    How much would I get if I sold the following items at Gamestop:

    1 rather beat up hot rod red DS Phat
    Nintendogs chihuahua and friends
    MarioKart DS
    Kirby Super Star Ultra
    Zelda Phantom Hour Glass

    I want to get a DSi and either a DSTTi or AK2i, but I am only expecting $30 for my B-Day, and my mom doesn't want me spending any other money on "useless junk".

    I already have a regular DSTT, so I can back up the games I want to keep, but the DSTT doesn't work with the DSi, of course, and my DS seems to be on it's last legs.

    Would it make a difference if I sold these things at a pawn shop instead? I really don't like selling things at GameStop; I feel like I'm being ripped off (probably because I am [​IMG] )

    --see my other post about DS,DSi, or DS Lite, and VOTE please!!

    Probably not much, since people nowadays wants flashcarts along with DSL/DSI

    1 rather beat up hot rod red DS Phat $5
    Nintendogs chihuahua and friends $0.50
    MarioKart DS $0.50
    Kirby Super Star Ultra $0.50
    Zelda Phantom Hour Glass $0.50


    No, I can't say for sure, but it wouldn't surprise me.
    Better off selling the games to friends/family or ebay/craigslist.

    Half a dollar for one game? O_O
    Are you insane?
    You can't even buy a board game for that.
    I would at least expect 15$ for one.
    Not a penny less.
    And 5$ for the DS?!
    Hell you know NOTHING about prizes.
    It would at least be 50$ for it, MINIMUM!!!

    Don't listen o this guy Chrisma01, he just want to get your stuff almost for free.
    I want to sell my stuff too but if that calculation was true i would get 10.50$ out of all i have. (11 games and one DS regular)
    I expect at least 200 for all of it.
    And along with about 40-60$ i would have enough to get both DSi and the DSTTi/AK2i.

    I don't really know the prices but I would guess the beat up ds PHAT would reach around 50-60 dollars? The games if you know how to sell right can range from 10-20 dollars.

    EDIT: oh wait gamestop? DONT SELL AT GAMESTOP. They offer ridiculously low offers, probably 5 dollars for the games 0o. And like 30-40 dollars for the phat.

    He's actually not too far off there. Do NOT - I repeat NOT! - trade in to GameStop. Sell them on Ebay where you'll get double the price you would from GameStop.

    Wow, thanks for the responses, guys!

    I was thinking of selling them at the local pawn shop, where they (hopefully) wouldn't know the specific prices. If they can check online and try to rip me off, I can flash some prices from google shopping that I printed out beforehand. THEN I'll hopefully get $50 for the DS, and $15per game. [​IMG]

    what do you guys think?

    I think that pawn shops are in the business of buying low and selling high.
    Print out whatever you want: they'll only offer $5-$10 for each game, and $25 for the DS, if they'll even take it at all.

    Don't ever buy or sell anything at GameStop. Ebay and Craigslist are your friend.
