    FYI: There is a Xbox 360 version in case you want to for that but since you are in the PS3 section, I'll give you PS3 advice. (PS Fan anyway!)

    So, you have multiple options for a cheap PS3
    • eBay - snipe one for cheap
    • craigslist - this is a good way to find one on the cheap (plus negotiating)
    • local Pawn shops - when people need money, electronics are the first to go (they have a wide selection and they negotiate!)
    So check these in your area and I'm sure you can find something!

    I've had the best luck with Cowboom, personally, although if you've got a spare 2.5" SATA HDD you might be able to find a cheap PS3 on eBay missing the HDD and combine the two.

    There's a guy on another forum selling a PS3 with a disc drive not reading discs for $100 shipped. (Downgradeable one BTW.)

    These days you only get Super Slims in stores, I wouldn't "Shoplift" that even if I got paid for it. :tpi:
