An article from TIKTOK has sent gamers rushing to their attics in search of an old component with some serious value.
Fortunately, no disassembly is necessary.
The Playstation Vita was launched in 2011 and received mixed reviews during the device’s eight years of operation.
At the time, mobile gaming was in its infancy and there was a market for handheld devices more advanced than the GameBoy.
The PS Vita had a high-resolution five-inch screen and plenty of games, but the release of the Playstation 4 two years later would quickly eclipse the mini-console.
The PS Vita lacked the star power of home consoles, but it packs some valuable hardware that could fetch a good income on eBay.
The PS Vita comes with a small removable memory card that stores between 4 and 64 gigabytes.
A TikToker reported that the 32 gigabyte memory card was selling for over $60 on eBay.
Users who bought a PS Vita with a 62 gigabyte memory card list them for nearly $100.
Make sure the PS Vita is turned off and remove the memory card by lifting the latch next to the power button.
The PS Vita was initially priced at $249.99.
It was demarcated when the Playstation 4 was released.
According to RetroGameBuyer, a PS Vita will average $145 on eBay.
Old tech and gadgets in good condition are always top sellers on eBay.
Factory-sealed game consoles will often fetch several thousand dollars in antiques and collectibles.
