere around £70-120. You can always let the auction see how much people are willing to bid and if unhappy cancel it because there's an 'error'.

    The problem with selling that on Ebay is that the cost to post it and make sure it's still in mint condition will still cost a lost. Not to mention Ebay/Paypal taking their cut. If I saw that, AND had the spare money, I'd be happy to pay £100 but at the end of the day, it's a luxury and the people who probably have the money to burn and buy it will have already bought one.
