PS3's on ebay too low in price to trust?

12 replies 401 views Edited Sep 30, 2013

I have been looking to get a new PS3 after selling my old original slim for upgrading my PC. I just bought GTA 5 and have seen some reviews that make me wonder about the super slims. I like the original slim's and think they look cooler but IDK why this guy is selling them so CHEAP. Any idea's if it's to be trusted? Anybody have anything to say over a new super slim PS3 12GB? I only have up to $200 to spend.

I Bought a 300 dollar turtle beach headset for 99 dollars and it works well. That store seems legit by the feedback i've read.I'd trust it.

Have you had a super slim PS3? Been thinking of getting a super slim because the controller adds costs up if I got the ebay one. If I can get a used slim for $225, why not get a super slim for $200 brand new? Just wondering if you might have one.

I've bought a couple of consoles over the years on eBay and have never had a bad experience.  Check to make sure their feedback looks legit, and then be sure you've got buyer protection.  With those two in place, you should be good to go.

 

Don't know about slim vs. super slim.  I've still got my old 60GB fatty :smileyhappy:

 

Good luck!

I have a SuperSlim, works great. If you can get a new one for that price go for it.

 

The ebay model looks legit and if anything is wrong with it, they do have a return policy. They don't specifically say " guaranteed to work online" in the description, bur again they do have a return policy. Here's one as well:

Don't get a 12GB. You will have to get a bigger HDD to be able to play anything. Just more expense.

 

Your choice I guess.

Thanks everyone for the reply. I know the 12GB has low amounts of storage but I have hard drives sitting everywhere from 250GB on up. I wonder if I should get the original slim next month for $160. Is it worth getting an original slim and a new controller for that price?

The closest pawn shop I have is in the bad part of town and ebay gives refunds if they rip me off. As long as it works, the seal is intact and has never been banned i'm fine with it.

The seller has excellent feedback with a lot of reviews, it looks trustworthy to me.  With the launch of the ps4 coming up, I think it is a good deal not too good to be true.

Alright. Most likely going to get one next month. The prices should drop even more with people selling there PS3's to get PS4's.
