Yeah saw that - it does add £7.20 shipping if you go through the checkout though. Might be worth mentioning if you call though

thanks op, smashing deal!

there may be cashback at topcashback (worth a go)

Are these susceptible to YLOD?

Are these susceptible to YLOD?



Yes, around 18 months, try and keep in a cool place and do not allow to overheat and you should be OK. No direct sunlight

dont feed it after midnight either

Can the firmware be un-updated to allow the use of homebrew on these consoles??:D

Incredible price. Great find OP!

Is it the fat one or the slim one ?

Seems to be the slim version....cracking deal, if not then slim version is worth the extra cash imo.

Most likely these have taken the 3.56 FW which i believe will bar you from installing any homebrew and also installs a rootkit

Yes the PS3 has a bad record for the YLOD on these model even though the fanboys used to try and convince everyone they didn't.. then the slim was released so now it is ok to tell

Good luck with that

Great deal, incidentally. I'll be selling my old one and getting one of these with a nice 12 month guarantee - hopefully for only £40 or so difference.

Good thinking! I got my PS3 on the original release day and it's still going strong but like your idea...

Sold out when I just called the Call Centre.

"This product is no longer available"

Oh well. And people are still giving it heat, haha.

The 80GB was the newest iteration of the fat PS3 before the slim came out so along with the cooler running GPU and CPU over the 60/40GB models it also has the bigger chassis for decent airflow. So out of the fat PS3s it's the least likely to YLOD I think most of the stories of 80GB models YLODing are about the older US 80GB models.

Can I ask? Is this link dodgy in some form or way? I can't find the product anywhere except for the above link?

Great price, I'm a 360 man and just bought a separate bluray player as I have no need for a PS3 but this is a great price!

Not dodgy no - I have the clearance section on my favs. They usually have a link through from their home page but it's not there atm for some reason.

Lol, if you feed it after midnight it will turn into this :-

Argh, why am i so indecisive. Missed out again, whilst thinking shall i call and order over the phone to get free delivery. Now got an error code when trying to complete my order.

Well that lasted long

still working for me..

haha ive got one in my basket but the page says unavailable.. argh

If this is brand new and sealed, it will have very old firmware on it as they stopped making fat ps3's in 2009

Is this really worth nearly £160 when you can get the newer slimmer ones which are more reliable and have bigger hard drives for not much more?

A more realistic price for a console released 4 years ago.

This product is no longer available

No it didn't it was the US 80GB, I take it you're the other breed of fanboy that denied RROD was a problem?
