Project Retro – #002 (SOLD) Xbox 360 Elite 120GB with 26 Games for $100

IMG_1838

Project Retro #002 is finally wrapped up. I had some difficulty moving the Xbox 360, I had no idea the system has declined in popularity THAT much. Also games were hard to sell as well, even with bundled prices of $2 to $3 dollars a piece, I didn’t get any enthusiastic responses. Some interesting things happened with #002 behind the scenes. First, the Elite 120GB System was traded to someone on GTZ. I added another wired controller and a game for a few PS1 RPGs(Legend of Legaia, Threads of Fate and Saga Frontier) I had been looking for personally. Project Gotham Racing 3 and Command & Conquer 3 were also sold on GTZ. While the games went with a different system(Slim 250 GB) I owned and sold locally. With all the mixing and matching up, this bundle is hard to quantify how much we had made back from the trade/sale. But if you just swapped the Elite with the Slim, and counted the money I got from selling the Slim 250GB bundle as money we got back for #002(whew, I hope that made sense), we should be back in business.

So here are the results:

Xbox Elite 120GB with 11 games – $86 (craigslist)
Command & Conquer 3, Project Gotham Racing 3 – $5 (GameTZ)
Halo 4 – $5 (GameTZ)

Total: $96

Games Kept:

  1. X360 – Red Dead Redepmtion
  2. X360 – Splatterhouse
  3. X360 – Diablo III
  4. X360 – Dragon Age II
  5. X360 – Farcry 3
  6. Xbox – Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Island Thunder (This is actually Rainbow Six 3 in Ghost Recon case)
  7. Xbox – Pariah
  8. Xbox – Dragon Ball Z: Sagas
  9. Xbox – Halo 2
  10. Xbox – Medal of Honor: Frontline
  11. Xbox – Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 2

Summary:

I don’t think I would be down for doing another Xbox 360 lot. The values of the system as well as the games library have dropped significantly. This happens with every generation though. Once the new gen have completely taken over, the last gen systems and games take a huge dive. It’s uncertain if a system will ever recover in value, just take a look at PS2, Xbox and GameCube. The values of those systems have stayed consistently below $50. I am going to shoot for a NES/SNES/N64 package for the next one. Nintendo’s legacy systems usually fetch more and are much easier to sell than others. While #002 was not all that fun and exciting, it did leave the Project Retro library with some bulk games to trade. Stay tuned for #003!

Bankroll:    $109
