    i want to buy a used ps3 but i ask people what firmware version they are on and none of them can tell me. so if anyone knows how to do it i will take that and tell them prospective sellers how to do it. thanks in advance.

    No problem mate. BTW, I seem to have a misunderstanding of the term "trolling". By my reckoning, its someone who offers nothing constructive, but clearly thats not what you're saying as I told you EXACTLY what you asked, so could you please give me a better definition? Thanks.

    ok ok dude i am not trying to be an a$$ and apparently you weren't either. fact is i googled it with slightly different terms than you did so i can see why we had different results. fact is - it should not have been that hard for me to find those simple steps. i actually went to a mall - in down town philly - the gallery - which has an underground videogame store. they had a used ps3 slim (which i really didnt want but it had a 250 GB) and me and the store manager figured out how to find it. he actually opened the used box and hooked up the system so that i could see the firmware. 3.21...-- i am good
