Well, don't know how good or not this is depending on how you see it.

But currently CEX will give you a trade value of £21 for your Sixaxis controller.
They Sell their DualShock 3's for £30, So by trading in your Sixaxis you can get a dualshock 3 for £9.

Now I took advantage of this yesterday because I remembered having a neglected Sixaxis stored away in a cupboard as it has had a lot of abuse before this day. I can't remember which game it was but the sixaxis has been flung across the room a few times in frustration. However it still worked but I bought a new one a few months back.

Anyway, if, like me you have an aged Sixaxis that still works (cause cex tests them) you may want to take advantage of this offer.

What's more they let me choose which DS3 I wanted, as you know they are second hand, so I chose the one that was in better condition than the others.
AND YOU GET A 12 MONTH WARRANTY!

Sixaxis page on CEX:

cex.co.uk/pro…buy

Link on OP takes you to DualShock 3 listing.
Both for pricing information.

(Even if you don't want a DS3, £21 trade for your Sixaxis is still quite a good price)

Sounds like a good deal, I have 1 sixaxis that i'll go trade in sometime

By that logic, surely you'll be getting an 'abused' Dualshock in exchange though??

how do you know it wasnt abused? cos they cleaned it up with a rag and some polish? i sold a non working six-axis at a car boot for £12.. just cleaned it up with some cotton buds and a knife for the edges.. looked as good as new.

i haven't voted, but seems ok deal
in another words u exchange ure controller for another 2nd hand controller but get an additional 12 months warranty? not too bad of a deal infairness considering u get a 12 months warranty.

edit:
Think ppl voteing cold because they thought it was a ps3 pad for £9 hahaha

my sixaxis analogue sticks are very loose and stick to the edges. would they take that in?

Unlike the shisters that sells at car boots, CeX test every hardware item before letting you trade them in, and they guarantee all items for 12 months.

And if they have a few in stock, they're usually more than willing to let you pick the one you prefer. Hell, the one in Leeds will let you pair the pad to their demo PS3 so you can give it a test if you ask nicely enough.

The 12 year old you sold it too never suspected a thing! Ha! What an idiot, expecting people to be honest. You showed him! Good on you; and showing off your trick - hope the idiot reads this and starts crying, that'll be an education. I sleep soundly knowing there are good people like you helping the rest of us learn to watch our backs; I'll give you Rep just for this (but, because it's you I'll "forget"; see I've learnt from the master!!)

Why are they doing this? Who would buy a Sixaxis when they can buy a DS3? lol

Anyway good deal, I may consider doing this actually, one of my Sixaxis is a bit messed up.

oh ok ill call up sony now and get my dodgy controller replaced then trade in my other controller.

not a bad deal

Great idea OP , I only have one sixaxis which is only a year old and came with my PS3 , i'd be willing to pay £9 to upgrade to the DS3 particularly as you say theres 12 month warranty and that you can choose from available stock. Thanks , next time into town I will do this .

Just so you know my dual shock is working perfect.
I am liking the feel of rumble in my playstation games again.

As for my Sixaxis, the left thumb stick used to stick in the up position (remember using it on the sneak glitch in Oblivion:-D)
But Cex were non the wiser, they just gave it a quick test, as they were busy, and let me trade it in.

:thumbsup:

That's good if you really want a Dualshock 3 and don't want a sixaxis, but rumble never meant that much for me. I do use a Dualshock 3, because it came with the console, but I also have a sixaxis and when I use that, I don't really think about the lack of rumble.

thanks.

good deal. Have 3 controllers, only one is DS3.

So may go trade in both the non rumble controllers and get a DS3.

what for sale / trade threads?

think you must be thinking of my other account

anyway the whole point of selling at a car boot is so there is no comeback.. so yeah Entrepreneur of the Year maybe and retard of the year for anyone who buys at a carboot.. hang on that explains the people who are bitter in this thread! lol.

£21 trade-in for the sixaxis is good. £30 for a second-hand DS3, hmm, not sure there.

i dont think ppl are being bitter, its just a bit nasty selling faulty goods to someone.

ure original scenario is nothing like the CEX, they actually offer u a warranty for additional 12 months so if its messed up u can take it back.

where as ure sale is purely on dishonestly. People go to carboot to find bargains, whereas u take advantage of the "no return policy".

So you took their £12, knowing they wouldn't knowingly part with it for a non-runner...

You're a thief! Wooooo, go you!

Spoken like a 6th former. The offensive use of 'retard' - what if you sold the item to someone with learning difficulties. You might have tricked someone with an IQ of 80; WELL DONE! Have you ever bought a car that went wrong? Ever been missold a mortgage? Ever known people who have been stolen from and how it feels?

Dishonesty is simply quite a poor show. Have you ever thought through Karma things might happen to you? Some of us can't afford NOT to buy some stuff second hand through Ebay or car boot sales.....and if I'm retarded I would hate to give you an appropriate retort.

Karma will catch up with you.
You're rubbish

"what goes around comes around..."

Alike someone who posted earlier, I have 3 controllers, only 1 of which is a DS3... I think I'll trade in my 2 SIXAXIS ones and get the £42; certainly not paying £30 for a second hand DS3 though, I got my DS3 new for £26 when they first came out! I'll be looking for a similar bargain on eBay or around HUKD

yeah £30 for a 2nd hand (possibly "abused") DS3 is a bit steep, paying £5 more you can get a brand new one. I've got 4 DS3s, all new when bought. One came with the PS3, 2nd one bought from GAME for £25 when they had the WhenBoughtWith offer last year, then latest pair I got from LWD using the voucher for 1st time customer £30 off £60 spend (it really is my 1st time so cash credited back to my account no problems) , so got the pair of DS3s for £40.

but i thought Rumble was last gen.....

j/k - hot deal - i already did this months ago

You'll only get £32 cash.

Met-Cast;5782279

Well yeah now... they've gone down in price since I posted. You'll infact only get £30 now

Traded my sixaxis for £18 and a Blu Ray for £7 yesterday, so the dualshock cost me £5.. good condition, worked fine.. beats the hassle of buying a new dualshock and then having to sell my sixaxis and prob not gettin £18!!

I think this deal is top for people who have a sixaxis and have no need for multiple controllers..
