Anyone ever try selling old xbox 360 games?

Has anyone else noticed that Nintendo games depreciate VERY slowly, and some even GAIN value, while old 360 games you might as well throw in the garbage?

It's weird to me.

NES games are no longer being manufactured while xbox 360 games are. making the NES games more rare and more valuable.

I think it depends on the actual game. I have plenty 360 games that would still fetch a decent amount here in the UK. I also have plenty of GameCube games that would (Skies of Arcadia, Ikaruga, Tales of, etc). I also have lots of other games that I wouldnt get much for on either system.

I sold my gamecube and my copy of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for 80 bucks because I was in a bind for some cash.

Worst decision ever.

So I just did some research to confirm my theory, and the two games I looked up seem to support my theory....

There's more copies of the Xbox games out there.

I looked up Skyward Sword and Gears of War 3. both exclusives, and IIRC they both came out around the same time.

Gears sold about 5.74 million, Skyward only sold 3.6 million. More copies out there, not as rare, cheaper price.
