    user error isnt my fault. guy wants to sell me this PS3 for 120 because he wants to get a slim and he claims it doesnt read blu ray and games. just DVDs.

    probably will cost more to repair it, then getting a brand new slim yourself.

    abort. abort. abort.

    This happened to my PS3 about a year and a half ago. Had to send it in. $149 to get it fixed, flat rate. They won't do it if there's no serial, btw.

    Yeah, it's great for streaming video to your TV. I wrote up a how to guide (can search for it, I started the thread) for doing it with Nero MediaHome. Though there are plenty of other pieces of software that will do it as well.

    Yeah, unless it's a 60gb launch, I'd probably skip on it for $100. It's going to cost you $250 total. Might as well get a new one for $299 that comes with a warranty.

    That's a fine deal for a bc model. Who knows if or when Sony will bring it back. I'd gladly pay 250 for a bc model, but maybe the rest of you are too good for last gen games? :dunno: Sounds like you'll be using it for other reasons anyways, can't do much better than 100 bones.

    PS4 will not play PS3 or PS2 games, but will play PS1. You heard it here first.

    only problem with my ps3 so far is that the games are always better on the 360. Thus making me buy them for 360. Other than that best bluray palyer ive ever owned.
