PS3's ******* broken, the yellow light of death is equivalent to the red ring of death on the 360.

Even if we get it fixed, we lose all the information on the hard drive.

And we can't eject the rental movie we have in the Blu-ray player.

****.

Oh, that's tough. Did you try leaving it for a bit? Maybe it will suddenly start working again if it cools down or something. That sucks about the memory though.

I hope you get it back in order before Kane and Lynch 2 comes out.

Get NEW Xbox 360 (http://img80.imageshack.us/i/xbox360slimboxed13068sc.jpg/)
Although losing all of your hard drive stuff really sucks... :(
If you had a 360 though, you could just take off the hard drive. he he, NOT A FANBOY

Yellow Light of death sucks more then RROD in that case. At least when your Xbox kicks the bucket you keep the hard drive.

Anyway, that really sucks some donkey balls. Hopefully you'll get it fixed in time for K&L2 :)

Well my console still hasn't broke down , it's nearly reaching its two year old birthday ...

*fears for the worst* ...

PLEASE DON'T Break Down PLEASE DON'T Break Down PLEASE DON'T Break Down PLEASE DON'T Break Down ...

I'll buy a 360 if my PS3 breaks down though , since i'm not that interested in online gaming , a 360 is much cheaper and ... oh no wait , you need Live for achievments ? **** THAT **** , PS3 FTW ! ...

Seriously though , **** it Slash , why the **** does it have to happen to you ...

I had a life once.
As did I my friend. Where I lived was once a beautiful village, greener than anything. We were a simple folk, living off the land. Then the English came, taking our wives and our land.

Woah, I'm getting off topic. Back on topic, does Sony have a repair center for PS3s? Also, how common is this yellow light problem anyway?

Slash , you got a Paypal account ? ...

**** this **** ! why did i had to be so superstitious , she's one in a million to faint out because of the ******* sun , i'm not leaving her so that the ******* feds could 'interrogate' her , *******s , i'm not letting them get to her ...

Give me the bag anywya , i'll carry them both ... i can do it ... i can do it ... it's not about saving the damn world , it's my own selfishness i'm feeding here ...

You don't have to have live to earn achievments on 360. Where did you hear that?

GrievousOdyssey
30th Jun 2010, 05:15
Then again , what's the use of achievements if there's nobody to look at ? ...

I mean trophies are different , trophies are those thing that you would like to look at even with nobody around , achievement on the other seems to be only made for people other than ourselves ... so , since i don't plan on paying for any Online materiel , no one will be looking at my achievement cabinet on 360 , destroying its purpose entirely ...

Achievements = Trophies, Trophies = Achievements. No matter how you look at it. End of discussion.

And, Slash: my sincere condolences.

SlashPrower
30th Jun 2010, 11:32
Dad's going to try and fix it tonight, because if we send it to Sony we have to pay 150 dollars and wait around 6 weeks for them to try and fix it, try being the operative word- they could just say "lol sorry, couldn't fix it" and not give you a new one or a refurbished one because your warranty expired. Even if they do fix it, all the memory gets wiped.

Besides, this way we either get all our data saved...or we get a broken PS3.

At least my dad knows what he's doing- he knows a lot about electronics, he built himself a really nice computer from scratch once >_____>

EDIT: And Brackstone, they can repair it but for reasons stated above it's not worth it. I think the yellow light of death isn't common at all (certainly not as much as the red ring) but it has occured a few times, usually among launch PS3s.

Umm, try moving all the stuff in your HD to another storage device? There has to be some way to save all your stuff. Although really all you lose are gamesaves, seeing as everything would be liked to your account.

My sincere condolences.

*Thank god for 360 having an external HD*

I like the trophy disposition better , it's less confusing ...

You seem to care about these saved data alot , what do you have ? i mean apart from game saves that i can always 're-do it' , videos i can always re-download from the PSN , the only substantial thing i have to loose would be my photo album , but i doubt you have a photo album as huge as mine , so ...

What is Slash hidding in her PS3's hard drive ? Topic of the day ! ...

Using his fantastical skills of amazement, my dad fixed the PS3 and preserved the data. I didn't get the exact details of everything he did. Something involving the motherboard and sautering.

Whatever, it works perfectly now.

1.) I hope by "awesome" you mean "mediocre".

2.) I'll be outside most of the weekend.

There was actually a sighting of a giant black bear and its cub just a few houses down an hour ago.

On a side note i'm heavily disapointed that this game failed miserably ...
Unless the reviewers were just being harsh ...
