How can you tell what firmware a ps3 has by its box?
I'm looking to buy a few 3.15 fat ps3s (for a super computer/modifying). So like the psp, how can you tell what firmware it has by what's written on the box?
At least when I do this I can finally update my personal ps3 and play some call of duty
Thanks to egohot I haven't been able to level up my 10th prestige
Obviously, if it's been sat in a box unused for the last 4 months, it will be fine. If it's been used more recently than that, probably not.
Your best bet is to make it a condition of sale that you can inspect it when it's switched on and plugged into a TV.
i'll just buy one from a pawn broker and have them "test" it etc.
it only take mere minutes to verify the firmware version. make sure its what you want before you get it. i just missed out on a 60gb 4 usb BC ps3 for 130$ US craigslist post delays suck. make sure its what your expecting before you buy since the downgrade option dosent exist as of yet. if ya just wanna play COD the buy another ps3 slim or used and just upgrade it and keep your original for mod purposes.
