Thanks Duwen and Blakd3th for the firmware info.

I've never touched a PS3 in my life so that's how noob I am. Did the PS3 force the firmware updates or were they optional? I've seen a couple of fat PS3's in my local secondhand store (www.cex.co.uk) so I may take a chance in the hope they have old firmware on them.

To add to the games list: Has anyone played Scott Pilgrim vs The World? I've played it on RPSC3 and I like it a lot but can only play at 50fps with stutters :-(

The firmware updates could either be turned off or set to auto update... so, it's a bit hit and miss on buying a second hand unit - especially from CEX as I believe they're general policy is to update any consoles they get in (same goes for Game - store staff told me as much a few years back when I was looking for an exploitable 3DS).

As for Scott Pilgrim vs The World; I've only played it on my X360 (legit download) and it plays fine. It was pulled from digital distribution after licenses expired, so the only way you can play it now (on actual console hardware) is to buy a second hand unit which includes a profile that purchased it or via cfw.

Thanks Duwen for the info.

Just this morning, I saw a fairly clean and tidy looking Slim 120gb for sale in my local Cash Converters for £60 so I may take a chance. It's not a great deal of money to lose if it's not Jailbreak Firmware. Fingers crossed that Cash Converters may not update them. I think I'm gonna go back tommorow morning and get it. I can't wait :-)
