PRICE CHECK: A/V NES Top Loader

Recommended Posts

I understand theses are rare. I'm not talking abbot the modded systems either. What do the toploader with a/v outs go for these days? Any insights?

The original second model is not rare of course. The A/V out versions are a different story however. From what I am to understand you only were able to obtain a USA version of this system with A/V if you called and complained to Nintendo because the system was RF only. They would then have you send the system in for an A/V conversion. At least that was the rumor flying around that I heard years after the system release. I was already into the "new" 16-Bit systems at the time and had a good working original NES (still do!) so I took no notice to what was happening with the gimped second revision.

 

But, if you have one that was A/V converted officially by Nintendo I would say it would probably fetch a pretty penny. Not exactly sure what that penny would be...but if I were to make a guestimate I would say in the $200 to $300 range (depending on condition, what is included and so on).

Last Year Gametech was getting $500+ on every HDMI modded toploader.

 

What is it worth now? Well a toploader w/dogbone still get $125 and being modded I would have to say if it was done well probably at least $200+

 

The new RetroUSB AVS HDMI system that sells for $200 shipped will most def. cause a drop in value over modded systems. The local Game Store has already purchased one and is quite happy with it so far.

Yeah, I don't know the current prices, but the USA A/V is going to be a lot more rare than the Japanese one.

The Japanese one is quite common. Japan wouldn't settle for RF anymore after dealing with the original RF PC Engine I assume :) Apparently Nintendo (and Atari for that matter...and others) thought RF would be good enough for us Americans :)
