So, my Xbox gold Sub expired last week. I've not bothered to renew it. In fact I'm thinking of actually selling my 360 as I never use it.
When other SNRs sell stuff, how do you like to do this?
I used to sell a lot on eBay but with the insertion fee, 10% final value fee, 10% fee on P&P and the 20p plus 3.5% fee with paypal it is not such an attractive proposition anymore.

I have looked at trading it in at GAME. I'd get £70 store credit or £63 cash. Does this sound a bit too cheap? @HERMAN_JELMET / @Slaine didn't one of you get shot of a 360 recently?

The one that will give you the most money towards your PS4 funds. Have you been putting what money you'd have spent on alcohol a week in a kitty? If you haven't got a little tin with "Zoobs PS4 funds" or some such on it I shall be most disappointed!

I still have mine.
Must have been Slainey then. I can't decide what the lowest price I'm willing to part for it is yet. Sometimes I think it's not worth selling some things. I still have a first gen PSP 'cos I'd get about 20p for it. Must reconsider selling that as well.

Im too generous, I tend to give my stuff away. Last week gave my Sony Surround sound away and my 4 foot aquarium with shit loads of stuff with it. Doesn't answer the queation but it shows you all what a nice chap I am :D

Try Gumtree, or list it on ebay with a low starting bid, someone will possibly ask what your B I N price is , you can then try to do a cash deal with them, Cancelling the free auction and doing away with paypal fees and ebay selling fees.

I sold my ps3 via local Facebook selling pages, they seem to be popping up all over the place now, sold mine very quickly so was quite happy!

Finally managed to sell my Xbox 360. Went through a local Facebook page. I did put it up for £150 but let it go for £120 in the end. Think they got a bargain. Boxed like new, with 2 controllers, a fast charge kit, 14 games, and a HD composite cable.
It was bought as a birthday present for a young boy so I don't think the majority of the games are suitable being FPS but then it's up to them at the end of the day.
