There is nothing like an aging gaming system. We hang on to them like they are part of the family. And to a certain extent they are - those set top boxes have been part of our lives for a long time. They have been part of laughter and love and family fun. But there comes a time when it is simply time to say goodbye. Newer systems come out - with functionality that is more user friendly and games that are more fun. So what do you do with that legacy system that sits on the shelf and simply doesn't provide the fun anymore? It's simple you get rid of it. That doesn't mean that you dig a hole in the yard and burry it six foot under - you provide it with a new home. And where is that home? Usually with people who love vintage gaming consoles and games. Now how do you find these folks? Enter the Internet. There are many forums where lovers of classic games and consoles tend to congregate. And these are the places where you will not only find buyers for those consoles and games - but will also find folk who will them a new home and enjoy playing them as well. Whether it is Pac Man or Asteroids and Centipede there are those who will take great joy in playing these classics.


However there are also those who will also be buying those consoles and games for the sheer investment value. There are some games that are worth an absolute fortune. Take for example Nintendo's Stadium Games - a recent version of the late 1980's game sold for over $20,000. Games and consoles that have languished in attics and in storage boxes may be worth an absolute fortune. But the joy that we get out of them may be worth a lot more. There is a lot to be said about nostalgia when it comes to video games. There are old classics that make our heart sing when it comes the sheer joy that we get from playing them. However, there are people out there who place a monetary value on legacy games and systems that are more than willing to pay large amounts of money to get their hands on items that are decades old. There are hundreds of these folk out there and it may not be a bad idea to have a look at the older sorts of game systems that you have stored away to see just how much money you might have just lying dormant. Playing and enjoyment is all very well - but putting that extra couple of dollars in your pocket to afford that state of the art new system might just make a whole lot of sense. Take a look at what is lying around - there might just be cash in your attic.
