Cracking price

Great bargain! Compatible with move?

temptedddd. am not fussed about HD space but what are these older revision ps3 like compared to the slims

Theres hardly any difference if your not to bothered about HD .... If you were thinking of getting one ... this would be a great price to purchase one.

I will to be asking if my local has one in the morning...

Yep of course Move compatible...

And most probs PS3 Jailbreak compatible also ;-)

Fair play to Morrisons they seem to have some amazing deals around at the mo - now if only the others would take note......

is this brand new or pre owned?

Just managed to control my craving for a PS3 and this gets posted... Cheers OP... I hope you're pleased with yourself. Heheh!

Great price and you can play PS2 games as well

Brother has had both and says his Slim is very quiet compared to the fat one.

whats so hot about an old 80gig ps3?

Original Poster

there new but like my post says they are very limted stock if you can find one you got yourself a bargin!

Good price, voted hot. As far as ylod is concerned they are still susceptible, but less so than the first models. Does anyone know if it is the 80gb model with the dual shock controllers? I believe there was a version without. I traded my 80gb in at HMV last week for roughly this price, and bought a 320gb slim, as it was getting really noisy. Stage 3 on the fans after 30 mins so I couldn't cope lol it was fairly old though.

No, you can't.

HD being hard disk, rather than High Definition?

I prefer the old whale-like ones to the new slim....might get one at this price and flog mine just to get the year's guarantee (mine will be 2 in April). I reckon there won't be much in it.

Why would you do that? Come on...seriously...I need to know...

These should be the Dualshock 3 ones. My 80gb came with Dualshock 3 pad. I would get a second one probably for this price but doubt many stores have any.

how? only the 60gb versions of the ps3 as far as I know play ps2 games.

We can play PS2 games on ours too!!!! As to why, because our younger children are enjoying the older games in order to hone their gaming skills.

Your talking ****.
You can only play PS2 games on the 60GB console.



Yeh they come with the Dualshock 3 controllers over the older Sixaxis ones.



I've had a quiet Phat and a loud Phat. Same for the slim. Think a lot of it is down to the individual console/environment it is in rather than models.



Brand new mate. Morrisons don't sell pre owned items.

Good deal

Only the US 80GB model could play PS2 games, the 80GB that came here could only emulate PS1.

Can anybody else actually certify this deal? As once again, it's probably one of those one store deals that nobody can actually get, that everyone still votes hot.

If your 80gb one has 4 USB sockets on the front, then you've got a 60gb one with a bigger hard disk.
As others have said, UK 60gb could play PS2 games and the others couldn't.

Will be very lucky to still find any of these PS3's in Morrisons stores, but worth a look for a cheaper price. However, some may find that a newer PS3 at a slightly higher price is better value, especially if you find a deal with some games somewhere.

In the UK, most 20GB and 60GB fat-factor PS3's have PS2 game backwards compatibility, while most of the 80GB models do not. I currently still own my 60GB fat-factor PS3 and I haven't run into any PS2 which aren't compatible. My model number is CECHC03.

Also, as far as I'm aware, all PS3 models play PSone games (or possibly almost all).

the odd ps2 game will play, because of software emulation

but the 60GB has hardware emulation

Nope, the 80GB cannot solely emulate any PS2 game.

The 60GB was the only one in the UK that could do any PS2 emulation (around 90% of games worked) and it mixed software and hardware emulation. Whilst the Emotion Engine was emulated in it the Graphics Synthesiser wasn't, it was the only piece of PS2 hardware that was to be found in the EU 60GB models.

As a few people have mentioned the 60g one is backwards compatible with ps2 games they have 4 usb and a multie card reader, this is why the 60g are selling for big bucks on eBay and the others are not. go wiki it Google it or something.

can this play 3d blu ray?

Yes but you will need to update it to the latest firmware via internet or USB stick.

As others have said it can but if you use a lossless surround setup you can't get lossless audio from the PS3 when running a 3D BR.

How much do these normally sell for?

i got the 1st ps3 that came out hardly ever used it how much is it worth?

I'm probably going to start another debate but as I understand it the slim bitstreams unencoded lossless audio, whereas the fat ps3's internally encode/process the audio. Dolby/dts true hd whatever they are called are possible from all ps3's, just the slim allows some of the burden to be removed from the internal CPU architecture to the external amp. Apologies if I am wrong.

Edit- Just re-read your comment I didn't read the 3D bit. The ps3 has a few sacrifices where 3D is concerned and lossless audio is one if them. 3D wasn't supposed to be possible on the ps3 as it doesn't have the 1.4 hdmi revision so it has to drop some things, I believe it's also not full HD 3D. I'm sorry for any confusion.

The slim can bitstream you're right about that but when doing 3D Blu-ray it can only output DTS or DD, you can't even get it to bitsream for whatever reason.
