PS3 phat (not the Backwards compatible one) 160 GB with uncharted and all the controllers and wires for only $274 at a local store. its used, but still boxed apparently. Sounds almost too good to be true. Might get this instead of the slim, i really have no idea where to put my savings now lol

u think its better than getting a slim to get this deal? or is the slim really much improved and worth sticking with for my purchase?

wow thats a great deal, cuz think about it, a ps3 slim 120 gb is 300, uncharted is 60, and 1 extra controller is 50 which is a total of 410...u save 10 dollars and get 130 extra gigs of hardrive. thats a great deal, if u have 500 bucks to spend, i for one think i will take my 274 dollar deal and by a used 2nd controller for 15-20 bucks

that is also a great deal but the uncharted deal is only in uk so unless you plan to go there or get it off ebay you can't get it

DaDun get the slim brand new.You can't beat that 299 price dude. I would get a ps3 slim at 299 and go ahead and spend an extra 100$ on a 500 gig labtop harddrive( a monkey could install it so you can too), that way you'll never need to upgrade it. Plus with all that memory you can keep movies and demos that you like on your harddrive with out having to worry about deleting them when you run out of memory. Oh and have plenty of room for DLC and PSN games, there are a bunch of great titles on it so go ahead and buy a 20$ psn card with the purchase of your ps3. Get ready to spend 400$ to start you off especially if you want another controller. It sounds like alot and it is but trust me you'll have the biggest grin once you get home and start playing that wonderful,sexy,powerful machine. 80gigs is a tease man you'll see once you get into the world of sony

@Castle i c i c, the uncharted 1 wasnt my real motivation to buy the 160, just the nice price

@Odd69 OK ill prolly do that BUT if another 160gb fat one comes in at a $275 pricetag again u wud say its better to get that than a slim one right? And how much quieter is it for blu ray, considerably, cuz i thot the fat one was already quiet?

Almost any fat is better than a Slim, seriously... the 80GB one is not that bad of a deal, except for the scratch you say it has... but as long as it's only aesthetic, it isn't that important...

You can easily upgrade the HDD, and HDD prices are quite low, so don't base your purchase on that...you could always upgrade the HDD later, they have been on a price downhill ever since the introduction of SSD

man its so weird, to me 80GB sounds like so much, wud i really need to update the hardrive? is like every game safe like 2 GB or sumthing? anyway i plan on capitalizing on a 160GB deal if they get another one and if not i dunt know, i really wish they had kept the slim with the old finish, the matte to me makes it look so cheap, performance for both models is identical right?

Blu-Rays load slightly faster on Slim, Games work slightly faster on Phat...

You don't need to upgrade the HDD if you don't need to... I still have plenty of space, even after I made the Linux partition and installed it...

YOu can transfer from itunes to a usb which you can then transfer to the ps3

I thought you could just plug the iPod to a USB port on the PS3 and play music from it, just like on the 360, never tried though...

If it can't be done, you should just put the CDs on the PS3 and rip them from there... if they are iTunes purchases, simply make a backup of them (you MUST have a backup afterall! lol)
