Why You Should Pawn Your Old Gaming Consoles, Honolulu, Hawaii

Anyone who remembers the days when the Super Nintendo™ and Sega Genesis battled for video game supremacy likely feels a little dated when they see the types of games running on today’s modern consoles. Many older systems now sit in the closet, gathering dust. But there is a better solution. Here’s a look at why you should consider taking your old systems to a pawn shop.

Time for an Upgrade

pawnIt seems like video game consoles are always being upgraded. 2016 saw the release of the PlayStation 4® Pro, while 2017 launched both the Nintendo Switch™ and the Xbox One X. If you want to enjoy the latest gaming systems for yourself, bringing your older system to a pawn shop is an easy way to get some fast cash you can use for a newer system. 

Many locations already have these newer gaming systems in stock, so when you trade in your old one, you can get store credit to put toward your new purchase. Even if you’re no longer interested in video games, that extra cash will surely come in handy for something else.

Reduce Gaming Clutter

If you’re a video game fanatic, there’s a good chance you have several games you no longer play or ones you regret buying in the first place. Pawn shops also accept old video games if they are still in playable condition. Selling unwanted games will reduce clutter around the house and give you money toward your next gaming purchase.


Whether you wish to sell gold or video games, you’ll get a great deal at A Happy Pawn in Honolulu, HI.
