I have one of the old "chunky" PS2 models, and I've been thinking about trading it in to GS and buying a new Slim. I was wondering if anybody knew how much GS would give me for the system and a multi-tap. I'm hoping to get at least $20-$30 for it, but I don't know how much it's worth.

I'm not sure they even take phat's in anymore. All I've ever seen for years in GS has been slims.

Since they are selling them for $39.99 now, I'd be surprised to see more than $10 - $15 for the system.

The phat was getting $20 in November.
The slim was getting $15 in January..

I would expect the phat to get somewhere between $8 and $10, if that.

Might as well keep it, no console deserves to be sold that cheap.

If you really want a slim, its probably best to give away the phat PS2 to a younger cousin or donate it to the Salvation Army/Goodwill.

Unless you are completely broke and desperate for a new system. Then of course, if you are completely broke then maybe you shouldn't have bought a PS2 in the first place and maybe you don't really need a new system. I'm not faulting or blaming the OP for anything at all. He simply asked a question and has nothing to be accused of. I'm not accusing anyone on this thread of being irresponsible. I just don't understand why people buy games and systems at full MSRP and later sell them for pennies on the dollar for trade-ins for the hottest new game. It seems someone who would do such a thing is financially irresponsible.
