Rick Dangerous Posted December 2, 2020 Share Posted December 2, 2020 Got this 20GB Launch PS3 yesterday off Craigslist for $60 untested. Works great, very little use on the unit. The story of the guy who owned it: "I was at IBM when the PS3 Processor chip was developed. Then, the processor was called STI; it was developed by Sony-Toshiba-IBM joint venture. Everyone on the team got a PS3. I was in the test engineering group. I got the thing home and never used it. Im happy to find s good home for it. The first few processor made were real power-pigs. Some would get so hot the solder balls would melt off the devices. That same processor was also used in flight simulators, commercial and military application... so I'm told." Pulled the 1TB HDD from my PS4 Pro (upgrading that to 2TB) and installed/formatted it, updated PS3 firmware with the latest 2020 build, updated wallpaper, now need to get it upstairs and hooked up to ethernet since this model doesn't have Wifi. Want to download my digital games from the PS Store while they are still available. Psyched to get one of these again, have had two 60GB models die on me, hoping this one lasts for a good while! Looks like the PS3 Super Slim upstairs will be going into retirement/storage for a little while I think the black on black looks pretty sharp! 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
