Mint in box...next generation...
Okay, we all see what prices are being entertained in the classic market for new in box items. Is anyone holding on to consoles or non-software items as new in box? I am not asking for specifics. Just a general question, will the market of sale repeat itself?

I don't see this being AS big of a deal, simply because the boxes for current gen stuff are much more dependable/sturdy than boxes from 'the old days'. Even the box that the Xbox 360 came in is pretty damn solid. I also think that 'loose' games from these generations will be considerably less valuable in relation to their complete counterparts than in previous generations.
Simply put - the more fragile the game media, the more important (and therefore less rare) the 'completeness' factor.
