No James. I am done with Sony. I have never really had any luck with any of their products. My cousin purchased a 42″ lcd from them and it has been a bigger nightmare for him as the Playstation 3 is for me. I went through 4 Sony dvd players in only a year. Yet, I buy some el cheapo dvd from Best Buy 4 years ago, and has never given me a single problem. I have come to the conclussion that it is all Sony's fault for producing inferior products. For those of you who have not had your blu ray drive, then get ready because it will. I just spoke to Jeff from Sony PS3 tech support, they are only reliable for up to 300 hours of cumulative play before they generally start crashing. So ha…..even Sony says they suck. Luckily, I just bought me a new samsung blu ray player. Im happy, I can watch my 60 blu rays again.
Only good for 300 hours!!! wow id hate to imagine the hours mine has been working….in the thousands easy….January 28, 2009 at 3:07 am #20722parnakasMember

xbox broke in 3 weeks, no lieJanuary 28, 2009 at 3:14 am #20723lowcarbsMember
i bought my ps3 2 weeks after launch, i still have it, 2 years after the fact.
i've yet to come across one problem, and i've put probably 60 hours this WEEK into gta4.
people that make these kinda posts make me laugh.
A. Looking for attention to start some flame war.
B. 360 Troller coming around to start some flame war.
either way, lame attempt.January 28, 2009 at 4:05 am #20725shadeblackMember
i'it's a shame to see someone so angry at something when not understanding the current circumstances fully.
seeing as how you're american, you should already know that it's economy has been depleting quite rapidly for many years. not to say other countries aren't – the UK is currently under quite a similar crisis as of late.
However, I think your descision to have neither consoles is wise. If I were you, I'd focus on those studies so that you don't end up trapped within our countries current, and more than likely future problems as well.
But just because you had some bad luck with a piece of hardware doesn't mean the company sucks. you're a fool to think that. we can all hide behind our opinions but facts can't be denied. I strongly doubt Sony will be going out of business anytime soon.January 28, 2009 at 4:14 am #20727edge4eva32Member
Shadeblack, your post has been one of the most respectful so far. However, read farther up. I and many of my friends and family, have had horror stories with Sony. So it is far from just one piece of hardware. There have been 4 dvd players, 2 TV's, 2 Playstation 3's, and a Vaio Laptop invovled in my decision to boycott Sony entirely. Actually read the stock market reports. Sony has had consecutive 100 million dollar losses month after month. That is a stone solid fact. So I am not hiding behind my opinions, Im relying on facts. I hope and pray that no one has to go through so many consoles with Sony as I have had to in the last 4 months. The funny thing is I play less than many of the other gamers here. I do watch blu rays as well as play games. I probably watch 1 blu ray per week, and maybe 20 hours of play time per week. So I don't over play the console. I just keep getting crap after crap from Sony. Only 18 months, then I will be a RN. So I'll be able to work in hospitals where there will always be jobs and great money. So I'll be able to buy any game I want at anytime I want. The funny thing about this whole ordeal is that I was one of the biggest PS3 fanatics. I would tell everyone to get rid of Xbox 360's to get a PS3. How wrong I was to convince them of such a costly mistake.January 28, 2009 at 4:44 am #20729shadeblackMember
strange that you've gone through all of that. in my own experience, all of my sony products in past have been nothing but quality, and have never has a single problem with any.
I've said this in another thread… But I actually prefer Samsung products – i've always wondered what it'd be like if Samsung made a games console… One can only imagine.
Anyway, I'm not gonna get involved with argument here. You should do exactly what you want, and I indefinitely respect that descision. good luck with your studies! 😀January 28, 2009 at 11:41 am #20731kingawolMember
mate if Samsung did a console it would rock…. it would have a stylish slick design , wouldnt be huge like ps3 , would be an interesting idea…..January 29, 2009 at 12:15 am #20741

articulate?!?!?!? kidding lol!
edge4eva, will you be leaving the forum then?
my ps3 may well break at some point in the future, but i already have well over 300 hours clocked up on it so far, so i am far and beyond what “Jeff” says.January 29, 2009 at 12:21 am #20744
Just been looking through what everyone has said & i cant help but laugh at anyone who belives the 300 hour thing is true. LOL i share a Ps3 with my brothers and together we probz play 70-80 hours a week, while leaving the ps3 on for 8 hours+ at a time. Ive had my Ps3 for just over a year now LOLJanuary 29, 2009 at 12:36 am #20751edge4eva32Member
No. I will not be leaving. I love pissing people off on message boards. Oh and if you don't believe me about the over 300 hours of cumulative play, then contact Sony technical support yourself. Ask to be transferred to the technical support department, because the automated system is horrible!!! That is how I got ahold of Jeff.January 29, 2009 at 12:39 am #20753
its probely says it in small print in the ps3 manual so if it breaks sony can say something “well you were lucky, we only expect them to last 300hrs, oh & it says here in the manual when you bought it so were not responsible if it breaks” (btw i talking about the 300hr thing)January 29, 2009 at 12:39 am #20754

Just a note but if you send anything back either take out the hdd (if it doesnt break warranty) or back everything important on to memory stick or something…January 29, 2009 at 12:51 am #20757
i backed all my stuff onto a mem stick but the ps3 won’t read the stick enymore.
