yeah, downloading games through the store, or if your a playstation plus member the free game you get every month. So if youve only got discs then the 12gb is perfect, as larger models are silly expensive.

You can always swap the hard drive out of your broken one into the 12gb too. You will lose all your data though or buy a new hard drive to upgrade memory.

Found it, taken from another forum, posted Jan this year:

Sony will replace your broken PS3 with a reconditioned unit for £110. And if you've got the original model, they will replace it with a slim model if you'd prefer.

They will send out the replacement next day delivery, just call the UK Customer Services number. 0844 736 0595

One guy replied a couple of days later:

Just spoke to a very pleasant chap at Sony and ordered a replacement PS3. Cost £110 and it's a 120GB slimline model. They're apparently remanufactured not refurbished models, so I presume as new and have a 3 month warranty. They take your old console away, authenticate the serial no. and check the hard disk, then send the replacement.

A courier company pick up the old console (next day if you catch them early on a weekday) and you'll usually have a replacement in 3 days, although they do say 7 just in case there's any complications. The £110 includes the courier fees.

3 month warranty doesn't sound too good.

Yeah I've got it and it's hands down one of the best FPS shooters I've played. Absolutely loved the first game. The use of the rails in the sky is a brilliant gameplay feature IMO.

Finished it. Didnt like it as much as the others and the first one remains my favourite, but was a really decent FPS. Pretty decent enemies and powers and shit but some bits are proper confusing lol. The ending is great.

Anyone know how to get rid of Cinavia turning off the sound when watching a downloaded film through their ps3? Have googled it but there doesn't seem to be a definitive/clear answer?

No proper solution but…. change the date on your ps3 everytime the cinavia thing pops up. A day ahead should work.
