My PS3 finally broke while playing TM

17 replies 380 views Edited Dec 30, 2012

 So I bought this game the day it was released. Love the online play, hate the errors. Hate the freezing. Always having to restart the system. Well, I had to restart the system last night and now my PS3 won't work. Yeah the system is 4 years old but I am still blaming TM and the devs and whoever the **bleep** is in charge of this. If anybody elses PS3 has died on them while playing TM please post. I am off to buy another PS3 at Best Buy... Hopefully this doesn't happen again. Or I will be holding ESP accountable for two broken PS3s.

Phat PS3's are ticking time bombs, they will all break eventually.  TM was not the cause, trust me. 

 

Bad design in their heat cooling is to blame, that and tin solder wiskers.  I've gone through two phats myself, before wising up and grabbing a 3000CH slim.

 

I've long said if you have a fat, trade in in first good deal you can find.  The slims run much cooler, quieter, and are better engineered.

How the heck did you keep it going for six years? Do you have to restart the system when playing TM?

Amazon is selling phats for $700 to $1000?! Check it out, how the **bleep** are they getting away with that?

What do you mean restart? You mean if it freezes? When it freezes I just hold down the power button (not the switch in back) which powers it down. Then start up like normal. Doesn't crash as much as I used to.

Thats exactly what I meant. Is it not bad for your system to be shut off when it freezes?

Bad? I'm sure its not good, but I don't know how bad it is. I used to crash a couple times a day for the first 4 months or so.
