Rated 10 out of 10 by SelectedStraw0 The greatest console I ever played
I just got this about a week ago and let me tell you, boy do i love this over the Xbox 360, it works perfectly to me, I like the free wifi without having to pay just to have access to the internet, it outbeats the 360, i do not like having to buy Xbox live after Xbox live card just to have access to the dang internet, lol. Plus the graphics is way better on the PS3 to me over the 360. It works real good to be a Premium Refurbished Certified PS3, it still works like it just come from Wal-Mart or Kmart. I won't regret uying it, And the best part, I am glad i got it with my all new GameStop credit card, thank you so much GameStop for coming up with that awesome offer to allow me to rebuild my credit through yall, i am loving it. The PS3 is cheaper than buying a ll new system when refurbish consoles works as good as new ones. I would recommend this PS3 to anyone. I ain't got no Flat Screen to experience High Definition images from the PS3, i will get one down the line

Rated 1 out of 10 by Kndyluver Very Disappointed
Purchased a refurbished 160GB Playstation 3 on Thursday 6-11-15 got it home took it out of the box and set it up. Unit required an update which I tried to install numerous times without success. I was unable to use the unit as it would try to reinstall the update after every restart. I will return the unit today Friday 6-12-15. Terrible experience for a first time buyer. Not likely to return after returning the defective unit.
Rated 4 out of 10 by ktt257 An okay console
I have owned a ps2 before and i loved it, so i decided to get a ps3. I have heard a lot of bad things about the ps3, but i decided to buy it to see for myself. I kind of regret it now considering that I just let my ps3 sit in a corner collecting dust. To be honest there aren't really that much good games on the ps3. None of my friends own a ps3 either. I really hate how the controller's triggers feel like. I also pretty much hate the analog sticks due to the fact that they feel a bit off. When ever i play a game the system makes a lot of noise like it's breaking the disc or something. The home page is pretty hard to navigate through and the playstation store takes forever to load at times. I really hate the fact that you can't play music while playing a game, especially when i'm grinding in jrpgs. The batteries the controllers also pretty much run out extremely fast. The system is called slim, but it's extremely huge and ugly looking. After about two years of owning it I only have about 5 games for it and rarely play on it. There's not much good exclusives if you ask me. I also never play online even if it's free since there's like no games to play online on. The positives I noticed about the ps3 so far is the keyboard they have.
Rated 10 out of 10 by KnightTime I Love it
Owning both a ps3 and a xbox 360 I liked both the first two years the xbox 360 was out it was my favorite then The playstation 3 just kept coming out with amazing and more amazing games like Uncharted, infamous, God of war the list goes on the graphics on the ps3 are great the only thing i notice on games like red dead and grand theft auto looked more detailed on the xbox 360 than ps3 but when you played a ps3 exclusive like uncharted series, little big planet etc etc.... they just look incredibly amazing I love it I made alot of memories with friends and I hate to see the ps3 coming to an end I love It and I am and always will be a PS3 fan <3
Rated 10 out of 10 Great price and works great
I bought this Refurb almost a year ago and couldn't be more happy with it. It worked like new out of the box and that's exactly what I was expecting. My expectations were for it to function as new and look almost as good as new and that's exactly what I got. I'm not sure what some of the poor review reviewers were going through or whether they were plants by MS (maybe a little too paranoid) but my point is I got what I expected and as of right now my PS3 runs as well as the first day I turned it on. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Save yourself some money and get the refurb.

I went to get another ps3 without going to buy a new one with a bundle that I don't want. So i saw these thinking it was a score. I just got it today and when i fired it up, it froze when it brought up cod black ops 2. Powered it down (that is all i could do) fired it up again. Played one multiplayer game and it froze. I have tried 3 times and my patience has run out. I got it because my other ps3 was overheating and shutting down after 15 minutes of gameplay. A very annoying defect in this system. Bite the bullet and spend $30 dollars more to get a new one.
Rated 6 out of 10 by donetfix System with many hardware errors
I bought this system makes less than 2 weeks, in principle all right, but this system is slightly incompatible with games as l.a. Noire, which so far is the only game that does not work very well, but my brother PS3 works fine, this system tends to envelope hot, perhaps due to its poor ventilation, just now the XMB froze everything was paralysed, all other games work very well...
I am concerned about this, I will make valid warranty 1 month I still have, I think EU should have bought a new PS3....
Rated 8 out of 10 by ObitotheBaddie It's Okay
The PS3 works perfectly for me, no overheating or disk scratching. My only problem with the PS3 is the PS store. I downloaded four episodes of DBZ, and when I tried to watch them, my PS3 said that I had to renew my liscense. What that meant was that I had to pay for the episodes again, which I ddin't do. I got a red controller with the refurbished model. My only problem with the controller is that once in awhile, it wouldn't work while I was playing a game.
Rated 2 out of 10 Horrible
