There is a huge market for snes games, it depends if the game is rare and a good game of course.

You can make like $60 and up on some snes games on bid from ebay. I have sold a few snes and n64 games, one game i sold was $80.00 i had the original box and booklet in good condition. You can make some pretty good money from selling rare, good retro games. You can buy some for very cheap and resell them for a profit on ebay. Video games are my line of selling as i know a lot about them.

What does everyone else thinks about investing in buying snes games then reselling them on ebay for a big profit, of course you have to do research on what the game is like was it popular, rare ect.


What do you guys think?

90s were my childhood and i grew up playing snes.

Making profit is the name of the game. If you know the market and are confident of making the margin, then it makes perfect sense to get into it.

a lot of very rare snes games goes pass $200 and up some of them even sell or ask for best offer. Some i see were $600 and up but ask for best offer which i see a lot of offers for very rare ones.

i am looking into popular/known brands of new toys, books, videos games. I will start of small first like there is this site i found a company that sells books in huge bulk (used) so i will try that, i found the site from here and there is no need to sign up, you just buy it directly from there site.

It's a great idea! I also am a 90s kid and I really love playing SNES and other console games. I still like those old games compare to the games that we have today. Also, a lot of toy collectors search these kind of stuff. They shell out tons of cash to get a hold on these rare products. You also mentioned that "Video games are my line of selling as i know a lot about them". This factor will surely help you succeed since you will enjoy what you do and you know that you have a broad knowledge on what you are selling. Once your potential buyer saw that you know a lot about what you sell, you will surely gain their trust. This way, there would be a big probability that they'll buy your item.

Just to add: As a customer, I go for rare finds rather than the usual product that you can easily find. It gives me a great feeling everytime I purchase hard to find products. :)

I have a few i will be selling, popular titles like donkey kong country series.

But the downside is that when you do decide to buy snes games like the rare ones, they are expensive to buy and if i buy one will there be enough profit or will i be making any profit at all.

Video games, especially SNES games are my forte as well (hello follow 90's babies!) Where do you guys get your video games...besides yard-sales?
