then you don't need one to2988, but that doesn't negate the fact that the ps3 is superior.

Benzo.

Don't freak out yet. The same thing happened to me a few months back and I thought I was fucked. The screen was black when I turned on the system and got absolutely no sign of life. What are the problems your PS3 is actually having now. Can you see anything? Do the green/blue lights flash or stay solid? Let me know what's going on with it because I might be able to provide you with a solution. Whatever you do, don't send it in to Sony yet. They told me the same thing.

I'll disagree

the #1 thing you want in a gaming console is games and the experience

360 has better games, online play and controller

thats really all I want/need

I've done a bunch of research on-line and it looks like my lens is fucked, its not reading disks, happened almost immediatly after doing the firmware update.....If I leave it sit for a while, it will load em, but it is only a matter of time before it goes again. Is just the disk drive that seems fucked though. On a side note Giz, you work at an EB, if memory serves me correctly, if you guys ever get a Valkryia Chronicles in can you let me know. I traded mine in and it was the worst decision I ever made.

again, that's fine to, you have all you want. that doesn't negate the fact that it is a superior and more capable machine. all that indicates is your desire.

The PS3 is a superior machine. Hands down. No one can really deny it, but personally the cost is just not worth it, plus I enjoy the fact that the online portion is controlled to an extent with xbox live. The PSN, albeit free, I find slows down too often and is home to massive assholes.

Graphics wise, much of the time you really can't tell the difference between the two. PS3 wins though because it's a media hub while the Xbox 360 is simply a gaming console. Depends on needs.

Absolutely. I think we have a couple lying around.

But listen bro, I thought it was my lens too but what in fact happened was that my brother in law was downloading a demo for some game and it somehow downloaded a fragment of corrupt data. Completely fucked everything up and I couldn't load anything, couldn't even see anything. I thought it was a lens problem or hard-drive failure...have you gone into the PS3 boot mode? If not you should try it out...

When you turn on your ps3, hold the button down [make sure to hold it in one spot without moving] and wait till you here 1 beep...then right after you should here a third beep. After this the screen will enter the boot mode. This screen allows you to do multiple things including restore factory settings, restore system, amongst other features. You should definitely check it out as the absolute worst it can do is delete your backups.

I ended up "by accident" clicking on "Restore File System" and after about an hour my ps3 was working...all of my files were there...I just had to skim through all my data and delete the ones that were corrupt.

You should try it out man...

I did the restore system. Wiped everything. It doesn't restore back to old firmware does it? I'm still going to poke around for a bit before I do send it back, but I am starting to give up hope.

To tie my two piss off together, if you ever get your hands on "Buffy, Chaos Bleeds" for the Ps2 I will be your best friend as well.

we've had this discussion before bel. pc is great for solo gaming, but nothing beats the console for a group of buddies having a few frosty ones and playing some vids.
