A PS3 owner reports: "PS3 shuts off while playing Tony Hawk P8 after 3 hours of play. Trys to start but hasnt started up since. Just get flashing red light."Check our the video below
We will be seeing this a lot the coming months
With the cell on a yield of 10 to 20% I didn't expect anything else
their yield rates are equal to that of Intel and AMD's dual-core chips. You'd think they could've done better with a 9-core design.
I would be kind of angry if I paid 600$ for a red flashing light! even if it came with a whopping 3 hrs. of [email protected]
oops Dbl. post
the red light just means your sausages and burgers are ready
moderate lag on line and bottlenecking on every single player campaign. I haven't seen a review of a smoothly played game yet.
"i told you so"
this would never happen with a 360!!!!
oh, wait a minute...nevermind:D
expected this to some degree... every console launch has issues because no matter how much quality control a company does there are going to be conditions that they haven't tested.
The only launch that might not have these problems is the "wii" because the technology is pretty much proven. unless sunlight fries the sensor bar, which I highly doubt it will...
Once sony has tweaked the manufacturing lines (just like with the 360) all these problems will begin to go away.
I for one feel passionately that Sony should not be tweaking the 360 manufacturing lines.
Oh, wait. ;)
you know what i meant
They couldn't get the problem with the DVD drives for PS2 to go away, then I do recall a battery problem. Problems with production. Well the good news is there is no problems playing movies.
Come sony, you should have choosen another colour. This generation every gamer is going to fear red. How about we decide to change the new failure colour to Blue, ooh or pink.
Gamers are already scared of girls!
I know other consoles had problems too. i missed a lot of PSone games because mine died. My Sega Saturn and Dreamcast also suffer the same faith. I remember I have to blow atari's 2600, NES, Maste System, Genesis and Snes cartridges to work but it wasnt the hardware problems it was software. Ive never comfronted problems with my PS2 and its the launch model. My Xbox and game cube hasnt give me any problems either. My 360 thats another story man. Im not saying that the 360 or PS3 are the worst ( I believe the 360 is on par with the PS2) but the reality is that there are hardwares problems. Not everybody has them but the one who confront these problems are called liars by the bunch of fanatics that lives in this site. So now maybe the 360 fanatics feel better because the CRAPPY60 is not the only console that has the red death ligths. LOL!! I KNOW YOU TRY to reflect yourself as a gamer, one of great knowledge, but you are just another one of these kiddy fanatics in the site. But I respect your opinion. I think Ive never messed with you before. So man keep trying. I know for sure that you enjoy your games. For that my respects. I left it here until others atackk.
We no you no like box thingy. smeet-spweeuu-wehuuw-spubbbb.
No console's ever been on par with the PS2 lol. You should take MS to court.lol
Even if Sony is having these hardware problems, the question should be how will they support it? I think MS did a good job by extending the warranties and fixing for free. Hope Sony is just as good.
for adopting early. You gotta have that new system to play and wait in line for hours, take it home, and youve already got problems with it. Thats why you wait 6 or so months after launch to get whatever it is that you want. That way, you may not be 1 of the cool ppl to get it 1st, but at least youll have a working system, still new, and only 6 months in, which means not too far behind the people who've gotten a 6 month head start on games. But yea, SUCKS TO BE YOU GUYS. but to be honest, this is only about the 6th or 7th one ive heard malfunction, so thats not too bad for now, we'll just see how the rest of the month plays out, and see how many are malfunctioning then.
yeah i waited untill problems were reported and fixed before getting my 360, i never rush to buy a product untill i know how well it works, and ive never been let down yet, my friend just got a 360 and yay its cool playin with him online! anyway sony has had so many problems with the ps3, will they get the number one spot back and start making a profit any time soon? who knows, but its not looking like the future will be bright any time soon for sony
let me get this right. ps3 was launched in th u.s on friday(sunday today), and there's ALREADY ps3's frying!?!?!?
i've always said that sony make sh*tty hardware so that their lemming-like followers, and i NEED say no more!!!
sony's going down the basin, quicker than a turd flush. (WHO doesn't think so?)
hmm its easy to say the ps3 is defect, but is it true ? i mean even if, its only on of thousands, and that rate is very low to a normal rate, so you can say the ps3 is perfect designed!
shut the fuk up!!!
this is discacefull. the ps3 is only 2 days old and is breaking down already. PATHETIC
that slipped out of the beaker before all the crack completed fertilizing your 1/4% of a brain. But, then again I've been to D.C. before -- so, umm..nevermind.
In all fairness, all consols suffer from malfunctions when they launch. I think its more important to note the crappy software thats launching with the system. The reviews are not that great with basically only resistance being worth buying on launch. This can be credited to the difficult to develope cell processor. Note I didn't say hardware because the gpu is something that was released for PC's a year ago so that shouldn't be an issue. Also the launch shortages can be blamed on the blu-ray player which it never needed in the first place to play games.
Had the exact same problem with my PS3 I got from Japan,played resistance and the console shut-down,then flashing red light.Already couriered my console back,waiting for response on swop-out etc.
soon we`ll be able to compare both rates of faultiness from each of the consoles...u know like oh nooss fire fire !!! for now it`s more like 1:10
They gave themselves an extra 8 months debug time becasue the $ony execs said the only reason P$3 was delayed was becasue of the Poo-Ray specs. Oh...you mean $ony lied to us? What a suprise! Next thing you're gonna tell me is the p$3 isn't 3 times as powerful as 360 and they had a superior number and quality of launch titles. Play B3yond lies!
the ONLY crack i touch is your momma's red-route!!!
she loves it, CAN'T get enough!!!!
C'mon D.Ck rida you know the only crack you've always touched and the ONLY crack you'll ever touch is your own, when you're finger pokes a hole through that cheap ass toilet paper stashed in your 100 yr. old row house. Do us a favor....stop pretendin' to be hard, Tell your mama and sista to pay ther electric bills on time, 'cause I'm tired of having to tax 'em for the juice, and go play your stolen xbox360 you little jihadist.
-P.S. We'd like to visit D.C. too, but just can't find the time.
Hygeine, Toothpaste, Good Lookin' Chicks and Clean Draws.
that is some funny a$$ sh!t, Weapon X. Got to find some pen and paper to write some of that sh!t down. Hahahahhahahaa!!!
Its just to good 4 its own good.
And I have a feeling that even if doesn't break down, it'll break down a couple days before the warranty expires...if that makes sense:)
It's good that every PS3 comes with a 1-year warranty instead of Microsoft's original 3-month warranty. Benefit of not being first to launch is you can learn from competitor's mistakes. BTW, weaponx, that was some hilarious crap. =P
your response is like that of a true cunt-guzzler!!!!
now go play upstairs, whilst i get to work and run a TRAIN on your momma(milf).
weapon x, your a joke,a pu**yhole!!!!
i'd PUNCH you all around your house like the TOSSER you truly ARE!!!
The PS3 was having hardware problems, crashing and freezing during the Tokyo Game show so you cant say you were not warned..lol I do recall Sony stating " These problems are caused by overheating and SHOULD NOT AFFECT THE NORMAL HOME USER." Well there right because a Normal Person would have common sence not to buy a PS3 after seeing it continuealy fail infront of millions of people.. lol
The Sony fanboys argued that this was only caused by being in a small hot box, Sony is great and The PS3 will rule... Pssst I hope some of you have woken up now to reality. Somtimes it takes a Big slap in the face for someone to snap out of the sony dream world.
Well I feel for ya all, look on the bright side you have the most expensive paper weight in history. Ouch $700 down the drain. maybe next year we will seee ya on Live .. until then keep ur head up high. peace
PS3 fanboys said to every 360 owner "your crapbox sucks" when people were getting the ring of death. Now you feel the pain its poetic justice. You fanboys aren’t laughing your crying now; maybe you shouldn’t have poked fun and pointed fingers. It sucks to be you right now because with limited PS3’s you will be waiting a long time for a replacement. Now to the 360 fanboys don’t do the same thing and start fanboy BS. Just bite your tongue and smile at all those who are kicking there TV's and throwing there PS3's out the window.
88 Days left on that warranty, better hurry.
U XBOX guys are talking crap about something that was at about a 50% fail rate with 360. I had 2 360 to break dwn and niether ws a launch system. U cats are funny.lol
Show me something that says that.
That's what I thought.
DC rider, calm DOWN man. whats with all the hate against the ps3? did it kill your family or what? anyways, u should play it safe and not buy an L-day console or close to it.
alot more in 2 days. Atleast there is no overheating or explosions... you do remember right? b/c your sorry halobox360 can barely sell 3 consoles in japan, trust me the ps3 will never sell 3 consoles in the US.
The Xbox 360 lol that guy must be dumb if he can't recongize that the PS3 only has red dots not rings douche bag get it right unless your using %1 of your brain to figure that out.
