    Most people that are willing to pay those high prices for the first gen BC PS3's are collectors. There looking for systems that are mint and have never been opened and still running OFW. But there are the select few that don't really know what there buying and as soon as they see the backwards compatible all they think is ohh i want that ( As the saying goes more money then brains). And also PS3's on ebay listed at those high prices and PS3's selling at those high prices on ebay are two totally different things. You can list your PS3 or any item for any price you want doesn't mean its going to sell for that price or even close to that price.

    True, it all comes down to the individual. But non-hacked used backwards compatible PS3s can still fetch high based on the condition. Add in buyer assurance (A good return policy), jailbroken, and decent condition would likely result in a high price. Look at ebay: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...0gb+ps3&_sop=3

    Plenty of non-hacked 60gb PS3s selling used or like-new for $400+

    Look man, stop thinking you have a pot of gold there. I have 7 systems here like yours, that i dont dare sell, cuz i care about my customers. That model is the worst one of the bunch for ylod. And you saying temps of 72' are normal is absurd. It doesnt matter if you change the thermal paste on top of the cpu and gpu. The issue is the weak non leaded solder under these chips that is prone to fail sooner or latter. You could have a console like yours running at temps around 60' and it could still ylod, just from regular use.

    If you wanna cash in on some innocent, unknowledgeable people, go for it. But thats just shady.

    True, but at the moment the average temps are 64c for the GPU and 68c for the CPU, which results in a pretty quiet fan. I don't have any YLOD symptoms. This system could of course just randomly die, but as it is now it has no signs of stopping. I don't actually plan to sell it, I was trying to figure out how much this would be worth considering its in good shape + jailbroken. You might not agree that selling it for high is reasonable, but its how its done on ebay. You want the BC system? You gotta pay a sum comparable to a new system, more or less depending on the condition. If I DID sell mine, I'd easily give a month return policy.

    Also how dare you assume I'm trying to cheap out someone and sell them a dying system? You don't know what you are talking about. I'd inform everyone.
    And my search of previously sold 60gb PS3s on ebay confirms my theory that this system I have could easily fetch $400. My account has 100% positive reviews, I offer good return policy, and my system is in good shape. It will remain in good shape. I bet if you had learned of my system and it's 68c average temps 2 years ago you'd say the same uninformed crap: that its on the verge of death, yada yada. Whatever buddy lol

    With the PS3 you have, no issues? no custom modifications? Only thing modified is that it's running CFW, correct?

    If that's the case, i say 150.

    If you install like a 500GB HDD then you could get it gone for maybe 200. 1TB HDD could go for 300-500 easily on eBay.

    Thermal paste was changed to some high quality stuff, it has the better fan with more blades, and the more efficient power supply. It has been running like a clock for 2 years almost. Never had any issues, no graphics bugs, or random shutdowns, or lag. Played all sorts on it a lot, like Last of Us or GTA5 or MGS4. Also the HDD is 1terabyte.

    I only asked for suggestions because if I actually listed it on ebay for $400 I'd be screwed if someone actually bought it, and I believe someone would. A lot of 60gb PS3s opened have been sold for high. There is still a market for them, especially CFW PS3s. That other member can say they are the "Worst" all he wants, but thats only the case when it kicks the bucket. While its alive and well it is superior to what any other fat or Slim or Super Slim non-CFW PS3 could ever do.

    YES! HOWEVER! If it has been taken care of & thermal paste replaced, guts of ps3 cleaned, and Bluray works fine, etc... It should go for a lot. CECHA01 is like one of the newest PS3 ever to come out.

    Like an old Corvette - Redone completely, original body, but a big-badass motor, the price will be high, and everyone would want it. THIS goes about the same feelings of that Corvette, onto the PS3.

    Why are some mods on here mods? A bit bad when a ps3 hax site has mods that have no clue about the actual console the site is about.

    Op if you think you will fetch $500 for a ps3 is just utter retarded. No you will fetch about 150 at the most. No one cares for the model. Why on earth would a person pay 500 for a ps3 when they could get a ps4?

    Put it up at that price and watch it have 0 bids or offers even after a week.
