    Is a PS3 worth it? How easily is it hack-able? Fat or Slim? Small HDD or large?

    PS3 worth it?- YESSSSS
    How easy it to hack- If the FW is 3.55, piece of piss. If not than you'll need to downgrade with the EZ Flasher which isn't so easy.
    Fat or Slim- Slim
    Small HDD or large- Large

    Just get a PS3 and just stay legit with it is my suggestion.

    If there are a lot of games on it that you want, and you have the money for games, buy it and keep it legit. If you're just looking to pirate games, don't bother. It's still too expensive to worth bricking.

    Ive grown up with Nintendo and Nintendo only, but then I kinda wanted something more so I went for a Ps3. Let me tell you buddy if you have an Hdtv you will be amazed my friend not just in quality and sound but in gameplay to. So go for it, wont dissapoint you.

    I had all 3 consoles at the same time, PS3, 360 and a Wii.

    I've only kept the PS3, as that was the only console i was playing, the other two were gathering dust.

    If you already have the 360 then i dunno, guess it depends on how bad you wanna play the exclusives, as most releases are multi-platform.

    It's getting a bit old now.... the next gen is only a year-n-a-bit off now, but if you can find one on the cheap.... Do you have a 360? Owning both myself there isn't a great deal separating the 2, and if you're happy with the 360 you might not be as impressed with a PS3 at this time.... Worth it for its exclusive games though - if you're green with envy looking at those then sure, grab the slim and as big an hd as possible!

    What are the advantages of having a larger HDD on a PS3? And why slim? I thought fat would be cheaper.

    phat models r very prone to ylod almost to the extent of rrod for early 360s. a large hdd is a must for the ps3 since many games have mandatory installs that can be several gigs per game.

    The only reason why I would say to get a bigger HDD is because if you have PS+ like me, you run out of room quick. Hell, I only have 20 games in my folder, and one or 2 movies on my HDD and I have like 30 gigs lift.

    Only the first few batches which had cooling issues, mind you, and YLOD can be easily prevented as long as the PS3 is properly ventilated and has enough space around it. If you're truly worried about it, simply install copper shims on the processor and the GPU - it's a simple process and it'll effectively cool the console down.
