I sold mine for a ps4 and quickly started looking for a ps3. Finally got a 500gb and brothas! I love that joker so many backlogged and never experienced games.

Multiplats got to my 4kpc but I can still dig old games.

Glad you got one....you should of tried to get the original 60GIG dude! :)

The was truly the best one, I installed a 1Tb drive in mines. and the amount of games I have on there from PS+ is insane and I still to this day haven't finished them all (got about 35+ on there).

Its all good.
