Where would you all recommend buying a good cheap used ps3?  amazon, gamestop, cowboom? 

Got a 120gb from Cowboom this week.  I would recommend Cowboom but wait for a good deal.  I got a grade 5 with DS3 for $110 + tax.  The PS3 is in great shape.

GameStop isn't the cheapest, but you get a free year warranty right now.

I'd recommend Cowboom. I got a really nice grade 7 PS3 slim 160gb from them for $99 plus shipping, complete. Was missing one rubber foot, which I already replaced. Read the descriptions carefully though, some systems are missing controllers, cables, or are scratched up. Also it's better if the warranty seals are still intact (means they haven't been opened up, not that you still get a warranty).

How does Cowboom determine pricing then?   99 for a grade 7 is so cheap.   Why does it seem all over the place?

There's no rhyme or reason, but I think they periodically run low prices of various consoles (many different grades) for brief periods of time.  The console categories are confusing, since there are multiple different listings for the same console, but some listings say "Starts from: $xxx", while others start at higher prices.  Click "choose best available" next to a lower-priced category to see what grades are available at what prices.  You really have to keep watching the site closely to pick up on the good deals; as to why they do it this way, who knows?

Guy told me that just changed a few days ago to 30 days. No idea if it's actually true or not, or that he was looking to boost his numbers.

Almost a whole month of abandonment. Sadness. However, for the 83 people that actually follow this thread I saw this deal and thought I'd post it here.

 

Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition - PS4 [Digital Code] - $59.99 $8.40
 

Also...

 

It looks like Amazon is price matching a select few from the PSN Superhero Sale @ the PS+ discount price.

 

PS Vita

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - PS Vita [Digital Code] - $39.99 $4.20

Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition - PS Vita [Digital Code] - $39.99 $4.20

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes - PS Vita [Digital Code] - $39.99 $6.30

 

PS3

Batman: Arkham Origins - PS3 [Digital Code] - $59.99 $8.40

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes - PS3 [Digital Code] - $59.99 $8.40

 

 

Update - Looks like all of these deals have expired.

Gotta get those drones flying. Priorities, you know. Oh, and we make this thing called a smartphone, now - check it out!

 

But hey, thanks for finding our deals on your own and letting everyone know. There ought to be a website for that!

I just yesterday got a (edit: fully working) 120GB PS3 Slim model with no leads for £30 from the Liverpool ONE branch of Cash Generators, which, along with its London Road counterpart, is being shuttered at the beginning of August. Everything's currently 70% off the marked price, so there might not be much left there in a few days, but I'd say the store's well worth a shufty for a potential deal.

 

Speaking of which, what's the current best deal for a Wii U console? Any will do, as long as it's sub-£150.

Watch Dogs is on sale today from Amazon. 

The PC controls are pretty bad. However, I like the concept/story enough to where I'm going to give the PS4 version a shot. 

And also lets me free up some needed hardrive space.

Ah man, I thought this was a deal on hardware.  Been wanting for a Vita deal for awhile.  I can wait, my wallet is still recovering after more recent deals.
