    Misleading title. $299 for a pre-owned PS4 isn't very good at all.

    Me too.

    I got excited until I read it was pre-owned.

    Pre-owned isn't a bad thing at all.

    Some times it may be. All that is relative to the level of care of the previous owner.

    pr-owned is fine for a game. I`ve traded in controllers before because they dont work, maybe the X button or a shoulder button and they take it! Fulltrade! I will NEVER buy used hardware again. games on the other hand, well thats different, as long as there isnt an online activation code thats used up

    For some, sure. For me? Uh uh. I don't want someone else's problems. Though, it goes both ways. It's like buying a used car. Let's say you go for a 1992 Honda Accord. They look the same on the outside, same mileage, etc., but one was taken well care of and the other had the piss driven out of it.

    Great news for sure, just not for me.

    It isn't, but a pre-owned PS4 for just $100 off the original price tag? Sheesh.

    I approve this message, yeah you buy cheap upfront, but then pay an arm and a leg in repairs if it breaks!

    Well, in some EU countries, you can buy a PS4 just paying 20€/month during 20 months, no interests, if you are trying to get one, it's a great oportunity!

    If I didn't have a PS4 already I'd rather wait the few extra months to get the Destiny bundle with the white system than buy someone else's old one.

    A model or two down the track, I agree. I own three second-hand Slims and a 3DS XL that I bought from EB Games and they've all been flawless, which says something about their hardware policy. But I'd be hard pressed to buy a launch model second-hand.

    We need a year or two to identify any major manufacturing faults in launch models that tend to be fixed in subsequent iterations, such as the accursed YLoD. I don't know anyone who still has an original, untouched Fatty in good working order. I still own one, but it's a refurb from Sony.

    i own one that works that i got from walmart (the first ps3 i got). it's not a launch one but it's the one with the Memory card slots.

    the problem is theres too much dust inside it so it overheats when it plays anything but rockband 3 (though its starting to now). im afraid of opening the thing.

    My guess is you're a pretty light user, so it should still be working. But for anyone who uses it a few times a week, even if it's just to watch movies (e.g my father-in-law), they're either toast or on the way out. If yours ever shuts down from overheating, that's a bad sign.

    Opening it is not a problem. I've stripped down a couple of Fats and Slims maybe a dozen or two times and the worst I've done is partially strip the head of a screw. They're just like LEGO...the connectors only fit in one slot.

    $299 is a good deal for a used PS4, used is usually around $350.

    decent deal, but it even says "May be missing parts or accessories." you would be taking a gamble on it if you buy it
