Like was said in the comments section - US only, like most of the console's functionality. :P

But if it were to come across the pond, I wouldn't think about trading in my lovely new PS3. I'd be gutted though, because after a few years of it sitting in a cupboard, I finally traded in my 360 Elite last Friday - if it's true 360 E falls under said 'promotion' also.


yes 360 too, funny how the trolls seem to ignore that part. Doesn't make it look as pathetic when its both last gen consoles.


Does it have to be mint condition? My MK1 is missing the eject button

I could easily get $100 for my PS3 without having to trade it in for an XBox One, how is this a good deal in any way?!?

I think I'd rather get an extra $50 and sell it on ebay in all honesty. $100 for a PS3 is a terrible deal.

I wonder what they'll actually do with all the PS3s. My guess is some sort of walking clock... O_o

Only $100 off?
Really? My PS3 has given me less hassle than any MS product I've owned. Plus, all exclusives (Uncharted The Last of Us, Starhawk, Wahawk, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5, better FFXIII series -Admit it, it's better on PS3-, Ratchet and Clank, Sly Copper, Infamous, and God of War, FFX/X-2 HD ect) kill all of the Xbox exclusives.
I could get way more for my PS3 than $100. Plus PS+ is much more worth $50 a year than Xbox Live Gold. Controller is a matter of preference. I prefer the PS3 controller cause I've grown up with it. I only got my 360 for Halo 3 and slightly better versions of Call of Duty (When I was a big fan of it).
I'd expect at least $125 for a PS3, if not $150.

So trade my system that has a ton of great games for a system that just launched with a very limited selection? Yeah let me go and do that.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD
Tales of Xillia 2
Tales of Symphonia HD
FFX HD

Alone are worth keeping my PS3.


Someone people don't feel the same way you do. Some people also don't want to replay old PS2/gamecube games on their PS3.

I have a launch 60 GB PS3 in perfect working order, I could get more than $100 for it.

Not to mention all the games still coming out for it, you'd be mad to get rid of it.

The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

And chances are those same people already traded in their PS3s to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One. The people who still have PS3s obviously still keep them for future games like those listed above. Of course this doesn't mean there won't be any people taking advantage of this deal.

Only reason why I won't sell my PS3(Might sell my xbox 360 soon) is because I have a perfect working Launch Ps3 with real backwards compatibility. I haven't really used Bc recently (only to play old fighting games) as long as my Ps3 is functioning I will cherish it.
