The Playstation 3 is the ultimate home entertainment system. Not only does it play video games in high definition, but it also plays Blu Ray movies, and can act as your digital home theater. While the price has come down considerably over the last few years, they are still out of the reach of a lot of people. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to find a cheap PS3, and they are all fairly easy to do.
Most people assume that a used PS3 is always going to be the cheapest. Many times this is true, but you really never know what kind of treatment the system had before you buy it. This may lead to a broken box taking up space in your entertainment center pretty quickly. If you choose the route of buying a used system buy it from a place like Game Stop or other major video game retailer. Most of the time you’ll be able to test the system before you buy it to make sure that it works, and be able to purchase a warranty on it in the case that it stops working. Buying a system from eBay may be tempting, but it’s impossible to know if it’s even going to work in the first place.
Another option is to simply buy it from Amazon. If you do this, there are some things that have to happen for you to save money on it. First, make sure that you live in a state that doesn’t have to pay sales tax through Amazon. If you meet that criteria, you’re going to save around $20 just on the system over buying it locally, and even more when you buy games and a second controller. Next, make sure that there’s free shipping. There usually is in the US, but without free shipping you aren’t going to save much money at all. Another choice that saves money is to buy a bundle that has a game or two, an HDMI cable, and a second controller. Putting all of these together will almost guarantee that you get your PS3 for a steal! This is also a great place to preorder Playstation Move games.
A PS3 is a cutting edge piece of hardware, and the games that are coming out will keep it relevant for many more years to come. Get one, but use the tips above to make sure that you get it as cheap as you possibly can!
