    On ebay I noticed that you can buy demo PS3s for about 160.00 The seller seems reputible and claims they are constructed more soundly than retail PS3s, and should play games and blu-rays with no problems.

    They are not backward compadable and cannot access the playstation store. So I was thinking about getting one of these demo Ps3s, but I am not sure whether jailbreak will work on it.

    Please let me know what you think.

    The problem would lie in the firmware but then again you should be able to download it online. It should work I guess you'll never know until you try. Also try craigslist since good deals for ps3 pop up sometimes. Trust me I bought my ds and wii for less then 50% of retail with some extra stuff.

    It is to risky since there is a chance you cannot upgrade the firmware.

    Then again you could buy a ps3 from a store put that ps3 in and do that but that seem unethical.

    do not get demo ps3's
    alot of the features are locked and the firmware cannot be updated
    and because of that they cannot play new games

    theres a reason why its cheap

    Well if you can't upgrade the firmware and assuming it isn't on 3.4.1 you can safely assume as long the current PS3jailbreak isn't modded to work on other firmwares you pretty much can't use it. So don't get it.

    His percentage doesn't include the 13 which have been revised. I've seen people on eBay with better feedback who sell fake memory cards day in, day out.
