    Yep! It took a lot of effort tbh, but it paid off in the end. At one point I had about sixteen on watch, just to get a decent deal.

    Depends if you think playing 4 or so games is worth 90 (plus the cost of the games) until the next gens are upon us...

    I would say it's definitely worth it, especially if you pick up some of the exclusives cheap and a PS+ sub for a few months.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    My opinion is that you are mentally deficient.

    So you do in fact care.

    My heart is aglow at your compassion.

    The PS4 isn't backwards compatible. The PS3 has a lot of games worth paying for.

    Aside from the exclusives of course. You know, the games that the PS3 doesn't have.

    I would love to get something for my 360. But it's in rough shape. It's quite noisy, the hard drive is failing, and the disc drive won't eject half the time.

    This is too funny.

    DarkSpaceDS spends his time in another thread telling us that the 'real games' are the arcade/indie titles. Then he says that the 'PS3 has all the games the 360' has, but doesn't account for the fact that XBLA is absolutely awash with some of the best games - arcade or otherwise - this gen, many of which are exclusive to that service.

    Well played Darkspace, well played.

    Would I be doing a stupid to buy a new sealed PS3 from eBay ? The seller only has 2 ratings (although they are 100%, one for selling a new sealed 3DS).

    It works out to be about 170 for 500Gb super slim with Last of Us, both described as new and sealed.

    I asked if there is any guarantee but no reply yet

    Can I get access to Sony warranty if I don't have a shop receipt as such ?

    It would have to be a saving large enough to be worth the risk. But Sony should cover you for a year on a new PS3.

    Personally, I'd spend 5-10 more to get it from a more obviously trustworthy source, but if you're talking a 20-30 saving... how much is peace of mind worth to you? ^^ We had a 500GB for 159 delivered on the last page, and Zavvi had the 500GB PS3 + TLOu + 90-day PSN+ for 200 a couple of days ago, to give you some context.

    Personally, I'd be pushing/waiting to get the 12GB Flimsy Slim for 110-120 and pair it with a 1TB HDD for ~40.

    I would not touch it.
    The warranty will be in the box, but even so, not worth the risk.
    I would only buy something like that from a "preferred seller" or whatever it is they call them with tons of feedback.

    Or via Amazon's warehouse were the item is from another seller, but Amazon deal with it, and therefore you deal directly with Amazon.

    @DUFFMAN5 @PenguinJim Thanks for talking some sense in to me !!! I'll give this one a miss. I'm trying to wait but its hard when you want to buy a shiny thing (and people keep talking about how good The Last of Us is).

    I think the chaps speak the truth in regard to that sale!

    I reckon there has to be a price cut around the PS4's launch (and I'm sure TLoU will have dropped a bit in price by then), so a few months' wait could pay off nicely.

    @DarkSpaceDS I'd gladly pay to see a TV show starring you (comedy of course). I'm not on here that much but I see your insights pop-up in the comments section and the few threads I visit, and I always have a giggle.
