PlayStation 3 500GB System (Supercharged Refurbished)
My household is a big Nintendo fan, and to be honest, the wii graphics suck. I'm looking at ps3's now, and this 500GB system is only $40 more than a 80GB system on gamestop. This particular bundle includes HDMI, while the other only has standard. I would highly recommend this if you are a more serious gamer like myself. On another note, the bundle isn't "Supercharged" - it's just the name of the group or company that refurbished the ps3.
What your getting
ps3 (smallest hd) = 209.00
media remote kit = 17.00
system stand/recharge = 17.00
western digital 500gb hd = 60.00
TOTAL: 303.00 without tax
What you are paying a extra 47.00 (preowned) or 97.00 (new):
HDMI CORD & a "SUPERCHARGED" ps3 skin
Best buy ever
So what if it is a refurb at least I'll have the only one in pa and the only one in a 100 mile radius. Ps3 rocks
Don' t listen to others
I did not buy this for me its for a friend, but I do have a refurbished ps3 I have had it for 3 yrs without any problems so don't believe the hype It is true your taking a chance but that's what warranties are for btw it comes with a year warranty I also have a 500gb hard drive and please don't let anyone tell u your never going to use 500 gb if u didn't think you would you would not be looking at this one with the 70 to 80 movies 500 tv shows and 10,000 songs I only have 20gb left no one can tell u how much of your hd you will use but you also this has 4 USB ports good luck buying a new ps3 with that, this is not bad I only wish they had this 3 yrs ago so I could have brought this unit as a whole instead of piece by piece don't listen to the Microsoft fanboys or ps3 haters this is a good buy
Should i sell my xbox for this ps3?
I got a Gears of War 3 limited edition XBOX 360 that has 320 GBHD, but im getting bord of it. Should i sell my xbox and buy this Supercharged Playstation 3? or just keep my xbox?
even if refurbished
i see no problem here with this system, its probably know as a refurbished because of the hdd swap to a 500 gb scorpio, which in its self is a 80-90 dollar hdd (at best buy), it also comes with a good hdmi cable and a stand for your ps3 that has controller chargers built in, for 350 dollars i think this is worth the buy especially for someone who is going to buy a system for a HD tv to use for downloading movies and play games in blu ray HD, it also comes with a 1 year warranty, so that way if it breaks because of a mechanical issue you get a new one. dont let others discourage you on this thing, it may not be "supercharged" but it is definitely an overhauled system
Not worth it..
The only good thing is the 4 USB ports. I hade a old 80GB ps3 that was bundled with MGS4 back in 07 and it recently died 4 days ago which is not bad giving the fact that it lasted 5 years but anyways this ps3 isnt supercharged at all whatsoever my old ps3 had a 750GB 5900 rpm HDD and ps3's cant have anything higher than 5900 rpm anyways. So go buy a new ps3 cheaper and well worth it.
Review 2.0: Not impressed still
Here's the thing, I don't like refurbished items. They are not the same quality as a brand new console. Someone in another review tried to imply that refurbished and used are two different things; and that is simply not true. Look on this page and the only option is to buy this console "used." My recommendation is to buy any NEW PS3, and put in a 500 GB Hard Drive of your choice which costs roughly $100. Sure, this deal includes some other stuff, which to me is not very valuable. All in all, you could spend $200 on a NEW console, and $100 on a hard drive and save $50. And believe me, replacing a hard drive is a piece of cake. The only challenge is if you want to move files from one PS3's HDD onto another. Then you just need a FAT32 HDD to backup all of your files to. Afterwards, go to Playstation's site and they easily explain the process.
Supercharged is a oxymoron. its a Off-brand Ps3 system Not made by sony! ill tell you why its a oxymoron, it says Supercharged ps3 right; They Want To Say Supercharged as in power wise. But they cant because its not. So They Said Supercharged BRAND!!!!! Ps3!!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!
Well, to start off, i hope you giys know the difference between a REFURBLISHED PS3 and a PRE-OWNED PS3. Anyway, this deal looks pretty amazing. But everything this deal has to offer, I already have. But take this message from a professional gamer, I do recommend this product if you dont already have a PS3.
