No, formatting of the 320GB drive was way quicker, it is the actual file transfer which took this long. Not sure what the PS3 is doing in the process - i really thought it had crashed at some point


Oh, ok. I was going to say...lol

Well, hopefully my PS3 lasts for a long time.

The video chip of my launch model failed, got a new fat model as it was thankfully still under warranty.

In 2011 the disc drive of this replacement unit failed, so i bought a Slim model, which is still working perfectly fine!

But since i'm trying to skip the next generation entirely i went a little nervous and bought a spare Slim (not Super Slim) just before the prices went up


If your PS3 dies (and assuming you've backed up all your save game files), is getting a new PS3 as simple as starting it up and just logging in like normal? Obviously you have to re-install your games, but are the system settings and everything carried over?


Some games like Mass Effect and Dark Souls are copy protected.

I bought a slim back in the spring of 2011, my first PS3, and it's still working just fine.

Also, for an FYI, what are some of the symptons of an impending YLOD? lol


RLOD, which is your PS3 will auto shutdown on its own, after around 1 hour of gaming. It will get worse until you couldn't even turn on your PS3 (YLOD).

Damn. It seems like that happening is almost inevitable after a few years. At least from other people's experiences.

Had a 60GB Phat PS3 which could play PS1 and PS2 games. I sold it after not even turning it on for probably a year or 2.

Got a 320GB Slim last July due to finding out how many exclusives are on the PS3 along with how many games were available through PS+.

I still use my 360 for multiplatforms and it's my main console, but my PS3 is used for exclusives and I still need to get a ton of games for it.

I've got two, a 60gb fat we got at launch, and a slim later on. The fat's in the living room, while the slim is in the side office room.

Mostly got the second one for work purposes, but both the girlfriend and I play it all the time, and we play way different games, so it's easier to jump on it without having to bother the other person. We also enjoy playing games online together with them, if the game doesn't have local co-op.

I bought a 60gb used and a 250GB slim. No problems with either. Hundreds of hours put on both of them. My only issue with the fatty was that it put out enough heat to warm up my room considerably and I'm heat sensitive. Bought a slim because they reduced power consumption by about 2/3rds.
