I had 75 PS3 games...I kept my 25 favorite...Sold the other 50...

...got about $750 for them.

I generally keep all the games I buy, but I've been out of work on disability and wanted/needed to start saving up for the Playstation Orbis...

The thought of not having a financial burden when the system is released out-weighed keeping my entire collection.

Can't wait for true next-gen games!

I think you could have gotten more than $15 per game on average.

I sometimes feel as though life is a curse that has been placed on the living. I envy the unborn at times.

Makes me wonder how much I'd end up getting for my PS3 collection.
I'll have to find out the price of my entire collection soon anyways. My wife wants to get insurance in case of an accident. Today the bottom floor of our apartment building flooded because of a busted pipe. 20 families have been moved to hotels until the place can be cleaned.

Would have been tough...most of the games I sold can be bought for about $20 brand new...and all the games I sold were used, all without cases and manuals etc.

Based on my experience during the last two weeks, take the # of games you have and multiply by 15. That should give you a pretty good idea....

That's actually what I figured as well.
Although this just means we'd need insurance to cover $15,000 worth of games.

All on eBay. Newer titles I sold individually. Some titles I sold as a pair. Some of the older titles or ones that weren't going for much,
I put together in a lot of 5 or 6.

My Paypal account grew pretty fast!

$750 for 50 games like that is pretty damn good.
