Hoping to get a PS3 in 1-3 Weeks

Post by Doitsu on Wed Jun 16, 2010 7:09 pm

Alright, as I have said before I am trying to get a PS3. I will be using Craigslist to trade off some of my old items to make money for a PS3 and then buy one off of the same website. My questions are:

1. How much should I pay for a used PS3 slim/fat?
2. How many GB's should I look for?
3. What games should I get?
4. Anything else?

1. I wouldn't really know, the original price (120GB) is $299.99, Slims aren't very old and if they're in good condition I think -$50 or -$100 is perhaps already very decent, but then again I have no brains for these kind of deals actually.

2. I've got a 40GB, 40GB is pretty small, if you get a standard PS3 slim it's either 120GB or 250GB, if you don't plan on storing all kinds of films and music on your PS3 and just use it for gaming and some other stuff than I assume 120GB is more than enough.

3. What do you like, I can't really answer that, I like Red Dead Redemption at the moment, it's like a GTA in Western style. I also play MoD2 a lot, not because it's that good, just because it's that addictive.

4. I don't think so, perhaps check if the PS3 comes with a controller, idk, and perhaps you want some other accessoires for your PS3.

1. What Annihilator said.

2. 40GB is NOT enough if you plan on playing on the PS3 a lot with lots of games. I have an 80GB for 2-3 years and it's always full so I have to delete demos. No, I cba to upgrade it.

3. That depends on what genres of games you prefer but I highly recommend LittleBigPlanet. It makes you happy after rage quitting MW2. Unless you're playing in that ridiculous electric maze.

4. Fatty > Slim

1. I recommend getting a Slim. More cheaper and efficient than a Fat.

2. I forgot what the Slim's GB is.... But I know it's more than my Fat's. Razz

3. Ok... *Takes a deep breath*

-Battlefield: Bad Company 2
-Call Of Duty 4
-Call Of Duty: World At War
-Sould Calibur IV
-LittleBigPlanet
-Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots
-MAG
-Uncharted 2
-Killzone 2
-Medal Of Honour (When it comes out and download beta so we can play together)
-LittleBigPlanet 2 (When it comes out)
-Killzone 3 (When it comes out)
-Call Of Duty: Black Ops (When it comes out)
-Metal Gear Solid: Rising (When it comes out)

(Yes, I am trying to make you bankrupt. Razz)

4.Maybe some extra controllers, PSN money cards (Like XBOX Live MS points cards), and a Bluetooth mic so we can talk.

1- I would get the slim, it's not too much more and you get a bigger hard drive and well... it's slim Very Happy
2- If you get the slim you will have plenty of GB, maybe almost too many. I would say 80 is enough, I have an 80Gb PS3 and I still have tones of room.
3-It depends what games you're into. There are alot of exclusives like Uncharted 2 which are really good.
4- If you have an HDTV use HDMI it makes it look so much better. Hit me up when you get it, my PSN is Flyerboy10

What? I have an 80 GB too and it's always almost full! Well, it's probably because I have a bunch of Qore episodes saved on it...

Get a Slim if you live in a hot area, I used to keep my Fat in my attic and it kept freezing because heat, or you could just get a External Fan for the fat.


I still recommend the Slim, there are no reasons why the Fat is better.
