    PS3 40gb PHAT OR SLIM?

    Hi all, just going to purchase a ps3. Not sure what the difference is apart from hard drive space.

    Price difference - £100 - £130 for 40gb used phat ps3, £250-£280 for ps3 120-250gb new

    With the price savings of the 40gb would it be better to stick to that. Would i get any problems or risks for the future?

    I was told about the OS on the older phat ones. That they should be allowed to install them in comparison to the new ps3 slims

    Sorry for creating a thread about this

    Thanks

    I would personally get the new slim one so you have the warranty for a peace of mind although I've had my 40gb phat for 2 years now and I've not had a problem with it yet.

    Don't touch the used 40gb's - go for a slim

    These 40gb's came out in October 2007 - just get a new one..

    40gb ones seem to be the most problematic ones.
