Have a bunch of video games that you don't play anymore? Well why don't you sell them? There are several opportunities you have to put them up for sale or exchange them for credit at some stores.
The most popular place to sell items is eBay. You just need to make a seller's account and put your items up for bid. Try to take a picture of your game cover and put it on the description for your video game. You can do this with any game from any system be it Play Station 1 to Play Station 3 or Xbox and even PC games can be sold on eBay. You have people who are bidding on your game and hopefully you will get a darn good price for it.
But don't put all your stock in just one place to sell at. There are other choices for you to try. Yahoo! has their own auction site (though no longer available in the U.S.), or you can make your own website. If you have enough games, this might be a great idea. You can come up with some cool sounding domain name and register it. Begin selling your games that way.
There is also Half (dot com) which is a division of eBay but usually stuff is cheaper there. But remember if your game is kind of beat up on the back you can't expect to get a great price on it. You have to be fair to the person you are selling for, and in the same sense if your game is in pristine condition you could expect a much higher price.
But with auctions it's not always going to get to the price you were hoping to get. Also you have to remember to include your shipping costs in the cost of the item, well it's listed separately, but you don't want to put an amount here that is way too low, and in the same way a cost that is tremendously huge. People will wonder why it's so high and may not bid on your item just because of that.
Looking to sell video games is a great way to clean up your room and get you more money for those newer games that come out every day. Just don't expect to make tons of money because you'll be disappointed in the difference between what you were counting on and what you actually made. Good luck on the sales!
