      My shitty original silver Gameboy advance with the shitty non backlight screen is now worth around $60-70. People pay so much for these things because they use them to do ips screen mods.

      Also if you used to be a pokefag and have a collection of old Gameboy or DS pokemon games, it may be worth hundreds of dollars.

      How much does the original Gameboy go for? Pretty sure I've still got the box it came in as well.

      Having the original box will make it worth even more money

        This was the first truly popular colour nintendo handheld though. It's a historic item really. A paradigm for tech at the time.
        It's definitely going to become an appreciated object for that alone.
        That and people did kinda just throw them away as a kid when the advance came out or when the ds came out. Kids didn't think about the importance to tech history with that console.

      The best advance by a long way. I remember seeing my cousins orig advance and another friends micro advance (is that the name?) and thought "thank god my parents bought one with a big screen, a backlight and a flip so I could store it in my pocket and play it in the school bathroom".
      SP was so good.

      That said, DS Lite was superior still because it could play gc advance and gc games (unlike later DSes) and DS games.

    Still got my blue boy.
    It's about as good as this pic, plus has a pikachu sticker on it that I got circa 2000ish. Just checked on it and it's all still there and still works and apparently can fetch 150AUD according to ebay.
    So it's probably appreciated and I've kept it stored safe in a little case for nearly 19 years because the SP (which I also have still) replaced it's use. The SP has problems for sale worth because the battery in it probably needs replacing and good luck getting a new official working battery for the SP.

    I guess the GC were the last line of disposable battery powered handheld consoles to exist 2bh, which makes them rather valuable if you have the cover and it still works.

    Btw that GC color has had a peanut crumb in it for fucking 20 years now... christ.

      There are quality ones out there sold by modding enthusiasts, even with higher capacity than the stock ones. (In other words someone bought a bunch of chinky batteries that fit it and found a supplier that doesn't make shit ones and doesn't lie about capacity, and is reselling those.) Even sans battery, the newer "brighter screen" AGS-101 model goes for pretty much on ebay.
      Also the original GBA took standard AAs too.

        Yeah I was just thinking that they might have taken those.
        Also apparently the ds never played gb or gbc games and I think that's coming back to me too given I used to lend them to a younger sister (and her saying that the DS was "shit" because it couldn't play my games, kek).

    Video games are a scam and deserve piracy. Notice how it isn’t a problem with books, music and movies. Stuff like bargain bins and little libraries can exist because they have been allowed to proliferate well beyond the threshold of artificial scarcity. You never see any of them cost 100+ unless they were first editions.

      Video games are a cult, not a scam.
      Learn the difference.
      A cult does not necessarily mean that is a scam, though they can be exploited for scams.

      Nintendo were very very good in the late 90s and early 00s in developing the "cult of the nintendo game" because those games were more than just games to me, they were moments I cherished as a child.
      It's dumb shit like that that makes this society something we want to be a part of.

      But nowadays the cult of the product has turned into the scam of the product because of some leeches that get too angry when people like and cherish a mount around a dumb inanimate product. What is the point of living in a society full stop without such dumb trivial moments to cherish and enjoy?
      That being said, the cult of the product terrifies me because of how much we obsess over it and how much it can control us, kek. Fortunately, nintendo still understands to a degree how to avoid mutating that into something properly subversive to people. That's why they focus on family things without going too ridiculous or going too "boring" with it.

      This is something American product makers and now Chinese product makers fail to understand - the art of the consumer product. The art of enjoying a product and enjoying the joy it brings to some of us. The art of eating cake and enjoying it.

      there's plenty of limited print run books. i can't find a copy of Life An Enigma online for less than like 90 bucks, and that's just a random example. art books are also a very common offender; see for yourself how much you'd have to shell out for the retarded Apple picture book.
      books stay in the market because people often unload their box of "oh i read this, and never will again" dead trees at depositories, libraries or thrift stores.
      h*ck, ebay expects you to pay 50 bucks for a nexus one, which is almost completely useless in 2022.

      What OP is trying to say is that GBCs will appreciate from now on. You also see it with n64s and even gamecubes.
      Wiis are still way off though because there are so many.
      And everyone probably still has their DS.
      But gbc? people chucked those away when the advance came out. For some reason I decided not to as a child (though definitely thought about it).

      It's like original pokemon cards. Back then we considered it less a collection and more of a game. So I just chucked them away because I got bored with them.
      My gbc survived merely because it felt more special to me and because it could run on batteries (handy when you had nowhere to charge stuff).
