New vs. refurbished PlayStation
A new PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, or PlayStation VR is a fun console to enjoy, but the fun comes with a premium price. If you buy a new console, you are spending money on just the console that you could be using to buy accessories if you’d buy refurbished. You will be able to enjoy a refurbished PlayStation while saving money.
A new PlayStation is great. There’s no denying that. If you must be the first one to have touched your electronics outside of a factory setting, then you will have to purchase a new console. However, if you like the idea of saving a good chunk of change and buying used, you’ll be better off. Instead of buying a new PlayStation 3, 4, or VR, you can buy new games. That’s all you really need to buy new.
You can save money buying a refurbished console and even some accessories are okay to buy used if you really want to save some money. Think about whether you really have to have a new console, or if you can make due with a used one.
