Default My 2 week old PS3 is dead...

I can't belive it, but it's true. I was playing Assasins Creed for about an hour, when the game just froze. I was pissed, but I figured with so much going on it was just a fluke. Restarted, SAME thing. I let it sit over night. Next day, SAME thing. I figured it was the game.

I tried my other games and they play ok but there is no sound. Then when I come up to a loading screen the game won't load, it just freezes. Now whenever I put in anything, cd, dvd or game it won't show up. On the main screen it just shows there is no game in the system. The demos I have on the HD work just fine, so I'm pretty sure the drive is broken. JUST like my first PS2.

I'm pretty pissed just because this is what happened with my PS2. Thankfully it is under warranty.

I think Loki killed two of them in a short period of time.

I couldn't even make it through the instructions. I felt the controls were too confusing so I just turned it off and went back to playing Rainbox Six Vegas (XBox 360).

I dont like the game play of ps2 or ps3 and 360 has alot of more games. I admit when 360 came out it had some glitches, but they held back ps3 too. But ps3 if ******* cheap now 360=$299.99 ps3=$399.99(Canadian), but i will always be an xbox fan/ halo

Buy a 20 dollar cooling thingy or pay the 450 bucks for a 360 elite, they run cooler. Cooler temps = less lockups.

It's just the drive is dead. Everything else works fine, it just doesn't read the disc. I'm so tired of hearing the 360 is better because it has more games, of course it does it's been out longer. Halo = At my school (A video game design school) I know of at least 4 dead 360's, so it's not like they are all that much better. The new consoles are just REALLY complicated, there are tons of parts that can fail.

Assasins Creed is awsome. It does take some getting used to, but once you figure it out it really isn't that bad.

of course stories of dead boxes are purely anecdotal here. you can't really extrapolate that 4 dead units among your friends means 40% fallout rate.

Which is exactly my point. It's not +1 for 360, they have had failures as well. I don't dislike 360 for it's hardware and I don't mean to insult it. It's just EVERY person who owns an Xbox that hears my PS3 has a problem they say I should have gotten a 360.

I guess it bothers me so much more because I deal with it at school ALL day. I was just posting to see if anyone else had problems with theirs yet.

I hear just the oposite from people who have PS3's. In fact, I didn't think they ever had problems based on what friends say.

FWIW, I have 4 XBox 360's. Two were purchased working, one was repaired (3RLOD), and one had a bad DVD. I fixed the one with the DVD problem and ended up working on the 3ROLD box several times. It has been running for a week this time and I am hoping it will keep on working. I have modified the cooling system of all 4 boxes to hopefully keep more problems from happening. These things definitely don't run right...

I have one of the original batches of the 360's with a Niko intercooler on it. I hav never seen the rings of death, or had any weird lockups. I guess i got one of the flukes of th bunch.

The intercoolers are known causes of PS deaths. Do some searching and determine if you want to leave yours attached (I have one but do not use it due to the problems). There ARE better ways to cool...
