Should you trade in your PS3?

Right then, you've got all of the information now, so is it actually worth trading in your PS3?

If, however, your PS3 has become little more than a fancy table decoration, then maybe you should get rid of it. It's up to you, of course, but sometimes it's good to declutter.
