I bought one yesterday for £80 lol, 80gb model

Please note:

The "Terms & Conditions" for ]GAME.co.uk, Gamestation.co.uk, & GamePlay.co.uk all changed yesterday.

Make sure you are happy with those presently displayed at the respective sites if buying by mail order.

The changes may be connected to the news yesterday (]Comment #20).

The actual changes made are not highlighted on the web site(s) so it is difficult to tell without comparing with the previous terms side-by-side.

From GAME.co.uk, or a GAME store?

Did you list it as a deal if there was more than one available (or the offer was nationwide)?

Rather pay the extra score and get the 250Gb + Uncharted from ]Gamestation

Backward computability is great and also having sensible amount of USB … Backward computability is great and also having sensible amount of USB ports, (ridiculous having no rear USB ports on the slim) but the trouble is they are nosier and far more likely to suffer YLOD than the newer slim and Sony's repair charge is horrendous.



The rear usb ports are the one thing that i really wish they had, i got play tv so the wire sticks out the front. MY PS3 IS 40GB super silent and never had problems, my brother has a 40gb also and his sounds like a aircraft trying to take off lol.

You can always buy a USB Hub & run this to the rear of your console, then daisy chain more hubs from this is needed (and assuming the power loss through the chain is not detrimental to the operation of the equipment attached).

You can then use the remaining (front) USB port with another hub for additional devices if necessary but, yes, I agree, removing two ports (considering the relative cheap price they must be if the console motherboard supports more than two) was an odd decision to take.

I would steer clear of the phats, with their poor reliability.

Mine (80Gb) has been fine for over 18 months but my neighbours died after about 30 months, mind you he used to CANE it for hours lol!

Would defo go for the slim if you can - smaller, quieter, more economical and bigger disk of course

Currys, you might find the odd one in stores

that i jus dont believe

i wouldnt buy a preowned console from game they never test them out properly

i bought a preowned xbox 360 a couple of years ago i got it out the box and it had mud on it actual mud on the console the controller was VERY used and sticky but i couldnt be bothered to take it back as im lazy about 4 months later it broke i took it back to the shop and they said they didnt have any preowned consoles in stock so therefore they couldnt replace it they tols me to go to the next nearest game which is 30 miles away they said they were instock there i went there again i was turned away as they didnt have any stock so i asked for either my money back or a new console they said no so i took it kept it about a week later i rang game who and asked if they had any preowned consoles instock they said yeah i went in about 20 mins later they said they didnt have any so again i was turned away but i said i jus rang and was told they have preowned in stock then they said they would have a look they went round back for about 20 mins yeah 20 MINS then come back and said they have one then they gave it me

and thats my long story about why i hate game not that anyone will read it in this cold cold thread

I work there, I no it's right, not every store has these in, worth checking one near you if your near the store

Most of my MW2 buddies have had failures, myself included.
We are hoping for more luck with a slim model.
One of the guys with Continous Play had 5 phat replacements, but I guess most of that was down to poor service.

Perhaps you & your buddies just leave your consoles on for too long &/or do not properly ventilate them.

Were all the original consoles purchased from new?

If you are a GAME employee, perhaps you would be kind enough to comment within a "Misc" thread I created:

]GAME sells ex-display stock as 'new' - Will refund or replace any non-'mint' goods bought at Easter

I would like to get a balanced viewpoint from each side of the business.

Thanks.
