Any value in a PS3 Kiosk/Demonstration mode console?

Postby TheTechDoc » Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:17 am

Hey guys, came across a ps3 slim kiosk/demo console, working fine for $60, this is actually quite a good price for a ps3 in general where I live, so I might get it regardless, but I was wondering if there is any value in a console like this? I have found videos explaining how to get in and out of demo mode etc but not much info on its worth or if there are any benefits,

the console is running demo mode on 4.81, so no CFW or anything without downgrade, but is a console like this rare and worth anything major? or no,

cheers guys!

Is it just the console itself or is it a whole kiosk/stand?

Radical Reggie is a PS fan, you could probably always sell it to him:

$60 is great, if the hardware is also good.

Like, how large is the HDD capacity, for example. If it is >= 160GB, you've got a decent deal. If it is >=250GB, you've got an excellent deal.

might grab the console for $60 then and keep it as a collectible :)

Any info on the specs, such as the HDD capacity?

That's a good value determining factor.
