Other previos good deals were PS3 80Gb + 3 games for £277 from argos and amazon uk.

But this is the 60Gb which is compatible with PS1/2 games.

Is it worth it for £279.99 pre-owned. Their is 12 month garuntee.

Not brand new, but good condition.

Would you BUY??

if you are that desperate to play ps2 games, then buy a ps2!

.....................Would you BUY??



When I can get an 80Gb one cheaper with games?

NO CHANCE!

Cold in my eyes

If i want to play PS2 games... i just use my PS2....

60gig does have overheat problems compaired to the 40 or 80 gig
price for a pre owned does not seem great
after playing ps3 games PS2 looks pants so am not bothered

USB Ports
Two USB ports vs the 60GB console's four USB ports.

PS2 games compatibility
No backward compatibility with PS2 games for the 40GB PS3. Sony said something about saving money here by not paying for emulation licences.

most people who buy a ps3 still have a ps2 anyway cos you get practicly nothing when you trade it in

When i got my 80gb i wasa bit gutted that it did not play the PS2 games... however now... im not bothered..

What game would you play on the PS2 which would stop you getting the PS3 version or similar??

On ebay Ps3 60Gb are going for £350+


there are quite a few on ebay for around £250 fixed price.

Looking good for cold deal of the day! Brrrrrrr :oops:

i got a 60gb on release day and its worth every penny!
Extra usb's makes charging controller, phone, playing rock band and having a external hard drive possible.
Internel memory card reader is good if you buy psp games on ps3 to transfer over.
The backwards compatibilty works for every game i own and i have a lot of them.
All ps3's have ps1 backwards compatibility though.
Remember ps2 games are still region locked on ps3 consoles.
As you say the 60gb is worth a fortune on ebay; seen them sell for up to £600 with a couple of games.
Its a great investement.
I certainly wouldnt pick a 80gb over it as hard drive means nothing when a 320gb is about £50 on play.
I think its a good deal and will therefore heat you up

marvel vs capcom 2 on the PS2 - you would wanna play that on your PS3 60Gb.

one of the best fighting games ever.

Edit: I'm just playing. Get whichever you fancy. Horses for courses, innit?

why is it in so many forums they big up the 60Gb and say thats the best one and make it worth so valuable coz of the ps1/ps2 compatability of games.

Now reading peoples serious comments here, 60Gb is not really worth the pice.

Playing old games always seems a better idea than the actual reality. If I was buying a PS3 again I would by the very latest model I could, not some second hand launch model. The chances of me going back to last gen games are slim to none so backward compatibility is worthless to me.

LoL :thumbsup:

My local cash converters has the 60gb ps3 in with a three month warranty
for £229.99, I am sure these are not going for silly money on Ebay atm

Any good offers for buying PS3?

Rumours PS3 slim comming out this summer with a 45nm chip , current one uses 65nm.

The new slim version will be more efficient, less power consuming.

Why are people voting this cold?
this is a discontinued model of PS3 therefore its quite rare and should sell for a lot of money
i have a 60Gb PS3 and its great with all the extras, its worth every penny
i think Riz is right, there is a lot of jealous people voting this cold
have some heat

It's cold because it's a pre-owned item (and an overpriced one IMHO), so can't really be classed as a 'deal'.

I'm not jealous about it though, have owned 2x 60GB consoles since launch and can't understand how they hold their value so well. Would much rather have the 80GB one I picked up for £144.99 anyday

having PS2 and PS1 backwards compatability, range of card slots, 4 USB ports, Crome styling is better than not having it right?

Was a Woolies 1/2 price special just after Xmas ;-)

the reason for buying ps3 is to play high definition blu ray games not to use them on ps2 game. if you want to play ps2 just buy ps2 console... so very cold for me like winter...

if it's new very good deal but if it's used not very good, if you had it before very good but if you're going to buy it for that price very bad...

How can you vote cold for it having extra abilities that you wont use? A cold vote usualy refers to a high price or someone finding the item cheaper elsewhere.
I actually use my 60Gb to play PS2 games quite a lot as i sometimes fancy a change, and the 60Gb upgrades the quality and speed of playing with a previous-generation game

Each to their own but I much prefer the 60GB model - while you can have a PS2 set up as well it's a lot less hassle to have it integrated into the PS3 especially as most TV's only have one component socket (which I use on my TV's for the Wii) plus a lot of TV's now have multiple hdmi's. Additional USB ports without needing hubs are handy as are the memory card readers.

worst deal i've ever seen on here

Original Poster

well i dont have a PS2. But i love marvel vs capcom 2 which is on the PS2.

So i would like to play marvel vs capcom 2 and the best thing to play it on would be a ps3 60Gb rather then buying a ps2.

Have you guys even played marvel vs Capcm 2- one of he best fighting game ever over 50 characters, wow.

Oh and he street IV game cant wait to get that.

Some people here still saying PS3 60Gb good and ok.

Ok its pre-owned thats what is making this deal bad.

What if it wasnt pre-owned would you guys buy this then??

Its got 12 month warranty from GAME. And it anything does go wrong, game will give a replacement one.

This products have been tested and working perfectly. They are in good condtion.

its just some of them may not have manuals which you dont really need.

iv ordered mine, and cant wait to get it.

iv waited this long for 60Gb and its available only here.

Gamestation had it for £250 but in store only (mostly all sold out).

Everywere else 60Gb is overpriced and no garuntee if it stops working.

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
