Now that this generation is about to draw to a close, we look back and check on the PS3's reliability. How was your luck with it? Did you get the YLoD?
better than my girlfriend ...yeah that's right if i want to get my Treat with ps3...i get my Treat right away but with my GF she for most of the time need me to take her out first and watch lame movie and then i get my Treat Too much work to get my Treat ...Damn it :P
I ignored PS3 for its first two years. I didn't buy one until MGS4 and Dead Space were available, but after that I've played the system until present-day. It hasn't hit a dry spell since I first bought it.
Like Black Friday
I got an 80gb PS3 bundled with MGS4. The only hiccup it ever got was an issue with ejecting the discs from the slot-load reader. Once I got that part replaced. It was all good again.
Very pleased I was sad to see my PS2 go but it was for the better ;)
I waited til 07 to get mine, 80gb Motorstorm bundle and got CoD4 with it. And she was amazing, only had one disc drive failure but once I sent it in for a fix I haven't had a problem since. Though after a few years she did get kind of lonely so I brought her home a baby sister a 250gb original ps3 slim and now we're all living happily ever after.
Planning on buying my first come Black Friday. Need to get in on all of the exclusives I have been putting off.
well, you have a very long list of exclusives ahead of you have a nice gaming :)
Been freakin' awesome, it works all day and gets a little rest, and its still going strong. Only problem i'm having now is the disc reader doesn't load very quickly and sometimes i have to put the disc twice for the game to start.
True Story, I was in a bad place in while I lived in NY. Although I got my PS3 free at the time from a local Smash Bros melee tourny we thew weekly at a GameStop. I moved to central FL in 2008 with a 1st gen 80GB BC PS3 and 30$ no family. I landed place to stay for a few days at a house that only had 360s. I syphoned wifi from next door neighbor since no one had it in the house with wired only 360s, looking for jobs found one applied and I've been at my job at a hospital for 5 years now. Used that 30 bucks for a ride to work first day since Florida requires a car to get around conveniently and PSN purchases (Warhawk DLC). I love my PS3, it did a whole lot more for me than my wii did, kept my door open. Yes I YLoD though, 4 years later playing MAG for 4+hrs with my 500GB Samsung HDD installed (SO MANY MOVIES GONE) I fixed it, bought my GF a PS3 and bought a new one just in case my old one YLs agian for good so keep it hooked up to my projector in my living room. My PS3 given me years of entertainment, my job, another fun thing to do with the Mrs and great memories. Hell I even use it to post on here sometimes. All in all it has treated me TOO well. Thanks for reading my story. ^_^
Man, i'd marry my PS3 if it found me a job lol Good to know that consoles saves people. Seriously, glad to know you're safe now
Thanks alot! it's been a crazy 7 years with my electronic companion.
PS3 treated me great. I picked up a phat 60 in early spring of 07, along with Oblivion and Resistance: Fall of Man. Good times. Really looking forward to PS4.
Good loud fan now. Sitting up on soup cans is helping lol
