My PS3 was great for the ability to play all the PS2 games. I think my system overheated with the blue light and won't turn on now. I could probably fix it by opening it up and using a heat gun on the mothering board to resaunder some of the circuits, but not sure if it'll last heavy usage.
Regarding selling games, I'm not a big fan of ebay. Do you know if amzn marketplace may be an alternative to sell them?
Only the original versions of the PS3 had that ability. Later models had no backwards compatability, but offered downloads of older games through PSN.
As for the topic at hand, the PS3 is still going to be a viable system for at least a year after the PS4 comes out. You have to remember that they are only now getting to the maximum capabilities with the engine, so we are sure to see some great looking games into 2014.
As well, usual first version consoles of the next generations suffer from bugs. The original PS3s and Xbox 360s are rare to find, and were upgraded over the years to include larger hard drives, software and hardware fixes, etc.
Pennies on the dollar? Wow, in this case I'll just donate the games and find a charity to write me a receipt for at or near market retail value.
I pre-ordered from Sony ( did the same on PS3). Regarding the repair, it was super quick and if they can't repair your unit they send you a like model. I was concerned that I wouldn't get the original but it came as promised. Also, it will come with a 90 day warranty.
Did you have to send it in? Or, do you know if dropping it by a Sony store is an option?
Well, tomorrow is the big day. Tracked my order and it's due to arrive via FedEx tomorrow. DH and DS are like little kids waiting for Santa! Target has the games buy 2 get 1 free.
All I can do is...shake my head!
Lexie, Amazon and Fry's had that promo too!
What games did you end up getting?
I got a copy of Killzone but the console is still in the box unopened haha. I also preordered the xbox one. Hopefully I will have the chance to try out both consoles this weekend.
The guys i play online with are splitting over the new systems. I wont get the new xbox one until later (jan, feb). Some are getting it right away and a few are moving to the PS4. I am too old to be playing online LOL but do enjoy it. I will have to buy 2 when i do since my son plays as well. He wants a PS4 but I am not willing to go that route yet.
