Got her today for a clean $25, been many years since I’ve had a ps3 and looking forward to getting back into it

a PS3 only below $50 is already a good deal itself to be honest with you. Any plans with it yet?
This guy had it locked away in a storage unit ever since the release of the ps4 and I saw he was selling it on fb marketplace for that price so I figured I’d jump out on it, it didn’t come with a power cable or hdmi but I’m using my ps5 power cable for the time being, swapping it out between the two until I can get a official one for the ps3. Overall it’s in great shape, got some scuffs on the top, rubber feet are gone, dust on the inside but other than that works great. No games for it yet but I’ll get some as time goes on
Nice, so it basically has no mileage at all. Great find.
I dont think scuff and missing rubber feets means no mileage. It could be that his house is clean but it was not certain that it was untouched. The guy I bought my first PS3 just use the bluray drive and I use it to play games juat fine. And there were one Ps3 Fat I saw has absoluty no Game Data on it at all. Just Netflix and Streaming services.
One of my used Super Slims also was only used as a Bluray player. I suppose that should help lasting the HDD longer?
Is there a way to see the hours a PS3 has been used in the XMB since production?
There is no way with Sony's official firmware, but it's possbile thanks to custom firmware tools. You can swap out a HDD from any Ps3 model really. So even if it's dying, you should still be able to swap out a new one. Transfer data tho is not as easy from an old HDD to new one. It's also good to swap out a SSD even if you dont use CFW Ps3.
Thanks. I have Hen on all my Super Slims. Do you know where to find the option to show how long the console has been used already?
I think I saw it in the Cell/RSX option in webman or an option like that. I know it's in Webman, the one you need to adjust fan speed manually.
Yeah, I remember seeing operation time in the temp menu, too. But is it really the overall time since production? I thought it was just counting from installing CFW on.
Some people claimed it's from first intialization. I cant see mine so I cant tell you what's correct.
I probably should have said good condition instead of great, it’s got some cosmetic wear on it but works great, it’s going up in the closet for now until I can get some decent games to play on it cause I have none now
How do you open that drawer without the knob?
Open the drawer under it at the bottom
That’s what I thought. Enjoy the ps3!!!
$25?! Nice score, seller must have been insane.
I got a 320 GB Slim with one DS3 for 20 Euros last year. Also had 3 PSN games installed and the account not deleted. Playing it right now, it's in pristine condition.
Some people just seem to want to get rid of stuff and instead of throwing it straight away they sell it for ridiculous money. You just have to be there to make the deal ;-).
Yea I think this guy just wanted to get rid of it as he had no real use for it, I thank him for it cause it brought back a piece of my childhood
