Kinect has been hacked and can be used on PC and PS3 lol I might just run with both, but im not sure, the PS3 is more of a media centre/gaming/movies whereas the 360 is gaming

Right, it seems im not 'thinking' about getting one of these, my friend has just given me hers with loads of games lol its apparently a 40GB console, but has ethernet etc etc, I am going to get a new HDD and replace it in the caddy, do I need to add anything onto it to get it to run the main screen or does that automatically download?

It should rebuild its own data base. Just to be on the safe side, make sure you save that old 40GB HDD, as sometimes PS3 can throw and error saying that it can not start due to not having original hdd in it.

You have to start the system up in SD mode and change the settings to HDMI if it hasn't been set before hand. The component out is an RF adapter gizmo, luckily standard on Playstation consoles since the original so its quite cheap. Any retail electronics store should sell them for 5-10$.

It seems that 1 of my HDMI ports on the back of my TV had gone, I managed to find a second one I didn't know was there lol result! PS3 is running as it should, just going to back everything up and reformat it all to a fresh and start again, I had played on this console before, but I think I will start from the beginning again

What is the warranty lenght on them? The front of the case is slightly scratched and I want to replace/mod it, but the warrenty sticker is on it meaning I can't get to the torx screw.

Ah ok, I will check, I don't think it is within warranty anymore, just played a PS1 game in it to check its compatability hehe

If it is out of warranty would it be an idea to take it apart and clean the heatsinks etc? Not sure if there are any software tweeks to up the fan speed a bit, seems fairly hot, I have it on end as the base has no cooling intakes.

Should I look at any cooling mods if I were to run this as a folding rig?

PS3 for folding? Uh yes you'll definitely want to look into some cooling mods. At the very least do the fan speed mod with some AS5 or similar TIM. Also FYI if you're using your PS3 for Blu Rays a lot it would be a good idea to look into cooling mods as they seem to get the hottest playing Blu Rays.
