Going to buy a PS3/Xbox360. Any advice?

Postby Krillin » Sun Jul 15, 2018 6:29 pm

Just got a couple of games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (for free) but I don’t have the consoles yet so I’m currently looking for good deals around my area.

Is there anything I should be especially aware of? Are there console models/versions I should avoid? Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Don't go for both of the launch versions of the PS3/Xbox 360. Due to their poor design, they overheat quick.

These ones.

The PS3 slim and Xbox 360 S are the ones to look out for since those are better than the 1st and its 3rd iterations (PS3 superslim/ Xbox 360 E model).

I'd recommend s Slim (not a Super Slim) PS3 & a Jasper Xbox 360. I've noticed that Xbox 360 Slim models load the dashboard stuff VERY slowly. I have had 2 (shiny & matte black), both of which have suffered from this. I also have an E model, but it's in the box & I haven't used it much. I did buy a Jasper Call of Duty MW2 console from Goodwill & it loads the dashboard up quickly & isn't slow when showing your downloaded games, looking at storage, etc.

You can save money by getting the games on pc instead.Assuming your pc can play them & aren't locked to consoles only..
Tell us more in regards to any modding you may do & i don' mean just flashing the 360 dvd drive to play backups.I have 0 knowledge on ps3 however my 360 knowledge is extensive even if i say so myself,well nobody else round here will hahahaha
rgh chip in a fat or slim 360 allows the following:
playing online in free servers
play games direct from internal & eternal hdd
ftp like the original xbox
custom dashes like freestyledash or the latest 7b aurora
rgh chip avoids need of a dvd drive
see youtube on vids it will give you an idea of modded ps3's or 360's

For PS3:

If you want the Vanilla experience go for a super slim. if you want an advanced CFW experience go for the slim before the super slim.

For Xbox 360:

make sure you get the S or the E models. not the launch ones. and make sure you get a power supply that works.


Emulation for both of them are still broken atm so your better off finding a PC version of the games that were on 360 and PS3.

Despite the loudness,I prefer the og's.They are both more beauiful,and cheaper.Also if you buy an original ps3,look for an 60gb one,its hard to find,but worth it.

This^^. If you think you might go the modding route, PS3's are ridiculously easy to soft mod now. Like Kitty said, look for a slim CECH-2XXX, try to avoid CECH-25xx and CECH-3XXX models.
