How to install CFW on your PS3 and set it up video guide


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

I have an 80GB fat PS3 with a busted Blu-Ray drive and a problem where it just shuts down spontaneously when playing processor-intensive games like Gran Turismo 6.


I installed CFW on it and now I'm using it to play a range of PSN arcade-style games from the HDD (lots of shoot-em-ups, re-imaginings of classics, etc.).  I have a custom arcade controls setup.  The lower load of these games does not seem to trigger the shutdown issue.  This has been tons of fun and I'm very happy to have found a use for this console, which I thought was a brick.
