Its probably worth about $5 more then an Atari 7800.

Actually, since SNES is vintage, you can probably fetch a decent price on ebay or craigslist. Don't take it to GameStop or Vintage Stock or anything like that. Plenty of nostalgic people out there willing to pay to have an old school system again.

nope 15. He just had to have the thing a few years back. Played it for a couple weeks and it has sat here ever since. Now he wants some money for it. I told him he would be lucky to get 10 bucks for it at the local trade shop. But they will turn around and sell it for 50.

I own two. People still like them a lot and I bust mine out every once in awhile.

I own Super Mario All Stars.

Sell it on CL and you should be able to fetch $30.00 easy.

Sell that bitch online. You'll get quite a bit if you include games, accessories etc.. with it.

Even better. You can lure SNES purists to pay a little more.

Gamestop doesn't even take any system older than the xbox 360. I wouldn't trade hardware into them anyway.

I friggin hate ebay. Plus, I don't have the seller history to draw a fair price on it. My seller history is a big fat ZERO and I only have 50 buyer comments. I do have a 100% rating though.

That is fine. As long as feedback shows 100% with your 50 and people see this in your ad, you will be fine. I h8 eBay as well, but sometimes that is the only place to get rid of your random items, for example super nintendo

Super Nintendo with Super Punchout, sounds damn fun! Also the NHL games are too fun.

Wonder what that's worth?

Im wondering if these old systems have much value anymore? With the way Nintendo has made alot of these games downloadable through the Wii store, it would devalue the hardware some right?

I'd keep it... He could get a small amount for it.

I sold a few systems back when I was a kid -- I usually regretted doing it a few years down the road.

Problem with old systems is they do not connect to HDTV's or they look like garbage on them.

They look better on tube tv's

With people being accustomed to Xbox's, ps3's, and beyond HD in pc gaming for many years, old systems just do not hold up anymore.
