  • PS3 is toast!

    Took my PS3 in due to it wouldn't update past 40%... it would stall out and hang there, so after a number restarts I took it in to nearby gaming shop (PNP Games). They sent it out to Edmonton, couple provinces away took them almost a month to tell me my GPU is gone and the system is toast. The shop refunded me diagnostic cost, and gave me $75 in store credit for taking so long. NICE thank you very much... but when I asked why they can't repair it, they didn't have an answer!

    I'm getting a second opinion... just don't think I should junk it unless this repair is more than the price of a brand new system. My PS3 is only 3 years old..

      sadly I don't care for it. nhl14 sucks on it, haven't really heard any good stuff about it, plus if I could play my ps3 games I probably get it, but I cant.. kinda retarded.

        My mistake - its $200 for the repair and labor of course,, plus its a 50/50 chance it will work. the slim PS3's are pron for this due to lack of air circulation... ugh...

          I have had the same ps3 since 2006. Played it everyday since than, got the yellow light of death couple of months ago but my brother fixed it by putting the mother board in the oven and cooking it for 5 minutes cooling it off than he put some shit on it whatever. but hey 9 years with the same computer. def worth the money
