Time to Ditch the Playstation 3...


[link to this post]
 
In a few weeks time I'm packing the lot up and trading it all in at Blockbusters as i don't want a load of unnecessary devices cluttering up the space on my Television stand especially when i doubt they will ever get used again .

The biggest problem i have with trading in the 7 year old Playstation 3 is the trade in value has took a almighty drop,2 months ago it was £70 for my 120gig slim model and now as i feared the trade in value is the same as a recent game such as GTA5 .

£30 for a playstation 3 is criminal and i predicted this would happen because retailers are going to be inundated with Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and they don't really want them.

People on here are going to say i should keep it,but whats the point in keeping something that is basically going to be unplugged and disconnected boxed away and gathering dust for months if not years.

You see i don't get the urge to play older games or even newer games when there is something better on the market,it makes more sense to me to have that space allocated to may be a Xbox one in the future if that becomes the platform of choice.

At least the Playstation 3 and a copy of GTA5 and The last of us buys me a couple of the next generation games even though i think the trade in price is a joke.

I will be watching the Xbox and Playstation 4 youtube videos with interest once they get released in the USA but as for now and the delay of a few games i only have 3 ordered for the Playstation 4 and there all Shooters.

Your post to me is a prime argument why BC should be on the new consoles.

Should be some bargains about for the PS3 once PS4 launches. laugh

Would be good as just a media player if they are cheap enough.

Backwards Compatibility, ie play old generation games on the next console.

Trade in prices are normally low and the market of supply and demand will control the price, tech never holds its price once its old so either you take what you can get or continue to use it till it stops working.

yep, I agree with his point about clutter.

in my case I kept the ps3 over the ps4 as it has more games, if the PS4 had BC its quite possible I would have ordered one already. But having both would be a pain, its already a bit messy having the 360 and ps3 both setup at same time.
