Sources seem to be pointing towards higher trade in levels of PlayStation 3’s since the PSN outage than prior to the incident.
It’s coming up to the ridiculous milestone of a month since PSN was turned off by Sony after hackers breached the services security and began to steal data; unfortunately for Sony it seems that the outage is have severe consequences when it comes to consoles being traded in.
According to sources that have spoken to EDGE the first week of the outage didn’t affect trade-in levels with customers still thinking the service would quickly resume “However from the second week onwards we have seen an increase of over 200 per cent on PS3 consoles being traded in”
Interestingly the same source went on to say that the trade-in’s were “split almost 50/50 between those trading for cash and those taking a 360 instead.” Also not surprisingly there has been a major slump in PSN Card sales over the past few weeks.
