New Member needs PS3 Advice!!
I have some quick questions regarding the modding of a ps3. First off, a bit about my background, I own a Wii (modded) ps2 (chipped), and a couple of psp's (all on CFW). An Ip4s jailbroke.So, i understand the basic's, and am able to catch on quick. The thing is I have no experience with the ps3 (yet). I'm a Dad, and have done all this stuff for my Son.
I want to buy my Son a ps3, (and a Vita) for Christmas this year, and am not scared to buy a used one. I'm looking through Kijiji adds, and am finding all kinds of deals, some newer slim units,and some older fat units, but don't know what to buy?
What I need to know, is what am i looking for, as far as what will be moddable? What ver. Ps3 should I be looking for, and what ver. software should it have, so I can instal CFW? Also, what situation is the PS3 mod scene in now? Is it possible to make backup's at this time? Or is it possible to back up a game to HDD and have them playable? If i were to find a ps3 that meets all the critera for modding, what is the largest HDD that I could install in it? (IE: could I install a 1TB drive?).
If someone could please answer all my questions here, I'd truly appreciate it, as I'm a very busy guy, and know all the answers are out there, but I really don't have the time to start from scratch, and spend endless hours reading through all the forums, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this for me, as It would save me a hell of alot of time.... :-) an time is money.
Thanks for everything, in advance, and all help is greatly appreciated!
