I know this isn't a PC, but anyone have an idea of how much a used (2 year old) PS3 with a 320GB hard drive would go for? It has 2 controllers, and I'll include the games MOdern Warfare Black Ops, Fallout 3, and Fallout New Vegas, as well as FIFA 2011.
It's in good condition, and is barely used (hence the reason I'm selling it.)

Any ideas on it's value? A new 160/250GB goes for about $250 I think (with one control and no games)

Little to nothing.

They just never have, and still don't have, titles that reach a broad audience that Xbox 360's have too. Even with the PS4 release, I'm just wondering how many games I'd actually play. Like waves, they sadly only come in 3's. I know I have no personal interest in any Sony besides wanting to play Gran Turismo, but Forza seems to have that covered pretty well.

I'd just hang onto it. I'm searching eBay N64's just for Mario Kart 64 and they're marking them up lately. You have a machine that will run rare games. In 5 years, we'll be looking for them (not those games you listed those...think proprietary). My chipped PS1 and PS2 could easily pull a big chunk of money. I can't chip the 3 or I'd add it to my collection and have an epic bidding war.

You didn't say, but I'm assuming this is one of the models that does not have the PS2 hardware compatibility?

If it had that I would say it would be worth more.

The most I would pay for a used PS3 is around $150. My rule of thumb is anything that's owned past its return date (and especially it's warranty period) immediately gets a 50% depreciation rate from the newest model.

However, truthfully, I wouldn't buy it for more than $100.
