60GB - a built in multi card reader, PS2, PSX backwards compatibility, better case design than the current PS3 line, as well as a better cooling system because of the BBC Proc. and the Emotion Proc. I have seen these easily selling for around $600.00, with the box, manuals and all original accessories, and HDD upgrade, $650 - $700. It WILL sell quickly.
40GB - Exactly the same as the aforementioned 60GB PS3, minus the card reader. Seen these selling for around $450.00. With all your accessories and unit upgrades you should be able to expect $450 - $550.
The simple reason that these lines of PS3's are worth so much and sell so quickly is because they were originally built with the PS2's Emotion Engine chip. As any newer PS3's no longer support backwards compatibility, one would need to go out and ourchase a PS2 in order to play all of their games once they upgrade. You could literally slap any price you want on either of these units and sell them for it. But as for actual "book" value, I would put them in the aforementioned price ranges.

What are you smoking there. He can get that money only if he screw someone who doesnt know anything about ps3's. They were worthed before, but now price has gone down, but having a ps3 with EEC in it is a damn nice thing to own.
OP, just keep it, otherwise $225 - $250
