    Screw Sony!

    my ps3's blu-ray drive broke today and those criminals want 150 plus shipping and tax to fix the damn problem. i'd just buy a new ps3 and get a freakin warrenty before i pay that much for a repair.

    it really pisses me off cause a lot of people have this problem lately and it's dominant in the 40gb models. my drive hasnt even seen that much use, i usually play downloaded games and movies on it and game on my 360. FML

    ... You're going to get a brand new PS3 for under $200?

    I feel your pain though, It's pretty ridiculous since Microsoft & Nintendo will repair broken consoles for free.

    I was looking to get a used 80GB BC PS3 in a few weeks from eBay, but I'm still unsure.

    no what i meant was if im going to pay that much to repair it i'll just fork over the extra 100 bucks and get a brand new one (just as long as its not an ugly ass slim model)

    it was about 2 years old. bought it late 2007.

    I hade the same issue with my 360. Its Hintsink was fucked so it kept overheating and its warranty was about 9 months gone, so I sold it to gamestop and bought a PS3 for Uncharted 2 and Demons Souls, among other exclusives, and I'ma get a new elite with the only two games I played on it for Xmas.

    What was your previous model? the original 80GB?

    nope it was the 40gb, apparently those are the most defective models.
