Even the original PS2 with all the end of life DRE issues has a better record than the 360, that design was simply horrible. An almost 200 watt machine, in a small little case with all stand alone cooling fins trying to cool itself with only negative pressure. Couple in the transition to lead free solder and the whole thing was a mess.

The moron that slapped that together should be fired and forced to switch career paths.

I think he was moved over to the SharePoint department cause... SharePoint is horrible.

Should the irony of that batman symbol be that someone named "The Real Spider-Man" posted it?

Maybe he was put in charge of the design for the Windows 8 GUI with non-touchscreen laptops in mind. But he may have been behind Sharepoint too.

How did your PS3 die during 2012? It had no games.

I still have my 60 gig BC ps3 but I find I'm spending way more time with PCSX2 now that it has advanced as much as it has. Also, the slew of widescreen patches for popular games has made all these ps2 "HD" re-releases on the ps3 unnecessary buys.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:35:26 AM PST
I can list 200+ games the PS3 got in 2012.

He's talking about exclusives only. Of course if systems broke from playing exclusives, not a single 360 would have RRoD'd.

All Nintendo systems in the world would be dead if this were the case.

I was going to start up Assassins Creed 3, when it broke. The first thing I did was get the game out of the system. I did not want a game to be stuck.

They will send you a manufacture refurbished system that is the same as yours, my 60GB BC PS3 died i waited about a year+ to send it in and got a 60GB BC in return.

Does it actually start up Thurman and just freeze at some point? if you have any other HDD for your PS3 have you tried that to see if it worked?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:52:46 AM PST
2.5? No. The only extra hard drives that I do have is a 3.5. So, that wont work. I believe I would have to buy one. I can check some old computer's or laptops that we dont use to see if there is any way I could use those any of those hard drives.

I only ask because when my 60 went down it would not even come on i would the power button it would beep a couple times and go back to the Red light you see in standby. I had to actually take my ps3 apart to get my game out as well.

I would try an HDD if you can just to make sure it has nothing to do with the HDD and google some things you can try, some say to let it rest for a good amount of time and then try again etc

I am sure that does include PSN games too so would not be that hard

Thank you

You are are you?

If your going to tell me that 200+ games didn't come out this year on the PS3, your dead wrong. Heck, 10 or so games just came out last week.

That's an incomplete list because I bought some games that came out this year that aren't on it. Legasista for example.

Even still, that's pleeeenty of games.

Also, side not, I include PS1 releases as well, unless none of those came out this year, I thought I saw a bunch though.

Oh, and does that include Japanese releases as well?
