Question speaks for itself, Had my Original PS3 80 gig die out , Purchased a used PS3 160 gig No multi card reader..... will the lid from the 80 be compatible and able to be installed on the 160gig model.... and well i prefer the chrome finish of the 80 gigs lid over the grey matt finish of the 160 plus i use alot of sd cards etc for pics and what not
The lid might physically fit, but you would have to make some special modifications to make the car reader work by somehow tieing the card reader into one of the USB ports.
It would be far easier just to buy one of these and be done with it:
Thought so, was hoping the slots for the ribbon cables etc were still on the 160gig model board, Thanks
