    I have bought and sold like 5 ps3s in my craigslist career lol. But if I were you I would just ask for about 150-225 depending on what it comes with for about 325 I've gotten 2 ps3s with 1 controller each and mw3 each and resold one for 250 to buy my astros. The secret though is just to wait for a good deal and spend like 200 when the same deal comes up for 150 or a even better deal for 200. I hope i helped you and good luck finding a new Playstation 3 Smile when you get it you can add me EyeGotSkili

    yeah i would be getting it from craigslist, i see fats for like 90 and sometimes lower, but there older so it would get YLOD, and i can probable get a slim for like 120, so im gonna do that, i just need a slim with a controller and the cables, if i could get it with mw3 or bo it would help but idc

    ok slim is better then fat but fat are cheaper and the "overheat" thing of the fatĀ“s it depends on how many hours you play and if the room is hot. i have mine since 2008, i use the ps3 for 4 hours everyday day and it stills rocking! never had a problem.
