    X-Box Crystals Value??

    I know nowt about consoles, but my Son wants to sell his X-Box Crystal. He is sure Game or some similar sounding place will give him a great price. I'm not so sure. He has 6 games, but I'm not sure what they are.
    Ebay prices are carp, in fact so is ebay, so that's not going to be an option.

    Any ideas please on it's value and the best place to off load it?:thumbsup:

    imo you'll get more for it on ebay. I took my PS2 Slimline to Game and they only offered me £55 with 2 GTA games. Ended up selling it for £120 on ebay

    I'd reckon private sale unless laddo's gonna get a good deal on PX somewhere...

    I sold mine a short while back and I think i got about £60 with about 14 actual games (not too old either)...

    it was modified too...

    win some you lose some I guess... might have actually sold it on here

    Bloody hell, that's a bit of a shock.
    Oh well, more grief for me to deal with.:-(

    Crystal is SLIGHTLY more valuable than the normal black versions - but it's still an old xbox I'm afraid! When companies clear them out for £50 new, like they had been a few months ago, the price drops rapidly.

    Sorry Steve, maybe either Gamestation or Game have a better trade in price, but that was BOXED, usually with an official controller & I've seen CEX staff turn away a boxed (standard XBOX) because the controller wire had been wound around the controller (really tightly) & the guy there said they couldn't accept it because they offer a guarantee against their 2nd hand items being faulty & this type of 'winding' can weaken the wires inside!!?!?!

    EDIT - Gamestation sell standard used XBOX's (as stated above, the Crystals don't really go for that much more in general) @ £49.99 inc 2 games from their "2 for £20" range so my guess would be that their PX price won't be great.....

    Sold mine on ebay a little while ago £25 with 2 games. Very Upset. Not a crystal though but can not imagine this adding that much extra to it.

    Postage with RM standard parcels costs around £10 for an xbox due to the weight so something to remember if you need to post.


    The crystal xbox has a slightly different pcb(depending on verison) so hard modding is a bit harder than other versions.Find out which dvd drive is in the console as some are a better selling point than others.


    I have a crystal xbox which is in mint condition and came fully boxed(the box is also in mint condition).It came with a crystal controller and a black controller as well as the dvd remote and sensor.It cost me £40 including delivery.

    dont be such a tight bottom , get your bum down to game station and trade it in and get your young chap a new360 elite and loads of games, trade the lot in no posting no scams all quick and easy ..apart from the bit when you have to get your wallet out :giggle: , result one happy son:-D .. one miserable dad..nowt new there then :x

    Have to agree with the prices on here. Trade in, ****** all. Private sale £50ish. I bought a mint crystal all boxed with 2 controllers, original dvd remote and 6 games(and 3 dvds) for £45 and that included the uber rare limited edition SW Battlefront/SW Trilogy boxset which was worth the £45 on its own (my main reason for buying it lol).

    Trade in is usually terrible for consoles. If you got the Crystal one, id just hang onto it for now. They arent producing anymore and its more rare than the older black xbox. When there is less supply of it, the demand could increase. (Economics for ya there lol)
