    Hi guys,

    I'm getting away my development console PS3 Reference Tool DECR1000A with data. Console was obtained from game studio with data inside (seller did not format hard drives)

    Why the hell I am selling this? Well reason is that I'm moving to the States and it must go away.

    I would like to share a e-bay link with live auction. If somebody will buy this it will help me a lot. I am able to share details but I dont want to sell or give data from this devkit alone.

    Console was rarely used, I have been developing my own stuff on this, porting a few titles as excercise and getting to know PS3 architecture as well. I have removed my own stuff from time-window 2016-2018 it wasnt interested, but anything else on the drives was untouched.

    I am also willing to share any details about this reference tool, photos, logs etc... but not a data. That's something what I am moving with a whole console to the new owner.

    e-bay auction: https://www.ebay.com/itm/143052945721

    So thats my Hello to the community :) I also have a Xbox 360 XDK Gray devkit but for now i do not intend to sell that one. But also willing to share any details, specific to the community. Not problem at all... I hope that PS3 Reference tool will find a nice and cool owner!

    Your hello to the community is asking people to buy your stuff? The first post in 5 years of joining.....

    I would say the community is low on your list of priorities.

    Anyway....

    1, sales threads go in the sales forum.
    2, no sales threads for people under 50 posts.
    3, ebay sales belong in the ebay thread anyway.

    Good job.

    Indeed he violates a bunch of forum rules, he only has one post which he uses to advertise his eBay sale. Not to mention his DECR is very much overpriced.

    1st post, breaking various forum rules...check.

    Having 2 (two) feedback on ebay...check

    Choosing xmas to start such an ebay auction...check.

    You are also selling a steam account, which is clearly against the terms of services by Steam...and usually ends up into a permanent account ban...considering you can even get the account back, after selling it...

    p.s
    Im not a grammar nazi and english isnt everyones 1st language, but considering you are moving to the states...feel free to at least spell check your item description, especially when its "rare" and you want to reach for a bigger audience.

    One of the worst "hellos" Ive read here in a long time. Sorry.

    ......What they said.

    $900 is obscene for one of those, you'll be one of those people sitting on their listing for years.

    The builds on the system, while high in quantity are not as desirable as you may think.

    That's just the starting bid. Buy it now is 3500.

    Not trying to argue for him but these machines were 10k back at launch. The average price right now is 200-400 depending on condition/contents/completeness of set
    The older/newer in box the more valuable (new in box should run 0.85 or so)

    That means precisely nothing. Cars cost a lot new, they also immediately lose value when you drive it away.

    Let me try that again then
    The listing is overpriced and dumb despite what's on the system. If it was new in box, I would be more okay with that BIN price because that's the only way one would be able to justify it.

    I was being extremely generous with my reply, basically ignoring the BIN price. Trying to be a nice guy and all :p

    That's not always the case, I had mine new in box back in the day and it was on 1.60 or so.
