Really? Seems about the going rate for a 60gb. Took me 2 weeks to sell mine at this price! (and that was a few months ago!)

Good find, cheaper than repair/refurd from Sony
Good price.

I over heard a GAME employee telling someone that they will be selling pre owned PS3's for £100 soon (this weekend or start of next week) if this helps anyone. Not sure if it was FAT or slim. FAT more likely.
Why would you pay that for a second hand noisy heavy unreliable small disked phat ?

Oh yes the 60Gb can play PS2 games - er woo oO
PS2 games are good for kids or for PS2 fans
If you have livingsocial voucher this might be very cheap
Does it come with a controller?
Not worth the risk for ylod, worth paying the £40/50 more for a brand new 160gb slim.

My friend repairs PS3's & the 60gb ones (the oldest) are packing up left right & centre & the 40gb ones arn't far behind, I'd go for the slim

There is a 1 year warranty as well
well we have had 2 60gb original ps3s since day of release, both used daily esp with play tv and now netflix, not a problem at all!
touch wood.
So where is the cheapest place to buy a new or refurbished PS3 160gb slim then please?
HMV have got a death wish giving a 1 year warranty on these
I wouldve bought one of these as I have loads of ps2 games, oh well got a small one now
i bought a new 60gb fat ps3 4 years ago, after 2 years it got the ylod problem, sony wanted £129 to replace it, but the contract is with the shop, so having it die after 2 years is not good enough ,
the law says it should last a reasonable amount of tme, and 2 years is not .. so the shop gave me a new 80gb fat .. 2 years later same thing .. so i go back to the shop and they refuse to replace it .. i sent sale of good s act law to their head office and they said theyd pay for sony to replace it ..
still got another fat 80gb, i aksed sony for a slim but they said no so i said i expect it to die in couple years and so will ask again for another then lol .. each time you get a new machine theh time it has to last starts again...

just want people to know that just because it says 1 year warrenty .. it doenst mean anything .. you have rights and you can have up to 6 years free warrenty because of the euro law ..

its true anyway :_)

You as the buyer have to proove that it is a manufacture defect to get anything over the 1yrs warrenty - upto 6 years max in England. I had the same problem with Argos on a PS3 launch model that YLOD after 3 years very light use, I went and got a engineers report from a local repair centre stating that certain model of the PS3 had cooling issues which made the led free solder breakaway from the chips after X amount of time. Argos refunded the test report fees (in Argos vouchers) + gave a pro rata refund on the PS3 - this was no where near the original purchase price.

Alot of engineers wont do reports though because of comebacks or they may actually already do repair works for retailers/insurance. I was quoted £140 + shipping from sony to swap my model for a refurb at the time.

lol @ 1 year warranty, HMV will be lucky to last another month
Meh, I fixed these too, the main reason for them going ylod is because they are clogged with dust, its the owners fault if they let them get dusty!

True apart from it having to last a reasonable amount of time after every replacement. I am pretty sure it applies to the date of purchase, not when each machine is replaced.

And then how would you play PS3 games? Didn't really think it through did you...
I can get it for £71 after discounts/living social etc but just cant decide if its worth it - already got a 360 and it is a fat

It says nothing of the sort - it says a "reasonable amount of time", which is left undefined. The "6 years" bit isn't linked to what "reasonable" is defined as. I suspect they settled just to get rid of you - unless it was a very expensive laptop, if you took them to court it wouldn't be that unlikely for you to lose.

Yep, this. The 6 years is from the original purchase date and doesn't start again every time you get a new machine.
HOT. A 1 year guarantee plus as these are older consoles there's a probability they've been sitting in storage a while = odds on possibility of sub 3.55 firmware, meaning it could be easily made to run custom firmware and back-up managers, giving you untold gaming 'options'

Where does it say 1 year warranty? cant see any info on warranty

OK seen it in the help section, might go for this
Edited by: "giddy1778" 7th Mar 2012
Will this come with a controller?
Voted hot from me. Yes older phats suffer with the ylod but going on personal experience if looked after it will last. My launch 60gb model is used daily, just 4 COD games logged 60+ days gaming as well as 30+ platinumed other games so it's had a heck of use and still going strong. Once a month it sees a 30 second hoover around the vents, USB ports and memory card readers. (stored on a open stand).

Obviously though being preowned consoles you'll never know the previous history for them.
Surely youd sooner pay a little more for a new console. About £150 for a new ps3 isnt it?
It's a shame the PS2 backwards compat is so shoddy because - frankly - there are better PS2 games than there are PS3 games IMO

Actual PS2s are hard to come by now - most preowned ones are shagged-out and not worth the price on the box sadly...

I miss my PS2

Bulls**t
my ps3 slim 250gb got ylod the other day.punchased it 2 years ago give or take a week or two.it was only used now and again to watch the odd blueray.
my old phat is still going strong in bedroom & thats a lot older and used a lot more(games etc).
moral of my experiance-ylod = sony manufacturing fault & if it bites the dust after a year your fu***d.

You do realise what the word "mainly" means don't you?
Not worth it for the ylod risk and the fact that slims take up less space and are more power efficient.

For PS2 games I can use my pc and an emulator. a PC can play PS2 games in full hd, PS3 cannot.
Games for PS2 work as well? Since when has the PS3 been backward compatible, I was told when I purchased my PS3 years ago that it was most certainly NOT backward compatable, what have I missed?

yes, but did you mean to say "the main reason"
All the same, do you hoover your tv,dvd,amp,speakers,pc? i tend to give them a polish.
my main point is its a sony manufacturing fault & they dont care if it happens after 1 year
