    Going Separate Ways

    So sometime this week or month is the time I'll be parting ways with my dearly beloved PlayStation 3.

    I'm looking forward to selling it for cash or trading it for something useful.

    I'm not very fond with GameStop or EB Games so I was going to go to them and see how much I could get for cash and trade credit.
    It's a 160GB PS3 Slim, or whatever they called it.
    1 Controller
    1 PlayStation Bluetooth Mic
    1 Dead Island: Rip Tide
    1 Battlefield 4

    I'm looking to get some money to put towards a PS4 or some new glass.
    I came here to ask you guys if you know how much I would get or if you have any other places in mind, I don't do craigslist because of the risks and crack heads that will kill over a few $100 and I'm not trying to end some stupid fucks life this year.

    Anyone have anything in mind for a fellow user?

    you actually get more money for your ps3 if you do the xbox one offer.

    only if you have a 500GB Ps3 are they gonna give you 100$ for it, and only if it's the newest model. They will probably give you like 65-75$

    then you trade in your other stuff at gamestop and get a free game for the xb1 (recommend Dead rising 3 or a 40$ XBL card to buy Killer instinct ultra pack.)


    no way to lose here.

    Gamestop is the worst for trade-ins..A couple years ago I went in with a stack of 12 fairly new games at the time and they only offered me about $20 credit for the whole lot

    You could try eBay since its a lot safer than Craigslist. They have Buyer & Seller protection so you don't have to worry about getting screwed over or anything. The only thing you'd have to deal with is the eBay and Paypal fees afterwards if it sells. I buy and sell on eBay all the time and I've never had any serious issues with any of my transactions.

    You can't insult someone who's feeling's don't get hurt.

    I'm really trying to get cash though, but if i don't get offered enough ill take the credit.
    Yeah I've traded in a stack of games and literally they gave me about $0.85 for most of the games. $20 for Madden 25 though.

    PS4 is cheaper and would be my choice.
    I only have the 160gb model, bought it back in 2010 2011 i think, I'm not sure.
    I would go with Xbox One to be honest but all my niggas are on PS4 right now or still stuck with PS3. Ain't gonna ditch em, haha.
