Should I buy new Uncharted 250GB PS3 or used 500GB PS3?

8 replies 1712 views Edited Oct 1, 2013

Please help me decide.  My daughter (15) has asked for a PS3 for Christmas.  My budget for her is around $250.  Should I buy a brand new Uncharted PS3 with less memory or a used one with twice the memory for less money (around $200).  If I buy used she'll be able to get a couple more things she wants like a game and movie.

 

Right now I'm kind of leaning towards the used but I'm afraid a used one might not last as long as a new one.  I would love to hear some opinions to help me out.

I would go with the uncharted bundle. Not only does it come with a very great game, it also comes with one year playstation plus. Unless your daughter is into downloading every single one of her games the 250 gig HDD should be more than enough. Plus, with the new model you have the one year warranty with sony.

I would definately go for the new one.

 

What if you buy a used one and it doesn't work or its even bannned online.

 

With a new one you get full warranty  and free online play with a great game included.

Didn't he just say the budget for her is $250

Which sadly isn't enough for a ps4

If GTA V is an option for a game, you can get a bundle with the game and a 500GB ps3 for $270, close to the $250 you are looking at spending.

Looks like the status quo is to buy a new PS3 all around so I'll quit watching for a used one.  I will probably wait for black Friday and see if I can get a good price on a bundle.  Thank you for all the replies.
