Is there anywhere that still has new PS3 Slims for sale aside from scalpers? My 1st gen PS3 finally YLODed and I think I'm better off getting a new model than budgeting for several repairs down the road. What stores have the best odds of having some NIB PS3s in stock/on clearance? Is there a reliable way to check without going to every store and scouring the aisles? If I can't find a new one, am I better off looking at a refurb or taking my chances on a used one? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Walmart was getting the 500gb slims in stock every now and then for $150. I haven't looked there in a while.  A third party seller from their site has one for $200.

Thanks. It seems crazy to buy a PS3 for almost as much as I paid for my PS4, but being out of production really upped the value.

I grab two during target cartwheel. Walmart maybe the only place left if they have it.

OP use that link as it shows the Walmarts around the USA that have it in stock for $149.99. It seems 25% of Walmarts have them. I looked in my area and there were 2 each at several stores. I hope this helps in your search for a new one. I bought one during the Target Clearance for $125 as I wanted another backup. I have 3 working ones and one original 80gb whose Blu-ray player went bad.
