last night i was playing ps3 and the power went out. I turn the ps3 on today, and it says something like "ps3 system was turned off improperly and could have caused corruption, running some test if corruption is found will take 2-3 hours to correct" wtf does that mean? It did some check and i can play games now but is my hdd corrupt?

It mean like it just turned off unexpectly. Nothing is seriously wrong. It happen when you unplug while it's on or like a power outage. Your HDD is fine. When you get to that 2-3 hours screen just press O. I gotten that thing like 50 times and my PS3 slim is working just fine.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

It's fine, it says that anytime the console shuts down improperly. You'd only have to worry about data becoming corrupt if the PS3 was in the process of writing save data to the HDD at the time it abruptly got shutoff.

Wouldn't worry about it, It's happen to me a few times (got the message too) and nothing ever came of it
