That depends where you are located. To be perfectly honest I don't recommend purchasing used hardware, for the warranty reasons alone. At least here in Canada, I have seen 160GB PS3 models being on sale this week for 229$ brand new which also comes with some games bundled.

It's a pretty good deal and it's worth spending little extra money for new product you know will work. I would look around your regular electronic boutiques: Future Shop, Best Buy, Gamestop, etc. As long as you get your proper warranty and the system is new. Good luck. :)

Best value for your money would be the 160gbnew system. Gamestop I suppose would be the easiest route of buying it.

the thing is, if you can wait the PS4 should be coming out this fall, and it's rumored that they're going to keep the price down to $350 coming out of the gate.

If you don't care a lot about storage you can get PS3s for as low as $150 used at Gamestop. The new ones with the most storage usually run about $250 new but they often go on sale, so I'd keep an eye out.

Your best bet at this point would be to just get a PS3 for the exclusives. There are a good handful but the ones that stand out are the Uncharted series, God of War 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, the Ico/Shadow HD collection, and there are a few others still yet to be released. The one that really has been standing out so far is The Last of Us.

A new PS3 160Giger Slim can be bought at Shopers right now for $229.99. Or you can get an PS3 40Giger for $149.99 at Gamestop. But you can get a new PS3 superslim for $269.99 which comes with 2 games. Uncharted 3 GoTY edition and Dust 514 which has $30.00 worth of DLC in the form of a PSN voucher. The console has 250GB HDD.

PS3 can be had for cheap these days.
