How much could I get?

Postby Karoz » Wed Feb 28, 2007 1:52 am

Recently, my Xbox made a loud popping noise, and smoke began to come out of the top of the console.

So, I contacted Microsoft, and they offered to fix it for just $39.99, since this wasn't a case of ordinary wear and tear. However, I don't feel like spending the money, or waiting for it to get fixed, so I am thinking of just selling the broken Xbox, a few of my games, the DVD accessory, and my two controllers.

My question to all of you is this, how much do you think it would fetch on eBay? I'll list what all I will be including in the auction below. I want to know if it would be worth selling.

Hardware Included:
-Xbox Console (Broken, but obviously repairable).
-Two standard controllers (Black)
-DVD chip with remote
-Original AV cord
-Replacement Power Cord (sent after original was recalled)

Games Included:
-NASCAR 06: Total Team Control
-Madden NFL 06 (Original Book, No Case)
-NCAA March Madness 06
-Fight Night: Round 2
-Driver 3
-Halo
-The Sims: Bustin' Out
-Fable
-Nascar Thunder 2004
-Madden NFL 2005
-Tony Hawk's Underground
-Maximum Chase

So, any ideas on how much I could get for it on eBay?

Man, send some of those games my way.

But honestly, Id say just get it repaired. You'd get a lot less than you expect in an ebay auction for that. Id say you'd get somewhere around 500 (possibly 600) for the whole package. In fact even if you're going to sell it it would probably be worthwhile to get it fixed first, since I cant see that many people wanting to bid on a broken xbox360 in the first place.

I'd be very surprised if you got anything more than 200 bucks for all of it. But yeah if you want to sell it I would get it fixed first. That 40 dollars you would pay to get it fixed probably raises the value considerably.

I'm fairly sure that he means regular xbox not 360 eman.

If its just a regular Xbx, then yea, you'll be lucky to get 200.

Yeah. I tried selling like 30 of my Xbox games that don't work on my 360, I could barely get $8 a game. It was kind of depressing since I spent $50 a game x 30 games = $1500 :-t
A win next week and all is forgotten.
