pos bidding on a ps3 80gb - in the listing they say it has 4 usb ports etc... so is this the one with bc? is there a way to check whether its a pal uk or ntsc us?

from listing:

'I belive it is a 80 gb model as i was told in shop but wouldn't know either way, what i do know is it has: 4x usb ports on front and 3 card slots on front under flap, on a Google forum it has been confirmed if it has these then it is a 80 gb.'

If its 80gb it'l be a US model. If it was 60gb it would be a UK model. But since its 80gb console with 4 usb ports and card readers it will only play american PS2 games and DVDs as that is still region locked.

Someone please correct me if im wrong.

I believe that makes it a UK 60GB launch model.

7 - Year of manufacture 07
A - Quarter 1

American consoles have the full date of manufacture on the bottom.

Meh. I'd just buy a new one...


Is getting PS2 BC worth buying second hand from eBay - especially if you don't even have any PS2 games?


4 USB ports... you can always use a hub or something to give you more than 2 if you get a current version PS3.
