just picked up a PS3 160GB Slim

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
...for the low low price of $220.00 off Kijiji!! It was brand new, in-box and sealed. I always wanted a next-gen console for myself, and i found this one at an awesome price (saved $110.00 as opposed to buying it retail), and i pretty much had to pick it up. i needed something to play with my roommates in dorm for next year!

So i opened it, and it had Sony's 3.50 firmware on it. this thing is AWESOME i can't believe i didn't pick it up earlier!

so any good titles you guys suggest i pick up?

sweet! I;ll definitely check that out! I'm guessing killzone's the Halo counterpart for PS3

EDIT
i think the first God of War game was for the PS2, would i be able to pick up from God of War 2 and 3 and play it through, or would you suggest just starting from the first one?

I know this may sound crazy because you already have a pretty good pc but Call of Duty Black Ops. Its just a fun game with friends. Ninja Gaiden,MvsC3,Fight Night, and pretty much what he said.

Since i don't plan on playing online, I'm going to upgrade the 160GB HDD to a 750GB HDD so i can store my games on it. and if I buy a PS3 from the US and have it shipped to Canada, I would probably get hit with customs fees, which in the end would make it more expensive than what i got.
