    Just got offered and accepted a 'broken' PS3 40GB with the box and receipts from my friend. It wouldn't do any more than start the fans and beep 3 times. Swapped the HDD with a laptop drive I had lying around. Started it up, prompted me to format and now I got a PS3 160GB

    Also, the day it broke my friend went out and bought an 80GB PS3.
    Edit: I am going to be using it as my media centre (faithful XBMC'd Xbox will be retired), is there anything cool I can do other than stream movies over my network?

    I've got a broken PS3 80GB in a cupboard here behind me - a dumb a++ here at work picked it up for me on his way back from a work trip to Dubai, though he somehow managed to get a SA/Russian region coded one (even though Dubai is European region coding) and dumped the box at the airport so it could fit in his suitcase. Nevertheless, it still would have still been a bargain had the the Bluray drive not been fried.

    To boot, he'd lost the receipt...

    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer as they say... I won't be asking him to do me any favors again...

    I want a PS3 pretty badly, but with all the rumors of a price drop I keep on postponing it...
