PS3 Buying Advice

I see ~$75-$200 used Playstation 3s on Craigslist and Amazon, and with Persona 5 coming soon, just wondering what's the cheapest way to get a (working) PS3 without getting invited to a guy's house to 'see that his console works' before getting mugged.

That's about it. You either have to buy it from an online retailer that sells used consoles, or you're stuck meeting in person if you buy it from an online ad.

You could try a pawn shop too..... they tend to be sometimes a little expensive but I was in one the other day and it had rows and rows of old 360s and ps3s.

How much you paid for it? I was just browsing newegg marketplace and found this PS3 500GB with Last of Us. It costs $523.93, plus $79.95 shipping. With tax, it will cost about $677 for a last gen console. Seems a little pricey ...

I don't think a kijiji guy going to post an ad for an old ps3 to mug you... a apple product at a super low price is even pushin it

If you go to a guy's house, you're less likely to get mugged since that's likely where they live. Go with a friend! Have a phone convo before you head over, see if they sound genuine!
