PlayStation 3 40GB Refurbished Blast from the Past System Bundle
Great for the price
I decided to ignore the bad reviews on this one and buy the system anyway. And so far I'm glad I did. This system has obviously been used previously, there are scratches all over it, but it's just cosmetic and it works as expected. No YLOD for me, I plugged it in and it's been working as expected. I'm not sure if it'll stay this way for long, but it works now and I'm happy. The controller included sucks and as been HEAVILY used previously, one analog stick will stick if you push it all the way forward. But I planned on buying another controller anyway so it wasn't a deal breaker for me. Also, for the people who complain about not having enough space; you can put any 2.5 inch drive into it and it'll work just as it did before. I put a 350gb drive in mine and it works fine. So I guess it comes down to luck. If I were you, I would take the risk and hope you don't get a broken system. And if you do, just return it; you get a 7 day money back guarantee
My friend bought this system from gamestop and still has it for 3 years while his xbox360 lasted two years so I bought this after my xbox360 went out. I still have it after a year (which is more than my previous TWO Xboxes had and I took care of them still got RROD!) but this is an excellent system just remember this if there is a disk can not be read error for ps3 the blueray drive probably went out it costs $30 bucks so its very easy to fix, keep it on an elevated surface about half an inch above you table so it can breath. and if you want games from ps2 that you liked well for me it was ico and shadow of colossus, Jak and dexter series , and Ratchet and clank can't wait for the new game, and they made HD remakes of them for ps3 so if you want ps2 games that aren't on ps3 well the station costs about the same as the blueray drive but doesn't have the same graphics nor built in wifi so other than that the ps3 is a great console only reason for the 9 rating is cause I don't like madden football lol.
DO NOT BUY
I love the ps3 i was really happy when I got it but after a week It got YLOD are you serious plz dont buy it waste of MONEY
This PS3 is EPICLY awsome!!!
The Playstation is the best system in GAMESTOP it should be the only system in the WORLD! XBOX sucks!!!!!!!!! WII Sucks Nintendo sucks and every other system except for Playstation!!!!!!!!!!!
best bundle.. worth every penny
I thought it was a great bundle and came with some really great games.
I needed a console and I am not going to buy a xbox360 .I am a ps3 fan. and I really wanted this console so I can play GTAV ...its only the best game ever.
Not a terrible price but....
This is a decent bundle if your looking to save money, otherwise I'd go with a newer ps3 or a ps3 that could play ps2 games (20 and 60 gb, the 80 4 ports emulates and can play most)
Newer ps3's use less power, less chance of breaking and more gb's.
The other older ones can play ps2 games and have 4 usb ports....
Great deal for a reason obviously
bought this bundle marked down for around $200 and as soon as I plugged it in it had YLOD... you gotta be kidding me.
