Where to Sell Your Old Game Console in Singapore?

Have you set your sights on the PlayStation 5? The latest generation console from Sony has been hotly anticipated for years, and its launch in November sparked a flurry of activity around the world.

In fact, such was the demand for this new console that in America, there were more pre-orders made in 12 hours for the PlayStation 5 as there were in 12 weeks for its predecessor

This record-breaking demand might have meant that the console sold out in its opening weeks, but Sony is ramping up production, ensuring everyone can enjoy this incredible new gaming platform.

Of course, with prices for the PlayStation 5 starting at S$729, it is a costly investment to enjoy the next generation of games.

Selling your existing games console is a great way to help you quickly raise the required cash to purchase the PlayStation 5.

However, finding the right partner to sell your console is essential to ensuring you can get the maximum amount of money.
