Cleaning out the gaming box and have a few things to get rid of, wondering if they have any resale value, for either the consoles or games.

Not trying to sell here, I need to test everything first, just looking for an idea of value and if they are worth testing

Xbox Original in Black, was solder chip +hdd modded back in 2007 by a shop.
Have original cables and four controllers for it but unsure if they all work (at least one or two of them do) . A couple of physical games but they are mostly on the hdd.

PlayStation 2 in silver
Original controllers and cables
A box of PS1 and PS2 games
Also have buzz controllers and 2 games , a multi tap , sing star microphones
2 x guitar hero games and 2 guitars, and an eyetoy camera

Wii (was originally modded to play games off external hdd, but the external hdd stopped working)
A bunch of joy sticks, original cables etc
Comes with Wii Fit board and the sports game

People definitely buy older consoles but I've got no idea on value. If nothing else I know someone who's probably interested in the PS2 and singstar thou.

If all work, probably around $100 each.


I could be keen in a few weeks if you do want to sell........

In my experience, they're almost guaranteed to start increasing in value immediately after you sell them.

I sold my PS2 collection on TradeMe during lockdowns. I was amazed how much I got for everything. The bigger model PS2 with the hard drive space is popular for modding with an SSD.

If you don't care about making cash out of this and are looking for somewhere to donate to, children's wards in hospitals look for this sort of stuff. They don't care that the stuff is not current gen. And you'll feel like a great human for helping out.
