I've got a red laser pen, but a blu laser gun is just quailty.

True, though I think the modifications DO look that hard.

Now there is a PS3 missing it's laser!


No, the guy said on the video that he taked just a blu-ray unit from PS3, for 45 bucks... So it's from a PS3 that broke, or some part dealer, or, who knows... What wouldn't make any sense is open up a PS3 to remove blu-ray parts and sell it for $45.
