They're probably lying, you're probably screwed, paypal will probably rule in their favour.

Probably.
#2
AND YOU WILL GET A DIFFERENT PS3 BACK IN RETURN, DID YOU TAKE DOWN YOUR SERIAL NUMBER BERFORE SENDING?
#3
Did you take note of all serial numbers/make security marks in case of the highly probable chance that they may return a different console?

Why sell on ebay in the first place when you would of been better off selling it locally for more :|
#5
I always take down the serial number, or even better the MAC address which can not be altered. Unscrupulous people may even just change the covers etc....

yes i took every detail i could down so if he sends it back then i will simply refuse it.

btw this guy also offered to pick it up as he lives just round the corner.

If he lives just round the corner why didn't you ask for cash on collection?
That way he can't fraud you through paypal and it obviously wont get damaged in the post

So if you had advertised it locally he might of bought it anyway, with no comeback X)

Refusing it will do you no good if they have any sense and send it back via a online trackable method, it will show on line that the item was refused and that would be good enough for PayPal to issue a refund. Then you would down the money and the console.

Get it back check it over and refund them only when you receive it back. If they open a claim, PayPal will almost definitely side with them.

Your not going to know if its a scam until you get it back, so there is no point accusing them of anything until then, they could be genuine if they are saying the only thing wrong with it is that are having trouble playing PS2 games on a PS3. I would of thought that a scammer would claimed something allot more terminally wrong with it than that.

like shanecr said there are certain games that do have problems when being played on a ps3 Link to the list of games compatible and also which games have problems while being played.

hope it helps!

Tell him once you will comment further once you have received it back and have verified security markings and serial number are as sent..........if he's taking the mick and is planning on swapping, he might decide that it suddenly works prefectly!

not all buyers are out to make a hard time for sellers on ebay, there is a valid problem with many games on the ps2 that arent fully compatible with the ps3, if the op asks them what game/s they can check them off on the list of fully compatible or games that throw up problems when played in a ps3.
