    Hi everyone.

    I very rarely use my PS3 since I am a full-time college student and a stay-at-home father of 3 boys. I think I played games on it for maybe 6 hours so far this year, and last year I played it for maybe 30 hours total. As you can see, it gets less and less use and it has been sitting on my entertainment center powered off for the past month(I was able to play it for those 6 hours during a semester break). I could easily look on eBay or Amazon to see what they're going for, but I would really prefer some interaction and advice from real people. Thanks in advance.

    I've been casually viewing craigslist in my area (Detroit Metro) to see if there's a solid used PS3 that I could snatch up since I play whenever I'm at my friend's place, but don't have one. I've seen $170-$320 for various versions and controller/basic included cables as the range. That's an extensive list of extras, though. You'd probably have a better chance of selling the console and then games separately.

    Could be totally different in your area, though, so I say browse CL, Amazon, eBay. Amazon or eBay could be a place where you'd have a better chance selling it as a package or most of the stuff in a bundle.

    i would say 200 +/- a few dollars.

    I sold my 60gb launch model for $140 on monday. the console, controller, cables, 2 games, and 1 blu-ray.

    Although you have quite a few games and accessories, most of them are years old and not worth much. Looking for Motorstorm on Amazon, I found 192 copies starting at $3.42 or something close to that, so be realistic haha.

    Your best bet to make more money would be to sell the games separately(only including 2 or 3 with the consoles itself).

    Nobody will buy all of that at once and if they do, you're gonna make way less money than you would have otherwise. Unless you're just looking to get rid of it, with everything, and considering it has backward compatibility(thus, rare) you might be able to get between 250 and 300 for the whole package.
