The Best Way to Buy PS3 Games

This guide explains the best and cheapest way to purchase PlayStation 3 games.

We’ve reached a time where there are only 2 possible reasons to purchase a new video game. The first is if you absolutely have to have it the day it comes out. The second is the rare situation when you can find a new (sealed) copy of the game for the same price (or less) as a high-quality used copy. Other than that, you should always buy high-quality used games.

This list explains the best ways to get your hands on the PS3 games you need. If you need help coming up with a list of games to buy, check out our post on the Top 25 PS3 Games.

  1. If you live in the US, head over to and check out their PS3 section. This is where you will often find the lowest prices on used PlayStation 3 games.
  2. eBay If you live outside of the US (like us) start with eBay. They also often have to lowest used game prices. Make sure to purchase from a user or an online store that has good credibility (lots of satisfied customers).
    You can often find brand new, sealed games for under $25 (including shipping) from countries like Hong Kong and China.
  3. EB Games Check out your local EB Games store. They typically have a huge selection of used games and they will guarantee that they work just fine. You can also trade in the games you are bored of, for some pretty serious discounts on your next purchase.
  4. Craigslist You will often find people trying to unload a large number of games for a serious discount.
