    Hey boys,

    As of late I just don't have time to play my DS anymore, it's just a dust collector! So anyways I was looking to sell my NDS and my M3 DS, and was wondering where most of you sold yours?

    I tried looking on Ebay but I just can't seem to find many people selling hacks on there anymore? :/ Did they ban it or so?
    I was opting for the trade forum, but was merging away from it :/

    Oh wells, if anyone had any advice would be nice =]

    How about a local paper?
    Your potential customer there is not the techie that you may find on other sites, so maybe you can get a little more money [​IMG]

    I think the days of wanting a flashed DS are long gone with the arrival of R4 and cheaper passcards

    Try around your school or work place. Also have you still got the box? It kind of reassures people that it works and is in a good condition and you may even get more money.

    eBay has banned things that "could enable Piracy" such as flashcarts. Somehow, dvd readers/writers have not been banned, even though they too can enable piracy.

    Pens? How the hell could they enable piracy? Anyway, i suggest cleaning off your DS so it has no smudges and getting some gloves and handling it on the sides then putting everything back in it's original casing then trying to sell it. You can tell them it was used only once and it brand new.

    You could use a Pen to write down a copy of a book I guess.

    Is it a phat or lite?
    2nd hand lite's still sell for quite alot, but phat is pretty poor

    If u want decent money on ebay,, bundle it with games

    I got a extra 40bucks, for selling my GBA SP with warioware and sonic adventure..
