Best places to sell video games for the most money in July ...
The next generation of video game systems is here. Late last year, the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S took the gaming world by storm by delivering massive improvements to graphics capabilities and processing speed. This added computational power has enabled the PS5 and XSX to deliver buttery-smooth high frame rates, native 4K resolution at up to 120 Hz in select titles, and even real-time ray tracing for cinematic special effects. And with ultra-fast SSD storage, loading times are quicker than ever before.
Nintendo also just announced an enhanced version of their popular Nintendo Switch console called the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model), which lands on store shelves on October 8, 2021. Although this isn’t quite the “Nintendo Switch Pro” or “Nintendo Switch 2” with 4K output and Nvidia DLSS upscaling that many had been anticipating, the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) delivers a larger and more vibrant 7″ OLED screen, twice the internal storage (64GB), improved speakers, and a better kickstand design for playing in tabletop mode.
Unfortunately, the PS5, Xbox Series X, and the new Nintendo Switch (OLED) don’t come cheap. But don’t worry; Swappa can help. Selling your old game system is a great way to help fund your upgrade.
Keep reading, as we compare the best places to sell used video games in July 2021.
Where can I get the most money for my video game console?
The first thing you need to do is find out where you’ll make the most money for your game console. After all, you spent a lot of money on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Switch — it’s only fair that you get a decent amount when it comes time to sell!
We recently covered the differences between selling to trade-in programs versus selling directly to another person. Selling your game console directly to another person on Swappa means that you get paid in cash, not some store gift card that you’ll never use. And since selling on Swappa cuts out the greedy middlemen, you’ll always make more money. But how much more are we talking?

If you’re selling your old game console, it’s probably because you’re trying to upgrade to a next-gen PS5 or Xbox Series X.

How much is my game console worth?
Now that we’ve covered the basics, it’s time to look at the raw numbers and find out exactly how much money you can get for your used video game system.Resale value for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Oculus Rift. Data collected on June 11, 2021
In general, Swappa gets you more than twice as much money as trade-in programs and resellers such as Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Decluttr — and on Swappa you’re paid in cash rather than through gift cards you may never use. Swappa even gets you quite a bit more than you’d get on eBay, while sparing you from the hidden fees and scams that typically plague online auction sites.
How much is my PlayStation 4 worth?
Now it’s time to dive a bit deeper into the resale values for the most popular game consoles, and how they’ve changed over the past few months. Let’s start with the original Sony PlayStation 4. Released in late 2013, the standard PS4 is still a very capable game console with a massive library of games and plenty of features and accessories. It should come as no surprise that it still fetches a good amount on the used market. So how much can I sell my PS4 for in 2021?
Currently, you can expect to get around $235 for your PS4 500GB on Swappa. This is actually higher than the $226 you could get back in December. Since used PS4 prices are still high, now’s the perfect time to sell!
Even more shocking is how little you’ll get at trade-in sites. The PlayStation 4 trade-in value at GameStop is just $100 — a small fraction of the $235 you can make at Swappa. Swappa is the best place to get the most for your used PlayStation 4. Get started by clicking the button below.
How much is my PlayStation 4 Slim worth?
Released in 2016, the PlayStation 4 Slim is a smaller version of the PlayStation 4. It’s compatible with all the same games and packs all the same features — just in a smaller overall footprint. As a result, it should come as no surprise that you can still get a lot of money for your used PlayStation 4 Slim.
Just like its bigger brother, you can expect to make around $241 for your used PlayStation 4 Slim. This is actually more than the $223 you could get back in December — and far more than the comically low GameStop PlayStation 4 Slim Trade-in value of $100. Get paid more by selling your used game console on Swappa today!
How much is my PlayStation 4 Pro worth?
Released in 2016 alongside the PS4 Slim, the PlayStation 4 Pro is essentially a supercharged version of the PS4 with a significantly faster GPU capable of 4K gaming and smoother gameplay. So how much can you get for your used PS4 Pro on Swappa?
As you can see, the PS4 Pro’s resale value has risen over the last few months. Back in December, you could expect to get about $288 for the PS4 Pro 1TB. Today, you can expect to make around $325 for your used PS4 Pro. Needless to say, this is nearly double the GameStop PlayStation 4 Pro Trade-in value of $160. Get more for your PS4 Pro by selling on Swappa today!
How much is my Xbox One worth?
Next up, we have the Microsoft Xbox One resale value. Released in 2013, the Xbox One was Microsoft’s entry into the eighth generation of home video game consoles. Just like the PS4, the Xbox One is still a powerful game console with an impressive games library and peripherals. So how much can I sell my Xbox One? Let’s take a closer look at the Xbox One resale value at the best place to sell Xbox One:
Due to more people getting into online gaming recently, the Xbox One’s resale value has skyrocketed. Back in December, the Xbox One 500GB could fetch around $151 on Swappa. Today, you can get $176 for it, more than twice as much as the GameStop Xbox One Trade-in value of $80. Sell on Swappa to get the most for your used Xbox One!
How much is my Xbox One S worth?
Released in 2016, the Xbox One S is the smaller and more streamlined version of the Xbox One. It supports all the same games and accessories, making it a great option for those looking to get into the Xbox ecosystem.
Back in December, you could expect to get about $199 for a used Xbox One S 500GB on Swappa. Today, a used Xbox One S is worth around $190. This means that by selling your Xbox One S on Swappa, you’ll make nearly twice as much money as the Xbox One S trade-in value at GameStop or BestBuy. Sell on Swappa today to get the most for your used Xbox One S!
How much is my Xbox One X worth?
The Xbox One X was released in 2017 as a mid-cycle refresh to the original Xbox One. The Xbox One X is significantly faster and more powerful than the original console, and it’s capable of delivering 4K gaming, greater effects and image quality, and more fluid frame rates. So how much can you get for your Xbox One X on Swappa?
As you can see, you can currently expect to get around $285 for your used Xbox One X on Swappa. This is actually more than the $262 you could make back in December, and nearly twice the GameStop Xbox One X trade-in value of $160. Sell on Swappa today to get the most for your Xbox One X!
How much is my Nintendo Switch worth?
The Nintendo Switch was released in 2017, and is currently the most popular eighth-generation game console. Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One, the Switch is a hybrid console that can function equally well as a home console or portable device. So what is the Nintendo Switch resale value on Swappa?
You can expect to get around $321 when you sell Nintendo Switch today. This is about the same as you could make back in December, and a tiny bit less than the $355 you could get in August 2020, during the widespread Switch shortages. But as supply has increased, prices have steadily fallen. Luckily, selling on Swappa makes sure you get the most for your Switch — more than twice the GameStop Nintendo Switch trade-in value of $140. Sell today to get the most for your used Switch — just make sure you back up your Nintendo Switch games first.
How much is my Nintendo Switch Lite worth?
Released in 2019, the Switch Lite is Nintendo’s portable-only follow-up to the popular Switch hybrid console. Compatible with the vast majority of Switch titles, the slimmer and more streamlined Switch Lite is a great option for those who want a great game console for the road. So how much is your Switch Lite worth on Swappa?
You can expect to make about $166 for a used Switch Lite. This is a bit less than the $177 you could get back in December, and no doubt influenced by more people getting their hands on the next-gen consoles. Needless to say, selling on Swappa can get you almost twice as much as the $80 Nintendo Switch Lite trade-in value at GameStop. So what are you waiting for? Sell today to make sure you get the most for your used Switch Lite!
When should you sell your video game console?
The Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S came out on November 10, 2020. The Sony PlayStation 5 launched two days later, on November 12, 2020. As more people get their hands on the next-gen systems, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One prices will continue to fall. So sell today to get the most cash for your used game system!

Next on the list is GameStop, one of the most popular retail options for buying and selling video games and consoles, and a mainstay of the early 2000s. But just like Blockbuster and other relics of the past, there are far better options now that will get you more for your used tech.
By now, you’ve probably heard that GameStop isn’t exactly your best bet when it comes to selling used games. Just like with other trade-in programs, we’re dealing with middlemen, which means you get less than what you deserve for your used tech. It’s #GameOver for GameFlop, so make more by selling your gently used games, consoles, and accessories on Swappa Gaming.

Amazon Trade-In Program
The Amazon Trade-In Program is another popular option if you’re looking to sell your game console from the comfort of your couch. It’s a safe and relatively hassle-free way to get rid of your used tech, but there are a few pitfalls that you should be aware of.
For starters, this is a Trade-In Program, which means you’re not selling directly to a buyer. Instead, you sell your game console to Amazon, which in turn sells your used console to a buyer. In other words, there’s a middleman taking a large cut.
Then, there’s how you get paid. On Swappa, you’re paid in cold, hard cash. And on Amazon? Gift card. Luckily you can buy all sorts of stuff on the Amazon Marketplace, but we’d wager that most of us would rather get actual money than a gift card.
Finally, since Amazon’s end goal is to resell your game console to another buyer, they aren’t always looking for every device all the time. Instead, Amazon only accepts certain devices, which may not be what you own. And in October 2020, the only game system they’re currently accepting is the Oculus Quest. So if your particular variant isn’t what they’re after, you simply can’t sell it using the Amazon Trade-In Program.Benefits of selling on AmazonDrawbacks of AmazonAmazon doesn’t take most consolesYou sell to Amazon rather than directly to a buyer, so you get less than half as much as you would on SwappaYou get paid in an Amazon gift card, not cashExtremely cumbersome navigation makes it hard to find your exact device

The Best Buy Trade-In Program is very similar to the Amazon equivalent we looked at above. It’s a safe and easy way to get rid of your used tech — with some caveats. As its name implies, we’re dealing with another trade-in program. Since you don’t get to sell directly to a buyer, we have yet another greedy middleman taking a cut of the profits. As a result, the Best Buy Trade-In program gets you roughly a third as much as you could get by selling on Swappa Gaming.Benefits of selling to Best BuySafe and easyRetail shops available throughout the countryDrawbacks of Best BuyYou sell to Best Buy rather than a buyer, so you get less than a third as much as you would selling on SwappaYou get paid with a Best Buy Gift Card, rather than actual moneyNot all game consoles and variants are accepted at any given time

Next up is Decluttr. Just like the other options mentioned above, Decluttr works by buying your used gadgets and then reselling it to others. In other words, we’re talking about another trade-in program, which means more middlemen. Instead of selling directly to buyers, you’re selling to Decluttr, so you’ll get less than half of what you get selling on Swappa Gaming.Benefits of selling on DecluttrGet paid in cashSafe and easyDrawbacks of DecluttrLike all other trade-in programs, Decluttr pays less than half of what you’d make selling on SwappaNot all game consoles and variants are accepted at any given time
[Jump to: Where can I get the most money?]
Finally, we get to eBay, one of the oldest and most well established online auction sites. Since eBay is a digital auction house rather than a reseller, buyers and sellers are connected directly. This means that you typically earn more on eBay than through trade-in and buyback programs. Sounds good, right?
Unfortunately, it’s not all roses when selling on eBay. From the plethora of scams to the hidden fees, you always have to be extra careful on eBay. On top of that, game consoles typically sell for around 8% more on Swappa, so our recommendation is to avoid the hassle and sell your gently used games, consoles, and accessories on Swappa Gaming.Benefits of selling on eBaySell directly to buyers rather than to a resellerYou can sell anything, even broken devicesDrawbacks of eBay
