hey guys i have a first gen ps3 (the big fat one) and its a 20gb with a 250gb hard drive installed. i hear they are rare and that they are worth more becasue they are backwards compatable.
1 how much is it woth as is with very minor scratches?
2 can i get more by putting the 20gb hard drive back in it?
If you sell the system to a retailer, they won't give you much. You might be able to find a desperate buyer who really wants the old PS3. You'd be better off including the 250GB HDD, because a buyer will notice right away that it has been upgraded. Since you do have that HDD in there, you might be able to sell it for around $200. I can't imagine you would get more. People can buy a BRAND NEW PS3 at a store with a 320GB HDD for only $300. I doubt you can sell it for more than $250, but I think you can get at least $200.
Good luck to you.
i paid $225 for my Cecha01 on ebay, about 9 months ago and so far have had no problems with it.i even swapped out the 60 gb HD for a 500GB one and everything is awesome, heck i just started a game of Final Fantasy X cuz i havnt played thru it yet!!!
