It might be cheaper to get a US PS3 and the game?
I need firmware 3.55 or lower right?
Any idea how to find such a PS3 easily?
I wanna play a certain game in English and am willing to dish out big dosh to do so.
The game is not officialy released in English, fantranslation.
Well it's in English but on another console with A LOT less content.
Easiest way would to be to buy one off ebay.
Yes and you would have to install it yourself but it is very easy to do so. I'm sure there is a guide or two on this site somewhere.
I searched hacked PS3 and got nothing.
What should I search for?
I got mine off ebay, search for Sony Playstation Console-3.55. You should get ones called Playstation 3 Slim Console-3.55 or Below.
The seller is: orkmastermcgee
I got a PS3 Slim 120gb Console that has 3.55 OFW on it (cech-2001A). Its used, very good condition. He ships from NY, it came with one six axis controller and a Standard Def a/v cable, and he threw in an HDMI cable, all for $299.99. It came via Fed ex, and required a signature.
Folish people listen to what new members with 2 posts recommend them
It's not very wise to doubt them either. orkmastermcgee is really a seller on eBAY with good feedback. He sells PS3 Slims/Phats on 3.55 and offers a 120 day repair warranty. If bearpowers is will to pay $310 shipped for a 120GB PS3 on 3.55 then I'd go with him. Not every new member is a spambot, and should be treated with respect regardless of their post count.
I started off with 0 posts, too...
You could also check the trading forums.
^^^^^this. he doesn't sell hacked systems but hackable ones which gets around ebay's policies. I bought my jtaggable 360 and exploitable ps3 from him. and, both systems continue to run flawlessly. his prices with the ps3 r going up though due to exploitable ones becoming more and more rare.
Anyone know of a sure fire say to get a 3.55 in the UK? Searching Ebay has produced little.
my only suggestion is not to be direct with ebay. search ps3 firmware or something of that nature. other than that, I have no idea as I'm in the states.
Don't buy from Orkmastermcgee...300$ for a hackable PS3 is a sin, even this late. Rare? No. Consider that every 120GB PS3 they ever manufactured, as well as a large portion of all 160GB PS3, and even quite a few 320GB PS3 are essentially CFW capable. Don't buy one on 3.55 unless you can get it for under 225$, anything higher and you're paying a "convenience fee". Downgrade service is the way to go.
^^yeah true ,that is really high , but a an exploitable console on a ofw over 3.55 for 225 is not such a good deal either ,you would still need to spend 70$ for a e3 flasher to downgrade , i have seen 3.55 ps3 on ebay for for that price ,but it hardly matters now ,cobra has their device coming out that works on all models
no solder easy to install ,and a beter invetment and easier install than a e3 flasher
I agree 100%. What I'm saying is, if the console has already been downgraded/is still on 3.55 or lower, 225$ would be the reasonable price ceiling. 300$ is greed. Also, I thought Cobra disappeared? Hasn't it been 5 months since anyone has heard from them?
Wow..anyone interested, Cobra came back to life 2 days ago...check it out..
Okay, delete first post takes out all the context...
wow, how did i not know about this ODDE?
would be sick to have homebrew running on my ultraslim :o
