Got my PS3 repaired. Thanks for the connect ! :)
Glad to hear that mate. Congrats!!!

Looking for one as well in Pune. My Xbox 360 conked off and now looking only for a used 360 console.
Hope it is not too late. Got a number through a friend @Vagabond

9860179151 - Mohsin - Camp Area

In Mumbai

I want a console which can play games from external HDD and those ***** games
All those consoles you mentioned earlier can play games from HDD. If you are talking about a game console which is modded then PS3, 360 and PS4 are your options of which only specific versions are hackable.
360 being the easiest hackable device that can be found followed by PS3 and then PS4

the used PS3 and Xbox prices just like the new ones when released.

I have seen prices in USA and Europe for used items are very cheap.. In india people are very very greedy and ask for too much for used stuff

a used ps3 should not cost more than 7 -8 k with two controller and some games, but people are asking like 15 - 17 k

anyway anyone planning to sale any old console contact me

It's due to low adoption of consoles in India, don't pay more than 7-8k in used PS3/xbox360. In Bangalore you might get it is this price range

Wow thanks.. Yes I contacted many people on OLX and some local seller.. they are asking from 12 k to 16 k for a PS3 ...

What a joke.. even in its last phase of life original official box was selling for 12 thousand.

How about PS4 what is good price in current time.. considering PS5 is almost fee months away..

What you guys say.. should I go for PS4 or PS 3
Thanks

Am in a similar situation as well. looking for deals on XBOX 360 as they could be Jtaged. I have everything required - 2 controllers,the kinet, power brick BUT dont have the console itself :p:p:p:p.

And all the used ones are being asked for around 15k which is ridiculous. Can someone point towards a good deal in Bangalore.
