I have a PS3 and recently just sold all my games worth any value whatsoever because I needed money. Really the only games I play now are old PS2 games. I don't like Grand Theft Auto and don't play Metal Gear but I do love Unreal and have owned every Madden since 93. Theres plenty of games for PS3 I'll miss and don't have or don't have anymore.

Basically I'm thinking about trading in my PS3 to maybe Gamestop[yikes] for a Wii.

What is a ballpark value I can get for my PS3 at Gamestop for trade in and sale and how much is a Wii running up now?

And is it worth it?

Also what games for Wii are worth getting if I do this.

I can move this to the gaming thread if necessary.

Sell it on eBay or Craigslist for the best value. Gamestop does not give you what your PS3 is worth.

Just call up your local Gamestop and ask them. Also, I personally don't think it would be a smart move to trade in your PS3 for a Wii. I have both and even though I don't really have many PS3 games, I still use it a ton more than my Wii. The Wii is fun for when you have friends over, but it lacks in single player. The PS3 is just a good overall media system. That's all just my 2 cents.

Don't get a Wii, seriously. They're an absolute ton of fun when you first play, but everybody gets bored senseless with them sooner or later. The games aren't that great, imo. Plus a lot of my friends have them but they're not happy with them.

Stick with PS3, I'd say. A lot of games coming out soon, just keep yer eyes peeled for a good one.

don't trade in your ps3 for a wii. I've got both of them and trust me the wii collects dust compared to the ps3. It's fun for the gimmick at the start but the only extended play you will get out of it will be with multiplayer.

Well I don't know why but my internet connection to my PS3 gaming isn't working so I'm really not even using my PS3 at all. I'm not too internet internet savvy but maybe just need some help with that but ...

Any idea the value I can get for my PS3 and how much a Wii is costing nowadays?

EDIT: According to Gamestop a Wii is costing more than a PS3

You will regret it. I have a PS3 and a Wii. Hate my Wii. Never play it.

PS3 is better. Just persevere until better games come out, they are due. eg Bioshock. (Better than 360 'cause it will look better and run smoother)

DO NOT EVER EVER EVER EVER TRADE ANYTHING TO GAMESTOP.

*ahem*

You will get probably 1/10 of the value of the system if you sell it to them.

For example, my friend wanted to trade in his PSP back when they were around 200 dollars. They offered him 45 bucks or 60 bucks for store credit.

Or you could sell it on ebay/amazon for a little lower than the listing price, rather than get a fraction of it.

Good call. I'm thinking of selling it on ebay right now but its only looking like 250 on ebay and exactly the same for a Wii.

I want to trade for a Wii though. I work at Target and thinking I could just buy it there and get like 20-30bux off.

Why don't you just save up and get one then? Keep your PS3, might be something in the pipes you'd like but don't know about, also, it plays Blu Ray, which is pretty useful IMO.

I would sell the PS3 online, then use the case to get it at target.

Blu Ray players are the same price as PS3's more or less. So you may as well keep it as a Blu Ray player?

I'd trade my hypothetical Ps3 for an N64 with Duke Nukem....
How I miss that game.

But I've been ripped off of consoles before from dealers at game stores... They broke within a week, and my "warranty" didn't cover them.

I wouldn't trade a Ps3 for a Wii though. Whuss wrong witchu?
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

Okay well I just called my work[Target] to see how much a Wii was and its 250 at my work but we don't have any and haven't for a month they said and doesn't look like we're getting any soon.

I just got paid today and could buy one I guess but it would be like all my money and I couldn't buy it at Target I suppose.
