Can't see a PS1 ever fetching big money, one of the biggest selling consoles of all time. There will be no shortage of them in this life time. The only thing I can see being desirable in a sealed pack is maybe the laser assembly but there's batteries and caps on the boards that have already to begun to perish in its 20 odd year life span. If left to rot in a sealed box it'll go beyond repair.
The mini I can actually see being more collectable in years to come due to the relatively short manufacturing run and then low sales numbers.
