    No and to be honest homebrew/backups on the PS3 is a bit of a waste of time and money anyway. You'd be better off just waiting for a few months after each game is released when you can then get most of them for around the £10-20 mark.

    This is a fantastic deal.

    I bought the 160gb slim about 6 months ago and it's almost as noisy as my old 60gb model from day one. Does this suffer with the same
    problem (due to cheap components to reduce cost apparently)

    I have a launch model 60gb

    didn't pay 424.99 for it no i waited until it dropped to 399.99

    My original 60gb packed up within a year and got a replacement free of charge from Sony

    my 60gb is **** for watching anything as its so noisy plus it heats the room rather well

    is the 320gb a silent model?

    Mine is noisy as hell when reading discs (new slim 160gb model) appears to be the same for the 320 too..

    Damn - only ordered the 160GB one last night. Just saw this and went to see if I could cancel my order and it has been despatched.

    Oh well, probably don't need the extra HDD and can put the £20 towards a game - Mortal Kombat maybe - I'm liking the look of fighting as Freddy :P

    Well you lose online play but doesn't bother me as that's what my xbox is for and it doesn't cost money for the back ups, i have all the ps3 exclusives that i want to play, so i am more than happy with my jb ps3.

    I've had 2 conflicting comments.
    I will ask again can you jailbreak the ps3 if so is there any restrictions with firmware or model

    Got two ps3s one fat, one slim, my slim is alot quieter when watching films on blu ray even when the fan kicks in

    Amazing that people posting don't know that the slim is quieter than the old phat model. Will you next be asking whether the 4/250/320gb 360s are more reliable than the Elites and Arcades? >.>

    LOL - Knew I should have waited!

    Didn't think the 320GB would come down to this price off Amazon within 2 weeks though.

    Oh Well - sods law.

    Will be getting another once they break the £120 barrier.... Probably in another fortnight!


    You could return your console back to Amazon and get this instead, although would you utilise the extra capacity? If you're going to be a light user then I'd say you got a decent deal with the 160gb for £20 less


    Just buy a new hdd. I've replaced my old launch model as the fans were noisy as hell, with a slim and slapped a 500Gig hard drive in it. Get PlayTV and you 've got a really good tv recorder.

    FW 3.55 and below can be jailbroken, you can downgrade to fw 3.55 but only if it was that fw out of the box.

    Wow... you still have launch model mine packed in about 2 years after amazing!!


    LOL i still have my japanese model which I imported 3 months before any UK models were even advertised. its rubbish tho, its massive, only 20GB HDD and no wifi and after an update I can no longer play UK dvds or Blu Ray on it lol so this is looking a good deal to me

    Highly unlikely as the next FW update up from that was released in January 2011 so I doubt there will be any new slims knocking about with FW 3.55 installed.
