Why would you want to when its got less features?
Well personally my 60 Gb launch console has broken now for a second time (yellow light overheating issue) and after it's fixed I will be buying the new PS3 slim because it runs cooler, which to me says less chance of YLOD. So you see it is not a desire for having the latest PS3 but one of hoping to save money on refurbishing my old one if it goes again! I would imagine many others have similar reasoning for trading in. Anyone else may just like to have the latest version of stuff.

Commander that is probably the best reason to get a refurb from sony then trade it in pay the new cheaper diffrence and get a new slim console with less chance of YLOD but i would still take the 2 years added warranty

traded my 60gb in today for £199 so the slim will cost me £51 and I already had £100 credit so won't cost me any cash at all

Ah right. D.amn, nearest CEX to me is 30 miles away. I'm not going to be able to get them to match the price at that distance am I?

I was going to do this until the third-party company who were repairing it told me that they cannot fix it due to the Cell being ruined would you believe! So swapping with Sony for a refurb then part exchanging had crossed my mind but there is little to gain tbh, it just seems easier to buy the new one. Anyhoo thanks for idea mate. I could always put my ruined one on eBay some people buy faulty machines! :D

It's cheaper than getting a refurbishment off Sony though. ;)
A tempting offer IMO, although putting my 60GB on EBay would be worth a lot more and I'd probably be able to purchase the Slim model without paying anything extra.

And the fact that a 60 is worth more than an 80 in real terms, but they don't see it as such lol

I quite fancy this deal. I paid £350 for my 40gb and £140 isn't to bad for the bravia sync and a slimmer model. I just don't know if I like the non glossy black look.

 

I have got linux installed on mine however I haven't booted in to it for over 5 months now.

 

mmmm, decisions decisions.

OMG that is the bigest RIP off ever. Anyone who thinks this is a bargain has got to be missing a screw in there head or something. You can easly sell your old PS3 on ebay for like £200.

Yeah my spare 60gig 360 is going to get me £120 off a slim, and that's without me adding all those 360 trade in games with it, although I'm seriously considering adding my 60gig PS3 to that, meaning i come away with a nice new slim PS3 and a handful of PS3 games fora grand total of 0 cash....:BigGrin:

 

I am trying ebay first to see if i can get £200 for the 60gig, i was going to get a 80gig and keep my 60gig but the slim will be easy to pick up and take to the bedroom.

 

We shall see.
