    the funniest thing about fanbots in general…they want to make their beloved corp look good but in fact they just make it look bad. who wants to play on a platform crowded with narrow minded douchebags attacking everyone who has another opinion?
    unfortunateley, in my experience the most aggressive and most annoying ones fight under the sony banner. it is a shame really…they make the awesome playstation brand look bad. makes no sense to me at all but whatever.

    @5 Not that I’m jumping to anyone’s defence here but I had 2 xbox 360s with RROD, a PS3 with YLOD and a PS3 that decided it didn’t like Blurays any more. So I’d call that even-stevens on the failure rate though right?

    @5: give it up man, i already own a vita and ps3. all you are doing is making sony look bad, you are wasting your time and energy. in fact you support microsoft with this bullshit much more than you support sony. that´s what´s so funny about you raging fanboys.

    About your ps3 not reading blurays anymore. I might have a solution. If your warrant is over open the thing and clean your bluray lense.

    I cleaned one myself and other one a buddy did for me. I smoke in my room and within 2 years the bluraylense might get dirty.

    Check youtube. I basically bought my second ps3 for nothing lol.

    @11 Thank you mate but didn’t need any drastic surgery. At the time it wasn’t that old so I managed to get it exchanged under warranty but my point to ps3fanboy above was that even the Sony GodConsole3 wasn’t immune to failure, much like every other electronic item ever made and lets face it, in business, its not having the fault that’s the issue, its how you deal with it and MS was slow to deal with dead 360′s at the start and Sony was fast dealing with my PS3 failures by the time they happened.
