[Answered] How can you tell what firmware a ps3 has by its box?
I'm looking to buy a few 3.15 fat ps3s (for a super computer/modifying). So like the psp, how can you tell what firmware it has by what's written on the box?
At least when I do this I can finally update my personal ps3 and play some call of duty
Thanks to egohot I haven't been able to level up my 10th prestige

Obviously, if it's been sat in a box unused for the last 4 months, it will be fine. If it's been used more recently than that, probably not.
Your best bet is to make it a condition of sale that you can inspect it when it's switched on and plugged into a TV.
