w00t it has occured.. I'm not going to pay additional money to get it fixed. If I don't get it fixed for free I will most likely just leave it like this and move for Xbox or something.

Atleast post it in the PS3 section. Buy continous play and then send it to repairment, will cost you like 5 euros.

I'm honestly thinking about doing it. Even if my ps3 might get replaced. Smile

If you're planning to buy a 2nd hand one, then ask me before doing it, to be sure you don't get fucked.
But the best option is still to buy a new one.

With the 33% failure rate, I'm sure it will Laughing

Hi , this happend to my PS3, i decided to get a 360 after this, i also paid for my PS3 repairal, and i can honestly say don't get an Xbox if you want to have just one console i much prefer the PS3 as CG has a much better PS3 community than the Xbox side. And you will be forced to play on GB which is no where near as good as CG imo.

This is only for the UK, I contacted them.

To Callum: in most cases MS is more flexible when it comes to repairing and replacing an Xbox 360. Also I have only seen 2 good games on ps3, whereas there are more good games on Xbox 360.

To Destroyer: I will only buy a new one mate Smile I wish to have a warrantee on it and I'm willing to pay a higher price for that.

To Mr Crabs: Thank you for your contribution. Smile I will first try to work something out with Sony. I have mailed the service of my government concerning Consumerprotection to see if there are any rights to use in my advantage. If there are, I will use them aggresively on the poor chap picking up the phone. Smile

You seem to control the situation, but look at what I've posted in OF2 section, it's important.

I checked it out mate, but the copying of games wasn't the main reason to buy a 360. I know I can't do stuff like that, I'm not great in that kind of stuff. Smile If you say it's dangerous, I won't even make an attempt cause I know it will backfire. Smile

Only for UK. Ps3 isn't better than 360 and 360 isn't better than ps3, it's all a matter of perception and opinion + pure marketing fooling. :-)

well 360 is better online and thats true, if you think ps3 is better online then you're crazy
360 has more games with dedicated servers, better connections and better features

And the ps3 has it's strengths as well. It all depends on what you're looking for. And to which brand you're loyal to.

I'm not saying you're a fanboy. But it's the companies their goal to make you loyal to their products. If you're happy with a ps2, you'll most likely go to ps3 and not to xbox. Fanboys are another level higher.

I have a big document from the government with all my rights in it. I hope they will just replace it when they see it. Happy Smile

Better buy two of each game then :P . Xbox scratches disks, Plus a much higher failure percentage. And higher fixes + longer time to get it back.
+ In the long term due to having to pay to play X360 is so much more money to have than PS3. £40 for 12 months.

I considered buying 360 but because i had a go at sony we got another PS3 for free.

By the way is this the first time it has failed? If so mention that you know many people who had a free fix for PS3 first time. Cause i did.
