Considering Gamestop offered me I think 70 something dollars for my PS3 slim (1st gen), I'd say the price isnt outside the realm of reasonable.

They are studying how to make a more powerful console because the 360 and xbone are graphically inferior to the ps3 and ps4 in their respective gens.

Burn them?

#12 Posted by MrXboxOne (743 posts) -

My guess is NS plans on buying Sony once they go bankrupt and will rename it the Microsoft Playstation 3.

#13 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Staring at them and pondering, "Where did we go wrong?"

Wouldn't it make more sense if MS did that?

trying to find out how sony is putting so much power into ps3 which has better gfx than xboxone

#16 Posted by MrXboxOne (743 posts) -

Oh jank. Are you still upset Sony is going belly up? Still upset Ryse is the critically acclaimed graphics king of next gen? Don't worry. When MS buys Sony I'm sure they will still allow Naughty Dog to still make boring games no one buys.

trading them into GameStop for X1s which they'll then sell back to GameSpot to keep their shipping numbers up

Bet my tuition they are donating them somewhere and using the write off on taxes.

They're gonna stick them on stakes and display them in the center of town.

Stealing Blu-ray drives out of them.... Then selling the husk.

Darn it, you beat me to it, I was going to say that :P

Though that said, PS3 BD Drives are awful, 2x is just too slow for anything other than movies.

Probably trying to reverse engineer it so they can figure out how to build a console without a power brick.

Trying to sell a half assed console. If I had one in my possession I'd throw it out the window.

#25 Posted by no-scope-AK47 (2819 posts) -

My guess would be reselling them and making money.

#26 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16963 posts) -

Playing games on them, as there is barely anything to play on Xbone

Giving them to their employees so they can study how to make good games and good consoles.

@sts106mat: Wow what a stupid picture. That's an iron....not an irony. Look...it's lame that you are whining. It's lame that you have no sense of humor. It's lame that you are so brand blind that anything sets you off.

@sts106mat: I said it was stupid......and it was used by YOU....I don't care that you didn't make it....you used it as though it was good. Sorry but most people don't see stupidity as funny.

Making their CLOUD server with them.

#38 Posted by bezza2011 (2656 posts) -

Lol well will it really drag someone from a ps3 to the xbox one, i mean if you go trade in your ps3 and get a ps4 it works out cheaper than the xbox one offer anyway so it does beg the question why do they want the ps3s

Burying them next to all those Atari 2600 E.T. games in the landfill. lol!!

The best response I saw was, "Connection them all together to make XBoneNow. for XBox 360 B/C.

It's not just the PS3 you can trade in. You can also trade in XBox 360 S & E models. Why anyone would trade any of these viable systems in with no B/C actually in place yet, is beyond me. I'll be keeping my XBox 360 and PS3 for a long, long time.

This is what happens to you if you open an XB1.

If your going to trade in your ps3 I would get a ps4. You go to gamestop and you can get over 100 store credit and you put that towards a ps4. We all know Sony has the best 1st party games and exclusives. We all know that psn plus is the best online service for 10 bucks less. We all know the ps4 has the best console version of multiplats. We all know you can swap out the hard drive for a 2tb laptop drive on the cheap or an ssd.

We all know that ps now is the future. There is even a emulator for the ps1/2 coming. So you can upgrade for 300 or less with the credit. Only thing is ps4's are hard to come by and there are many great ps3 games coming in 2014. I for one am playing GT6 now a great racing game.

Assuming people are actually giving them their ps3. I'm not giving mine, I still own my nintendo from 21 years ago

Reverse engineering, perhaps?

#45 Posted by leandrro (909 posts) -

destroyng them

its better to waste 100 dollars and get a new consumer to act as a lemming buying your overpriced games than let him have the option to buy overpriced games elsewere
