An unopened SNES is technically a collectors item so it'll fetch a good amount.

I would guess you could find someone willing to pay around $70-$80 at most.

Its higher then I even thought. If its the original SNES then TC is in luck. One I found in particular is going for $699.99 so I'm assuming that you can easily get $500 for it on eBay.

If it was opened I wouldnt pay more than $40 but unopened, you don't see that a lot, so it will fetch a good price.

Anything is only worth what someone will pay. I sell stuff that sells cause the price is right. I figure I can keep it or sell it. If I want money I let it go REASONABLE. One guy posted 5 bucks. Do you want the SNES or a Lincoln?.

I find it odd how people buy gaming consoles and never open them.

It's like they just impulse buy things they don't want.

Is that a newer version than the original, because my old snes has the purple sliders on the left and right with the eject button in the middle of the console.

Maybe it was a gift for the grandma when she was middle age? I know I sometimes keep gifts people give me that I never open. :( I found lots of vintage stuff in my Grandparents basement a while ago.

Yeah, that's the model 2 SNES that was released near the end of its lifespan.

It'll fetch a good price although it won't get as much as an original SNES. I'd say you could probably get $160-$300 for it.

All the people saying you would only get $40-60 have obviously never tried to buy a vintage console. $40-60 is close to the average going price of a standalone SNES. Throw in the box, instructions, any other paper (ads, safety warnings, etc), and any bundled games and you can double that price. If it's sealed you're going to make some good money.

Some of them are collectors buy two consoles. One to play with and one to keep stored away as a show item. Others are people who bought the console and then forgot about it for some reason (maybe they got it as a gift but weren't into video games at all for example). Still more unopened consoles are those found in the backrooms of older video game stores sitting in some long forgotten pile of boxes until an employee happens to find it one day (this is why you sometimes see crates of unopened games being sold and sometimes even crates of unopened game systems).

I imagine a collector might shell out for it.

Yeah, but did the SNES you bought come brand new? And of course the xbox was cheaper, last gen systems are always the cheapest systems on the market because they're obsolete but not old enough to become vintage collector's items.

The fact of the matter is that sealed SNES systems fetch about $150-$250 on ebay. Barebones systems that come with only the system, controller, AV cable, and power cable only get about $30-40.
