Looks like the old man had his last day today, I played for about 2 hours, the system unexpectedly shut off and started flashing the red light. I turned it off for an hour unplugged all the cables and when i turned it back on, same thing. The wierd thing is I just replaced the hard drive about 2 or 3 weeks ago, could be a coincidence, or maybe not. It is a 20 gb launch edtion upgraded very recently to 160 gb.
I would dump my PS3, but I need it for TLOU DLC, Lightning Returns and Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2.
Also for any one looking to dump their PS3...you might want to wait a while. I read that eBay is saturated with them right now so the prices are tanking.
There is no way in heck i would get rid of it if i could fix it I would. It is the backward compatible model, i just got ps+ so there are a lot of games i want to play on it. Time to break out the ps1 until Nov. 15th. If the ps4 wasnt releasing in 2 weeks I would go out and buy another ps3
I would but i guess it is just time to jump to the new gen, most of my friends wont have the ps4 but at this point i dont have much of a choice. My wife wont let me spend money on a ps3 while spending it on the ps4
Now it is blinking yellow then the constant red :I I am slightly dissapointed.
Has anyone tried to repair this, I am seeing a lot of ads on Craigslist for 40 dollar repairs on YLOD's but it is about an hour and a half away from me. Has anyone tried this and has it worked for them?
