    My kids want to sell some of their PS2 games. Mostly sports and adventure stuff(lego batman, xmen, ben 10, etc.) and Need for Speed and such. Any idea of a ball park $ figure? There are 34 total. Should we try to sell them all at once or just 10 or so at a time?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't think the bulkness really matters. Game Stop has a price per game, inevitably I would imagine those prices depreciate; but it's not like eBay where bulk vs. individual matters so much.

    For PS2 games don't expect more than a few $ per game. Most likely instore credit as well.

    If Gamestop in the US is anything like in the UK, you will literally get about $1 per game. Perhaps even less in some cases. The only way it's reasonable to sell them to Gamestop is if they're simply gathering dust and you can't be bothered to sell them individually on eBay.

    Agreed. I was offered a dollar per game just about.

    Sell on ebay!

    You can also sell them through the Marketplace here on MacRumors.

    If I were you I wouldn't trade in at Gamestop. They apparently have very bad trade in prices: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/215570/avoiding_the_gamestop_rip_off_dont.html?cat=46

    If Gamestop is anything like GAME here, well skip them and go to eBay.

    Ugh, don't sell anything to Gamestop. They offered me like 75 cents for a game I bought from them for $10. You can get more by selling on eBay or Craigslist.
