I have the fat 80gb model and I don’t really care about backwards compatibility if that is the only benefit sticking with the old one provides. However, altogether with tax my total to send it in for a repair would be $137 while, as the prices look right now, a new slim ps3 160gb model is $249.99 at Best Buy.
Is it really worth the extra $113 to scrap the old one? I heard they give you a warranty with your refurbished one for a few months and if it dies again they just give you a new one, no? And isn’t ps4 coming out within the next year or so anyway? Thanks guys! All help is appreciated!
