Suddenly I am looking for a PS3 console

Postby spartn1 » Thu Nov 29, 2012 11:50 am

Our Playstation 3 died last night. Wish it happened before all the black Friday deals ended. If anyone sees a deal on a new PS3 please pass it on.

Thanks

Read about the newest models with 250gb ($269.99) and 500gb ($299.99) hard drives. The slimmer design make them easier to transport. The 250GB model, which launches on September 25th, will be sold in a bundle with the game Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception The 500GB PS3 hit the shelves October 30th as a bundle with Assassin’s Creed III.

Contact Sony. I had this same problem happen to my "George Forman" style PS3. It was one of the first ones that came out, so it was well beyond its warrenty. I contacted them about possible repair and they said they could exchange the PS3 for a new, slim model for around $100. It definitely beat spending the extra money for a new system. The downside is that they can't transfer your saved game progresses.

I will contact them. Thanks. In the meantime if anyone comes across a new PS3 for $199 I am interested.

Thanks

Haven't heard a lot of positive things about the slim consoles. Most 160gb consoles are 249 this week. Have to keep an eye out for a gift card incentive or lightening type sale.
