So I recently traded a copy of Spider-Man for ps4 for a broken Phat PS4 12XX 500GB.
I knew getting it that it had not been turned on in a while and hoped it was 5.05 or below.(or at least the yucky 5.07) <----- as in cant upgrade HDD since no PUP

I took it apart, it had hundreds of dead roaches. I took of the case the the power supply and it had a nice big burn mark with a huge roach welded to it LOL. So I ordered a new PSU and cleaned the system,Gave the MOBO a rubbing alcohol bath ,New thermal paste and pads, New official PSU.....

After all that I turn it on and damn it !!! 6.20 --- I mean hell still a good deal- I paid $20 for the game I traded for the system, $24 for the PSU --it was also missing the HDD cover so I got a red one for $6 online. So a Fully working PS4 for $60 plus it had Black ops 3 in the disc drive.. not worth anything and I got it free on PSN Plus -- but what ever -still a bonus. No controllers came with it

I have a ps4 pro that is legit and have 3 controllers. I did have a PS4 Phat 5.05 that was K-Exploited but my dumbass pawned it and lost it.

Trust me after all the story crap I do have a question.....


I know Public K-ex is 5.05 , Private is K-ex 5.55 , and a useless to end user 6.20 webkit since it was patched in 6.50. I do understand this stuff----- kinda


So my question is pretty obvious to me , should I just leave it on 6.20 and put it in a closet or update it to latest and give it to my kids ?

Now my kids live with me and so does My Wife , So I am not seeking a gift to my kids. Just wondering if 6.20 pretty much has years to go like ps3 3.55 was to the unlikely 4.82.

Probably a impossible question to answer.

Should I put it away in a closet ? or update it and give it to my Girls ?


Guess this is more an opinions then a questions thread

Give it to your girls, or buy them a switch :)
Letting it rot in a closet is definitely a waste.


They got a nice handy dandy KOSMOS Switch on 8.1.0 down gradable to 5.1.0 :) New 3ds and a Wii-u all set to do the thing

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

For $60 I would update and play. 6.20 has no discernible advantage rn.


Of alot of people on here , I was hoping you would say some thing ...... As you know a lot -- they play my PS4 Pro and want a ps4 ----- So Ill just update and give it to them.

Ive got 13 disc games , 4 bought digital and 78ish PS-Plus games ..... So guess a hacked system dont mean much

hundreds of dead roaches.. the previous owner must had loaded the ps4 with sugar


North Carolina is a Roach Rich state .... I repair electronics for a living --- roaches are the most likely reason for damage in this state.

My kids could be categorized as lucky is the area, it's my hobby so we've got lots of bits lying around.

I didn't mean to brag at all , was just saying --- and yes they are spoiled --- never meant to brag tho --- they have a lot and I know other dont'

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

so in the end , a k-exploit could happen next week, next year or in 8 years who knows --- just update and let it do its job ...

I think the average GBATEMP regular has a healthy supply of surplus hardware :)
ps4 OWF (for online)
Switch 6.2 Atmo (never online, waiting for the lite for online tetris and pokemon)
2DS XL
New 3DS XL
O3DS XL OFW
2X O3DS
DSI XL
DSI
DS Lite (OFW)
2X GBA (OFW, one is my first nintendo)
Gameboy Color
Gameboy (the grey brick)
An assortment of flashcards/flashme
Had lot's more but a part of my stuff was stolen :(
I gave away the unused Wii to a less fortunate mate of mine.

Very important: Kids are raised knowing never to update anything...

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    lmao
  • BakerMan @ BakerMan:
    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space
