  • My son will have for sale soon a refurbished PS3 with a new hard drive for approx £130. Message me if you are interested.
  • I bought one from Sainsburys for £160 a few months ago. I would try them. It was only available online, but you will have it in a day or two.

    Good Luck!
  • ill let you know by tomorrow Saga if im interested. thanks for the offer
  • shopto.net have the 320g model for £185 - best price I've seen for that model (and worth the bigger HDD for all the demos etc. you'll probably end up getting)

    Tesco, Sainsburys, Game, etc. have PS3s for a similar price to shopto.net but their harddrives are all half the size at that price.
  • Get a 320gb, buy playstation plus 90 days for 11.99 and download motorstorm apocalypse, little big planet 2, infamous 2 and a couple of other games that I have forgotten all for free. It amounts to over 100 quids worth straight away. Buy fifa 12, cod, skyrim, gran turismo, gta and make sure you have enough controllers, and you are set for at least 3 months!
  • http://www.hotukdeals.com/search?action=search&keywords=playstation+3+console £100 for a preowned one. Or try gumtree on the for sale and search PS3.
  • the reason I bought one recently was that my old one had that yellow light of death. Once they go there are few things you can do to fix them permanently. However, heating them up with a hair drier nd then cooling them down with a fan can make them work for a few weeks. I did a lot of research on all this before I made the decision to bin the old one and buy a new one.

    The reason I mention this is that many of the forums and youtube videos claimed that this very short term fix would be enough to fool a retailer (like Game) into buying your machine off you thinking it is working.

    For that reason I would recommend against buying a pre owned one from an unknown vendor online. you could buy one that is as good as finished but will give you a couple of months of use. I read of people buying pre owned machines and them breaking after a few weeks and the vendor refusing to replace them or offer a refund as they claimed they were working fine when they were sold.

    I'm not casting aspersions on any CL members, but I would, personally, rather pay £190 for a new machine with a guarantee than £100 for what could well turn out to be a disaster.
  • Regarding the one my son is selling, he's having a re-think about the price - it will be lower than what I have quoted above. He's trying to start up a business doing repairs and refurbishments.

    No problem - you got a good deal there!

    Where does it say that? I haven't lost any games before despite letting my subscription run out? I am talking both free and discounted games as well

    Just googled quickly, I could be wrong
  • Hmmmm ok seems its been revamped slightly then. Still, 11.99 should be long enough to decide if you like the games enough!
  • Yeah and 11.99 is also cheaper than renting them all individually.
  • Ps wasn't being a know it all, only checked it out because I fancied the sound of the deal!
  • Bloody know it alls! :-)
  • Lol no biggy, delving deeper playstation seemed to have written it into the ts and cs in an update, I suppose people used to be able to exploit it

    I still have all my PS plus bits.

  • As Sam said, that seems to be a recent revision of service so I would guess that anyone who bought before it would be allowed to keep what they had.
  • I joined PS+ when it first started and it's always been their policy then if you cancel your subscription you lose all free content - the only stuff you keep is discounted games that you've paid money for (albeit with a discount).
  • Are they any good for the porno, these playstion things?
  • BluRay porn yes.

    Or Leisure Suit Larry.
  • I've got a fairly new 320gb, if anyone's after one.
