I guess it depends on where you plan on selling it. You could shop around amazon and see what comparable ds systems are selling for. Or you could set up a bid on ebay and see what people are willing to pay for it. Or you could just take it into gamestop and hope to get a decent amount of store credit (sometimes they have some good trade in offers to).

With that much stuff to sell, I'd bundle it together and sell it on e-bay.

This isn't really the place for that. Give or take 70 bucks. There's your estimate, now go go go.

Not very much, depending on the games. $50 might be the most you'd get.

Yeah, this. The games might be a determining factor but the niche buying market for the original DS is pretty low. The competition is stiff compared to we you're thinking of going up against those selling DS Lites. Because to be honest the original DS is not the most visually appealing out of the whole DS line of systems.

I think it's by far the most appealing. I bought my third DS phat now.

$50.00, I'd buy one for that price in a second.

Being an outlier doesn't really prove anything.

I think 50$ is maximum for dis peace of ... you know :) In Russia you can buy DS Lite in good condition and R4 or Acekard and with micro sd just for 80-90 bucks! avito.ru/items/moskva_kompyuternye_igry_i_po_nintendo_ds_lite_14002233 In dis case 50$ is max in my opinion.

Sell it for as much as you can get away with, you might as well.

If you sell it to a friend, yeah. I went in to sell my DS at GameStop and they offered me $17 :/ I told the guy he's out of his mind.
