    What Purnout Paradise Expansion are you talkin about? I bought Paradise the day it came out, and the stuff in the Ultimate Edition or whatever its called (motorcycles and such) was available as free DLC for me.

    I never play my 360, and my sister wants a PS3 so I was wondering if anyone wouldn't mind trading, it's a 360 elite (2009 version) it comes with pure, lego batman, a headset, a controller, chatpad, and my XBL account which has a few games, and DLCs if you want...

    Won't do anything to increase the performance, but it may help it run a bit cooler to get all that dust out. If you want something faster for HDD then change out the harddrive to something better (but do a system backup on an external harddrive first)

    Yup, bought a WD 500Gb 2.5" HDD off of amazon during the sale week for £30, bought a PS3 slim HDD cage (Mine super slim didn't come with a hard drive cage). Pop the right side off (it literally is that easy! Google it), slot the HDD in and boot up. It will copy the firmware from the onboard 12GB storage and you're ready to go. If you don't have a PS3 with onboard storage like mine, then all you need to do is download the PS3 firmware from their website (googling it is easy enough), put it on a USB memory stick and plug it in when you turn on the PS3 with the new HDD in. Follow instructions. Easy as, which is why I love my PS3 over the 360 sat dusty in the corner looking ashamed of itself.

    7 years aint bad although today there is better stuff to play Netflix movies on like the ROKU 3 which would give you at least 83w power usage saving haha.

    maybe thats more of a heatgun issue imo. but at this point what do you have to lose? besides I know you must be getting rusty with the job and the hot wife. You need to step it up.
