Saw this in 2 separate Cash Converters stores today in Liverpool. I will post a picture soon. The one in breck road has 1 in the window. Am not sure if they had any more inside. The other one on London road had a few in the window.

Am guessing this is nation wide but am not 100% sure.

Edit: Here is a picture I took (lower down the page). I did take another one with the console in the window but due to reflection the picture never come out very clear and was blurry.

Great price if this is true, means the combined priced I'd get for my Wii and 360 should almost cover it.

So you would flog your wii and 360 to pay for a old PS3 you must be mental.

It's not, it's the 40GB model which is PS1 BC only, only the launch 60GB models could playback most PS2 games has they had a software emulated Emotion Engine and the Graphics Synthesiser chip from the PS2.

I did take a photo of the console in the window as well but the picture never come out very good and was blurry due to the sun light and reflection.

refurb junk...cold

60gb = played PS2
everything else = didn't play PS2

Never seen a PS3 this cheap before. The 360 prices aren't bad either.

It sure as hell isn't new...........

Got a brand new 40Gb PS3 from the ASDA Hyde store last week for £140. They had at least one more at the time, probably sold now.

Good thing about the 40Gb is it used a 65 Nm chip die and improved motherboard, so it uses less power and is less noisy than the other fat models, but has the superior build quality compared to the slims. You do not get a Dualshock controller with these though.

So I got that, offical S-video lead, GTAIV, Bioshock 2, WipeoutHD/Fury (on disc), Gran Turismo Prologue 5.. all new.. for £215..

excellent prices, especially the wii, as the cheapest i have found is 65 quid.

i bought one from cex for 65 the other day

but cex have 12 month warrenty

it is a bargain but you rather buy from a retailer which gives at least 1 year warranty/gurantee

Then you most likely have a 60gb.

Just be sure to dust off the crack before using

Guaranteed to have been stolen from the original owner

I must admit I do avoid cash converters on principle. I believe it's true that a lot of the stuff is dodgy in one way or another, and though they offer a service to people in need of cash in a hurry, it comes at a great cost.

Are you sure this is not the trade-in price?

£99 for a blu-ray player that doubles up as a media centre sounds good to me... but paying a bit more for a brand new one (ie ASDA) sounds even better tbh!

I am 100% positive that this is to buy and not trade in. As I said there was one in the window with the price tag of £99 on. I did get a picture but it is really bad quality and not worth uploading. If I pass by there tomorrow I will be more than happy to take another picture of the actual console with the price tag on.

Then you've got an NTSC 80GB as no PAL 80GB machine can do PS2 BC.

So you've got an imported 80gb then? Not exactly the norm is it?
It's pretty misleading to say you have an 80gb that is backwards compatible, as there were none sold in the UK that were.

cex would be a better bet just because they give a 12 month warranty, unheard of in second hand circles. cash converter is there for people to sell their stolen goods.

just think if the are selling wiis for 55 quid, how much are they offering to buy them for? only addicts or people on the nick would flog a wii for 30 quid. everyone else would ebay it surely for double.

No I wasn't bragging, funny you should see it that way.. it's a great thing that you can get all that goodness for £215!
