If you're trusting of used systems and 320GB just isn't enough for you, then GameStop may have the answer.
A reader has turned us onto a darn cool idea, courtesy of the world's largest dedicated gaming retailer. GameStop has teamed up with Recharged (the service the retailer uses for most refurbishing) to offer the following deal : a used PS3 with a massive 500GB hard drive, bundled together with a media hub (which increases the number of USB slots from 2 to 4), an HDMI cable, and a charging base that can power up two Dual Shock 3 controllers at once. Heck, they're even tossing in a special Supercharged console skin and a one-year warranty. You can get it all for only $399.99 and that's a darn good deal in our eyes. For the record, we're of the opinion that all PS3s should come with an HDMI cable these days, but that's another subject. For now, if you need another PS3 in the house or are in the market for another console, this could be a great option.
"Refurbished" doesn't usually go over well with some people, but that included warranty helps a little, right?
