How Much Does a Nintendo 64 Cost?

post E-mail post Post  

Nintendo 64, often referred to simply as N64, was originally released in the United States in 1996 and was named after the 64-bit processor it used. It was the last home game console made by Nintendo that used game cartridges. Nintendo discontinued the N64 in 2003, but like many of Nintendo's products, the console continues to be popular, especially amid a retro gaming resurgence.

Typical costs:

  • Nintendo 64 consoles are available used through online auctions sites, retro gaming stores and shops that sell used games, such as GameStop[1] . Nintendo 64 game consoles generally sell for $30-$200, depending on condition and accessories bundled with the console. Consoles on the more-expensive end of the spectrum generally include games and additional accessories, while the less-expensive consoles typically include only the console itself.
  • Nintendo 64 consoles sold on online auction sites typically sell for $30-$90, but are often sold with an "as is" caveat. The prices vary based on the components bundled with the console.
  • Nintendo 64 consoles sold though retro gaming stores are more expensive than online auction sites, but the consoles typically come with some kind of limited-time guarantee. Refurbished Nintendo 64 consoles typically sell at retro gaming stores for $60-$200, depending on the accessories and games bundles with the console. The less-expensive consoles typically include fewer accessories than the more-expensive consoles, which often include a selection of games.
What should be included:
  • Nintendo 64 originally was packaged with the console, a power cord, a TV-hookup cord, one or more controllers and one or more game cartridges. Used game consoles come with varying accessories and components.
Additional costs:
  • Used games for Nintendo 64 typically cost $5-$50, with most games costing $15-$25. Less-popular titles are available for significantly less than popular titles. Mario Kart 64, one of the consoles most-popular games, sells for about $20; Donkey Kong 64 sells for about $25. Some games for the Nintendo 64 are available still new in the box, but can sell for hudreds of dollars as collector's items.
  • Accessories for the Nintendo 64 are prices similarly to used games. For example, a Rumble Pak for the N64, a device that connected to game controllers and created vibrations during the game, costs $16 at DK Oldies[2] . Memory cards for N64 sell for about $10.
Discounts:
  • Used game stores such as GameStop allow customers to trade in unwanted games for store credit on future purchases or cash. Typically, the store credit choice nets a higher return on trade-ins.
