    4 PS3's in 3 days!!! OMFG! WTF? Lol

    I'm on my 4th PS3 since thursday night lol.And have got to say its been the worst 3 days i've has for a long time.
    For the last few weeks my 160gb slim has been playing up and unable to read discs.I've has it apart twice to clean lens but to no avail.So I decided to trade it(for half value due to it not working properly)towards a brand new 500gb super slim in red.Wow i thought.but I soon discovered that due to the new design(top loaders)they are extremely fucking loud and had to turn my TV way too loud to drown the sound of the disc drive out ffs.So I decided to take it back the next day and get my money back.
    They said as it wasn't broken they would only give me pre-owned value for it 200 quid(it cost 260 only 20 hrs prior)so I accepted and got a 320gb slim,happy days i thought,until I tried it only to find it wouldn't play anything,not even fucking dvd's ffs!!!
    So this morning I took it back and swapped it for ANOTHER 320gb slim,which,at the moment atleast seems to be working fine.
    So........since thursday I've been the owner of 4 seoerate PS3's and I think,GAMES most regular customer lol.

    Anyone else had any similar problems ?

    I have 2 PS3 consoles the fatty from release and a slim i bought 2 years ago and i run my fatty about 16 hours a day and no problems yet!!! it lasted me the entire generation life cycle so far

    Sorry for your loss that sucks to hear though good luck with the one you have now…So if you buy something used you don't try it out before you leave the store? This is why I NEVER buy USED items

    The only PS3-switch I had to make was when my old 80 GB fatty ran too tight on memory space, now I have a 250 GB super-slim. There's been issues, but no PS3 has failed on me yet.

    I'm an Electronics Boutique (Gamestop) manager and I have to say that your store seen you coming, if you still had the receipt they should have given you a full refund and not trade in price for the 500GB console when you brought it back as most gaming stores have a 30 guarantee that if you don't like it, you get your money back.

    Overall we as people should take proper care of our consoles don't just place them and play, unplug it dust vacuum the vents (fatboys) and turn them off properly when finished with them, get a dust cover as well....wise investment. I do this and i'm still on my first PS3 not bragging or nothing.

    That sucks.

    I still have my original PS3 I bought in 2008. I installed a bigger HDD and a skin to protect it (and make it look pretty) and it still runs great. I spray it out with canned air and dust it every week, I'm sure that helps.

    If possible I would go somewhere else from now on. Returning a console after one day of use to exchange for another one because you feel it's too loud is not unreasonable.

    Considering you traded in one of those because "it was too loud" I find your whole story hard to believe. So no, it's never happened to me.

    Wow sorry to hear about your case of bad luck bro but i have never heard of something like that before. Hopefully, you'll be able to keep this one longer than 24 hours

    I've never had that bad of luck and I hope I don't. I've got two PS3's and I've never had any problems with either of them although I barely ever use my second one.

    I had the first fatty and I got the yellow light of death, and bought the slim verison...which played fine, lost a lot of data from the first ps...but then a few months into it started acting up turning on and off on its own...

    i sent it in to Sony, due to the hard drive crashing and got it back a few days later..two weeks in to it the hard drive crashes again..and I kick the shit out it...

    i ended up trading my 360 to my brother for his ps3 and that's what I've been using...I keep ventilated and dust free...

    Well damn, that's some shit luck there. Hopefully you won't have to get another PS3 too soon.

    And I've only gotten one PS3, and it still works three years later. Hopefully it lasts.
