I would say if he plays ps2 games then yes. If not get a new slim with warranty.

he does have some ps2 games he hasnt played yet but he could always keep hold of the ps2 aswell as you dont get much for trade ins on them now.

The phat isn't "better", you need to quantify the meaning of "better".

It depends what he wants. I think he'd be fine with a 2nd hand 80GB console for about £150.
A new slim will knock him back about £240

most of the fatties dont play ps2 anyway, the slim is far better, its slimmer, quieter and not obselete

My chunky ps3 would like a word with you, "Want to play shadow of the colossus"
p.s obsolete not obselete.

You are correct , I was eating my tea and made a little faux pas. The fatty is obsolete.
