Depends where you take it. My place would test the fault in store with the customer present as would most of the "specialist" retailers. If no fault was found and he then said it was "intermittant" the only thing I would do would be to offer a replacement machine. Dont like giving money back lol!

well after a hour of Heavy Rain including all the freezing & sound cut out, it does seem to have a issue, even the update (that supposedly was meant to fix the issues doesn't seem to work) it could have something wrong with it.

not sure about Heavy Rain getting all this praise either, i played Fahrenheit a few years ago on the PC & they are very similar Rolling Eyes


wouldn't be so bad if there were some games coming out for it Sad

i have pre-ordered;

Wii - Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Xbox - Red Dead Redemption, Metro 2033, Halo Reach, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Formula 1, I Am Alive.

PS3 - GT5.

PC - Half Life 2 Episode 3.

nevermind, some you win some you lose, just hope that it will be working ok when i dust it off in 2011 as it seems that could be the year that the PS3 takes off Smile

having problems with my PS3 now Mad

well PSN account.

i have a PSN account, however when i go to sign-in to the PSN network online (via my PC) it lets me sign in using my email address & password, but it takes me straight to the account page where it says
Quote :

If you previously signed up to eu.playstation.com, enter your existing user name (email address) and password below and we'll transfer your details to your new account. You must do this to activate your new profile.

Yes, transfer my old account information

Please note that fields marked with * are mandatory.

yet when i put in my email address & password it says they are wrong, so i tried it a few times & then it came up with a forgotten your password thing so i put in my email address & it said it had sent a new password & the only button to press was a 'transfer my account one' so i clicked it, i still cannot get in well i can as it has my gamertag at the top of the screen but it won't let me actually do anything, i haven't received a email with the new password yet they still work on the PS3 console, has anyone else had to transfer there account ?

already getting pissed off with the PS3 all it ever wants to do is fooking update, i had one the other day & when i put it on today i had to download another update & then when i tried to play KillZone 2 i had to update that (which i couldn't do as my Internet is on a slow speed due to going over my download limit).

so can anyone help me & tell me how to transfer the account over Smile

it basically joins your PS3 up with others around the world & they work together as one big super computer to help with research into cancer & other things more info here http://www.scei.co.jp/folding/en/ it does it automatically & runs when your PS3 isn't being used for gaming, when its doing its stuff you can watch it, also you get a map of the world that shows all the other people currently running it Smile

why is it so hard to get hold of them PSN points cards Sad

without them you cannot get any of the DLC for the games, this is really putting me off buying games for the PS3 Mad you can get xbox points cards anywhere but the PSN ones are a nightmare, the only place i could find any was amazon but now they have said they don't know when they will be coming in now, i'm going to get Battle Field 2 & Split/Second soon & wanted to get them on PS3 but if any DLC comes out for them i won't be able to get any of it due the this problem, exactly how hard is it to make some paper cards with a scratchy off bit on them ?

i don't know if i can get them by putting my credit cards details in my PS3 via PSN to get points, i'm NOT doing that anyway.

have to say very disappointed so far the Uncharted games are the only ones i have enjoyed Sad Heavy Rain is boring, MGS4 is crap, Killzone2 is worse than MW2, & Aliens v Predator v people is Laughing the only game i'm looking forward to coming out is GTA4 Episodes & i have already completed them on the xbox (so good i want to play them again).

PSN cards are usually freely available Al, we sold out of them on Saturday, will be trying to re-order today.

I have bought loads of stuff from the PSN with my credit card details. The only ones I buy cards for are USA cards on Ebay in dollars so I can go in the USA store and download stuff that isnt out in the UK.

well my ownership of a ps3 hasn't lasted long, the latest update 3.41 has broke my ps3 thin, it keeps freezing at 99% !

i still only have the uncharted games, nascar 09, battlefield 2 & heavy rain (which is crap)

the ps3 has no games, a rubbish game-pad & constant unnecessary updates, i have canceled all my pre-orders for the ps3 & moved them over to my xbox, still got gt5 though on order but that may change as i'm seriously thinking of selling it, by far the worst console i have ever owned over 25 years a total waste of 250 Mad

That hasn't lasted long at all. Sorry to hear that Big-Al, I don't know if Stu_H still comes on here, as he may be able to tell you if you can fix it.


Xbox is still better.

The need for updates every time you put a new disk in is hugely irritating for me, I wish the machine would just work with no updates needed. Updates for what exactly?

I suppose I don't really like computer gaming as I did to care about niggles with consoles.

i haven't tried again, all that it does is is try & install the update & gets stuck at 99% & i cannot leave it on longer than a hour which i have done while it's at 99%, even if it's not online as a update has been downloaded it goes to install it, i can use the menus & downloaded it again which i have also done but it still does the same.

thats why i have stopped getting pc games way to much hassle now, with all the DRM issues as well, the problem has now passed to console though as most games are now released un-complete because the publishers know that they can release patches to fix the problems.

you never had any problems with the old consoles that weren't connected to the internet.

as you said sav it's every time you turn on the ps3 it has to update, i admit i hardly ever turn mine on as there is simply no games out for it i want Sad

Oh I don't have any issues with the updating, it works fine when I install new disks - but it takes so darn long. I mean the console takes 10 minutes to install updates - for what though? They are only new disks.

It is a shame Al that you've had to experience PS3 like this, I agree that when computer consoles were not Internet connected, selling unfinished games was simply not acceptable as publishers couldn't tell customers to get an Internet update. The selection of racing games on PS3 has been a concern of mine for a few years, although things may get better with GT5, F1 2010, Driver, NFS Hot Pursuit and the new Test Drive game.

i know, the first day i got it i couldn't play it due to update issues, i should have know then Rolling Eyes

i agree there is cause for concern on the games front, apart from gt5 there's nothing & i cannot help but wonder what gt5 will be like as the ps3 controller is rubbish i find, it is just lacking feel & not sensitive enough it's not to bad on nascar 09 but most are oval tracks & even though i have them extra trigger pad things on it there isn't enough travel on them.

got it working now, called sony customer services & they said they didn't believe me that a slim was locking up Rolling Eyes i said why am i calling then ?? i said check it out on this thing called the internet, the same thing that you send pointless updates on that damage peoples playstations, "ok ok" he said,
i had to hold the on button to reset it, then download the update on my pc then put it on a usb then stick that into the ps3 & update it like that, & it worked, i told him that i'm glad sony make a loss on the console & make the money back on the games, because i'm not going to get anymore ps3 games & its the worst console i have ever had.

the questionnaire thing at the end of the call to say how satisfied you were i gave the lowest for each Smile

you can only input the code five times, this will kill the second hand market dead Razz

just glad i haven't invested to much in the PS3.
