160GB vs. 320GB PS3 bundle - opinions?

So I picked up the 160GB slim PS3 yesterday. I'm planning on selling off my 80GB and switching over.

Now I'm thinking I should've just picked up the 320GB Move bundle. The extra hard drive space would come in useful for the amount of stuff I download, and I really don't feel like switching the hard drive on my own lately. Plus, the 320GB bundle is basically the price of the 160GB + Move on their own.

However, I already bought and opened the Move on Friday. Would you guys make the switch? Do you think I could sell of the Move from the 320GB for at least close to $100? How does the Move come packaged when it's in the 320GB bundle? I really feel like I'm going to fill the 160GB up. I'm constantly deleting things to make room on my 80GB.

That's why I stated that I opened it. It was sealed with 3 stickers, and I don't think they'd take it back. I'm pretty sure the return policy on hardware is pretty strict - anyone know? If the Move that's inside the 320GB package is the same, I could take that one and return it, but I have a feeling it's not packaged in the same way.

Otherwise, you're right, it would be a no-brainer. I didn't plan to buy a new PS3. It was a spur of the moment thing with Optimum points. :)

where did you buy it?

also its not bundled the same way because the move bundle (without ps3) is in its own box but i am assuming the 320gb bundle has everything in the ps3 box so not really the same thing.

They will take it back, obviously! Just present the recept....

I dont see why they wouldnt take it back, ive taken back hardware before. Just say it doesnt work or something and then ask for the bundle. No problems at all.

Here's a pic of the move controller straight out of my 320GB bundle. The is no retail packaging for the accessories, just plastic wrap. It's divided up in the egg carton cardboard thing like everything else.

SDM is very strict on their no return policy for opened electronics. You can always try, but don't expect it will happen. However if the box is still unopened and sealed, then I think you could still return it.

I bought the 160GB PS3 from Shoppers, but I bought Move (the $99 package) from EB Games. Will EB Games let me return it the Move package (opened)? I don't think they would.
