about $20, more maybe if you have some good/rare games.

Check ebay's finished auctions to get an idea. Probably not much.

Either try craigslist and sell it to some hippie, or save it for a garage sale.

Maybe but I think its unlikely.

Maybe there are a few hardcore "hardware" collectors who might be willing to pay a little bit more, but I think there is still way too much supply for it to drive prices up.

But people who might want one just to play certain games, well they could just play them on thier computers using an emulator.

I highly doubt it, except maybe in about 100 years or so... Atari 2600s are still only about $10 + $0.50/game, at least when we sold ours a couple months ago.

Systems-on-chips and (admittedly illegal) ROMs easily replace the bulky consoles and still fulfill peoples desires to play old games.

It's probably not worth hodling onto it.

Millions were sold, many are still out there. The rarity is not there.

I had some old handheld games from the early 80's that I was going to sell. When I looked online for what they were going for, I just trashed them. Wasn't worth the hassle.

20-30 bucks at the most, I had one along with a N64, SNES, Sega Genisis and a whole bunch of other old systems, sadl they got rained on when Katrina rollled through, I doubt they still work.

I have the very first and last unit of Tengen Tetris ever made. New in box and the shrink wrap has never been broken.

You can have them both for a grand.
