There are lots of other bundles available at the same price with different games plus gamestation may have other bundles (they always price match trade in prices).

You could also get £162 trade in for a ps3 80gb from gamestation by getting them to price match cex trade in prices + £1.

cex.co.uk/pro…buy

quidco 1.5% cashback

Fresh deal.

Sounds like a cracking deal. How do you go about getting the trade in? My old PS3 works, but the hdmi connection has failed, will it still qualify?

Nah go to Gamestation and trade your ps3 there, Game don't price match with places like CeX whereas Gamestation do...weird how that works...plus get all your games (if trading any in) price matched to!

I have a 60gb launch ps3. ps2 compatability . They look better and sella t a premium on ebay. No way I would take the backwards step to a slim.

I have an original (Phat) PlayStation 2 console from 2000 still in near-daily use, and I would be sad if that ever decides that it has whirred enough for one lifetime, but when the Slimline PS2 was released (without the provision for an official hard drive upgrade), I was also sceptical of a "backward step" as I thought the newer model didn't look as good as the former one.

After a while though you get over the resistance to change & just accept technological advances for what they are. Does the outside of the box really matter when you are playing games? Is backward-compatibility really a deal-breaker given the cost of a PS2 console now?

For £250 (+ bundled games bumping up the price) for a 250Gb onboard hard drive, and all the same features (except the ability to install another operating system) as the later PS3 "Phat" models you could buy a PS2 console to continue playing your older titles if required.


But yes, I prefer my European Release Day 60Gb PS3 to the new PS3 Slim models too.

With the pending availability of the 250Gb Xbox 360 "Super Elite" bundles ("Forza 3 Motorsport", or "(Call of Duty: ) Modern Warfare 2") & the ever-increasing deadline of 25 December 2009, the incoming deals on Sony & Microsoft consoles should only be good news for consumers for the rest of this year.

Then the next iteration of the Wii console (HDMI; with/without a hard drive capability) will be with us in 2010, and all three manufacturers will be offering bigger & better incentives then as well.

There are worse things in the world than the new PS3!

You will only have a finite window of opportunity to reap the most reward from selling an original 60Gb PS3. Those that are being offered at HotUKDeals are rarely reaching £250; some often selling for around £200.

no 60gb launch ps3 no longer sell for a premium on ebay. they sell for around 220 pounds max.

wouldn't touch a second hand console that is three years old without knowing it's full history - and you ain't going to get that buying second hand.

don't believe me? then i have two to sell for this price because i like to move to a quieter and cooler running slim.

...Selling on an auction site, or here at HotUKDeals?

But yes, I have looked at buying further 60Gb models in the past & the history of a pre-owned machine is always (if not the most) important to me too.

Regardless of my interest, you may not get £220 for the UK model. I don't think I would buy a 60Gb model for that kind of money now. I know mine has never left my front room & has only ever been moved (very, very carefully) once off the shelf it was put on 2.5 years ago. Other owners (not necessarily you) would not be as careful, and a pre-owned model may have also swapped hands many times (or be a refurbished model from Sony as part of an exchange scheme).

The NTSC-J model (with on-board 'emotion chip' hardware to support backward compatibility for Japanese PS2 titles, rather than software emulation) will have a limited audience, and wouldn't be for me in any respect.

If you don't list them though you won't sell them

Theres a 60gb original going for £200 with £14 postage and some time to run. Thats as much as a brand new slim pretty much which says it all really. I will put a watch on it and see what it goes for.

WHy would I buy a retarded version of the console with no Linux, no ps2 compatability, less usb ports that looks worse ?

The answer is I wouldnt. Are you saying the PS3 is not reliable ?

Anyway my point was why trade in for £150 when you could sell for £200 on ebay.

the slim runs quieter, uses less electricity, has a smaller form factor, loads games faster, works in conjunction with the tv remote for many recent tvs through the hdmi cable and has better audio bitstreaming options. so there are a quite a few benefits to the slim which you have ignored.

i rather use my ps2 for ps2 games because i install them all onto a hard drive using hdloader. so i have never used BC on my ps3. maybe you use BC on your ps3 but i don't because i prefer playing my ps2 games off a hard drive installed in my ps2.

i have never use linux on the ps3 although i have partitioned my hard drive and installed it - it wasn't for me. so slow and cumbersome.

i am not saying the ps3 is unreliable but i rather not buy a three year old second hand piece of electronic equipment - especially one that involves an optical drive. optical drives fail and without knowing the history then i rather not take the chance.

i have listed my ps3 but no one was interested for the prices i mentioned. i think i would be able to get 200 pounds on ebay now and when you factor in fees of 10% it doesn't seem worthwhile.

So, you would recommend not buying a three year old pre-owned PS3, but you are expecting others to do so from you?

Also, regardless of what you value something at; it is only worth what people are prepared to pay for it.

If you think something is worth £220, but you cannot find someone to offer more than £200, then perhaps that is the market value & you have over-priced it?

Yes, if you hold out long enough you may find a buyer to stump-up the extra £20, but in the meantime you could have spent the £200 you are being offered or be gaining interest on it in a bank account.

Sounds like if you put the console on eBay at £220, with 10% fees you'll get near to your expectation anyway.

Not sure if those questions were aimed at me, but I'll respond in any respect...

The look of the new PS3 Slim compared with the original 'Phat' model is subjective. I like the original... and think the Slim version doesn't look as good, but I remember thinking that about the PS2 Slimline model. Looking at the 'Phat' original PS2 now, I wonder what I was thinking of at the time!

If you have no intention of installing Linux then that is a moot point. I have the option, but I doubt I'll ever do it. My on-board 60Gb drive is too full to contemplate it anyway. Yes, I have a Western Digital 500Gb drive waiting to drop in to the console, but I have read that others who have upgraded to 320Gb or 500Gb drives are experiencing lag with iPlayer & VidZone.

If you have no PS2 titles (as you never owned a PS2) or have no intention of owning any then, that too, is not an issue. For the record, I have many PS2 consoles, and too many PS2 titles to care about the quantity. I am not indicative of everybody who would be interested in a PS3 Slim model though.

I have on a couple of occasions had more than 2 USB devices plugged in to the 4 ports available to me on my PS3, but 2 USB ports should be sufficient if you have a USB hub or hubs to extend up to the maximum of 127 devices.

No, I am not saying the PS3 is unreliable.

That said, I have noticed (from posts on other forums) that a majority of people reporting Blu-ray drive failures had undertaken one or more of the following conditions:

a) Use of "FIFA 09"
b) Use of "Grand Theft Auto IV"
c) Vertical orientation of the console.


£50 extra from a sale on eBay (or elsewhere) may sound attractive, but if you think your existing console may stop working at any time, or you do not want the hassle of waiting 10 days for an auction to close, or have to wait in for somebody to come & collect it, or enter into discussions with a courier Company that has lost or damaged the console in transit, then you may walk into a high street store & part-exchange for a new model at your convenience.

For the record: I was not disagreeing with you.

i wouldn't buy a second hand console but there are people who are willing to. i am not forcing the sale on anyone. if people are happy to buy a second hand console then it is their choice but personally i wouldn't do it. do you see what i am trying to say? for example, there are people who like to buy cars new and don't like buying secondhand cars, however they are quite willing to sell their secondhand cars if they want to buy a new car. i like to buy my games consoles new but in order to buy a newer model i need to sell my old one.

if i was selling a broken item i would have been desparate to sell it but i am not desparate to sell it - infact i can't even be bothered to sell it. ebay fees are so prohibitively expensive that i am resigned to keeping my ps3 60gb since i am unwilling to sell it for what i think it will sell for (£180 pounds). and you are right about market value. i want more than the market value - but the reason why my perception of value is higher is because i know that my ps3 is well looked after. people buying secondhand will not know how well i look after my ps3 so there is always a discount to what i think it is worth - it 's like you know your ps3 is in AAA condition but a prospective buyer would not know this so he has to price in a discount. as far as he can see all secondhand ps3 are practically identical on the outside - he has no way of knowing what is a dud and what isn't a dud - hence the discount.

That's fine. I would advise you sell on eBay then at the inflated price to take account of the fees involved.

However, like I said above, unless you list here you will not know if you have a buyer (at any price) or not.

If many people are in the same mindset as you (and arguably, me to a certain degree) then they too may now value the 60Gb console higher than, say, last week.

Sometimes timing items for sale when a buyer is going to be looking is paramount.
List today & you may not find anybody interested. List yesterday, or in three weeks, and you may do.

Good luck in any respect.
