post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy a ps3 really soon and i have a question:
a guy that sells ps3's told me that the 40gb models has software problems and bricks for no apparent reason randomly(i am not buying from that guy),he told me to search in ps3 forums to see that it was true.
is it true?

I'd say go for it if it's a good price. The ps3's a great system - I have an 80gb model and absolutely love it

Does your power go out a lot? Otherwise I wouldn't worry.
