Did I get burned? just got a ps3 on ebay

just wondering what you guys thought....i just won an 80gb ps3 on ebay. it was described as like new (only used 6 times) and comes with 2 controllers.

assuming the description was accurate do you think $220 was a fair price?

Depends. Does it come with the warranty? You wouldn't pay more than $50'ish extra for a brand new 80gb ps3 so I guess if saving $50'ish dollars is a big deal and it turns out it runs perfect and still has the warranty, then sure.

Hopefully it isn't banned (;

no warranty ...you may be rite (might have been better to come off 50 bones) though i have been doing some research and found that it is a first generation ps3 (if it is as unused as the seller claims) and these are easier to mad and harder to come by...all i can do is hope that it lasts me for a few years

TBH I would be more concerned about whether its been banned from PSN or not. But if you don't care about PSN then that doesn't matter.

If its first gen I would say you made out...because of the backwards compatibility

You can tell it's only first gen by the hard-drive size 80GB. They sell cheaper now, but normally with trade in. If it's a unused one, it might of been a trader one? With consoles like the PS3, the games you get for it can be costly, some people only have one or two games and get bored of it quick, renting games and only buying the replayable gameplay ones is the best option. Also it needs a good big screen HDTV to make the most of. Depends on the reason for selling, still might be a good buy.

Like Jay.M said check if it's banned or not.

Have fun gaming!

This would be my main concern as well. It's not uncommon for these "slightly used" consoles to be banned from online play.

I haven't heard a lot about PS3 but I do know it's an issue with X-Box and once banned I've read it's nearly impossible to be unbanned.

You can't change the MAC address so if a console is banned it's banned for life. Can't be unbanned unless Sony unbans it.
