Yep, I'm sitting next to a pile of them right now. Wii, 360, Rock Band, PS2. I think the PS2 box has a Dreamcast in it. Can't remember why :lol:

The only box I might have to get rid of is Rock Band, it's almost big enough to need its own room. Kinda handy if I need a big box for something though - for example, Rock Band.

I keep them. If I end up selling something at least I don't have to get a box to carry the stuff in plus it could be worth a bit more.

I agree with what Adam and F said. Although I keep mine dotted around various places than in the loft.

I like to keep the boxes, but after a couple years and a few shift arounds I tend to misplace them. Currently I've got my DS box and I believe my Gamecube box is in the attic.

I usually keep the boxes I get, this irritates my girlfriend though so she has been 'encouraging' me to throw them out. I've still got most of them though.

I keep as many as I can. Anything expensive I keep the box for, but I don't like the thought of not being able to return it should it go wrong, or reduce sell-on value later.

I've still got all my boxes in the loft. Quite glad too as I'm hopefully moving house very soon.

I keep the boxes to my expensive stuff, for when i have to move house, or if something breaks, or if i want to sell something.

I have done so habitually ever since the DS 'Phat' was released, but previously I didn't care much and let them go if they wanted to go. It's getting really OCD now though, I need to stop.

Don't mean to be a smarty-pants or anything, but why don't you fold them up...?

I keep all my boxes. It's getting a bit stupid now though. On top of my wardrobe is piled with boxes. At least 3 drawers have boxes in. My wardrobe is mostly taken up by the Rock Band box and under my bed is now completely crammed with boxes.

Yeah I keep all my boxes, I'm actually not sure why at all, but at least I can keep instructions etc in there.

There is also a box of N64 game boxes in my garage actually. I need to go reminiscence sometime.

I don't have many pre-SNES boxes, just a Master System and GameBoy I think, everything else I have in mint condition, some are in the cupboard under the stairs some on top of wardrobes, a lot of retro stuff that I don't use is boxed up in the attic. I get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I go up there and ju,st want to get everything out and play. :D

I now keep boxes, especially for this-gen. My Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360's boxes are stored away, as well Guitar Hero II (360) and Mario Kart Wii box with wheel in it.

Wished I'd kept PS2 Aqua limited box as I seem can't find it. :(

I think I have kept all my boxes, except my original Gameboy I think. Not entirely sure why, but I assume they will be useful for when the console inevitably gets packed up (first box was N64, so nothing to be packed up yet, actually, probably should pack up that N64).

I've just realised, I even have boxes from HMV/Play under my bed. You know, they send games and stuff in cardboard boxes rather than jiffy bags. I have no idea why I've kept those. :?

I tend to keep the boxes, although my snes boxes have been chucked recently, along with a few N64 boxes. I wish I knew why I keep these things... I think I'm one of these people who keep things "just in case" or "It'll be useful one day".
