    Hey was just wondering if its possible to get a PS3 chipped or if anyone has their ps3 chipped?

    Games are so expensive and I cannot afford them anymore. Its really annoying because my mate has a chipped xbox 360 and gets his games for a fiver each!

    Pretty much sums it up. Who has a blu-ray writer? Who's going to risk frying a £300 console?

    Maybe so, but he can't play on Live.

    Fiver each? He is being robbed.

    And mikeyd85, it doesn't stop you playing on live.

    My first PS was a chipped PS2, I think it was about £100, back in the day.

    And how many times have they said things like that before? They have tried it countless times but are always one step behind.

    Honestly, I don't know.

    What I can say is that it certainly worked on my cousins!

    I'd be more worried about the 360's hardware record to be honest. The whole "red ring of death" thing. Presumably, chipping or modifying your console voids any warranty you had with the retailer / microsoft so if it breaks... you have no choice but to buy a new one.

    Or buy a kit from ebay for £3.99 and fix it yourself in under 30 minutes, like I did, as opposed to sending it away for 2 weeks

    Yeah I see what you mean about risking voiding the warranty but the guy who did my friend's xbox 360 and his ps2 before that always fixed any problems free of charge. So if he learned how to do a ps3 I would be safe in the knowledge that any problems would be sorted by him.

    Unless he got hit by a bus! Then you'd be down one 360. A tragedy.

    There aren't any games to bother pirating on the PS3.

    I wouldn't waste your time.

    £22 - motorstorm 2, eBAY
    £30 - MGS4 - Shopto
    £30 - GTA 4 - Amazon
    £27 - PES 2009 - Asda, in store
    £10 - Oblivion - Currys, in store

    All bought 7-10 days after release, apart from Oblivion

    You just have to shop around really to get good deals, gta 4 and mgs4 are under £20 quid now, I saw LBP for £25 recently as well

    No, you cannot get a chipped PS3. If you want to get cheaper games, wait a while before you buy them, or get a job so you can afford them. Relatively simple.

    If you can't afford the games, don't buy them. It's really that simple.
