OFFICIAL PS3 THREAD

Alright. So here's the deal...

Since this system has been out for a while, most of you probably know what it is. Therefore, I'm not going to waste space with useless information that can always be asked in here anyways if you need an answer.

If you have a question regarding the PS3's hardware specifications, feel free to ask here. There's plenty of knowledgeable people that will answer your questions rather quickly.

As for the rules of the thread. Well, just stay on topic, if you can. This is NOT a GDT. It's fine to go off topic for a bit, but if it's going on for more than a page or two, I'll kindly ask you to stop. If you don't, your posts will be deleted. This is the PS3 thread. Keep discussions to and about the PS3, the hardware it can use (HDTVs, High-Def Media Players, etc) and software it can use (Media streaming programs, PS3 themes, Blu-Ray discs, games, etc.).

I will allow talking about the Xbox 360 in here as long as it has an actual meaning (such as referencing screen shots of a multiplatform game) and isn't distasteful towards the system. If you don't think the 360 is a great system, you're an ignorant idiot.

Now, on to the good stuff:

CURRENT PS3 DEALS

I'm only going to provide links with minimal explanations here. If anyone knows of ANY deals going on, post them up so that I can update this post to refer to your... post.

NEED A CABLE FOR YOUR PS3?
We all know that for some stupid reason, Sony decided not to include any cables that allow the sending of HD signals to your TV when you buy your PS3. People come in here quite often asking about which cables work and, unfortunately, I have seen a few people go for Monster Cable's HDMI cables for over $150 (in some cases, over $200).

Let it be known that when it comes to wiring, the only real difference in quality is the shielding, and this only applies to a select number of cables. For HDMI, shielding is not an issue and quality cannot change. All the cable is doing is sending 1's and 0's.

Therefore, BUY YOUR CABLES FROM MONOPRICE.COM

Here are links to monoprice's HDMI cables which have been proven to send out the same exact signal quality and strength as Monster Cables:

6 feet - $3.56
10 feet - $4.74
15 feet - $4.47

My ancient 40 gb died last night. The bluray laser burned out from what google shows, and Sony said it would cost 150-200 to fix.

Thinking about just going out and buying the new 320 gb slim with playstation move bundle instead. It's not that much more and I can just give the other to my lil brother so he can play demos on and use as a dvd player.

It would depend on the condition of the system and where you plan on selling it. Generally the backwards compatible models, 60gb in particular, are worth a little more money. Your best bet is to check BST threads & see other users asking prices. If you are selling it on Ebay you can check completed listing for a general idea on what people have gotten for them on there. If you plan selling it local you can try looking on craiglist or other local classifieds.

That's kind of a vague number, did you call Sony directly and speak with a rep?

You can also check & confirm pricing on their website by just entering your serial & model number.

Edit: I just got off the with a Sony rep since my 80gb starting acting up again on Thursday

This is what I was told about their prices which all include shipping both ways.

The price to fix or replace a slim model is $99 plus tax.
The price to fix or replace a fat non BC model is $99 plus tax.
The price to fix or replace a fat backwards compatible model PS3 is $129 plus tax.

Sony also has a program where you can swap 20gb & 60gb models for a 120GB slim. The cost for a swap is $99 plus tax. Please confirm this if you would like in case I was misinformed.

If all your system needs is a new BR lens, it is actually a relatively easy and cheap repair to do yourself. Price for a replacement lens off Ebay are usually about $40-$70 depending on which model lens you need and if you get just the lens or an entire desk assembly. I've replaced a few of them and swap them out in about 30-45mins.

If you buy a new system you can also add a protection plan directly through Sony. I think it's $45 for an additional year of protection or $59 for two. I believe PS Plus subscribers get a discounted price of the 2 year plan for $45. This is on top of the standard one year warranty.

gun4hire knows nothing about hacking. You should have read his thread on NGU about awk and the pskinect being impossible and fake. It was obvious that he had no idea what the hell he was talking about and he was trying to take someone elses words and make them his own. He basically accused awk and the pskinect devs of being fake and not actually working on a new CFW. When in reality the pskinect isnt even supposed to be a new CFW, which just proves that guns4hire has no ****ing clue about the **** he spews through his mouth.

To answer how this affects awk. It doesnt, at all. Awk is creating a PSN replacement for people who are running 3.55 CFW, which means any OFW released after 3.55 has absolutely nothing to do with him or his project because he didnt update to the new FW and it would be counter productive to do so.

All this nonsense that guns4hire is spewing about has no relevance to awks project, even though guns4hire seems to think it does...because hes a ****ing retard.
