When did PS3 come out?

Way back in 2007, the Original PS3 was the must-have console and is classed as one of the best game consoles of all time. 

Altogether there are three PS3 models to choose from, including the PS3 Slim which was released in 2009 and the PS3 Super Slim release date is September 2012.


What is the PS3 price?

Are you scratching your head thinking, well how much is the PS3? When it was first released, the Original PS3 would set gamers back a whopping £425, but you can now buy the console for less than £100, which is a win-win. 

But if your hobby is collecting old consoles or you want a PS3 brand new, it could end up costing you! Sealed PS3 consoles can be valued up to £1570! 

So if you're after a bit of nostalgia and on the hunt for a PS3 to buy, take note that the PS3 prices differ depending on models, condition and hard drive size. 

However, if you're looking to trade in and want to know the PS3 value, just tell us the model, condition and storage for an instant price! We recommend selling your console as soon as possible as older models lose value over time.


How much is a pre-owned PlayStation 3 console?

The best way to get a PS3 console cheap is by shopping refurbished vs buying a PS3 brand new! Here at musicMagpie, our refurbished consoles go through all of the necessary checks to make sure they're in perfect working condition. 

You'll have access to the same great features as new but for a much better price! On top of that, you'll get a FREE 12-month warranty for extra peace of mind. 

Buying a used PS3 also helps the planet by keeping tech in circulation, which is smart for you and smart for the planet.


Is PS3 Original worth it?

One thing to take note of is that the Slim and Super Slim versions can't play older games, so if you're still holding onto your old PS2 games, you won't be able to play them on these particular models. 

You will also need a large hard drive if you're planning on downloading games instead of playing from a disc. 

The PS3 Slim and PS3 Super Slim models offer larger storage options, with the Slim model available in up to 320GB and Super Slim available in up to 500 GB. The highest storage option for the Orignal PS3 is 160GB.
