Thread Starter 
60GB SKU Playstation 3 with 320GB Western Digital HDD upgrade (original HDD not included). Includes all original accessories and original box. Everything darn near mint condition.

Fortunately for you, you can easily get a grand out of the pair, simply put, if they're in mint condition and work, they're both worth a ton.

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.

The 60GB version is apparaised here for ~$200
Im really not shure what the extra hdd adds but
if you consider ~$200 as the "normal" price for a ps3 and add maybe ~40$
for the hdd then you would get max. $240.

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

Definitely not worth a grand for both.

I'd say $250-$300 shipped.

I have an 80GB with the software emulation. Its worth 200.

The most you can get out a mint condition 60GB is around $350.

Those high prices you see are for SEALED units.

Btw, a 40GB has NO PS2 Game support. The 40GB came out in late 2007 when Sony stripped all PS2 capability from the machine.


The 20GB and 60GB were launch models, they had everything SACD support, ncard reader, 4 USB ports etc. (the 20GB lacked Wifi). They are the most desirable PS3's.

aren't the 20GB units somewhat of a rarity, I remember them being very quietly released, i only just missed out on the 60GB and the 80GB (the worst timing) but remember paying about £400 for a 40GB and 2 games.

id be lucky to see £150.

but sell the 60GB for about $400, the 320GB factor of it will most definitely wet the appetite of many a n00b.
