With the PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S nearly in our very excitable hands, you might be thinking about money.

It's natural to start considering how realistic it is to spend a big old chunk of cash on a new console at launch, especially when there are often fewer reasons to do so.

Because of this, you might want to consider trading in something you're not using. Do you remember all the cute retro mini consoles they released that you bought and haven't touched since?

Maybe it's time you said goodbye to your NES Mini and said hello to a bit of extra money towards your next-gen console.

Where can you trade in your NES Mini?

If you're looking to trade-in some technology then your first port of call should always be CEX.

However, lots of gaming bits can also be traded in via GAME. That's not the case here though, the website doesn't seem to want to take any NES Minis, which means you might not be able to get a price in-store either.

At least there's always CEX.
