Default best time to sell a PS3?

i have a PS3 thats still 8 months into its warranty and was wondering if anyone could tell me the best time to sell it. what i mean is that are there any awaited games coming out soon that might raise the sales on ebay like GTA4 did a little.

Christmas is always a boom time for on-line console sales at... "That on-line auction site".

Competitive prices, and talking it up work a treat, maybe worth picking up a discount copy of resistance 2 after its release and bundling it, add on your expenses.

Make sure you confirm with a courier how long it'll take for postage, then post at least that far in front of Christmas, with something in the description along the lines of "Will deliver in time for Christmas". That's what I'd do.

yep, right before, or after, the holidays is peak. if someone didn't get that game system for that holiday, they may try very hard to get it online.

Makes a good point I hadn't thought of. Yea, well its whether you wanna sell it sooner or later then, but around the festive period seems like a good idea.

Little Big planet will be a big release I think in October time, and then you've got some just coming after christmas.
Personally, I'd say christmas time too.
