this thread is old, ignore it
your best bet is ebay. I'm not sure of the price, but a little more than a normal used system. I wouldn't recommend a phat though since ylod. u can play most ps2 games on a non-bc system thanks to cfw.
Got a PS3 slim on 3.55 for about 170 shipped on ebay.
NOTE - This came with all the cables plus the controller. and 120gb HDD. If you are just getting the console about 140 I say is far.
was it working well? like weird fan noises, slowdowns, etc.
You can play a few and some of them aren't too slow or glitchy.
I've had a 160gb 3.55 PS3 on ebay for ~£100 including shipping for ages and everybody wants me to drop the price (which I'm prepared to, but they want it cheaper than what unmodded PS3's are going for on ebay).
What do you mean by weird fan noises? ps3 fans always sound too loud and they get louder with age.
i brought ps3 slim from second hand website for around 700 ILS (200$). it came with firmware 2.85, all the cables, one controller and a game. there was one on ebay. 120gb slim model for around 300$ brand new but i don't think it's there anymore. check on ebay every day. i'm sure someday one of them will pop there for descent price. if you want it in "used" condition then there are plenty of them with firmware 3.55 on ebay.
Everything worked great no issues to report. What do you want to do with it?
I want homebrew so that I can play my ps2 games on ps3, and also play emulators on ps3. But I wanted a ps3 in general since ps4 is not backwards compatible.
Try Pawn shop. I bought the version 3.41 about 6 years ago.
i tried to play some of the ps2 games on the ps3. some of them worked great. others worked pretty terrible.
but all the games looked pretty bad on my tv.
for comparison. gamecube games looks much better on the wii u than ps2 games on the ps3.
I looked at the compatibility list and from what I can tell, only tony hawk games were not working. what games did you try?
u can play more than a few ps2 games.
do you know where I can find compatibility list? the one I found says that all games are working with the exception of buzz and the tony hawk series
I'm not sure as I've never used it. around 80% of games should work, but not all work perfectly. all the games I've tested worked fine, but I didn't test hundreds. I was just testing games as ps2 classics which is no longer needed. the netemu ps2 emulator, which is what u'll be using for ps2 games on a slim, hasn't been completely reverse engineered. the ps3 actually has 3 ps2 emulators on it - for bc, - for semi-bc, and for ps2 classics. the ps2 classics emulator isn't fully optimized for all games which is y some work and others don't. I'm not sure if 100% compatibility is doable or not, but a lot of cool things, such as seeing your temps in game, have been added to the emulator.
does ape escape 2 and 3 work? and crash twinsanity?
this might have the games: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/PS2_Classics_Emulator_Compatibility_List
not all games from all regions have been tested, but as u can see a lot of games work and some have minor hiccups but ultimately work as well.
Crash Twinsanity crashes on main menu on NTSC-U and PAL. Even tried it myself.
thanks for letting me know.
I'd personally suggest a ps2 for ps2 games, 'cause the old, phat ps3s were not very well made. they're as prone to failure as the old 360s. my first ps3 was a phat, bc system and it failed within eight minutes of using it before cfw existed and using swap discs was a thing.
yeah I figured, is there any thing worth it for jailbroken e3? so far we have a ps2 emulator that doesn't always work and retroarch which is on every console pretty much
