Video game consoles are one of the most popular items to sell to a pawn shop. The amount of money that a pawn shop will pay for your console will vary depending on the type, age, and condition of the console as well as its accessories. The pawn shop may also look at whether or not the console is currently popular.
Generally, a pawn shop will give you more for a newer, higher-end PS4 than a used one. This is because the older, less-expensive models tend to have more problems and will be harder for a pawn shop to sell. The pawn shop will also factor in the storage capacity of the console. The more space the console has, the more it will be worth.
When selling a PS4 to a pawn shop, make sure you bring all of its accessories with it. This includes the power cord, HDMI cable, USB cable, warranty and manual, and at least one controller. The box that the console comes in is also a big plus and can add a lot to its value.
The final thing to consider is how much the pawn shop will offer for your console. Pawn shops typically offer between 30-70% of the retail price for a console. If you are not happy with the pawn shop's offer, it is always a good idea to negotiate. Remember, it is a pawn shop's job to sell the items that people bring to them. If they cannot, then they will not be able to make money and will have to close down.
