    Hi my parents said if i give them my 60G ps3 they will buy me a new 80G ps3. With a 3yr warranty for christmas i dont play ps2 games any more. So not bothered about backwards compatibility but im still not sure if i should say yes. What would you guys do.

    What do your parents want a 60gb PS3 for? To make a killing on ebay?

    Why don't they just buy one for themselves?

    Why don't they just buy an 80gb? You technically have the better hardware.

    Hell, it would make more sense for you to ebay yours and both of you buy 80gb models if you don't want the better tech.

    Are your parents trying to launder money via PS3s?

    Dont know they just suggested it thats all. And the 60G is also the older model more likely to breakdown . Allready had 1 die on me

    The 60G is only better cause it has backwards compatibility. And memory slots nd 4 USB thats it isn't it.

    Cause i would be getting a brand new ps3 with 3yr warranty. Warranty has expired on 60G and if it breaks down would have to pay 200 quid to get it sorted. Dont play ps2 games dont need 4 USB

    I would swap it, since I've had 5 60GB so far and wouldn't mind three years guarantee on a new one. :)

    Who told you £200 to get it fixed? Personally I couldn't live without 4 USB slots but everyone is different.

    Personally, I'd keep the 60gb, but then I'd appreciate the ability to play PS2 games on it. If you're in the UK, technically you have up to 5 years guarantee on electrical equipment by law (it might even be more), but not many people know/kick off about it.

    It seems a little pointless otherwise, the extra 20gb space isn't gonna make much use is it? You could probably sell the 60gb and buy an 80gb PS3 AND a 360 though

    rubbish, even brand new ones don't get anywhere near that

    some people desire BC, others don't. newer models are without BC, remeber.

    True that is alittle OTT, theyre expensive for something second hand but not silly expensive.

    Got mine for £290 on ebayabout 2 months ago. Annoyingly it broke last sunday but ive already got a replacement 'remanufactured' one from Sony...

    £600-700?!? What?!

    LOL!!

    Just had a look on ebay - I reckon you're lucky if you get £350 for a 60GB with a couple of games...I suppose not a bad price if BC is important to you.

    I thought it was, but have rarely used it TBH...

    I have a similar dilemma about selling my NTSC 60gb PS3 and getting a UK 80gb one.

    The main reason is that I want to play UK dvds on it too.

    Most blurays are multi region and the price for them has dropped in the UK. With the exchange rate being crap itís not really much cheaper getting US bluís.

    Having only 2 USBís isnít much of a hardship either as itís only used for charging pads or a memory stick.

    Do you fellaís reckon Iíd get a good price for a NTSC PS3 on ebay?
