looks a good price but if my ps3 were to give up the ghost i'd be fighting for a replacement or free repair, not shelling out again.
#3
this is a good price is it not?
#4
Im sure they was on sale at Macro for £150?? Ive also got YLOD but is only £50 for repair
#5
£199 Amazon
£199 Play.com (Possible quidco)
#6
I prefer SAFE online gaming (_;)
#7
Been this price for a while....and is already on here.
£236 with a game worth £23 trade in at cex looks better value though.

If you do a quick YouTube search you can repair the YLOD easily. I did mine, took about 2 hours.

Pretty average price.
#12
Not voting either way but doesn't it seem that in 2011 we should be paying a lot less for old tech by now? this isn't a bad price going on average PS3 prices but the console should be sub £150 this late into its gen.
#13
This is not worth it! They do the 320gb with socom special forces which you can sell for around £20 for £232! Why not pay the extra tenner and get a 320gb which is worth way more?
#14
It's about standard for the 160gb model. I paid £190 for mine 8 months ago. I bought my nephew the 320gb in March with B L Planet 2 for £249. Thanks for posting though - always helpful.

Good deal and watching the Playstation conference at E3 last night I can tell you with the amazing exclusive games coming to the PS3 in the next 12 months if you don't own one you really should snap one of these up.

The PS3 might be coming up to it's 5th birthday now but Sony have promised it will have at least a 10 year life span and developers still seem to be getting more out of the console as time goes by where as the 360 seems to have reached it's limit. The Uncharted 3 footage at E3 was quite simply jaw dropping and really showed that in the right hands the PS3 can easilly exceed anything the 360 can do.

And let's not forget you also get a great Blu-Ray player and one of the best media players around. For less than £200 quid I think that's pretty damn impressive.

Damn skippy, I had a 360 and sold it looking to pick up a PS3 now mostly as a media streamer and 3D blu ray player!

Im too heavy handed I think to repair it myself. You got the link by anychance? Any problems with your one since?

I think they're still making a loss on PS3 hardware so it couldn' t be any cheaper.

I think it was a five video step procedure with a downloadable PDF file too. The guy calls himself 'gilsky1' and no probs with mine since, it even sorted out my wireless conection which fizzled out about 6 months before the YLOD.

Good luck

Utter bs, I bought into the PS3 hype and had a PS3 along side an Xbox 360, there is no comparison the Xbox 360 is so much better for games. The PS3 has to have extremely low resolution, low quality textures and missing shadows lighting etc to be able to run the same games as the Xbox 360. Even with lower resolution and missing graphics the PS3 versions still run slower (less fps) than the Xbox 360 counterparts.

Uncharted is one of the most overated games imo, boring repetitive gameplay, graphics are nothing special.

You would be better off spending £200 on a graphics card for the PC to experience true High def gaming, or if you want an console grab a 250GB Xbox 360 Slim £150 and a BluRay player for around £50, a Xbox 360 does a better job of running games and a dedicated BluRay player will be better for movies.

This is the most fanboy comment I have ever heard.

You do realise it's all about the architecure of the PS3? It's not as straight forward as the xbox 360.

All PS3 exclusives benefit from being built from the ground up on the PS3 therefore taking full advantage of the CELL processor (which is the main graphics processor on the PS3).

The multiplatform titles don't use the CELL for graphics processing and instead use it for traditional processing with the GPU doing all the usual stuff (and everyone knows the PS3's GPU is inferior to the 360's)

So of course every multiplatform title will look better on the 360, developers aren't going to put in the time and effort to build a game in a completely different way just to suit PS3 users, so instead they normally develop it on PS3 (bearing in mind its weaker GPU) but using an architecture they know will work on a straight forward gaming system (xbox 360).

theres plenty of info about this online and it's there for everyone to see, the PS3 has some of the best looking console games of this generation and surprise surprise they are all PS3 exclusives built with CELL in mind (Uncharted 2, God of war, Killzone 2 & 3, heavy rain).

So the outcome of this story is Hell yes! multiplatform games look much better on a 360 (I now i have RDR & Ghosbusters on my 360 cause they look and perform much better).

But when it comes to exclusives we all know what the PS3 and 360 are capable of at their best.

Sorry Hanktank it's you who is talking bs my friend.

The fact that the games you have mentioned run ever so slightly better on the 360 (and trust me unless you were running both consoles versions side by side and looking very hard you'd not notice any difference), is down to the fact the 360 was the lead platform and the game was ported over to the PS3. It's actually a tribute to the PS3 that almost all multi platform games where the 360 is the lead platform now look and play as good on the PS3 as they do on 360 considering that developers rarely use all 7 cores of the PS3's cell processor when porting. If you're trying to imply that the 360's actual hardware beats the PS3's then i'm afraid you're wrong as by any measurement the PS3's specs are superior and in the case of the cpu by some way. You also ignore the fact where the PS3 is the lead platform as in the case of Rockstar's latest blockbuster LA Noire then the it's the 360 version that looks inferior and a couple of other examples off the top of my head are Vanquish and Darksiders.

Of course if you want to see the best of the PS3 then you will see it in it's exclusive titles with the likes of Killzone 2 and 3, Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns Of The Patriots, Heavy Rain, God Of War 3 and Uncharted 1 and especially 2 being some of the best looking games of this generation. Incredibly Uncharted 3 looks even better than it's predecessor which was an amazing game even if you didn't like it which is why it's one of the highest rated games of all time. When it comes to exclusives Sony is a million miles ahead of Microsoft and don't see how even you could argue against that.

Throw in a built in excellent blu-ray player, free online play with PSN which includes bbc iplayer, itv and 4od catch up, LoveFilm, optimised youtube support, a free web browser and great multi media playback all for under £200 and you've got a winning deal in my opinion.

The fact that the games you have mentioned run ever so slightly better on the 360 (and trust me unless you were running both consoles versions side by side and looking very hard you'd not notice any difference)


The difference in the games is night and day. If you have played PS3 and Xbox 360 mulitformat games and can't see that than you need glasses.

I had a PS3 and Xbox 360, the Xbox 360 was so superior in games that my PS3 was just used as a media player fror MKV's etc. As soon as I got a Cyclone Primus Media player, I sold the PS3 (could of kept it but was collecting dust) I had no use for it, the Primus is far superior for media than the PS3 and only cost £40..

You mentioned hardware and say the PS3 is superior, I don't see how you can argue this, the PS3 has less memory and has to share it so the GPU is starved of ram, (this is why lower res, missing shadows, and fetaures to get it to run on PS3)

Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 are very outdated now, but the PS3 is really lagging becausce of its crippling low amount of ram, and poor to code for CPU. What use is a CPU that is supposed to be great if nobody can code properly for it. I notice fanboys use this, saying that the PS3 has untapped power this is simply untrue again the PS3 is totally pushed even with game like L.A Noire where playing it causes your PS3 to shutdown. Sony will release a new console late2012/early 2013 becausce they know there hardware is seriously handicapped.

I don't even see the BluRay drive as a good feature, most big games benefit from being installed to hard-drive, to install a game on the Xbox 360 is a relativley quick process, due to the PS3 having a BluRay drive, the read speed is only x2, so installing games takes forever, you can buy a standalone BluRay player for watching movies and it will do a far better job, is cheaper and quieter than the PS3.

Anyway none of this matters, just had to reply to the PS3 fanboy comments..

The new Wii is out soon ( and looks far better graphically than both the 360 and PS3, if Sony don't release a new console for another 4 years (as mentioned earlier by fanboy) they will be left trailing behind even more...

That the PS3 is more powerful than the 360 (in the right hands) is simply a matter of fact so you can argue all you like.

And you're wrong to say there is a huge difference in the games you mentioned there have been some bad ports in the past like The Orange Box for instance but that is now largely a thing of the past. And once again you ignore examples where the PS3 has the better version like in the case of the brilliant LA Noire.

Also as Megacamz said PS3 exclusive titles are far superior graphically to anything on the 360 and one of the reasons why, which touches on another completely incorrect point you make, is blu-ray. Naughty Dog developers of Uncharted stated it would have been impossible to reproduce the game on the 360 with one of the key reasons being the lack of ability to stream textures of the huge blu-ray disc. God Of War 3 also relied heavily on streaming textures from blu-ray almost completely filling up a single disc. Blu-ray is one of the key advantages of the PS3 and not just because it's great for movies - it's also a massive advantage from a gaming perspective as LA Noire demonstrates with the 360 version coming on multiple dvd's. Games developers actually cite the 360's reliance on a last gen storage disc as the single biggest factor holding games back ( http://gamer.blorge.com/2008/09/16/xbox-360-holding-back-ps3-and-pc-games/ ). As you say disc installs is an option but not all 360's have a hard drive and even a 250 gig hd would soon start filling up with games the size of God Of War 3.

As for Ram it's nowhere near as simplistic a comparison as you make out. The PS3 has the same amount of Ram in total as the 360 but it's split between system and video ram.

The text below explains it better than i can.

There has been a lot of talk about the Playstation 3’s Random Access Memory (RAM) vs Xbox 360’s RAM, saying that the 360 has more RAM to work with etc. Here’s an article to explain the situation of its RAM.

Just so you know that the PS3 has 512MB of RAM (256 for video and 256 for system). The Cell chip has 256MB of completely sharable RAM, the GPU has 256MB of dedicated RAM. Now the key here is what type of RAM it is.

The Playstation 3 has 256mb of GDDR3 at 700mhz and 256Mb of XDR at 3.2ghz. So what exactly is XDR ram? Here are some of the highlights:

XDR makes PS3 super effiecient
XDR aids in faster cache mapping, both direct and indirect
XDR ram works by a pointer to pointer technology and needs very small buswidth for execution
XDR is not just faster than GDDR3 but it is much more efficient
XDR RAM works by breaking down data into several packets which prevents data loss and exceptions

The Rambus XDR™ memory architecture is a total memory system solution that achieves an order of magnitude higher performance than today’s standard memories while utilizing the fewest ICs. Perfect for computer and consumer electronics applications

The PS3 has two times as much cache at 2x the speed, making it way faster for direct/indirect mapping. Not only that but it has 512k of L1 cache + 1.7m of L2 cache for the 7 spes. The PS3’s GPU, RSX was made to work with the Cell processor, it is not some GPU they took and slotted in. It is made to be compatible with the Cell.

More RAM does not mean a faster system it means more data can be stored in a fast access area. Games don’t always need 512mb of RAM.

The RSX can freely use as much of the 512MB total RAM that the PS3 has because the Cell doesn’t need much RAM because its fast enough. And the fact that the PS3 has XDR means that it has faster access to data files.

A lot of people are saying that the RSX only has 256mb of RAM, whereas the 360’s GPU has 512MB of RAM. To make it sound a bit simpler, here’s the real deal. The PS3 has it’s RAM in two separate parts, 256MB for the RSX and 256MB that can be used be either the Cell or RSX.

GTAIV and LA Noire and NFS Shift 2 all look better on the PS3. So even on multi-format games, the PS3 can be better if it has been programmed for correctly. The Blu-ray player on the PS3 is possibly the best out there so it is a valuable feature. Xbox 360 is great and I have many games for it, but it doesn't have anything like the Uncharted or God of War games. Best to have both consoles if you can afford it.

Hmm GTA IV is better on PS3? Um you know it runs at 20% lower resolution than the Xbox 360? The Xbox 360 version runs at 720P 'HD' the PS3 version runs at 640p and is upscaled, yet the PS3 version despite being 'SD' upscaled it still runs at lower fps. If your gonna pick a game to compare don't pick a Rockstar game becausce they all run better have higher resolution on the Xbox 360.

PS3 GTA iV runs at 640p (less than HD) and with no anti aliasing (uses blurring. Yuk)

Xbox 360 GTA iV runs at 720P (Proper HD) and has 2 x anti aliasing

The PS3 version still runs slower lol. You still think GTA iV is better on the PS3? Im sure you will convince yourself it is, this is the way of the PS3 fanboy :/ ..

http://www.ripten.com/2008/04/29/confirmed-gta-iv-ps3-is-not-630pits-640p/

I had both consoles, PS3 was s**t I felt cheated by all the hype, Xbox 360 so much better, will probably get replaced by the Wii U soon though, would much rather play console games in proper 1080P on the Wii U than what the current consoles can do. But right now comparing the 2, the Xbox 360 is miles ahead..

Cue more PS3 fanboy comments..

GTA IV looks better on the PS3. Its a fact. You can try to bore me with your HD statistics, but none of that matters when your eyes tell you different. Even Gamespot preferred it on the PS3 so why don't you send them an e-mail telling them they're fanboys lol. LA Noire looks better on the PS3 as well.

Hmm yeah its a fact it looks better to you, I love that in the face of real facts i.e the fact its not even HD on the PS3 the fact it runs at lower fps despite being toned down graphically, you still convince yourself that it looks better on the PS3, total fanboism at its best. PS3 fanboys are the worst kind, they idolise there console almost worship it, and have to think of it as superior to everything else, really strange...

"Multi console ports struggle on PS3

We've been reading the reviews for the past several months. Almost every multi-console game on the market looks and plays the better on the Xbox 360. There are some very high profile examples of this fact. Just look at the record selling Madden franchise. The 2008 version of the game runs at a blazingly fast 60fps on the Xbox 360. Meanwhile the same game struggles to maintain a constant 30fps frame rate on the PS3. And Madden 08 isn't the only game that suffers on the PS3. High profile releases such as The Orange Box, Tony Hawks Project 8, and Need for Speed have all had major problems on the PS3.
PS3 Ports: Leaving out the "Little Details"




Above you'll see a few screen shots that illustrate some of the differences between Xbox 360 originals and PS3 ports. Almost every single time the game looks better on the Xbox 360. And as you can see in the pictures above, PS3 versions of the same game lack details found in the Xbox 360 original. "

"PS3 Version Caused the Delay of GTAIV

When GTAIV was officially delayed into 2008, the gamers everywhere cried bitter tears. It has been said that Sony has a contract with Rockstar that demands that both versions of GTAIV must be released at the same time. Many believe this is the real truth behind the GTAIV delay. This also means that PS3 development caused the GTAIV delay. (And since we know PS3 isn't easy to work with....)"

The Xbox 360's lack of a guaranteed hard disk is creating limitations in Grand Theft Auto IV's development, Rockstar has acknowledged.

During an interview with our partners in crime at Official PlayStation Magazine, Rockstar's creative vice president Dan Houser was asked: "On PS3 you've got a guarantee that every machine is going to have a hard-drive and, with Blu-ray, you've got plenty of storage, whereas on Xbox 360 there's no guarantee of a hard-drive and you're working with the DVD format. Does that create limitations?" To which he replied, "Yep."

He continued, "To be honest with you we haven't solved all those riddles yet." The difficulties aren't limited to working on Microsoft's box, as Houser explains that "both have enormous challenges" and that "both have their own particular pleasures and pains".

For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch.
