    PS3 BUY FROM CEX OR SHALL I JUST WAIT?

    Hi, ive been looking at avforums and seeing people selling ps3 40gigs for around £220, seen one with 8 games for £300 and a 60gig for around £250 that was a us version!

    Now i have £202 in cex, but probably have another £20-30 if i trade a few things, what should i do get it from cex or sell the vouchers and get from the forums?

    Has anyone bought anything expensive from cex if so what they like/

    What part on forums do they sell their ps3's? I'm looking at buying a ps3 but can't find any on there. If you can't post it here then PM me please.

    mate go to forums, then classifieds and then they are categorised in different categories, ie gaming, non av stuff, tvs etc heres an example of a ps3 which was sold
    avforums.com/for…242

    Thanks for that, had a quick look before i go into town and probrably buy one.

    I bought my slimline ps2 from Cex last summer, really good service. Let me have a look at all of the consoles they had to see which was in the best condition. Only problem was a faulty memory card but they exchanged it without any hassle. You'll get a 12 month warranty from them so you should be fine buying your ps3 there.

    That's probably the only bonus, I'd rather buy from Cex then a forum.

    thats all fine, i have sold lots of stuff to cex and there ok, whats their warranty like?
    most people on forums have a reciept so thats why i dont mind getting it from a forum
    i have £202 in vouchers, but might trade some games i got from cex back so i can get another £78 and may get a ps3!

    Well everything is used... But Cex do a check-up on every item they buy off people. Just chose whichever PS3 looks best condition to you...

    If your not bothered aboiut the scractchedness get a discounted console?

    warrenties are good. If it breaks and you don't want a new one, eg: wii, if you pay £150 and at christmas it's £230 and it breaks, they give you a vocher for £230

    only bought games from there myself

    Don't like the shop to be honest :whistling: LOL

    everything in cex is damaged and overpriced was in there today and i just walked round laughing all the dv and games cases were in tatters with prices on them they same as online prices or more!

    lots of tattered family guy series there £14-16 each! they are only £9.99 brand new online!

    they still have ps3's and wii's over RRP for god sake

    personally i hate them but id rather just find a decent person to deal with avforums is very highly regarded i wouldnt worry about hardly anyone on there.

    Quite right there I went today as well i really don't like that shop

    i wouldnt buy any cpu's or ram from cex. i took some in a while ago that didnt work and they never even checked it, just had a look at it and said it looks like it works!

    They hardly give you anything for games trade ins or cash you would be alot better off going to game/gamestation and they sell very bad condition games for a thr rrp!!!! which means that sometimes your getting a secondhand game for more expensive than you could of got it from the interenet!!!!!

    Have I made myself clear???
