You can put me on the list for the PS3 Clubhouse
PS3 Model: 160gb
I have a Mic ATM to, Right now i am just slamming hours on Battlefield 3.
Now that game is worth the price tag
*walks away with .44 scoped*
I am also a play-station store whore to, Usually just rent out some movies I really want to see, or purchase an expansion pack if I am forced to (BF3 or Burnout Paradise)
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.
Cant wait for FF13-2
PS3 Media Server can't copy music that's in my iTunes folder for some reason
Anyone have any idea why?
Any one of you guys want to trade your PS3 for a 360?
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...
Finally found a copy in stores, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City.
A quick question, Is it safe to clean PS3 inside?And will it help to increase performance?Becuase my PS3 is so slow loads copy info from discs and from harddisk aswell.So any advices?
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)
So i just buy any 2.5 notebook hdd or better will be to bring ps3 hdd to shop to be sure?
Clubhouse leader could Add to thread name PS4 aswell, for future PS4 fans.
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.
My first gen ps3 has died after almost 7 years of loyal service the ps3 passed away playing netflix.
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.
yea, the thing is my tv plays netflix just fine. oh well maybe i will get a ps4 next year when the division and mgs4 come out!
i had a ps3 over heat 2 years ago level 3 fan speed idle at dash and skyrim would lock up the unit and netflix would flicker red. I managed to rebuild before it was all hopeless and its been working fine. mines a gen 1 40gb phat. is yours truly dead?
i get the ylod. i looked up videos on fixing it by baking it and adding new paste. looks like a big pain for something that probably wont work.
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.
i dont have a heat gun. will a hair dryer work?
unfortunetely no not hot enough. you need to push close to 600F a hair dryer doesnt have a narrow enough stream. their like $15 at HF though.
