Hey guys long time ps3 owner here and I have a problem my ps3 decided to die a few days ago and went through trial and error leading for a system reset which was unaffective. The ps3:
it plays anygame for about 10 mins and freezes badly to where i have to turn it off in the back. After I do i turn it back on and the home menu is laggy, sometimes the game doesnt pop up, or i play again and i dont even get to the menu on the game. I had this ps3 for literally 7 years no problems till now. It went from perfectly fine to just working so obviously its hardware. Now i have to send it in for repair OR take the CECH-2501A (PS3 160GB)(Slim) should i send my old dinosaur in for repair or get the new one both costing $129.
yeah it play all ps2 games, but as cool as that is it doesnt affect me much i dont play any anymore
In that case get a slim, they seem to be built better and my slim is substantially quiter than my old fatboy. Ideal for watching movies, it's on right now and I don't even hear it running.
any other opinions?
My fatboy broke on me 3 times until I finally upgraded to the slim. I don't regret it.
I still own my original PS2, so if I ever want to play my older games, I can just hook that up.
As the poster above me said, the Slim is much quiter and less of a power hungry beast.
When I went to send in my PS3 for repair, that third time, Sony offered me a 120GB Slim for $99 plus my 60GB fatboy.
You could see if they will offer you the same deal.
Yeah your better off buying a new one which is what I did anyways. Plus you can buy some PS1 and PS2 Games on the Playstation store but it is emulation though but I have some and they play pretty decent.
