$199 320GB Slim Manufacture Refurbished a Good Deal?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So basically I've been holding out on a PS3. I'm a huge JRPG player and that's just something you don't get on the PC. I was waiting to see if there was any chance of backwards compatibility on the PS4, but that seems unlikely. It would seem cheaper in the long run to just buy a PS3 and purchase used games. That being said, anyone have any experience buying a refurb from the sony store?

Here's the link: http://store.sony.com/p/Refurbished-320GB-PlayStation-PS3-System/en/p/PS394744#features

For another $50 I could get a bundle with one of those new super slim models, but I keep getting mixed reviews about the newest model. They always recommend the original slim instead. Regardless, I think all models are a little overpriced for a system of this age.

I bought a refurbished 320 from gamestop last month for similar reasons for $230 so I think it is a good deal. Looked and worked as if it was brand new and ended up with a couple free older games from another customer that didnt want them. Gamestop said sony refurbs their systems but I doubt it.
