I'm planning to buy a PS3 Slim turn off of craigslist later on today and I was wondering if you men had any tips because that me. The seller insurance claims it to be brand new and never played since he/she is not a gamer, however it has been opened up for pictures. Here are the pictures the seller post on his craigslist post

Here is some extra photos of it functioning that he sent out to mine phone

Judging through the time and also date ns asked him because that photos of the system working it appears to it is in legitimate, however I'm still wary just since its craigslist. I've never bought a current gen mechanism off the craigslist prior to not have I owned a slim PS3 therefore is there any way to check it's legitimacy?

TL;DR Planning come buy a new PS3 turn off of craigslist. Something I have to watch the end for?

I bought my 120gb slim off cl. The ad said new in box, i texted the guy, we agreed to fulfill in a quick food parking many out where he lived. I showed up, he popped his truck where the ps3 was and let me open up the box and also see the ps3 was in there. He said he winner it one an office raffle (personally i didn't yes, really ask or care). I had the cash in an envelope in mine car, and when I observed that the ps3 to be legit, ns paid him. The end.

This isn't a big deal dude. Not everything on cl is a scam. I've bought and sold ingredient cars, vidya, and other stuff on my neighborhood cl.

I would examine warranty seal. I'm not sure where it is located on the slim, yet if it has been opened, I would be wary.

Unless you are obtaining a great deal I would certainly pick a brand-new PS3- prefer the white one the is comes out next week v a year the PS+.If you perform go through with it climate let the seller understand you will desire to check it, so have actually them hook that up and show you a game running on it prior to you pay any kind of money. Good luck

We i agreeed on $170 and I'm reasoning of marketing the controllers the come through it. So if all goes fine I would actually it is in paying about $130 simply for the system. It seems like a decent deal.

Do you want this male to xray the PS3 for bad solder connections? simply buy it brand-new if you're so paranoid.

I've purchase consoles, including PS3s, turn off craigslist. That looks quite convincing, ns agree. I would certainly still firmly insist on testing it yourself though. Bring a PS3 game and a DVD, and also make certain they both play. Make sure you can log in and browse the game stations store. If girlfriend don't have actually a PSN account, you deserve to make one in advancement here.

if the PS3 is truly old and unused, girlfriend won't it is in able to connect to the game stations store, due to the fact that it will require a firmware update. This is normal, and at that point I would certainly not update it, I'd call it good.

Another factor I'm skeptical around this is the the seller won't let me test it.
