Where can I find a backwards-compatible PS3 for under $65?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I should be looking for a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X or Nintendo Switch, but hear me out.

We have a Nintendo Wii that's backwards-compatible with the Gamecube and an Xbox 360 that's backwards-compatible with the Xbox Classic. All that's left is a first-gen PS3 ('cause those are backwards-compatible with the PS2 and are fat models). The problem being, I can't find any for a reasonable price.
I refuse to pay anything over $65 for a multi-million selling console that's been discontinued. My dad bought an Xbox 360 a few years ago for $90, and it was/is still popular.
Now, about the arguments concerning "BUY A PEE (swear word that means 'butt' or 'donkey') TOO!", we have one. And a Wii. And a Dreamcast. And an Atari Jaguar. And two Sega Genesis-es. And a Sega Saturn. And a plug-n'-play Pacman. And an Atari Flashback 2. And only one AV port on the gaming TV. We have three HDMI ports and only two (the SNES Classic doesn't count) systems that use it.

There is a reason it's not $65. The ps3 still has value because it is the poor man's ps4. Sony continues to make new games on both ps4 and ps3. While people on ps4 pay for their online, ps3 players don't. Ps3 still has free online use for online games and has countless endless online games that you can play forever. Resident evil 6, Metal gear solid peace walker, SF 4, even the new blazblue is on the ps3, and every rpg game.

Unless sony decides to cut the online support for ps3 the price isn't going down.

I'm fine with YLOD, though. It's a simple fix; all you need is a hairdryer and some towels.

My plan is this:
-Get a 20/60gb PS3 Fat.
-If it's YLOD, grab the hairdryer and a few towels and follow the instructions.
-SUPRA GOT THEM ALL
-NOW SUPRA CAN TRANSFORM INTO SUPRA SUPRA

What! But that counts. Because like the NES Classic, it has a HDMI port.
PS: Its PS2 not PEE TWO.

1. What, you don't always unplug your plugnplay nostalgia boxes from their sockets?

2. I know.
You're not the only one who uses humor in your posts. Saying "PS2" as "PEE *** TOO" is just funny.
