I thought it was 360's that needed a drive key.



No, ps3's are linked to the drive as well.

you can buy the bluray drives on ebay so there must be a way around it. there not cheap though
might be better off selling it on ebay as ps3 without the drive - save yourself the hassle.

Any with the YLOD?

You say a job lot, how many did you get ?

Are they all working or are they as spares or repair ?

1 bad ps3 from a job lot of ps3's isnt bad. Its always a risk buying a job lot of anything! but i'm guessing you must have got it quite cheap and if you sell the ps3's individually you'll make back your money that you lost on the one ps3!

If you are selling the ps3's then why not sell the faulty one as a faulty....

It's possible to swap the boards over but i can't even do that lol....i've got it listed on ebay at the moment for £50 or best offer but i doubt anyone will want it without a drive, unless they use it as a media centre.
