I have been trying to figure out a way to get the most bang for my buck with my PS3 and 360 slim. Craigslist would be the ideal scenario, but recently the market seems to be flooded with 360s and ps3s, with a 250 gig PS3 slim going for maybe 150-200.
I know I may catch some flak here, but gamestop might be the best and easiest option right now, especially if you haven't become a "Pro" rewards member yet. Apparently, if you upgrade to Pro for $15, you get a one time 50% extra trade in bonus coupon that can be used on everything you trade in, but just one time.
I just called and had the guy quote me how much I would get for the following (the credit amounts include the 50% bonus):
PS3 250 gig: $165
360 Slim 250 gig: $202.50
One sixaxis controller: $25.5 (Dualshock controller would be $30)
This all adds up to $423 in credit. If i were to try and sell all this tuff on c-list, I would maybe get $450 to $500 (max) in cash, if I was lucky.
Plus, with the Pro membership, all the games and accessories you may trade in would get an extra 10% credit stacked onto the 50% credit.
Of course the only problem is now I'm stuck with no gaming console for 5 months.....decisions decisions.
