Hm, is that common at all? First time I've heard of it.

Don't worry, GTA comes out tomorrow night so im sure my Xbox will 3 red light by the end of the day.

Was common on PS2s but this is the first PS3 I've heard of dying like this.

I had a PS3 brick when the power went out while the Firmware was updating, but that would happen to any system that uses a HD and upgradable system software, but never this. I'm sure there are a few deffective systems out there, there will always be. However you cant really even come close to comparing it to the 360, which had over a 30% fail rate after 2 years.

Sorry for your bad luck. Never heard of this happening elsewhere, I know about half a dozen people that have one right now.

Never heard of that happening..

I mean my ps2 lasted like 7 years. That's one thing Sony does do well.

It's not as common as the 360. My buddy had the same thing to him a couple of weeks ago...I had a 360 brick on me within 2 minutes of playing it straight out of the box...I returned it and a couple of months later bought the ps3 for christmas...5 months later, BAM...dead in the water....:rolleyes2:

You are just unlucky I think.

More common than you would think. MY PS3 lasted less than two weeks. Same thing. Did not read disc. Taken back to Future Shop. At least I got a couple months out of my first 360. :boohoo:

I just bought a PS3 a couple weeks ago because I had my 3rd Xbox 360 RRoD on me. Hope I have better luck with my PS3. Either way, Costco return policy FTW.

Doesn't anyone know how to do the towel trick with the 360, it actually works, did it on my friends (I'm a Ps3 man), and it worked strong for about another 3 months (that was luck) before it RROD.

never ever ever never ever ever never ever ever never never NEVER NO NEVER EVER NO NEVER

ever

buy a monster cable.

www.monoprice.com for all cables

monster is an absolute ripoff, it should be illegal

There is no better place to buy cables than Monoprice. I outfitted my house with some 65 foot and some 35 foot HDMI's in-wall during construction as well as some component and they all work flawlessly. Monoprice is same or better quality than monster at a fraction of the cost.

Hey congrats man that is fast! I'm on my 3rd PS3, the 2nd one I had to send to Sony and I think after sending it out I waited over 2 weeks for it to come back.
