Point is you have to pay far more for a ps3.......it would take over 2 years to even out repaying the ps3 back over the xbox...... with live

Does that include all the repairs for the 360?

What repairs? You mean the ones that haven't happened for some time and that were fixed free of charge?

My 360 got the red rings twice years ago and was replaced for free twice. It took them less time to return both Xboxs combined than it did for Sony to restore their network anyway.

It appears your math is wrong somewhere.

The basic PS3 is 249. Includes 160GB harddrive and infinity years of PSN.
The basic 360 is 199. No harddrive, and if you want to play online for one year, bump the total to 259.

Damn amazing deal. Also, if you had PS+ right now (just yesterday), they updated it so that all PS+ get all the add-ons for Uncharted 2 for free.

Looks like Kirby and Zelda will be their only notable releases all year.

I wish Nintendo had waited until after the WiiU was released before abandoning the Wii.

my 40 gig ps3 just died, I was thinking about opening it up and trying a way to fix it, but I think i'm going to just buy a slim.

Anybody know of any sites that have have a nice cheap price? I know that the price is now 249 but I was looking to see if there is another place that offers a better price. thanks.

Damn that sucks.

Might attempt it this week. Will update on how it goes.

Forgot about the game for a bit then when I was browsing N4G here at work I stumbled on this review here which led me to a search on how to play it which led me to that.

I don't have the money for a new television. Also, my room is ****ing tiny. I would love an HDTV though. 32" 1080p probably?

Actually found an easier way to play it without doing all that crap. My only concern was if my data would be saved okay and someone said it saves fine on the Wii.

Will order the game when I get home and hopefully all goes well!
Edit: Ordered it now from work, figure I should get a head start for the shipping since its coming from the UK.

I don't know what you ended up using, but for anyone else I would recommend ModMii, it's super easy and took me around 5 minutes to mod my Wii.

The exclusive output on PS3 this year was ridiculous, and it's continuing into next year with Starhawk, Twisted Metal, Sly 4, Dust, Journey etc. So good.

Well it worked. Same steps but pretty much put on a different site than you posted and the steps were much easier to read. Game works and everything

Not bloody likely. That's his opinion. The recent rumors of leaked Microsoft...stuff that indicated a release in 2013-14 is far more credible.

So I'm a long time Xbox owner (had both 1 and 360) but want to get a PS3. Are the newer PS3 slims less prone to YLOD? Can I buy a backwards compatible PS3 in stores? Where is the best place to sell my Xbox besides Ebay?

thank you

EBay or Craigslist would probably be your best bet to sell your 360. You cannot buy a BC PS3 in stores anymore, only on eBay. I actually have the last SKU that was ever BC, which was the MGS4 bundle version. The slims are much less prone to YLOD mainly because it uses less power and also generates less heat, so there shouldn't be a problem with the soldering no the motherboard.

Just saying, if someone wants your 360, just sell it to them at a slightly discounted price, just figure out how much the games/systems are currently worth and put a discount on each of them and sell them, something like that.

Hope that helped.
