The very big downside is the requirement to go through the very medium Playstation Network. Tenders have nothing to do with the prices on the second-hand market to which the purchase of this console permanently closes the doors.
In addition, the battery is hidden in the console and its replacement is done only by the intervention of the technical service (sending the customer's expense) ...
In short, very beautiful qualities served by a policy of selling transpires suspicion.
Customer, sales channel, everyone is punished in the purchase of this product.
