You can pick a 360 up second hand for about £50 now unless it's one of the limited editions, some of them are worth a few bob.

What's the original PS3 worth?

It's been plugged into TV for last few years without anyone using it so took a notion today and boxed it up. May as well flog it as its never going to be used again.
Working perfectly and got f**k all use has 2 of the official controllers and 5 games.

Best place to sell it on with least amount of hassle?

Cex be your best bet I'd imagine but you would be lucky to get 40 quid for the lot.
Edit didn't see the two controllers be more than 40 Cex is your place

The new Far Cry game is out today. Looks pretty good. 

Storyline/Main missions are supposed to be a let down but the pick up and play exploration bits are mean't to be very good.

No real surprise there. It has consistently evolved itself to online players to keep it fresh and interesting. Loved the most recent update Hotring Stock Car Racing.

They'll do very well to match half of the overall appeal and success in the next version

How is this measured?
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I brought up this exact point to my friends when talking about it earlier. RDR 2 will hopefully be a great game, but what do Rockstar do for GTA 6? How do you follow this level of success? The expectations will be through the roof

I'd imagine how all profit is measured.

revenue received -  the cost.

Really looking forward to Jurassic World Evolution, initial gameplay it looks fantastic though unless they keep it interesting with DLC or modding then it's longevity could be hampered.

That is the easy bit! I meant what do they class as an entertainment product! Surely Brian Epstein made more from his product, for example.

Football Manager 18 out on Switch.

Girlfriends across the globe just shrieked at the thought of their partners taking their Switch everywhere with them from now on.
