    I'm not a gamer at all, the last game I played was GTA4 n before that San Andreas

    Basically, the only games I ever liked and played are GTAs

    Now I wanna buy a used ps3 just to beat GTA5 coz I ain't play that yet and then I plan on selling it again

    How can I know the ps3 I wanna buy is in solid condition tho?? What do I ask about? I know NOTHING about video games n s***

    Just make sure the disc drive works and the power is fine.

    As far as I recall (Xbox owner) the PS3 had that yellow light of death stuff but that was fixed quickly.

    Why should I save up for that expensive ass new console just to beat the game in 2 weeks and sell it again

  • May 7, 2020

    If you really only want to play this one game then get the ps3

    Check all the button sensors
    Make sure it runs right
    Check the controller buttons

    Get a PS4 if you see yourself getting another game in the future plus you could prolly buy its for a decent price now

    cause if you buy the console first week, beat the game within 2 more, & try to sell it again with the OG packaging & label it as "like new" in the selling title, you would probably lose less than you would buying a ps3

    Just cop one

    I remember buying one of those fat PS3s with a couple games, a controller, some other peripherals for like 90 bucks or less... in 2013

    Go on Craigslist and only do business with people who provide great pictures and can communicate like they did reasonably well in education and you'll be fine

    Keep in mind those PlayStations double as BluRay/media players and media servers if you don't think you'll use the game function, but it sounds like you don't care about that

    I don't think that he can't get something better I think he's saying that he doesn't see the point in spending lots of money to play one game when he can pay less to play it

    He’s saying it’s a waste of money to get something more expensive that he’s just gonna resell. Sounds like he’s not “getting money” to me

  • Jul 17, 2020

    OP, you should really value yourself more than this.

    Also, you're gonna end up losing money with your plan. Who are you gonna sell a ps3 to for a profit in 2020 other than yourself?? LMAO

    power edge
    old dell servers, you can find them loaded with dual cpus and ram for cheap on offer up and craigslist

    they make fast and reliable media servers once you install ubuntu or freenas

    depends on the game should work with most tho, i’d definitely go with a lil newer single cpu model if your going to do a game server usually game servers run much better on single cpu model

    i personally would never run old server hardware for a server though long term but just to f*** around with old hardware can be fun

    you can get something far smaller with features like intel quick sync for media and faster cpu cores for a gaming server if your willing to spend $150 more on an 8th gen i3 build and the power use and heat output is 1/20th so long term you’ll save money in electricity

  • whatever you do don’t buy the original fat ps3 s*** will break down in less than a month
