Help buying a PS3 for my son please

I'm trying to get hold of a ps3 with some memory (not 12gb) and warranty for my son. (he's only young so dont want a PS4 - got various Ps3 bits ready) CEX are a nightmare to contact but offer a warranty. I'm not finding many other places that do - does anyone know of some others? Tried cash generator and cash convertors?

Thanks!

They are better than CeX, in my opinion, but do leave a little to be desired from time-to-time, if not most of the time (depending on who you ask at this site & based on their individual experiences).

I have never had a problem with GAME's customer services team, but it has been a while since I have contacted them (& they have been through administration twice in that time!).

Ah i see what you meant sorry, i thought you meant trying to call them for prices etc. but yeah GAME are very good for customer service so if you can get one for a good price i'd recommend getting one from them

have look on Gumtree they are pretty cheap on there and warranty is only isn't gonna be worth anything if you can't get hold of them.

you could ask on here if anyone is selling there old one, wouldn't have warranty, but if it was cheap enough it might not matter.

Music magpie sell and have 10% off.

CEXs warranty are a con so don't worry bout that

don't honour them or just impossible to get hold of? :-)

If I was buying second hand I'd go with CEX there warranties are now for 2 years I've had no issue getting things sorted granted it doesn't hurt to be friendly with them

​They dont honour them. they just say all goods have been tested prior to purchase.

They just say all goods are tested before sale.
