Im trying to find a used PS3, about 60 GB, in very good condition for about $250-$300. Im sick of XBOX, Microsoft is a POS. Does anyone know of a good site, or know anyone trying to sell a PS3 that fits this description?

i would be iffy buying any console used from anyone. You dont know how much that person have used their ps3.

I bought mine used for 300 bucks with 2 controllers and 3 games, its a launch system. BC 60 gig version, but the guy i bought it from is in jail. Still is actually, i knew he didnt use it alot, beucase it was in a box for 7 months before he told his wife to sell it to me. lol

backwards compatibility would be nice, but its not a major need I guess. I must admit, I was a Playstion guy for about 10 years straight. Then over the holiday this past year I decided to try out Xbox 360 because it was cheaper, and I wanted to give them a chance. Well lets just say that was a big mistake. I should have never turned away from Sony. I dont even know why Microsoft makes game consoles. Its pretty sad. But thanks for the replies. I am still looking. BTW, I need to sell my P.O.S. Xbox if anyone is interested. I am getting it refurbished, and will sell when it comes back. I also have a few sports games to go along with it.

Meh, PC is the best. I don't know why consoles are even made. :p

See, thats someone you can trust though. Getting random ps3 or xbox from someone you dont know is bad.

PC used to be the best. Alot of companies dont even make games for PC anymore because of pirates.

Ok...Im getting a PS3 tomorrow, has 320GB, comes with controller, and all cords for $300. According to this guy it is in great condition and hasn't ever had any problems. Sound like a good deal???

Worst case (taking him for his word about it working) it's a non-BC version with a SIXAXIS instead of a Dual Shock 3 (so no rumble) and a 320gb ($70 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152111) hard drive in it. Maybe the discount if $100 on top of the hard drive is because it's an older 60gb with hardware BC and they don't know what they're doing and need the $$.

Good price to find out if the grass is greener, but I wouldn't get rid of the 360 unless you don't have any friends to play it with and you/your significant other don't think you'll ever stream Netflix (and now Last.FM) on the thing.

Now go buy inFamous, and enjoy!

Man, that game gets HARDER the furthe you get into it. I was up until midnight the past couple of nights getting pretty frustrated with some levels. Really good game, though!

It's gonna be only the second game I've finished, other than COD WaW. I have ten games I stopped playing halfway through. I plan to get back and finish them though, I'm gonna finish Uncharted 1 next.

I will say that the inFamous game does look pretty sweet.

I have issues with Uncharted... and many games really. Not a big puzzle guy, so that's a big strike against Uncharted as it is... I got to that submarine near the beginning where you have to navigate a bunch of cliffs and said screw it after dying a handful of times... havent touched it since.

Since playing EQ though for several years, I've had gaming ADD with everything, I don't finish games... as soon as I get to the 'grind' point (the point where the meat of the game is just repeating the same thing more or less over and over until it ends), I just lose interest and never touch it again. First game I've 'finished' in years was HAWX on PC. I'm still having fun with inFamous, I'm confident I'll finish it.

Just wanted to say, my playstation situation is over. I got an amazing deal. The PS3 has 320 GB on it, and is running great. I talked the guy down 60 bucks. I bought it for 240 dollars. Awesome deal! Good bye Xbox!

I am also about half-way thru GTA4 MGS4 R2m COD4 and Killzone2 and R&C tool of destruction...and Heavenly Sword. I bought Bioshock and Falllout 3 and haven't even opened them yet cuz I want to finish them once I start them.

Sounds like a deal. Ill get it on the net asap. It has WiFi built in, but my house has horrible signal. I might have to wait and go to a buddy's house or something to get it connected. Does anyone know of anything that might help it get better signal?

At last!! Online play is free!!! Right?? lol.

I have tried wireless with the router right next to the PS3 and I still prefer wired. Absolutely no break in signal. If it is possible at all just go wired.

There should be a setting called "users" or something like that, you need to make a new user, which will let you create a new PSN account.
