    I prefer to keep my consoles. Selling them might make you some ok cash, but I prefer to keep them, even if they're just used as collectors items. Personally, I'd regret selling any of my consoles, because I never know if I would want to go back and play them.

    I try to keep all of my consoles unless the newer ones have backwards compatibility. Even in those cases I have a hard time getting rid of the old ones though. There's just so many games I know I'll want to go back to at some point. So selling the consoles seem like a very bad idea in the long run.

    I store them away, maybe in the future they'll be worth something otherwise they're there for sentimental value. I still have the old PS1 and PS2 laying around in the storage room.

    Well I am the type of person who will hold on to them for a long time, and probably too long, but that is just me so I am used to that. When the time does come, though, I am pretty lucky where I work with a lot of youth and a lot of them do not have any video games and are of lower income families, so I always love to donate to them, and have done so with about three or four of them. Thanks for sharing.

    I do sell most of the old consoles. Sometimes, I prefer giving them for free to my friends and relatives.

    I think some of the old consoles can be good enough for the sales. I have seen people selling them on ebay and amazon. And that's not bad though. If you can sell good working condition console. I guess then it may not be that bad.

    I wish someone would have given me this advice years ago. I've been selling my old consoles right after buying a new one.

    That is also a nice solution especially if you really treasure in them.
