How Much do Pawn Shops Pay for PS3 Systems?

How much do pawn shops pay for PS3 systems? This depends on a few different factors.

The first is the model. There are various models of PS3 and if yours is considered to be more desirable based on its features, you could get more money for it. The second factor is storage capacity. This goes hand-in-hand with the model. However, the higher the storage capacity, the better. Find your PS3 model using the number on the rear or bottom of your system. It will start with “CECH.”

The condition of your system will affect how much a pawn shop pays for your PS3. If it’s showing signs of damage, you will get less money for it. If it is in pristine condition, you will be more likely to get top dollar for that model.

Lastly, including the box and all the components will affect how much you can get for a PS3. This includes the controllers, all cords and if you throw in a few extra games. What’s more, the box and the manual will help, too!

If you think of the next person the shop is going to sell it to, the package will look more desirable on the whole the more the pawn shop includes in the next sale. Make the PS3 more “re- sellable” for the pawn shop and you are likely to get a higher price for your console.
