    First off Mods i looked around and wasnt sure where to put this so if its not allowed or in the wrong place please delete.

    THIS IS NOT A FOR SALE THREAD

    Right Ok basically i have a xbox that i want to sell but have no idea what i can sell it for or what its worth.

    Here is what i have:

    Xbox Green LTD Edition (Chipped with Smart XX Chip)

    2 X S-pads 1 Black, 1 green LTD Edition

    1 X Arcade Joystick

    1 X Steering Wheel And Pedals

    2 X Lightguns

    2 X Dance Mats

    1 X Headset And Dongle

    1 X Official Microsoft High Def Kit and Component Cable

    1 X Advanced Scart Cable (not sure if official or not)

    Now thats the harware out of the way there some stuff already on the Hard Drive (official Size Hard Drive).

    On The Hard Drive:

    There is 3 diffrent Dash Boards Original Dash (you can use Xbox Live on this xbox with this Dash Board so you DO NOT GET BANNED). Also Evox and Avalaunch dashboard. For anyone who is not aware the Xbox Media Centre enables you to stream virtually anything from you pc films/Divx/MP3/Pictures etc etc
    There is also a shed loads of other stuff on here like Xbox Media Centre (Latest Version) DVD to xbox, DVD Player and other stuff to much to mention really basically its a full media centre and you dont need the xbox remote its all fucntioned from the pad.

    Now the Games:

    Original Games: (all are Live Enabled)

    Pro Evo 4
    Call Of Duty
    Bicycle Casino (texas holdem etc)
    Call Of Duty: Finest Hour
    Crimson Skies
    Starwars Battlefront
    Full Spectrum Warrior
    Mortal Kombat Deception (Still sealed)
    Ghost Recon 2

    Got loads of emulators snes/nes/megadrive/GB advance/Mame etc etc

    Now i have in excess of 400+ other titles but not sure if im allowed to mention them on here due to them being backups.

    Think i covered everything.

    I must stress that this is not a for sale thread so please no bidding etc i just need some help pricing it up.

    Thanks Crossy

    If on ebay, i'd put a reserve of £150 on it, but if you plan on selling here, ask for about £185 or so.

    I'd have thought you'd probably get more by taking it into somewhere like GAME or Gamestation or somewhere like that.

    You could always try taking your list of things in there and asking. Worth a shot at least.

    Kelvin you are almost certainly better off splitting and selling it seperately. Between the forums and ebay you should get more than 185 quid selling that lot seperately.

    I would definately keep the xbox if you dont need the cash. Just stick it in the bedroom for streaming media etc.

    if you do want to sell it , stick it on ebay with a reserve that you wont possibly sell for less, buyers will price it for you. A word of warning though, as you have sooooo many accessories etc with it you probably wont appeal to a specific group of buyers, so it might be worth selling a few items on auction seperatly. You may find you make a lot more money in total this way, as it'll be what someone is searching/prepared to pay for, (as harrisuk pointed out)

    Thanks m8. Its hard to let something go for a measly amount even though the 360 is on its way. Like Andy said (harrisuk) i prob will keep it looking at what i will get for it and sell the accessories.

    Thanks for the replys guys.
