How much is my ps3 worth?

22 Replies 4,762 Views Created 22-05-2010

I have a slim but my old broken ps3 is still lying around.

 

It is a 60GB and it is the blue ray disc drive that is broken and nothing else. It still plays games which are loaded onto the hard drive and everything else still works.

 

I have read that the blu ray disc thing is quite fixable to those who know how and is nowhere near as damaged as say a YLOD ps3 so bearing that in mind if I went to sell it what would be a reasonable price to expect?

iirc you could get about £80-100 on eBay for it.

If that is so then I wish I sold it sooner. I never realised it would be that much.

Re: How much is my ps3 worth?

I had a fat PS3 with a broken bluray. I just gave it away to a mate. But now he is trying to replace the drive, or fix it, or do something with it.

How or where do you go about getting another bluray drive installed in it?

Has anybody successfully completed this transplant, or know somebody who has?

My account on my old one is the same account I use on my new ps3.

 

If I reformat (which I think I have done) won't that erase any account details on there?

Each PS3 has a tag saying what one it is

Your account can be used on 5 PS3s only , in which you can use your content on. Sell the PS3 without doing what i said your only have 3 slots left.

 

One on the slim your using

One on your old PS3 your not using

 

EVEN if you reform the HDD it will still be connected to that PS3.  But your account details will be removed from it :smileyhappy:

 

5 thing is in case your PS3 fails and you need to get your stuff back.

 

Make a profile again with your account go into account man on the xmb, and deactive your account on the old PS3. Then reformat the thing :smileyhappy:

 

Get me ?

Re: How much is my ps3 worth?

I get you now thankyou

 

I just realised my broken ps3 is a 40GB and not a 60GB. I take it that means it is not worth £100 any more.

Na, I'd guesstimate around £50-65 now.

Look on eBay to see what they're going for to get a good idea what to expect.
