    Ok, figured I'd bring this here. Anyone work at EB Games or Gamestop? I want to trade in my PSP system (fully intact with all instructions, accessories, box and Spider-Man 2 movie), Burnout Legends, Ridge Racer, Twisted Metal and Metal Gear Acid. Thing is I want to know what I'll get for them first. I called 2 Gamestops and an EB Games and noone can/will give me a trade in price over the phone. I don't feel like dragging everything to a mall to find out I'd only get $80 for everything. If anyone could help it would be appreciated greatly.

    I would do craigs list or ebay honestly.
    I think gamestop gave me $30 for my gba sp a few years ago. Not a great deal

    Well if I couldn't trade it in via one of the game stores (I want to trade it in for a DS and New SMB), then I would try to hock it in the Junkion first. Ebay is a no go for me. I hate the hassle of selling on there anymore.

    Maybe give Craigs list a shot. Post it on there, and require that they have to come pick it up.

    I sold my synth and drum machine on there, and it was pretty easy. I had them both sold in about a week.

    If it's still got the 1.5 firmware, you're sitting on a gold mine. I've seen used ones go for over three hundred.

    It's getting very hard to find them.

    It's got 2.0 on there. I wasn't (and still am not) into the whole homebrew thing.

    you can downgrade 2.0 to 1.5, thats old news man, 1.5s atre very comon cuz of that and there are loaders that get some emus to run on up to 2.5

    1.5 doesnt make it worth more anymore. 6 months ago ya, but not now.

    No, I'm serious. Go to Chinatown, and look for video game stores. They'll have the 1.5s for 50-75 bucks more.
