Do pawn shops buy game consoles?

Pawn shops like GEM Pawnbrokers, buy a wide range of items including electronics such as game consoles. So, if you are looking to sell your game console then a pawn shop is a great place to get a good price for it.

Why sell your game console to a pawn shop

Pawn shops are a safe place to sell game consoles to rather than trying to sell them privately as you don’t need to meet up with private individuals to make the exchange or post the game console with the risk of it getting damaged or lost. It also saves a lot of time and hassle handling enquiries and negotiating with people who offer unrealistic prices or waste your time.

At a pawn shop, we make the process simple and can provide you with the cash straight away. All you need to do is bring in the game console and any accessories you want to sell so we can assess its value and make you an offer.

We offer fair and competitive prices for items and are a pawnbroker that you can trust. GEM Pawnbrokers has been operating in the New York City area for over 70 years and has 24 branches across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Westchester and Long Island. With so many conveniently located branches it is easy to visit one of them with your game console to get a valuation.

What game consoles do pawn shops buy?

We are interested in a variety of game consoles including Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, Nintendo Switch consoles and Nintendo Wii consoles. So, if you have a games console that you no longer use, why not sell it and make a bit of cash rather than let it collect dust or be hidden away in a drawer or box unused?

To sell your game console it needs to be in good working condition or it may not be acceptable or worth anything. So, if you haven’t used your games console for a while check that it is working before bringing it to us for a valuation and ensure that you have all cables and accessories.

How are game consoles valued?

Like most electronics, game consoles are valued based on their age, condition, desirability, and market value. You can increase the value by ensuring that you bring all the accessories you have with it as this can add value and make it more desirable.

So, why not dust off your old games console and head to one of our branches to see what it is worth?
