    Well assuming you can plug it in and turn it on and see it working,then surely the rest of it should be working.
    You might not be able to put it on net if their net connection isn't wireless ( mine on BT Hub ).

    I think you know the answer already, Turn it on!

    If you can connect it to a TV, you can browse around the menu system to check that the wireless adapter is found. Not sure if there is a way you can test the optical out unless you try it. But then if you are not planning to use the optical out, then does it matter if it works or not?

    Also sorry to ask not being nosey or anything,but how much are you paying for it. Cos say it was a rideculous low price,I be wary of it.

    you do no it costs £300 at great universal.com and if you use the 20% discount for first time buyers works out to £240.

    I wouldn't pay all that for used one. If you go to a shop,least its new,you know for fact its not stolen,and you get your 1 yr gurantee,2 yrs if you buy at M&S. Or buy a decent bundle.

    and where can you get games for £20?

    I got a 60GB one last yr,about October it was,and paid £350 and that come with 3 games from Blockbusters.

    I just think you should either pay less,personally I don't buy used goods like consoles.

    i wouldnt pay that sort of money for anything without at least a years guarentee, with codes and the help of the great members here, i think a few more quid will get you better

    but no that much more if yours conks out after a month, then you have wasted more than the £40 you rfer to as alot of money

    but its unlikely itl conk out kos i luk afta ma stuff, i dnt no, il c if i can budge him

    If you feel bad about letting them down on you buying it,just say something as come up and you need to prioritise your cash and can't buy it.

    I don't know why people buy such expensive things to only sell them after a short while.

    I remember buying my PS2 in 2002 and we had it till Oct 2007,buying a PS3 was a real deserved treat at the time.

    Besides the point if you look after it or not,electrical items you never know when they just breakdown. Look at the bother people have some time with 360's all this talk of red lights and whatever they call it.

    nothing is likely to konk out til it does, what a silly statement things break down to other resons not just to misuse, good luck and hope it goes well

    i thought was a good deal, having 2nd thoughts now

    i dont think its that bad....

    If you were selling it, would you go for less......

    Check out the part ex value at gamestation or cex...

    Would you want more than that for a private sale ?

    if its virtually new then shopuldnt the buyer still have the receipt in which case it will have a warranty. If he/she say they have lost it, then I'd doubt it was that new and be wary of buying it. I'd rather pay for a new one for the sake of around £40.

    hes going to show me it working it before i buy it, im going for it, should be ok, cant beat that prie and get 3 of the best games out, he did come down from £300 after he had it posted fr weeks

    hotukdeals.com/ite…th/

    thats decent offer if you after the new GTA,if you not could always sell it,could be shortages and ppl pay more on eBay for it.
