If you have an old or retro games console sat in your house collecting dust, or have recently upgraded to the latest system or held held device you may want to recycle your unwanted console to get some cash for it.
There are many recycling websites in the UK that now offer great cash or voucher payments for old and even broken gaming consoles and handhelds. The most popular and highest paying recycling sites for gamers are as follows:
Gadgets 4 Everyone
Gadgets 4 Everyone is a brand new recycling site where you can sell many different electronic devices including games consoles. At present they will buy all models of PSP, XBox, PS3, Wii, DS and retro consoles including the Nintendo 64 and Gameboy. They pay cash of up to £125 which is sent via BACS, Paypal or cheque once they have received your item.
O2 Recycle is one of the biggest and most popular gadget recycling sites in the UK. Both O2 and non O2 customers can sell unwanted electronic items in return for cash. As well as SAT NAVs, mobile phones, MP3 players, tablets and digital cameras they will also buy old handheld games consoles. The handheld devices they will currently buy include all Sony PSP and Nintendo DS models.
At O2 Recycle all the profits they make go to their Think Big initiative which aims to help turn around the lives of young people living in the UK. By recycling your goods here not only are you helping the environment but you will also be helping the initiative.
Trade Your Games
Tradeyourgames is a brand new unique site where you can sell used console games, Blu-Rays and console systems for either cash or to trade in and receive credit for them to buy games or Blu-Rays off their site. This is the only site in the UK that works like on the high street where you are given credit to buy video games for your unwanted ones. You can also choose to get payment in cash via cheque rather than credit.
They do not buy loads of different consoles but the list is always changing so worth a look for the latest prices, also a great site to check out if you have games to sell. They do buy accessories such as Singstar mics.
