so here my issue.. i have the old beast.. the best PS3 ever.. the CECHE-01.. backplay, 4 usbs, card reader.. biggest hard drive, best processor, all that jazz.. BUT.. i think i scratched the tracks on the cpu.. SO.. a friend of mine has a CECHA-01 that i want to rob teh cpus from and have them reballed onto mine CECHE-01.. ive already looked into it and they both use the same precessor.. my question here is..
Do the CPUs control the backwards compatibility of a console?
because, of the 5 PS3's i own.. my original is the ONLY one that has it. which is the one i need the CPUs replaced on.. so you can understand why i'm going through the hassle.. and i'm not trying to be rude here.. but i don't want to hear anything about "oh with all that work you could buy a new slim" PLEASE... i need your help.. thank you in advance to all who can.
