Value my PS3 please?

15 Replies 605 Views Created 21-06-2011

Guys I'm going to sell my PS3 before I move out this August...

 

Can I ask you guys for your opinion on how much it would sell, perhaps on eBay?

 

It's the original 60GB model - never once broke down or had the yellow light.

It has the following games on disc:


1) Start the Party

2) Sports Champion

3) SingStar Dance

4) LittleBigPlanet 2

5) Mirror's Edge

6) GTA 4

7) Resistance: FoM

8) Far Cry 2

 

It also comes with 4 controllers (2 official, 2 unofficial), 2 playstation move controllers, PS Eye camera, 2 wireless singstar microphones, a Blu-ray rack with Casino Royale Blu-ray, an official Sony PS3 dvd remote, 2 HDMI cables, optical digital cable.

 

It also comes with its box. I bought it on June 1st 2007 for £425 from Argos.

 

Anyone give me a rough estimate on how much it might sell for, and/or where is the best place to sell it?

lol but mine has lasted over 4 years without a single glitch - I guess mine is one of the lucky ones - never once had a problem with it.

If it were me I would think that would make a YLOD more likely rather than less, this would probably be shared by someone purchasing it second hand and make them nervous about stumping up large amounts of cash. I have always looked after my 60gb PS3's but am on my 4th one now (thanks to two YLODs and a HDD issue with the first one I ever bought)

Thats a low value. I'd say....

£200 for ps3 with resistance & mirrors edge, casino royale & stand, + 2 official controllers + 1 HDMI cable (If i were you i'd keep the other one..)
£30 Singstar and mics
£30 sports champion, play eye + controllers
£15 Little Big Planet 2 (Thats what its coming down to in shops) (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/little-big-planet-2-14-95-john-lewis-store/961415)
£20 Two unofficial controller. Put them together. Makes them seem more appealing.
Ive no idea what start the party is so i'll let you judge that.
£5 Far Cry 2 is probably just worth a fiver as its a poor game (imo)
£10 GTA 4

I'll offer you £30 for the Eye, Move controllers and Dvd Remote.

I think you'll get more than 220 on ebay, Some retailers in ebay are dying for 60GB model PS3. But it's upto your luck and your salesman skills ;)

I wouldn't reinvent the wheel, just copy another ad, here's a good example.

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PS3-60GB-Plus-lots-accessories-/280697080398?pt=UK_VideoGames_VideoGameConsole...

 

take an ad, find all your extra on ebay, then round down to the nearest 50 pounds.
