Good price for a stripped down ps3.


Great value if replacing old ps3 with ylod. Just pull old HD and install with adapter.About me... Casual gamer

Great Birthday Gift


I purchased the Playstation as a gift since the PS4 was unavailable on the website and in stores. The gift was well received and appreciated and is functioning wellAbout me... Family user, parent

It allows my college age child to stream programs and play games and disconnect from the rat race we live in

Seems lightweight compared to her step fathers
