    WTB: PS3

    Looking to purchase a PS3. I'd rather purchase from an individual than a big box store or chain. I'll be up front and say price is a huge factor though. I'm using for a benchmark the current offer of a 160gb system for $140 out the door.

    Leave a post or send a PM if you're interested in selling your system. Thanks for looking!

    Just keep in mind there is about $12 tax on cowboom. Frys.com has a new Slim (not the stupid new super slim) and God of war collection (5 gow games) for $250. You may have tax if you live in a state w/ a frys. No idea what shipping is.

    I'd suggest against a used PS3 personally. If you are already going to pay 60-75% the cost of a new one.

    I didn't know w/Cowboom there was tax. I'm in Michigan so 6% here. Regarding Fry's, we do not have them here. All of the systems that are $250 and under are store pickup only. Target also has listed on their site the Uncharted/Infamous(Black Friday) bundle for $200 but every store listed having it in stock doesn't have it.

    I'm not crazy buying one used, but I'm really not trying to spend what it costs for brand new either. I'd trust a BG seller more than someone from craigslist.

    I'd probably be willing to sell mine. I bought it about a year ago and have barely used it. Played Dark Souls and wanted it for Blu-Ray, but just haven't used it really at all.

    I'll get the specs for you when I get home, I even forget what size it is.

    Sounds good! Send me a PM when you get a chance with all of the information please. I have a work engagement until later this evening so I won't be able to respond until then. Thank you!

    What's the general consensus regarding 80gb fatboy models vs. the newer slim models? Google searching provides tons of people saying the 80gb specifically is great while others say it's junk like the 60gb. Many say the newer slim models run hot and/or are noisy. Can some owners of both models chime in on this?

    I have the old style which is very quiet. My buddy has the slim style which is loud as shit. Never made it a point to feel if they were running hot so I can't answer on that. I've only had one problem with my PS3 in the 3-4 years I've had it. The HD got corrupted and needed to be replaced. And that was it. Otherwise it's run like a dream since I first purchased it.

    An 80gb popped up on my local CL in my price range so I'm considering it. It's good to hear the positive comments. If I'm understanding correctly, you just get a compatible external HDD to supplement the smaller 80gb?

    Order this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...=Combo.1307658

    $312 Comes with 6 games (2 of the same game need for speed) and a $50 PSN card and a 2nd dualshock. Shows up when you add it to cart.

    Games:Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Burnout Paradise, Grand Theft Auto IV Complete, and Max Payne 3. & Bioshock Infinite once you add it to cart. It is a super slim... but it is brand new, 6 games and a $50 psn gift card. Pretty much the best deal I've seen in years. For some reason Need for speed is listed twice though. Once in cart and once in the bundle. Bundle also comes with a 2nd dualshock controller.

    Yup, replaced it with a 250gb HDD that I picked up from Best Buy.

    He is correct. You'll spend more time downloading updates than anything.

    Just picked up a 160gb slim with Madden 13, Arkham City, Red Dead, and Cabelas 2013 for $150. Gonna sell the games which should put the cost of the system at around $90.
