    topic header says it all looking to spend $130 to $150 on a Phat or Slim ps3 and was looking for advice on where to look, i'm guessing my only real option is to check pawnshops and test it out and check the system info for the firmware version or possibly craigslist.
    don't really trust ebay considering how iffy some of the refurbished consoles could be on there and not knowing the firmware version.
    anyway other than that, what's the latest CFW and such and how is compatibility with newer games?

    Basically any game released from Jan/Feb 2011 - Now will NOT work.
    Anything from Launch - January 2011 is guaranteed to work.

    It's basically a waiting game. Scene is still looking for latest keys. Until then, any game released from early this year to now will never work.
