With the Nintendo 3DS just a few months away from release, it's a typical common gamer symptom to feel like you have to get rid of your current console or store it away in a drawer somewhere. Another alternative is to line them up with all of your other portable gaming devices on display, much like many of the vintage camera collections we've seen in the past.
There's plenty of ways to organize your ultraportables (especially if you're looking at more than 4-5). We suggest:
- Ordering it by manufacturer, followed by date of purchase. This can create a timeline of all your gaming tech of the past.
- Another sweet organization method is doing it by color, which can turn out pretty rad sometimes given all of the different shapes and designs of more "retro" portables.
- Creating labels is a nice touch if you want to make it feel like a museum of technology.
- Keep certain consoles within reach if you still plan on using it when you have guests over/grab it on the go.
Alternatively, you could simply donate to a locate charity or sell it on eBay. Gamestop and Bestbuy have also had trade-in deals in the past where you can get up to 50% off the newest console if you trade in your old models.
