Japan: Stores Pay More for Old PLAYSTATION 3s

According to Japanese gaming blog, My Game News Flash, a year ago, 20GB PS3s were being bought back at ¥15,000 (US $145) for 20GB and ¥20,000 ($194) for 60GB.

Now that Sony has let go of the backwards compatibility, the two launch systems are getting more valuable. Now stores are buying back used consoles the 20GB for ¥40,100 ($388) and the 60GB for ¥46,000 ($446). That means they are going to turn that around into possibly a $600-$700 sale. Only in Japan people.
