It depends on some factors, mainly what model is the PlayStation 3, if you've got an older model such as the 20GB or 60GB models the console is worth significantly more than other models such as the 40GB. Also what are the games you're trying to get rid of, if some are new releases then obviously you'll get more but if a bunch of them are old titles no one really wants then you might have a problem and the condition of your console/age.

Also take into consideration a brand new PlayStation 3 can be picked up for ?269.99 from Amazon in the UK and that comes with a free game of your choice, a full 1 year warranty and is brand new.

To me right now though after browsing eBay UK quickly unless you have a rarer 20GB or 60GB console, you're asking too much, used consoles are going for under ?200 and ?200 happens to be the starting point for used 20GB consoles, although don't take my research as absolute proof, if you didn't notice I do live in North America so I'm basing everything off what I find in Internet research.

Being a 40GB significantly changes the value since it's the lowest hard drive size available with no PS2 compatibility (thus making it identical to current models in terms of features), consoles at that size go for under ?150 and looking at eBay even one with 7 games included is selling for only ?160 and that includes all the cords including HDMI and an extra controller.

So figuring about ?100 for the console, another ?7-10 for SOCOM (unless it includes the headset, then you can get ?20-30), ?50 for DJ Hero, another ?30 for Modern Warfare 2, ?50-60 for Guitar Hero 5, ?25-30 for FIFA 2010, ?15 for Shaun White and an average ?8 value for the 23 other games comes to a grand total of over ?450 so you might be able to get that. My suggestion is try selling it for ?450 on eBay or a local classifieds website or paper and see what happens, if you can get a sale great, if not you'll probably want to knock the price down at least ?50. Just stick to a private sale, trading into a game store is not going to get you that kind of money.

No matter how many games you have, you won't get ?450. I'd suggest offering it at ?300 + 15 of the games (a few good ones, then mostly old ones).

Then I'd sell the rest of the games separately on ebay, I know it seems like a hassle, but you should get AT LEAST ?10 per game = ?140, and most likely you'll get more.
