My PS3 connects fine, while my PSP and 360 do not 50% of the time, does this mean Microsoft is to blame?

Hardware either works or it doesn't, it doesn't choose to work for you sometimes and not at other times.

It's your ISP, not the hardware.


Or it could be the hardware in the PS3. It's still hardware, and it still can break.

If it was hardware, it wouldn't work at all. Hardware works until it breaks, it doesn't "break" and then only work "sometimes".

And that is not true. For it to not work at all would mean it's broken completely.

A perfect example: HTC and Droid phones. The charging port occasionally works and occasionally it doesn't. The reason: The port itself is disconnecting from it's connection.

Are you really trying to compare a phone to a dedicated system? That's stupid.

I'm sorry if I understand the concept of hardware failure and you don't.
Things break and they have different ways of reacting to it breaking.

But since you want only an example of dedicated consoles: disk read errors with the 360. Sometimes it won't happen and sometimes it will.

Disk errors are not a hardware failure, it's a malfunction yes, but not a failure. Comparing disk read errors to a connection problem is retarded.

I'm sorry if you cannot understand connection problems.

How the hell is it not a hardware failure? Can you play games if you get a disk read error? No. It's a failure no matter how you spin it.

I think this really has to do with you just not accepting the fact that a playstation had hardware failure. If he can't connect with his PS3 but the rest of his systems can, that's a wifi receiver failure in the PS3.

Don't try to argue with someone who is more knowledgable than you about technology.

Maybe you should reword this, cause from how it looks now, disc read errors are a good thing.

But then again, they are a failure, since it's the console failing to read the disc.

Yeah I can see how it would be read wrong. I am kinda baked and drunk right now( Go Colorado!), so I can't form my thoughts the right way that I want to.

My baqsic point was comparing a disk read error to a connection problem is stupid, as they are 2 different things and in no way, shape, or form related.
