    Im going to buy a PS3 very soon.. but Im not sure on what to buy! I could either spend £400 or so and get 2 games that I dont really want.. with no HDMI lead and only 1 controller from TOYSRUS, but this would be brand new..

    Or..

    I could get a second hand one (not that old.. probably ones that are about a month old from trusted sellers on eBAY). This would have a few games that I'd actually play, and some packages even have the HDMI lead and extra controller thrown in.

    What I want to know is.. what are the flaws of buying a second hand PS3 in terms of registration and hard drive memory... Are all PS3's registered? so if they are sold on to another person.. its still registered in the old owners name??

    Thanks :)

    Yeah but what is the registration process of the PS3?.. What do you actually have to do.. and once this is done.. is it transferrable?
