How's the new 360 motherboards treating you?

Stryfeno23785d ago

Suit me fine, hows those animated themes? I thought you only had to pay for themes on the 360?

Rhythmattic3785d ago

Actually, The animated Africka theme is fantastic. Though had a choice to download it....

My choice.

Did I mention Free ?

OmarJA3785d ago

An update that kills you console:

Only on the 360...

Jump Out.

OmarJA3785d ago

Poor desperate patchy boy trying so hard...

"but but nothing wrong with my PS........... sorry I froze up :D"

So there is nothing wrong with your PS...

But you, Jason 360 just froze up.

Great way to own ones self.

OmarJA and his typical droid comebacks... Read the articles and do some research before replying.


JasonPC360PS3Wii3785d ago

It's PS......... because I froze before I got to the 3. As in PS3 but more like PS.......froze. Are you realy that dense that you need someone to explain a simple joke? Shall I walk you through it holding your hand step by step and tell you what a good boy you are?

OmarJA3785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

Typical bot respond, here you go:


Rhythmattic3785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

PS is to me Playstation, You know, a Sony's gaming Brand.

If you didnt get to a 3, then you dont know what your missing.

As for what its worth, you'll just end up where you started 360. At the beginning.

As for your last comment .

@ PirateThommie & OmarJAckass

So how does it feel to know 1 out of 10 PS3's die because of YLOD and BluRay diode problems with only 1 year of warranty by Sony instead of 3 years that the competition gives?

Rhythmattic3785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

So what your saying is (in your smug way) , Your happy that the 360 3 year warranty covers something Sony doesent need to cover ?

Cmon, YLOD is near non-existant. Not that it doesent exist.

All crap aside, me, personally I have not bought a 360 as all my friends systems have karked it. Simple.
And yes, their 360's have been replaced, and why shouldnt they be due to a (strangely) "Accepted" Fault. Albeit a 3 week or more turnaround.

Not saying the 360 isnt a great gaming console, its just it aint a great hardware design....

Protect it all you want, but I will say, the day I see 360 failures drop to an acceptable amount, I'll be first to get in line and buy one. GeOW series. Thats Good SHlT....

Its really that simple...................... For Me.

Sony has come a long way since 2006 learnt many lessons and now are stronger than ever thanks to them!!

zeeshan3785d ago

I have not really had any problem with the FW3.0 so far but the problems ARE there for many users and I have said it before and I'll say it again. All the problems that I read about are defenitely patchable. It's coming for sure. Not a matter of "if" rather WHEN :)

QSPR3785d ago

they give us an option to go back to the old xmb... but with the new features like dynamic themes!!!

antt33785d ago

because I never have any problems with firmware updates. I even heard complaints of long download times for this one, and mine downloaded faster than previous ones, in like 10 minutes max.

prabx3785d ago (Edited 3785d ago )

why would u want to go back to the old XMB? the new one is great, all they need to do is remove the PS Store from game and video tabs, and give us the option to change the friends list.. like instead of grey boxes, we can apply a theme or certain colour to our own friend profile, which would appear on our friends, friends list.

gamesR4fun3785d ago

dl'd the dlc last nite cause i hadnt played it yet but when ai rebooted an ol game it was glitchier than hell
game was stutering so bad it was unplayable used to drop a few frames b4 but now its unplayable. Gonna try un/reinstallin it and start a new game jus hope it doesnt mess up at the same part again.

sniper-squeak3785d ago

Please fix the TV icon for my UK PS3 Sony! :)

QSPR3785d ago

not everybudy likes the new update,but if u read,I just say give us (the ones who don't like it) an option to go back to the old one. if u like it good, but i don't like it at all.

I had no single problem with firmware yet.

bageara3785d ago

Had my PS3 since launch and never had any probs with a firmware update

I've had problems with freezing, especially when going into account settings. Either it freezes or takes ages to bring up the menu.

Other than that, I've never had problems with any updates either. The people that run around screaming "FW X.XX bricked my system!!!" take an issue that affects a very small minority and exaggerate it greatly.

I'm not saying that there aren't problems -- there are; however, the chance that you get affected by them is pretty small, I think.

trancefreak3785d ago

my 60 gb needs this update its been pissin me of with the freezing up. my 40 had no update problems.

Sarcasm3785d ago

My uncharted freezes too often now.

Other than the oversized fonts, ugly gray friends list, everything else is peachy.

But it's not a myth folks, people are having issues since FW3.0.

Hopefully 3.01 addresses these issues.

meepmoopmeep3785d ago

same here, no tech issues yet. when the firmware was just released i had a hard time logging on to PSN but that problem is gone now.
