The first lot I'm selling is this:

1407350559946_IMG_20140806_114133_823_zp

 

1407350634276_IMG_20140806_114146_316_zp

 

* Also, I would like to know how much the console goes with no games, just controller and the 2x memory card.

* Or if I replaced the console with a PS One.

 

- Complete Playstation 1 console with 2x memory card and Dualshock 1 controller. -

- Complete Black Label Chrono Cross. -

- Complete Greatest Hits Final Fantasy Chronicles. -

 

 

Next up is this:

* I do have the hook ups/controllers for this, but the person who is looking to buy from me already has them. So I'm going to hold on to mine for extras. Does the expansion pack change the price all that much?

 

 

Then we have:

1407355313160_IMG_20140806_123859_354_zp

 

- Complete Sega Genesis (2nd Gen) system with two controllers, 1 original 3-button and 1 new aftermarket 6-button controller. -

 

- Aladdin (Complete in Box). -

- The Lion King, Sonic 2, Sonic Spinball, NBA Jam: Tournament Edition, Street Fighter: Championship Edition (label damage), and two throw in sports games: World Series '95 and Prime Time NFL. -

 

 

Lastly is the PS2:

1407354406087_IMG_20140806_124250_772_zp

 

- Playstation 2 slim complete (will have memory card as well) with Dualshock 2. -

 

- Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Fatal Frame, all complete. -

 

 

 

 

If someone could help me price these, it would be a great help, Thanks i advance. :)

Lots of great games there.  To answer your questions about pricing, here are my opinions, based on the prices I've seen locally and on craigslist:

 

I bought a PS1 recently from a used game store for $10, and I think the pawn shops around here sell them for the same price.  That's without a controller or memory card, though, so you could add another $15 or so there.

 

At that same local used game store, I saw a Genesis on clearance for $5 a week ago.  That was a good deal though (still thinking I should've snatched it up), so I'm sure you could get more.  I'd say at least $15, maybe $20 for the console and controllers, but I'm guessing here more than I am on the other consoles, so take this one with a grain of salt.

 

PS2 slim... I've been looking out for an extra one of these myself for a while, and today I found a woman at work who's selling hers for $25 (with cables and a controller, but no memory card), which I'm planning on buying.  From what I've seen, that's a pretty good deal, and typically I would expect around $30 or $35 for that.  Less if it were a fat PS2.  Toss in a memory card, and $40 doesn't sound too unreasonable to me.

 

Not sure enough about any of the games' prices to comment on those.

Thank you for the detailed answer. :) I'll definitely take those prices into consideration when putting them up for sale.

Now, about those games...

Now, about those games...

I sell games and other video game stuff on ebay pretty frequently, and when I sell on there, I just price my listings competitively to what other people have sold there's for (take into account the condition and if the game comes with manual, etc.).

 

I also sometimes sell on craigslist. When I sell on craigslist, I basically go through the same process that I go through on ebay, and then I lower my price by about 20-30% of what I would sell it for on ebay (since the price on ebay includes shipping and fees that are charged to me. People also aren't willing to pay as much on craigslist.)

 

So basically just search those games on ebay, find the average price, then mark it down 20-30%. Or even more if you're looking to sell quickly.
