And inspect it? Unless the PS3 is getting a price drop because of the PS4 I'd like to get a refurb.
By my twitching sword-hand, Morgan, what happened to you?

Here's my tip: DON'T SHOP AT GAMESTOP!

And if you choose to not follow my advice then please please please do not come back here saying how you got burned because we all already know you will when you buy something there.

refurb stuff is almost always good since it was repaired. it's the pure used stuff you got to inspect.

If you live in America, they'd be legally required to let you inspect it, as far as I know.

Lol it's ok to shop there and yes they would let you look at it but probably not Hook it up to A TV as I doubt there is a free TV there

They make a higher profit margin on a refurb and its in their interest to sell it so they should be happy to show it to you. If not, there is something to hide.

Be sure to check the memory on board. I bought my PS3 from there, refurbed, and I paid for the 320 GB. Went home, noticed they didn't wipe the memory from the last user, since all his credentials were still logged in and his stuff downloaded. Anyway, went to settings to see how much memory he had left on there before I wiped it and noticed there was x-amount of GB/96GB or something...I was like, ****, this isn't a 320. Took it back, and they confirmed it was not what I paid for and left with a 320.

Moral of the story is, check for everything, because if you go to buy a 320 and end up with something less than that and find out like two months later when it won't let you download another game because you thought you had enough memory, it'll be too late then.

Don't they already open the box for you?
