there are no tips to keep the ps3 running smoothly because it always runs smoothly.
anyways, that a console runs smoothly should be a matter of course. All those nyko intercooler fan crap shouldn't be bought. the console has to run stable like a duck takes to water.

The 360 seems way too fragile. Why do you have to worry about so much? My PS3 is fine and I never have to worry about all that stuff. I am careful with it anyway since I always make sure my consoles have breathing room and don't put them on the carpet but his list just seems like too much. If you really have to worry about all that the 360 is in trouble. Most people just can't be bothered with so much stuff.

If you have a launch ... SURE

But if have one that is pretty new or even better, with the Falcon board ... other than don't box it in like a boarder hopper you should be fine.

Those tips seem helpful. I see too many Xbots accusing people of being idiots just because they expect their 360 to work and function like any other consumer electronics device.

We are trained to think that our DVD player, Ipod, TV, Receiver, original xbox are just plug and play, but MS decided to throw us all a curveball.

My PS3, Receiver, and HD dish box are all inside of a wooden cabinet. I just keep the door open on the PS3 side and it runs silent and without issue as any piece of A/V equipment should.

drewdrakes4566d ago

marinelife, how many calculations are your other devices doing? Probably not as much as a game console. The HD dish could come close because it would use advanced math algorithms to decode the compression, but a lot of HD boxes do that in hardware for speed. In that case the box would stay at a very reasonable temperature.

I can think of 5 reasons too; oddly enough they're all the same thing! lol

Keep the dog; shoot the owner.

Agreed. That is one smart dog.

It doesn't matter, if it's going to RROD, it's going to happen. You can't stop it.

I'm pretty sure the author misspelled "Nycko."

Actually, this is what happened to my freind when he turned on his 360 and saw the red lights:

My friend RIP
