Would you be willing to answer a few brief questions about PlayStation Forums?
how many ps3 games do u have? If u dont have many then i suggest waiting for the ps4
I have about 30 ps3 games and yes i am getting the ps4 but thats christmas time, along time from now. I really dont want to wait
if thats the case then i would get the slim, its better in every way
the problem you describe could be a bad HDD, its not hard to replace, I am surprised nobody noticed this lol if you wanna check you could restore/format the PS3 or try an spare HDD on it see if it works better
i already restored the ps3 to factory nothing changed
do you mean the option that resets all settings? that does nothing, a format could be helpful but the best way to know is trying another HDD
