I have been wanting a PS3 for a long time. I found one on Ebay for 175$ (basicially for 225$ because I have to pay to have the laser fixed) So its a 40GB PS3, Fat, Used, No controller for 225$. After doing my research I can see that this a major rip off. When I can buy a new PS3, 160GB, with a controller for 250$. And just wait for an exploit if it is on 3.7 or 4.0 firmware. After telling him I wasn't interested he tried persuading me saying: I figured the "very low fault tolerance" was a load of bull but I figured I would ask here. I asked him how much for a 160GB to be installed and he said 100$, so if I do end up buying it I will definitely be doing it my self. I'm guessing he is making the price so high because of it running the 3.55 firmware.
