I would do it now. There will be no crazy demand for PS3. I have both the PS3 and the Wii. The PS3 kinda sucks, especially when compared to Xbox 360. In other words, people realize PS3 is a dog and there is still high demand for the Wii, so the longer it is out there on eBay, the more likely you will actually sell it.
Also, I think $475 is too much for a used counsel, especially since new PS3s are selling for only $20 more than that.
P.S. It kinda sounds like your friend screwed you by getting you to pay for his mistake.
