    Ok I'm planning on getting a slim ps3 and get a 1tb hdd, it's gonna cost £250 altogether. Before I can get it i need to sell or have a buyer for my phat, how much is a phat worth with 2 non dual shock controllers and a 250gb hdd and the original hdd I think it 40gb plus I might as well throw in Red River, Dragon Rising and Far Cry 2

    I was thinking £110, is that too expensive?

    How are you going to get your data on to the new machine if you sell the phat first?

    Backup won't transfer locked saves. You could put locked saves onto PS+ and do a backup. Better is the PS3 to PS3 transfer which does everything without having to **** n faff about.

    Dont think fat ps3 are really selling TBH. If you stuck it on ebay you would get about £80. Less commission paypal fees etc you might end up with £65. (Re furbished ones are NOT selling at £84.99) . Why not trade it in for a newer model?
    BTW theres a HDD here for you off Barry,

    I starting to think this isn't worth it, if a ps4 does get released next year I might only use the slim for 17 months :-\

    That and after looking on ebay I might only just get £100 :(
