Playstation 4 System Black - (GameStop Premium Refurbished)
UNDERSTAND THE VALUE
This console is great... Especially used (looks gently used). The reason I got a used system is because you get a 2 YEAR WARRANTY VS A ONE YEAR SONY WARRANTY. It's a smart move to get a used because If something is wrong in the next 2 YEARS you can go replace it for another one at a GameStop, instead of. Sending it to sony. And waiting for It for who knows how long. This system is great and is very well worth it
I agree that this Price Sucks
For $20 more you could get a brand new Playstation 4 with a Sony Warranty and less risk (from getting a defective used system.) Also, Gamestop recently got brand new Playstation 4s in stock and are available online without bundling. (I speculate that earlier, Gamestop was purposefully hiding Playstation 4s and forcing you to buy bundles - now, you can buy it by itself.) This used PS4 is, in general, another example of how Gamestop doesn't know how to fairly price used products. Just like new games, which are $60, gamestop prices the used copy for $55. Meanwhile, they give you around $20 IN STORE CREDIT. Do the buyer and seller a favor and never trade games into gamestop - just sell them on ebay so that the buyer will get a lower price than gamestop used prices, and the seller will be paid more than gamestop's filthy in store credit values - a win-win!
Just Buy A New One!!!!
If you are in the Madison, Indiana or really any where in general, the best thing you can do is buy a new PS4. Why would you spend the money on a used system that someone else has already messed with when for twenty dollars more you can buy a brand new system that comes with a warranty. Not only that but keep in mind that it's a used system and gamestop is charging brand new system price for it. Please be smart and buy a new one. Don't allow Gamestop to rip you off. When you sell a used game and they only offer you twenty dollars and then turn around and resell it for forty to fifty bucks just goes to show how big of a fraud that gamestop is.
I absolutely love it. I went with the pre-owned console because it fit my budget and was basically brand new. Very slight scratches that you can't even notice. First PS4 I bought was defective, but returned it to the store near me and the manager gave me a replacement with no problems. And this one works wonderfully! I honestly recommend going with a refurbished PS4 if you cannot afford to buy a new one with a game and PlayStation Plus membership. After buying my console and BF4 and PlayStation plus 3 month membership, it was still a lot, yes. But still cheaper than buying new! This is a deal! Believe me. I tossed back and forth between PS4 and Xbox One. PS4 is more powerful and better. And I've been a huge Xbox fan since the 360 was released. After switching to PS4, I must say, I am happily never ever going back to Xbox.
A good test
I was torn between PS4 and Xbox one, being able to try out a pre-owned one and take it back within 7 days with no risk is what appealed to me.
If you aren't completely sure on if you want to get it, i recommend buying pre-owned, especially when $400 is not chump change (well for most of us). It helped someone like me who gets buyers remorse if I am not 100% happy with a product
Will be taking it back and paying the extra $20 for my brand new one today :)
not even worth buying a refurbished ps4. for 20 dollars extra, i get a brand new one. its a no brainer guys.
PS4 THE BEST CONSOLE OUT
I bought my PS4 from gamestop the service was great. I cant believe how awesome the ps4 is I would recommend any ps3 owner to upgrade to ps4. Best console for the money.
Great, as if it was new. but...
It's great. You wouldn't see the difference between a pre-owned and a new one. The only problem is that you would have to delete the previous users. trust me, I know how it feels when you buy a PS4 and find names that aren't yours. you don't get happy. But delete them and it's all good.
Pretty good overall
So I bought the pre-owned version of this simply cause it was a money saver. And its overall performance is great however the only issue I see at the moment is how some controllers can't seem to handle headsets in order to use em. Despite this one drawback soo far it doesn't seem to really take away the fun I have on this machine.
Too expensive for used
The used one costs too much. $20 is not a good enough discount for this to be a good deal. The PS4 is an incredible piece of hardware, but your used prices are terrible.
