So I finally have decided to upgrade my original DS to the DS Lite. I really want that crimson red and black one thats coming out. I figured i'll sell my old one for the extra cash, I couldn't find a part time job this summer... tried everywhere but thats another story. Anyways I made a posting on craigs list and people always ask how much... it would make life so much easier if they offered a price. I'm not exactly sure what to say its in amazing condition and everything is still there, The Box, charger, manuals, even the metroid first hunt demo is came with. Here are the pics of the DS so what should I price it at?

Thanks

I even added a game into the posting... but clearly no one likes yoshi touch and go... they all said they wanted the DS alone.

I know this is a stupid question and i'm not even sure if its allowed. But I'm really lost on what to sell it for, I looked at the prices on ebay and their so far apart in range. So any help is greatly appriciated, thanks again. Ok and the pics are big... but I used the messageboard setting on Imageshack... I tried the thumbnails but they kepy saying error with the html code.

Around 90$, Gamestop is selling a used one for 80 so if you sell it for 90 plus a 30$ game, the buyer would think they are ripping you off by 20$, so easy to sell.

if youre doing ebay, do for 90$, but if youre doing a trade in, shop around some local stores cause sometimes they have trade in specials (like you get an extra 30% or something toward your new system) so that way would be faster, but do what you want man

DON'T TRADE IN

gamestop/eb games will give you pocket change for it

you much better off selling it

i would sell it for 60-75

i would say 75 dollars is a good asking price.

i would go with 75 - 80. its lower than a used one at eb games so you ll have a better chance on selling it.

The console itself doesn't go for more than 50-60 on ebay, used. You usually have to sell it for less than what stores sell it for, but of course you would want to sell it for more than those stores offer.

Yeah I got rid of mine on CraigsList also, I got $75 for the DS, and NintenDogs.

How many people here know of Craig's List, I wonder.

Agreed, your ds is in perfect condition. I would say about $75 if your selling to a friend, or about $90 on ebay.
