I’m hoping Fatal Frame goes up in value, I’ve got a sealed copy of the Wii U one that only came out in limited numbers. I think the Wii U will gradually creep up in price, as for all it’s faults it’s a quirky piece of hardware history. For the games, it looks like some of it’s exclusives already have – a butchers on CEX showed me that Game & Wario is almost £40, Wii Sports Club is nearly £50, and Amiibo Festival has gone up to £2.50.

Mas’s post goes to show the strength of the 360’s library. If I were given the money I don’t think I’d have bought any of those.

I could also see Xenoblade X go up if stays exclusive, feel that's going to be thing to keep value or those collectors editions with blue shells or what not.

360 library is big and often cheaper than PS3 for 3rd party games (that a bunch of mine are), I don't see many Xbox collectors compared to PlayStation which might be the reasoning.

Saw HCG post this YT video on collecting, which reminded me of this thread, and we once saw gJones mention how much my PS1 setup in 2020 would be worth in 2021.

Looking back on all of mine

PS3 cost me £100 in 2019, now it is £122.50 from CEX meaning it's gone up £22.50 in four years
PS1 cost me £95 in 2020, now it is £151 from CEX meaning it's gone up £56 in three years
Xbox 360 cost me £165 in 2021, now it is £172.50 from CEX meaning it's gone up £7.50 in two years

Even though game prices have gone up, I think this can still be done for the original £100 budget.

Though, let's have some fun & pretend I bought PS3 for £100
sold PS3 for £122.50
bought PS1 for £95
sold for £151
bought 360 for £165
sold for £172.50

I would now have £186 to spend, which I'm going to buy

A 3DS XL for £120, I've gone for 3DS XL as I like bigger screen over the 2DS & 3DS even if you can get them from £60 and if I was getting a replacement in real life I'd get a New 2DS XL
Super Street Fighter IV £6, great fighter and people are still playing online
Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed £6, good kart racer
Super Mario 3D Land £10, top quality platformer
Pokémon Sun £18, got to have a Pokémon game
Monster Hunter Generations £10, the newest one on 3DS meaning I hope it's still active online
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. £12, I've never played an M&L game
Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars £3, I'm sure some of you have said it's good
FIFA 12 £1, I had a £1 left

I picked the 3DS as it's a system I've recently been picking up games for myself whilst still reasonable, though seen the likes of FE Awakening go from £28 (what I paid) to £40 (what I saw in ToH discord) in a short few months, that I can see games going up for it.

I was looking at getting an older console recently, but this is nearly impossible with a £100 budget. The portable route would be wise, and a DS would be interesting to do this with, and I wonder if in five years' time when there is a lorry load of Switch Lites traded in, if they will drop down to the £50-75 level.

I’m very much looking forward to the day when the shops can’t get rid of their Switch games and are having to sell everything off for 99p. Current day, I think you could build a really decent and diverse PS3, 360 or Wii hardware and software collection for under a hundred quid. Anything older than that and I think you’re struggling though.

Yeah, Switch Lite might be one to go for as the console will go down in price and so will the games for the most part, depending on NXT Nintendo system being BC but still I look at things like MonHan now and that's pretty cheap.

Xbox One I think would be doable as well, especially the VCR looking OG.
