    How much is an original Playstation 3 worth

    I've been offered a 2nd hand Original PS3 to buy with 1 six axis controller. (Just over 1 year old - No games included)

    Just wondering what a fair price would be for this.

    Thanks for any advice.

    less that 170 I would say!

    Mmm, no games... 1 controller. Not a great package.


    A 60gb original model is normally worth more due to the fact it offers backwards compatability for PS2 games, has 4 USB ports and a card reader.

    However, it also normally includes a few games and at least a second controller.

    Depends how important the above is to you really.

    If yr not bothered about PS2 games then i'd advise to pay a bit extra and get a new one with games included and warranty.

    The original 60gb model is fairly sought after however.

    if its a 60gb, its worth more or less the same as the newer 40/80GB models. Since its prone to the YLOD, and Sony will no longer fix under warranty.

    Cheers guys - Its an 80gb one.

    No bundle cos hes ended up getting a new slim one (hes got too much spare cash if you ask me).

    How much should I be offering him?

    i would say around the 150 mark.

    I'd be offering him £120-140, Mates rate!

    Just before xmas I picked my 80 gig one up for £110, 2 controllers and 2 games

    about £150 then but only buy it if you want to play ps2 games on it.

    othwerwise I would get a new 120gb slim (less than half the power consumption and a years warranty). £80 more though but 60gb ones are now breaking down regularly and £130 to fix it.

    FYI:
