Yeah, playstation stopped working, ps2 began to struggle to read discs, ps3 just got yellow light. My dreamcast still works and n64 work as if brand new.

My nintendo wii was a launch wii and it died. Nintendo refused to refund me everything I downloaded onto it even though they said that the system's failure was not of my own doing but rather the manufacture's.

This playstation thing...they are going to charge me to refurbish it. Incredible.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Poster Wake, and Forum Discussion

ur own fault for using it to play games

on a serious note, i'm pretty sure the console unit is a loss leader and they make their $ on game sales, which makes a decision not to repair one for free pretty terrible. No wonder Sony are losing millions.

At least when your xbox breaks because of ****ty design (low quality heat contacts, they spent $0.10/unit instead of $0.50 or something and it means they all break) they repair it free of charge.

I think its a loss leader for a certain % of the product life cycle, but eventually they recoup all the development costs, although this may not apply to PS3 as I think there is some special circumstances due to the blu ray player. But yes, they primarily make money from games and licensing.

MS was basically forced to add extended warranties to the 360 because of public pressure, they also admitted there were design flaws and they went to market knowing them. In the long run this will pay off, but they had to do it. Sony has been lucky that the 360 has overshadowed the PS3 problems, which were not as bad, but still present. I know a few people who have had problems with the PS3.

Oski's weird. His posts are either giant walls of legal text or a gaggle of highly volatile hit-or-miss 1-liners. He could be a really good contributor if he polished things up quite a bit though.

I haven't caught up with the last 400 posts in the Penn State thread but I can only assume that's where the ban occurred?

I'm completely convinced its rapture time. Earthquakes, hurricanes, fall snowstorms, Rapistgate(#2 in Pennsylvania), Boise is going to the national title game, catchers getting kidnapped, Eli looks like a legit QB. World's ****ing ending.

Edit: This is all SE's fault for banning Epip, greear10, TuT, adgci leaving. Seriously. We all need to start praying to Nash Head.

Its the 2nd sequel to Morrowind, best rpg 3d open world type game ever.

No one does these types of games better than Bethesda and they've spent a ton of time/money on this one.

It's pretty much a lock for game of the year, especially given what I've seen from the early reviews.
