Retro stuff worth much (SNES\NES\N64)

Found some NES, SNES and N64 stuff in the loft

some boxed others not

examples are
Super Mario 3- snes
Zelda gol cart - nes
Mario kart - snes
Yoshi island - snes

also boxed SNES and megadrive, and a unboxed RGB Modded N64

Moving from a house to a flat, it much be 10 years since its been touched so even though its "nice" to have, I would not miss it.

Not worth much. I'm a bit out of touch with how much RGB mods go for, if they're worth anything more than vanilla N64s these days. That'd be the only thing I can see that's worth owt.

quick search and mario kart seems to hit £30 plus as do a few others, better than now I suppose..

may keep the N64 as its not boxed, and afew of the old games were fun... wonder what they look like at 42"

I think emuation has killed of the price for a lot if this stuff, especially for the N64 where emuation is flawless, with higher resolutions and so forth

Super Mario 3 was on the NES and isn't worth much at all.
The Gold Zelda kind of is Gamestation have them for £30

I wouldn't go by Gamestation prices. Mario Kart will only go for that money if it's super minty MIB. And that's on a good day. And even then.

I seem to remember Yoshi's Island not having that much of a print run because it was released near the end of the Snes's life. Or something.

You could always get it on the Virtual console. That's more of a problem that emulation which I've never had much luck with. I don't have a PC joypad but nothing compares to the original joypad.

I recently sold my mint Dreamcast and Gamecube stuff (all boxed etc) for a tidy sum on ebay. The most crazy item was an official boxed RGB scart Gamecube cable that sold for over £20! I paid £7 for it and you can other non nintendo ones for £2 on ebay!

I'm in the process of selling my N64 and PS2 next. I did originally offer the Gamecube stuff on here but didn't get any interest! People on here are too savy as to how much stuff is worth so I think if you do sell ebay is your best chance.

I initally hesitated on selling all the stuff as I do love it all and have many happy memories playing it all. However when I plugged it all in to test and played a few games I soon realised how rubbish it all looked now (on my Sony 40" LCD). I've got an xbox 360 and loads of top games I've only half played. I can't see why I would ever want to "waste" time playing retro consoles. I did have an idea to get all my old consoles hooked up in my attic room to a TV so I can easily play on them but I thought the wise move was to flog them all buy more xbox 360 games! That said, when it came to boxing it all up to post it I did feel I'd made a mistake and wanted to keep it all!

I had two official RGB GC cables and traded them in for similarly silly money at CEX not that long ago. Don't think they pay much for them now, though.

I've got 20+ of what many would consider to be the top SNES games all boxed with instructions in excellent condition. It took me years to get them as I didn't want to pay the silly money that they usually go for on ebay.

Just off the top of my head i've seen Zelda and Metroid go for upwards of £40 each, and the rest could get around £10-£30. I reckon I might get £400-£500 for the lot if sold individually but I can't bring myself to sell them as they are such great games and playing them on the VC seems empty in comparison. I regretted flogging the gold versions of Zelda 1 and 2 on the NES even though I got £50 each!

I'm amazed people will pay that money for stuff that's not particularly scarce, and grotty PAL versions to boot. Like I said, it's only Yoshi's Island that's got anything like a small cart run of that selection.
