Searched the interwebs for data on this, and while the installation looks straight forward I was wondering what everyone's take on buying a first-gen PS3 with a corrupt HD would be. Looking into buying a used PS3 mainly for playing Blue-rays and for my upcomming purchase of GT5. Don't mind spending some money, but a local friend offered me his first gen 60-gig with a bad hard drive for a really low price. Short of replacing the HD, any other issues I should be aware of? I don't want to commit to buying it, replacing the HD - and then have it not work. Chris has told me it takes a normal SATA HD, and online I've found that the software will automatically format it for PS3 usage. Short of that I have no experience with PS3's otherwise. Input would be greatly appreciated.
