Second hand PS3 advise please
I have no experience with ps3 whatsoever, however in the past I have modded psx, ps2, xbox classic and gamecube units.
Thinking of getting a ps3 to hobby around with, I found this site, so hopefully I did not miss a "n00bs read this first" sign (otherwise please re-direct this question)
my question: Is getting a PS3 with broken blue-ray drive a good idea?
Noticably there are a lot of relatively cheap second hand PS3 units with broken blue-ray players being sold around here.
Myself not being the slightest bit interested in blue-ray (my TV is HD-ready and served well by a WD TV live), I am wondering if it is possible to mod a ps3 that has a broken blue-ray player if my only goal is to get it to boot from HDD.
I'm planning of doing some trial and error, and obviously reading up on things through this forum, but I thought i'd best ask here if it makes any sense, for all I know the media drive is essential to something prior to modding :)
Many thanks for responses and/or pointing me in the right direction.
