    So im gonna be getting a 250gb ps3 slim from gamestop, what are the chances itll be on less than 4.83? and before anyone says dont get one from gamestop, im getting it because if it doesnt work out, i can just drive back to gamestop and return it.

    I dont live in the US or Canada area,not even in US Soil, but from what ive heard from people, Gamestop its notorious for screwing people over with theyre Pre-Owned or Refurbished PlayStation3s, you are basically paying a premium price for a device that i asure you they didnt even bother do maintenance in the first place.

    Here in Portugal,we have shops, sort like GameStop, but with more stuff, but the practice its the same, shady stuff, overpriced hardware, only to find out that the unit fails within a week, it happend to me personally, and to many of my friends, whom were intrested for PS3s,but wanted some sort of a warranty, in case it the unit failed.

    There its no chance, whenever the unit can be on 4.82, you need to make sure it is, which its always a risk, and for what specific exploit you wish to install, that its CFW or HAN, because saying a 250Gb PS3 its not enough, you need to dig deeper to find the model and compatible firmware, and i am sure if the unit isnt on 4.82 or it isnt a, lets say a CFW compatible machine, i am sure 99.9% that GameStop wont accept you return, unless the machine its broken (i could be wrong).

    My suggestion? Find one from places like eBay,Amazon,Craigslist,Kijiji, Garage Sales, Pawn Shops, usually you can get a sweet deal, for a value that seems acceptable, i personally wouldnt trust GameStop if i were you ;)

    Hope it helps

    they update all consoles before sale,so customer can play the latest games and log into psn,they dont want people complaining about having to up date. game stop is way over priced. take naked_snake1995. advice!

    Ive bought a few used consoles from gamestop's. I've never had a problem with any of them. You have 7 days to get your money back, and I think 14 to exchange

    Honestly I'd just be up front with them about it. To gamestop, a sale is a sale, and if they're wanting to do their job, just tell them you're looking for a PS3 with a specific firmware. I live in a small rural county in east KY, so this may not be the case elsewhere. I also went to highschool with a few of the employees, as well as at other shops that deal with game consoles and PC repairs.
    Just don't start talking about things that could make them worry about losing business, if you know what I mean.

    You have every right to know exactly what you're getting before you pay for it. They can easily check it for you, as they check any game console that's brought in. As long as they can potentially make the sale, they're doing their job and shouldn't be worried about what you plan on doing with it. You'd be suprised the people that work at GameStop that partake in the scene as well lol.

    might as well try ebay. I mean most ps3s out there are hackable. if you look at the ps4, maybe half, if not more, are the same way yet the cost for one of those is barely beyond used.

    Honestly, I've heard nothing but bad things about Gamestop. We don't have them here in the UK; we have Game and we used to have Gamestation and my personal favourite, Grainger Games, which sadly went out of business last year. I'm sure @Cypher_CG89 will also remember them fondly, with him being from the North East. We still have CEX aka Entertainment Exchange and Game, but I was never really a fan of their stores.

    With what I previously said, I do agree that GameStop does run a shitty business. Ripoff prices for games, barely a difference in price between New and Used/Refurbished systems. It's a decent place to pick up some used games, but I hate how they stick the stickers on the original cases, it destroys the plastic when you try to peel them off.
    I just personally know a couple employees at my GameStop that I get along with, but when it comes to the corporate decisions, I'm with you on that.

    CEX in the UK is notorious for that. They have at least one, but usually 2 or 3 round stickers with the company logo on, and then a wide rectangular sticker with the price on. More times than not, the stickers end up leaving glue on the cases and/or only partially peeling off. Still, their prices are decent and I've yet to buy a disc from there (they also sell CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays etc, all pre-owned) that wouldn't play.

    Goo gone is some amazing stuff. I’ve not tried it on those stickers but on about anything I have used it on it worked great.
    It does leave a residue but it seems to come off pretty easily with a little alcohol.

    you can use lighter fluid as well. it's good for getting ready of goo. best buy does this often with in store pickups. though, they're definitely better than gamestop.

    Probably they didn't lie indeed, either they did it or the owner of the trade did! Either way, stay away from GameStop lad, don't bother.

    Isn't better to find one in your area, or a bit in your reach, so you can test it, and make sure its in 4.82?
