"Do you Love your PS3?"

"How Many of you Love your PS3? Have you ever bothered to read the instruction manual? Did you know there is a maintenance page for up-keep on you shiny black beauty? Well, it just so happens that I have recently found out, by talking to many people, that nobody reads the manual anymore. I remember the first time I opened my NES (Showing my age) and ripped through the box, going directly for the manual. I didn’t want to miss a thing about my new-found toy. These days, it seems that piece of paper that says “User Manual” tends to stay in its clear plastic wrapping, never to be opened. Well, fear not because I have,"

The story is too old to be commented.

is that PS3 real? it looks huge. was it before the 60 gig came out. does this mean we were cheated out of the real console?

darthv722574d ago

Lets apply this question in general. Granted it comes from a PS3 site but it is a legit question to be asked of anybody and pretty much anything.

I only tend to read the manuals from the first instance. After I figure it out i put it back in the box and put the box away. Have been doing this with all my consoles.

I only refer to the manual if there is something i cant figure out but mostly now I do my research online.

Oh and yes i do enjoy my consoles company from time to time.

GrieverSoul2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

I actually flip a few pages from every manual I get.

This is kinda of gross but I read them in the toilet since Im not playing it, lets get to know it better. :) Especially game manuals!

pain777pas2574d ago

GrieverSoul
The fact is you are far from alone and it is a common practice for me especially when I just bought a game or system.

ThanatosDMC2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

I got my PS3 pregnant. Is it wrong? Of course not!

I'm expecting an NGP/PSP2 soon.

inveni02574d ago

Dude, I read the manual for every new toy--including video games. Here's how it goes: I buy new toy. I put unopened box in trunk. I drive my wife to the purse store. She goes in. I open trunk. I open box. I remove toy. If toy requires power or separate device, I remove manual. I read manual. I finish manual. Wife returns shortly after. We go home. I play with toy using information from manual.

It's like a ritual. I've done it that was since I was old enough to drive (minus the wife part).

Corepred42574d ago

I thought as man law we were not allowed to read any kind of manual or instruction booklet of any kind?! We just had to figure it out on our own! lol

nanometric2574d ago

Do I love my PS3 - eff no, do I like it - hell yes. I might be primitive, but my love is reserved for my girl and not for an inanimate object.

As for game/console manuals, there is nothing better to buy a new game, go home, sit down to take a ...and read a manual. And that’s one of the reasons I’m against EA’s proposed digital manuals, ain’t too comfy sitting on a crapper with a laptop. Hey, I am primitive, remember?!

Pixel_Pusher2574d ago

It's a fucking plastic box...so that would be a NO but I do like my PS3 and I've met some pretty cool gamers from around the world because of it.

hay2574d ago

I love every piece of amazing stuff that's in my possession.

HappyGaming2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

@ThanatosDMC
How much would you sell your sperm for?
I would want to impregnate my PS3 with it too.

@nanometric
Share the love dude... share.. the.. love...

TVippy2574d ago

You're a fucking idiot. How can anyone LOVE a freaking piece of plastic and metal? It's a deasese, people. Love the games, not the machines they're running on, because they're so flawed...

hay2574d ago

@TVippy: "You're a fucking idiot. How can anyone LOVE a freaking piece of ones and zeroes? It's a deasese, dude."
See what I did there?

People can love music, movies, sunrise, cars, musical instruments, silence, beer, work, life or pretty much anything.

You're against loving hardware but pro loving software? That's the stupidest argument on this site, probably ever, sorry mate.

davidmccue2573d ago

Maybe as a number 10

paintsville2573d ago

I think the instruction manual required a "mandatory" 10 gig install and a "mandatory" firmware update before you could read it.

trancefreak2573d ago

I love all 3 of mine well except my 60 fatty going to texas/mexico for a repaired refurb.

cannon88002573d ago

LOL four people disagree with me stating that I love my ps3. lol are you guys the ones that control what i like and dislike? I guess I dont like my ps3 then, according to those four people.

egidem2574d ago

Actually I usually perform the fan test (flip the back switch at the back to off, hold the eject button then flip the back switch to on). This usually gets out the dust that is usually inside, but some people claim that it is not safe.

f7897902574d ago

It's not good for your ps3 if you do that after playing because of the rapid cooling. It risks creating cracks in the circuitry. Doing it after it's been off for an hour is just fine.

egidem2574d ago

@f789790

No, I never do it on the PS3 when it's hot or warm inside (like you said, after playing), it would just add stress to the inside board. I usually do it like once every 3 months, in the morning before turning it on. My PS3 is kept in a clean place but they do tend to find a way of recollecting dust.

TotalPS3Fanboy2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

Miss_G: "...but Ken is pretty big in bed."

madpuppy2574d ago

Yeah, JudgeDredd
That PS3 that Ken K. is holding is that big....just like the fingers on his left hand are 3 inches longer that his right.

Holeran2573d ago

No he's actually 3 foot 8 so it just looks big.

SYNTAXeRror2573d ago

i do that every other day ( vacuuming)....been through 3 of them...and only one 360!!!! livin' in bizarro world or sumthn...

DigitalHorror812573d ago

Once I heard about RROD, I promised myself I would only have one issue with it on my 360. The day it died on me, I sent it in for repair and once I got it back, I traded it in for my PS3.

My PS3 has been good to me.

afterMoth2573d ago

Of course I love my PS3. I am a gamer and the PS3 offers the best of the best :D

Shok2574d ago

Oh God, this question was just asked on N4G lol. I predict 1000 comments.

-Alpha2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

The article doesn't even have anything to do with the title, it's about maintenance.

Yet of course, by posing a question like this we already have people lining up to pronounce their love for PS3, which will serve to get this article to the hottest news within the day.

Stop approving this stuff and try to see they are only posing questions that they know will boost hits-- the link could lead to a satellite image of Bin Laden's cave and people wouldn't even notice around here

ChozenWoan2574d ago

Actually it's his private harem but no one cares as long as the title for the article on N4G is flamebait.

And yes, we all just bit the hook.

RememberThe3572574d ago

Shoot I bit and stayed hooked. I didn't know your supposed to vacuum your PS3 out monthly?! No wonder mine keeps breaking.

Jio2574d ago

I love my 60 gb. PS3. Even when it was getting fixed from the YLOD and they offered to give me a slim, I said no, now I happily play my fat shiny PS3.

Kleptic2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

haha I did exactly what this article, and the manual, said to do... vacuumed it once a month and kept it pretty clean...and it still ylod'd...but granted I beat the hell out of it...did folding for weeks straight at a time...the manual does say to clean it, but also says there is never a real need to turn it off...even the launch boxes say 'always on, always connected'...I'm fairly certain the system was not turned off once for all of 2008...

but I bought a new entertainment center just last year...I should have seen it coming, as the fan was running harder than I had ever heard it...It lasted about a week in that...and I was just getting lazy I guess, i'd turn it off directly from a game instead of going to the xmb and let it shut down automatically after 30 minutes (the online manual does recommend doing that, so the fan keeps running while the PS3 isn't under heavy load...cools it much better than the heat build up of just shutting it off)...the opening for PS3's spot in that thing pretty tight for a phat 60gb...perfect for a slim, so I went with that on a trade in after the old one broke...

couldn't be happier I guess...and its balls out with this one too, haven't shut it off for weeks because of GT5 remote racing...but i have never once heard a fan or anything other than the quick noise it makes when accessing the HDD...

f7897902574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

My 40GB YLOD. I reset the solder in the cpu with a heat gun and it worked again. Crazy that firing a couple hundred degrees of heat onto the cpu would fix it.

I promptly ran to Gamestop with it and got $200 credit which I used to buy a new 120GB slim model. I was about to upgrade the hard drive so I avoided that cost and got a slim for just $100!

Some poor soul bought that ps3, but that's what you get for buying used at Gamestop.

Masterchef20072574d ago

LOL i only wish people could do that with their 360s it would be so funny.

Mister_G2574d ago

My launch day 60gb is okay, but if it ever broke I'd get it fixed rather than replaced with a slim too :)

Nothing wrong with the slim, just prefer my phat PS3.

SuicidalTendencies2574d ago

I only love my Dreamcast. Sorry other consoles. :(

danthegardner2574d ago

Oh! That's why your name is SuicidalTendencies.

SuicidalTendencies2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

I don't get it.

The reason why my name is ST is this......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

f7897902574d ago

He's saying the Dreamcast commit suicide.

SuicidalTendencies2573d ago

How did the Dreamcast commit suicide? It died mainly because of stupid decisions by SEGA and hype by Sony for their PS2.

Zashule2574d ago

YAY DREAMCAST!!
I still patiently hope in the corners of my heart for Dreamcast 2. My SEGA childhood memories were shattered when I learned that DC was SEGA's last console. Too bad they cannot program worth a crap for other consoles.

DigitalHorror812573d ago

I highly doubt we will EVER see another SEGA platform.

Not likely.

I LOVED MY DREAMCAST. It was way ahead of its time.
