Thanks Vice. I'm going to weigh up my options. I've had my PS3 since mid 2009 without any hassles and it has seen countless hours, I'd rather try repair it than take on a refurbished unit that could have its own problems.
@ChimeranMan partserve doesn't actually repair consoles they just give you a refurbished model. I would know all I need was a new internal battery for my ps3 clock told me I will receive a refurbished model from them if I bring it in
@TheOne I picked up a WiiU when retailers were dumping them so it was worth it for R1k. Played a few games on it, but best by far was Xenoblade 2. Only game I really put time into. After that I realised I need to hold on with the Switch
@TheOne - did you ever keep an eye out for some of the digital games available in Wii U/Switch? It's rare but sometimes the Nintendo online store has a couple titles on sale., especially older stuff that is hard to find in retail.

Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is all about playing courses anytime, anywhere.
There's lots to play right out of the box, with 100 built-in courses designed by Nintendo. Those levels have extra challenges too, such as collecting every coin or defeating every enemy before reaching the goal. Completing these extra challenges earns you medals.
Just like the Wii U version of Super Mario Maker, this game lets players freely create their own Super Mario courses. It includes every tool and course part from the Wii U version, except for the Mystery Mushroom and the linked Mario costumes.
But don't worry if you find course creation a little intimidating: Mashiko and Yamamura guide you with interactive tutorials. You will be creating with confidence in no time!
While the Wii U version was all about creating a big, global community, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is about bringing players together with nearby friends to build close-knit communities. Instead of uploading courses online, courses you make can be shared via local wireless and StreetPass.
You can also share incomplete courses via local wireless, so you can team up to create courses. These courses will be marked with a special icon to show off your collaboration.
You can go online to play selected courses made using the Wii U version. You won't be able to search by course ID, but you will be able to enjoy the 100 Mario Challenge, and Recommended Courses too. While not every course created in the Wii U version will be available, there won't be any shortage of great content.
