How much would I get for my 60GB PS3 if I traded it in?

61 Replies 4,468 Views Created 24-08-2009

Just wondering as i'd really like to get rid of it and trade it in for a PS3 slim. I hate having this ticking time bomb and worrying everytime it freezes or makes a loud noise :(

 

Anyone know?

I might get Gamestation to price match CEX give exchange price for the PS3 unboxed and sixaxis controller and persuade my situation by saying I will buy Slim from them.

So basically paying £35 to upgrade PS3 to Slim with 60 extra GB and Sixaxis to Dualshock plus warranty, what you think?

Game will sell you a slim for 60GB + £125.

But try price matching.

I think I will.

Slim = £250

60GB are going on eBay for £170ish

 

£250 - £170 = £80

 

£125 > £80

 

 

Do GameStation just do cash then? Or do they do store credit too?

I'll probs stick in a couple of games to boost it towards the £250 mark.

Tis a shame.

 

I have just read that they are looking to set-up another service, that is not open to abuse. Maybe it would be worth sending MB a PM to see if they are any closer to setting up the service?!
