Used 60Gb PS3s selling for more than new 80Gb in UK

By Mike, Monday, 18 August 2008 19:27 GMT

UK retailer GAME is selling a handful of used 60Gb Playstation3s for the princely sum of £349.99 and upwards.

This is £50 more than the new 80Gb model which is heavily rumoured to be hitting UK shores this Friday.

In fact, 60Gb models have been selling for around £400 on Amazon, which, combined with GAME’s high pricing, could mean that backwards compatibility is something people want and are willing to pay extra for.

Just a hunch.
