How much for a Japanese XBox 360?

When I lived in Taiwan, I picked up an XBox 360 Pro. We've had some good times, me and that console, but now that I live in the US and have no plans to leave the country, I'm thinking I might sell it and replace it with a US 360 (maybe an Elite) since it's rather annoying to have to be constantly worried about whether or not games are going to be region locked plus I'd like to play some oXBox games (Panzer Dragoon Orta!). I'm wondering how much people think I could get for it. eBay, normally a great source of information for such things, hasn't been of much help.

I'd sell the system + all the Asian region locked games I have which includes: Blue Dragon, Enchanted Arms, Burnout Revenge, Kameo, and Dead Rising.

    My guess is you won't get very much for it. Since there aren't many (any?) Japanese exclusives for the system.

    Let me tell you about Demon's Souls....
    I’ll tell you what happens in Demon’s Souls when you die. You come back as a ghost with your health capped at half. And when you keep on dying, the alignment of the world turns black and the enemies get harder. That’s right, when you fail in this game, it gets harder. Why? Because fuck you is why.

    I would like it just for tetris grand master:Ace. I don't care for any of the other region locked games there though.

    Hm...maybe I should abandon this idea then. If it would only sell for $100-$150, well, the hard drive, wireless controller, and couple of games that I would want to rebuy (Blue Dragon & Dead Rising) would cost about that much to replace so what's the point?

    I wonder if you can list on a Taiwan/Asian-specific eBay or Craiglist equivalent. I've no idea myself, but you're likely better served by finding an auction site or game-trading site (something like gametz.com, which I've used and has somewhat of an international presence).

    depending on your location you might be able to put ads up at local universities/colleges where there are pockets of either Asian students or North American weeaboos who will buy it because of its region.

    I'm going to bump this to let people know I did end up purchasing this and RainbowDispair did right by me. He even threw in some regional simpsons DVD's which was totally worth it.

    Also, Tetris grand master ace? totally worth it.
