    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.

    I tend to keep my old consoles in my house. No one touches them so it's a good idea to keep them because I know that 20 years from now it will be worth millions of money.

    I don't care who you are so long as you are in the middle of selling all of your old consoles. Old consoles as I ffound out will always fetch a ton of money so the only optionthat we've got is to ra or not, no one likes changes.

    I still have my PS1 and PS2 consoles at my storage. They still work perfectly fine and i play them every time i miss a certain game. Although i just randomly play them, i still think that they are worth collecting specially when i feel that they have sentimental value.

    It is very disturbing for someone to steal your best gaming tool.

    Yeah, if you can find a ready market and nice customers you can really make a lot of cash out of them. Because I am sure there are individuals who admire to own consoles but do not know where to find them.

    Selling on ebay is also a good idea. And you can make some decent money for vintage consoles. Just make sure that it is working. And I am sure you'd find that such type of consoles are going to be really useful.

    Selling items via online platforms is the best.

    My old consoles are either lost or damage already. I used to display or keep it all in my room but this days I like peaceful ambiance in my room. So I decided to clean up. My latest consoles are still okay, those I bought last year but the older once are missing already. Maybe my mom throw it when she clean up.
