Cheap 2nd hand ps3 phat or new super slim??

8 replies 314 views Edited Apr 20, 2013
Hey everyone

So, I can get a ps3 phat, 80gb with controller for $107 delivered

Or

I can buy a new super slim for $299 500gb with 2 controllers


Can Anyone lend a hand at all with deciding which way to go..

I'm hoping to download a few games as I have ps+, but I have a hdd I can use

And I plan on taking it to a relatives every month or 2.. Would the super slim be that much easier to move around and more reliable?

Thanks Smiley Happy

Try to avoid the 80GB.

It's like a ticking time bomb due to it's age in my opinion.

I'd go for the red GoW bundle, it looks spiffy.

As with anything used, you're buying someone else's problem.

I would try to find a new slim. The super slim is kind cheap feeling and looking and loud. The phat is also loud and rather big.

 

3 months ago I paid 225 for a brand new 320 slim uncharted bundle on craigs list.

Buy something NEW.

 

You'll have the convenience of having a warranty. And the option of buying an extended warranty.

I wish I could but I'm in australia and I cant really find any new slims under $300. And even then they only have 1 controller and smaller hdd. I don't mind the look though so thanks everyone I think i'll go with a new one Smiley Happy

get at least a slim. only reason to buy the fat is if you want to play ps2 games. slims are very good, and super slims are just small, sleek, and bigger hard drives
