PlayStation 3 System 120GB SLIM (GameStop Premium Refurbished)
Just like new
Bought it on sale for $150 recieved it quickly. opened the box it looked like new no visible flaws or issues. Connected it up and it worked perfectly. Remote also looks like new. Cheaper than Craigslist.
Worked Great... But then...
So here's what happened... I turned in my brother's PS3 (because for some reason I HAD to buy my own..) to gamestop and got 70$ in-store credit. Using this I then purchased a Refurbished 120GB PS3. When I opened it at my friends house, it included a controller, system, power cord, and, huh? A universal audio/video cord of some-sort? It consisted of a cluster of cords and outputs. I believe they were used for an Xbox, PS3 and something else... We didn't use this cord however because my friend had an HDTV so we used the HDMI cord. PS3 works great and dandy, had a wonderful time playing for 13 straight hours. Then I go home and would like to continue this enjoyment. Well... this "universal cable" wouldn't project a game screen to my TV. I tried the different options it gave me, but nothing worked. Okay... probably just a bad..."cord". So I proceed to take the cord from my PS2 to use, that doesn't work either. I can only conclude that the import slot for the regular non-HD cord is busted. Like what? So now gamestop continues to sell me things they obviously haven't tested before resale. Now, when I go back to have them repair it, they better take my game data from GTA and move it unto the new system, because that's what i'm positive they will do as a quick fix. I will not let my 13 hours of gameplay go to waste. So if you are going to buy this product, make sure the whole thing works properly.
It is terrible so far.
I purchased this game system and so far it has been terrible. It makes me wonder if I have wasted money on it. It has done nothing but freeze before I can access anything, including the psn. This highly upsets me because I have hundreds of dollars of downloadable content and games and if I can't put them on here and play them then whats the point? I did buy it in bad, wet weather though, so maybe some moisture got into the system, but Ive been trying to run it for hours and no improvement has been made in functioning. And even so, the shipping is not my responsibility to worry about. I would advise advise people to just buy brand new like I have should have.
Overall very solid system!
The system runs smoothly, but sometimes shuts itself off instead of resetting the console. Games work perfectly fine. Good amount of storage. I have PS3 and PS1 games saved on it. You can create a PS1 memory card on the PS3 system which is really nice. Glad I bought this game!!
Read i love this system PS3
When i first got my ps3 i got it when it first came out and then i was all was playing the games a lot i play like all the game thats out right now thats why i like ps3 because you can clean the system and make it faster just by plugging out the power cord in back of it a lot of people dont no this trick and when you do it plug it out an plug it in first hold down the inject button and make sure in the back of the system is plug out leave it plug in and you is going to hear a fan noise make it run trust me i did it a lot but the sad part about it i sold it cuz it was too much and my mom paid $300 and i did not no that i had the 350GB PS3
it is really good. love playing it its so fun...........................................................
when i first bought it it keep shutting down on me
when i first purchased it it keep shutting down on me randomly and the disc case would not open. so overall terrible.
i like the play station 3 because it has great graphics, it has fun games to play, and it seems like you are there in the game playing as a person or a car or any thing that you are playing as.
Awesome can't wait to get saving money,plus I highly reccomend infamous +2. and uncharted 1,2 and 3.
