Where to Get the Most for Your PlayStation

PS5 sales could eclipse those of the PS4, as Sony anticipates selling 7.6 million units during its launch and aims to sell more than 100 million units over the console’s lifetime. That means millions of gamers will sell their old PlayStation consoles to help offset the PS5’s $399 to $499 price tag.

Many will turn to local stores like GameStop and Best Buy, but there’s no guarantee those stores will buy old PlayStations or that there’s a store within driving distance: neither GameStop nor Best Buy will buy PS3s, and GameStop has closed more than 600 locations over the past two years.

In addition, many are reticent to shop at brick and mortar stores during the pandemic, evidenced by the 14% YOY decrease in retail store foot traffic and 44.5% increase in ecommerce sales.

The good news is people have online options that not only buy most PlayStation consoles, but often pay more than local stores. One popular choice is eBay, which can repay patience with good payouts. Another is our free service, Flipsy, which offers instant and guaranteed sales.
