A TIKTOK post has sent gamers scrambling to their attics looking for an old component with serious value.
Fortunately, there is no disassembly required.
The PS Vita was initially priced at $249.99
The Playstation Vita launched in 2011 and earned mixed reviews during the device’s eight-year run.
At the time, mobile gaming was in its infancy, and there was a market for portable devices more advanced than the GameBoy.
The PS Vita had a five-inch high-resolution screen and loads of games, but the release of the Playstation 4 two years later would quickly overshadow the mini-console.
The PS Vita didn’t have the star-power of the home consoles but it does have a valuable piece of hardware inside it that could snag a nice earning on eBay.

The PS Vita came with a small, removable memory card that stores between four and 64 gigabytes.
A TikToker flagged that the 32-gigabyte memory card is selling at over $60 on eBay.
Users who bought a PS Vita with a 62-gigabyte memory card are listing them for nearly $100.
Make sure the PS Vita is powered down, and remove the memory card by lifting the latch next to the power button.
The PS Vita was originally priced at $249.99.
It was marked down around the time of the release of the Playstation 4.
According to RetroGameBuyer, a PS Vita will go for $145 on average on eBay.
