What affects the value of your video game consoles?
As-stated, gaming console values are affected by several factors including model, storage capacity, included accessories (you can often get more if you include controllers, AC adapters, A/V cables, sensors for Kinect and Wii, and other accessories), color, special editions and bundles, packaging (some buyers will pay more if you included original packaging, and condition.

Condition has a major influence on value, as most buyers prefer working consoles with minimal cosmetic damage (though some buyers, particularly those that refurbish gaming systems, will buy damaged and non-working consoles).
What about special editions, bundles, games, and accessories?
The prices mentioned here are for standalone consoles and those that come with a standard controller and power supply. If you have gaming accessories like Xbox Kinect, extra controllers, headsets, zapper guns, and Guitar Hero equipment, the value of your gaming system can increase significantly.
For example, the Kinect can add $20 to $30 of value to your Xbox system, as can a PlayStation Guitar Hero controller.
Special editions and bundles can also be worth much more than standard consoles, especially if you still have the original box. A PlayStation 4 Pro Star Wars special edition can go for as much as $370, for example, while a special edition red Spider-Man PS4 pro can be worth more than $400. An Xbox Halo special edition can go for $200 or more, and an Xbox One S Minecraft bundle can be worth $250.
Games will likewise increase the value of your gaming system. The increase in value will depend on how many games you have and which titles they are. It’s possible you’ll make more selling your games individually; at the same time, including games with your consoles can make it more attractive to potential buyers.
