After countless attempts to fix your faulty console, you finally decided that the best approach is to sell your PS4 for parts. Now, there are probably many questions that came to your mind after taking such a decision:
- Can I sell my PS4 for parts?
- Where can I sell broken PS4 consoles?
- Does GameStop buy broken PS4 consoles?
- How much can you get for a broken PS4 at a pawn shop?
In this guide, we’ll try to answer all the questions listed above in order to offer you as much information as possible about selling your PS4.
Can I sell my PS4 for parts?
The answer to the first question is ‘Yes’. You can sell your broken PS4 for parts. Although you won’t get a fortune, you can use that money to buy a new console.
Where can I sell broken PS4 consoles?
You can sell broken PS4 consoles to GameStop. They’ll fix your console and sell it at a higher price for profit. However, keep in mind they don’t accept all the broken console that users bring to their shops. It all depends on how broken your console is.
There is a Reddit threat that offers more information about this topic. Here are some cases where they won’t take your PS4:
- The casing is cracked or there are some pieces missing.
- Your PS4 won’t turn on. But maybe this guide can help you fix the problem.
- Your PS4 overheats and runs the risk of catching fire.
- The serial number is worn off.
- There are foreign objects inside your console (bugs, toothpicks, chewing gum, you name it).
On the other hand, if GameStop’s engineers are sure they can fix your broken PS4, they’ll take it. For example, if your PS4 won’t read discs, they’ll take it and have their engineers repair it. You can also trade in the parts, if they won’t take the console. You can sell your controller, the games that you won’t play anymore, cables, and so on.
If you decided to sell your PS4 to GameStop, be straight with them. Tell them what doesn’t work and offer them as many details as possible about the respective issues.
How much does GameStop pay for a broken PS4?
As far as the money is concerned, again, it depend on how broken your console is. However, you should get between $75 and $100. You’ll get a clear answer when you take it to the shop and have it evaluated.
How much can you get for a broken PS4 at a pawn shop?
Pawn shops won’t take your broken pS4 because they don’t have the means to repair it. Who wants to buy a broken console anyway?
However, if you want to sell a functional PS4, expect to get around $150.00 to $200.00. Of course, you’ll get more if you bring in your brand new console.
There you go, you now know where you can sell your PS4 if it’s not working properly or you simply want to get rid of it. Remember, if your broken PS4 is still under warranty, give it another chance and take it to Sony to have it fixed.
