In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala keep you steadfast upon the Deen. We commend you for turning away from that which will not be of true benefit to you.

Aside from playing impermissible games, there are many other uses of a Playstation that are permissible. Likewise, there are a few games that are not impermissible. Accordingly, you may sell your Playstation. The proceeds therefrom will be permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
