Gamestop first started their trade in program with acepting only select video games and video game consoles. Throughout the years this has expanded to a wide variety of electronics. If you check their website you can see that they have quite a few categories that range from smart phones to headphones.
With PSP games being as old as they are, its common to wonder if Gamestop still buys PSP games. At this time, Gamestop is no longer accepting PSP games as an acceptable form of trade-in for cash or credits.
However, there was a time when Gamestop did in fact take PSP games as an eligible form of trade-in. At this time you will have to sell your PSP games on a third party marketplace. There are many different platforms where you can list your games, and each platform will slightly pay a different amount.
Where Is the Best Place to Sell PSP Games
With ecommerce becoming the norm, there are quite a few different platforms that you can sell on. We created a small list of some of the most popular online platforms to sell your items on for the most money:
eBay is the top pick to sell your PSP games. eBay gets hundreds of millions of searches per day which makes this a very healthy marketplace to list your items for sale on. The more users and searches on a platform means that you will be able to sell your item the fastest as well as get the most money out of them.
In order to sell on eBay you will need an account. There is a free account and a premium account. If you are planning on selling on eBay for the long term, you may want to consider a premium paid account as they offer additional perks. If you will just be using eBay occasionally to sell items around your house, then a free account should be more than enough.
Once you have created your account you will have to take pictures, write a short description, set the price + shipping, and list it. The best way to price your PSP games is to search for your game on their platform and filter it by the sold/completed listings. This will give you a general idea of how often the games are selling for and at what price. This is the best way to price any item in general as you will have the most success when selling.
Mercari is another platform that we recommend selling on. It’s very similar to eBay. You will need to create a free account. Once your account is created, you should do a quick search for the item you are trying to sell. Just like eBay, you can filter the listings by sold to see how much the item you are trying to sell is going for.
Similar to eBay, you will need to take a picture of your item, write a description, set the price + shipping, and list your item. You can also do a quick search for your item to see what similar listings sold for and when.
There is even a button you can press that says sell one like this. Clicking this option will prepopulate the categories for your item, as well as fill in some required information. All that’s left to do is take a photo of your item, write a short description, set the price + shipping, and list it.
Offer-Up is one of the best options if you want to sell your items locally. You will need to create a free account to use their platform. Once you have an account you will have to set a perimeter of how visible your item will be. Usually this is set with a radius in miles.
The one downside to using Offer-up to sell local is that you will have a smaller audience as your item will only be shown to a limited number of users at any given time. Offer-Up does offer shipping, but we recommend the other platforms if you are planning on shipping items as Offer-Up’s shipping is not as refined.
Just like the other apps, Offer-Up is also fairly easy to use. Simply take a photo of your item, write a short description, set the price, and list it. Once your listing is live, you will be able to receive messages and offers from potential buyers within the app.
How Much Can I Sell My PSP Games For?
How much you can get for your PSP games really depends on the title. Many PSP titles are not worth much, but if you have titles that are rare and in demand, you will be able to get a good amount for them even if they are used.
Below we provided a few of the most popular PSP titles along with their respective prices. These prices were looked up from the recently sold/completed filter on the eBay search settings:
|Tekken: Dark Resurrection||Pre-Owned: 20$|
|Monster Hunter Freedom 2||Pre-Owned: 15$|
|Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII||Pre-Owned: 30$|
Although Gamestop has one of the most extensive trade-in programs, they are no longer accepting PSP games. The demand for PSP games just aren’t what they used to be, so accepting PSP games as an acceptable form of trade-in wouldn’t be a good business move on Gamestops end. After all, they are a business at the end of the day.
Selling your PSP games on a third party platform like Mercari or eBay is the best option to get the most money for your games. PSP games are still being bought by collectors and PSP enthusiasts which means they are still in demand, especially rarer and more sought after titles.
Whichever platform you choose to sell your PSP games on, be sure to look at the market value from what other sellers are getting for their games. This will ensure that you will be getting the most money for your games.
