How much are ps3s worth scrap / parts

Post by vp002 » Sat Jul 07, 2012 11:19 am

Dear all,

Right chaps if any one can help its you guys , my ps3 (old phat 40gb) has had the green screen of death and is unrepairable , ive taken it to a couple of repairists and one said it was ok and the other it worked for a while then did the same problem when i got it home, so ive decided to scrap it but was wondering if i can get any thing for it etc etc etc

Thanks in advance,

Vinny

Strip it for parts, I often see working Blu-ray drives going for about £15 - £30 on a good day (if all working). I've seen some of the empty cases up for sale, never see the auctions through to the end so no idea of value but just have a general nosy on eBay and make a decision if its worth your time to strip it or just bin it.

Yep if you have the time part it out on ebay or sell as spares or repair.

I know the PS2 backwards compatable ones tend to be desireable, being that its very close to a PC there should be plenty you can sell on, the HDD if memory serves is a regular style one.

Yep, you can definitely get money for the Bluray drive and Hard Drive, and a few quid for the other bits and bobs...
