no, if you give up your ps3 you will be left with only a phone when you could have both. You will feel happy about it for about a week, but you will soon realize that while your phone is new, it isn't that much better than what you currently have.

I have both and it is not worth it. Yes the Atrix is a nice phone. However, when it comes to phones, there is always something better coming. The ps3 will be the the top system for a few more years.

I also own both and would say its not worth the trade. The Atrix is an awesome phone but a ps3 way more awesome!

What kind of phone do you currently own?
If you want an Atrix that bad, in 2months time it will be way cheaper

Why don't you just sell the iPhone4 before the iPhone5 comes out so you can maximize your returns. You have a mytouch4g and incredible which if you're not using, you can sell, lol. But I think the iPhone4 would get you more money if it's close to mint condition. Take that money and buy the Atrix off contract and any money left over go get accessories for it.

I won't not trade for it. Just bought an Atrix 4g from amazonwireless.com for $99. Over time the phone will loose value but the PS3 still holds it's own.

Are you insane? No seriously, are you? lol

All joking aside I'm pretty sure the Atrix is nice and all but there is no way in HE...uh, the world....I would trade my PS3 for an Atrix.

If the PS3 is getting boring for you....go grab Little Big Planet 1 and 2. If you already got one or both games, I dont know what to say about it being boring.

*even if you are a hardcore gamer, do not sleep on Little Big Planet...

I have a PS3, 360 and Wii. At some point I havent played with any of them for months. Then one day I just feel like playing probably all 3 over the next months. Then the cycle continues.

Out of all 3 systems I would trade my Wii before I gave up the other 2. Look at the post above. Guy got an Atrix for $99.

Are you trying to get an Atrix with no contract? How old is your PS3? It might not be a bad trade depending on some other things. But I personally wouldnt do it, and I got the old fat model PS3.

Everyone here is kinda dumb, sorry. Atrix is $500-$600, ps3 slim is $300. It is a good trade, you can always sell the phone and buy the ps3 again easily. I dont understand why you wouldnt do that...

The market value of the Atrix is $600 right now :P What you bought is for the contract price which is NOT the value of the phone. With tax, I paid over $700 for the phone.

The reason it is a bad idea is because the Atrix will drasticly drop in value, as phones do, im a few months. While the ps3 is getting exclusive rights for some and first rights to many games coming out.

Do it, then go outside and do something healthy. Getting rid of the video game system will give you the push to get outdoors. Whats the sense of having a cell phone and one with gps etc, if you are just going to be sitting at home anyways. 2c

Trade in the PS3 but keep the money, next gen systems predicted for 2012...
Well at least Nintendo...
And they HAVE to push out a console better then PS3 for cheaper or they will lose the next gen war BADLY!
You know what... Wait until E3 before you do anything.

It hurts just reading this thread. No true gamer would ever contemplate trading away their console for a smartphone. What about downloaded content? All the media you've acquired? Sweat and tears you've shed going for accomplishments?

I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 and would never part with it for even a tablet talk less of a smartphone.

An Alienware M11x yes but not a smartphone.

Those shows kill my brain cells I actually feel dumber after watching 5 minutes of anything like that.

See the only thing you can use against me is my addiction to Android...but you'd be calling yourself out too

You know what... Wait until E3 before you do anything.

You really think so? Nintendo has always been on top for sales, software and hardware with a gaming system with the most oudated tech out of the three. Why else do you think Micro$oft and Crony have come up with similar "casual" gaming styles? (The Kinect and PS3 Move) Perhaps for a share or domination of the casual niche market which at times, past up to current, has surpassed "hardcore" gamers in terms of releasing new IPs and catering to?

Mobile/PC platforms haven't helped either with an influx of these "casual" games. I'm not saying I don't play casual games but game devs, the major ones I.E EA, Capcom, THQ, all have been looking at making games in similar vein to the "casual" market so they can bleed us dry even more. Similar to add-ons, in game content/items, they are looking to add more revenue by trying to implement more "markets" within the game itself.

Don't get me wrong though I have all three as well but my Wii has the most dust b.c of the lack of non-kiddie games. I'm not arguing your point just asking if you really think this to be true?

I digress, sorry. I'm a bit of a game nerd and techie.

To the OP, I say do what you feel would work out best. Honestly, you could always try it out for a week or two and resell it close to the price that it was valued at when you made the trade. PS3's can be found cheap if looking hard enough unless your picky.

You're accomplishments and downloadable content are tied to your online account, that point is moot.

Media, like from the games? Then yes would lose that too, along with losing all your saves.

If you care so much about that stuff then take out the hard drive and say that your cat destroyed it.

??? Did you traded the ps3 for the Atrix? and now you want to trade the Atrix for the iphone4?

What the heck happened to your phone list? I swore I remembered reading that you listed iPhone4, mytouch4g and incredible? You have devices listed as nothing now. I'm confused :/

He was probably listing it like a dream list.

But i think you'd be better off with the Atrix, assuming you got the laptop dock and all the other accessories in the bargain.

This is the dumbest thread I have ever read...

Why would you get rid of all of your phones so now you are phone-less. Also, why are you constantly trying to trade things, and then consulting others on whether or not to make the trade. Be happy with what you have, and move on with your life.

Because he is smart. Why keep 3 phones when you only need 1. Thats just a waste of money when you can just switchout when you get bored and break even (or make money in my case). If he knows what he is doing then hes having fun while making a profit so let him do what he wants.

But it's kind of silly for him to sell ALL of his phones O.o. I mean, you'd usually keep one until your new one comes in and then sell the old one. Tevine, you're not using any phones right now? :/ You still haven't answered my question if you have the Atrix and co right now? I thought you were bored with iOS so why would you want an iphone4?

Keep your ps3, they are still one of the very top BlueRay dvd players on the market. If you had the 2nd or 3rd gen PS3 vs the newer slim version then you'd have a worthy PS3 on the trade-in/sell market, they play the older ps2 dvds and are highly sought-after, the slims do not.

Wish you the best.

here's what I would do in that situation (in a perfect world where everything went my way of course)

Find another person willing to trade Atrix for PS3
+Trade PS3 to First person and get atrix
+Sell atrix at market price
+Buy New PS3
+Trade New PS3 for a different Atrix
+Profit $300 + have new Atrix
+Use $300 to buy new PS3
= Free Atrix + NEW PS3

haha of course that is not very likely to happen. I have not had my atrix long enough to decide (upgraded earlier today), but i think it would be a good trade if you really want the phone and are not using the PS3. The market value for both is roughly the same, so it all depends which one you want. If you decide that it was a bad decision, you could always resell the phone and buy another PS3, it wouldnt be the end of the world

Depending on what 9 games you have?

I am a game trader and PS3 slim for me worth around $120~150 or less in real money (that's why I got 3 x PS3, new Xbox 360 slim and all the portables including recent 3DS).

The real money could be from the game. If you have 9 AAA titles, which mean it can worth up to $300 credits, which is not a deal for Atrix trade.

But if those 9 games are out dated titles (anything before summer 2010), I'd say go for it. Price for PS3 is also getting cheaper. When it goes on sale (last Christmas), I saw it as low as $250 + 2 AAA titles which essentially = $200 (if you trade the game in)


nvm, op is trading for iPhone now? lol.
