Old PlayStation game you may have sitting in your drawer could earn you hundreds

Old PlayStation game you may have sitting in your drawer could earn you hundreds

Might be time to check out if your old games are worth a decent chunk of cash

If you’ve got any old PlayStation games stashed away in a cupboard or up in the loft, it might be the time to dig them out because some of them are being sold for a decent chunk of cash.

For owners of the now-vintage console, may remember the adorable dragon Spyro who kept gamers entertained all the way back in 1998, with a second and third game released in 1999 and 2000.

Spyro was first launched as a PlayStation exclusive and aside from the original trilogy - which consisted of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon - the game went on to spawn a bunch of sequels and reboots, which were available on numerous platforms including PC, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.

Twenty-years after it was first released, Activision and Toys for Bob announced that a remastered version of the first three games was in the works, which was released in 2018.

Speaking at the time, Toys for Bob Studio Head Paul Yan said: "Everyone here at Toys for Bob is so proud to be reigniting the original Spyro trilogy after all these years.

Remember this guy?

"We're deeply committed to getting these games right, so we've decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018.

"I really hoped that you would be rescuing dragons and scorching Rhynocs sooner, but the Trilogy needs more love and care. In November when you're exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you'll agree the extra time was worth the wait."

The hugely popular games sold in their millions - and, it turns out, you can still get a pretty penny for them today, if you happen to have any lying around.

A sealed, as new, 2002 Spyro: Collector's Edition is currently being flogged on eBay for $499.99 (£394), while another person has the same set on sale for a whopping $999.99 (£788) - not too shabby, eh?

The games are now selling for a decent sum online.

Meanwhile, 2008’s Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, which was a little bit darker than the previous family-friendly games, is also a pretty good earner.

A new, sealed copy of the game could go for over £100 on eBay, with one currently listed for £146, while a Russian version of the game is on offer for £105.

Right, I’m off to ransack my cupboards to see if I’ve got any Spyro-shaped treasure waiting to be sold.
