    PROOF that the PS3 sucks MAJOR NUTS: Or at least for me...

    Mmkay, anyway, I'll sum the first part up all quick-like for ya'.

    I got a PS3 for Christmas, got Resistance (The ONLY good game that was out for it until about two weeks ago.) and loved it. Played it for two weeks, got over it. Either way, I always liked the Wii better. MUCH better. But I never had any problems with my PS3. So, after getting over Resistance, I didn't play with my PS3 much. Maybe a few hours every two or so weeks. And so, about three days ago, I got Oblivion for the PS3 'cause I figured I'd need more than one game for the PS3 if I was to declare all games ****. Even though I tried out most other games, which actually DID turn out to be ****. So, just like Resistance, Oblivion was one of the only TWO games that were worth the 62 bucks you'd have to spend on them. Anyway, I played Oblivion, and ****IN' LOVED it. Great game, 5 out of 5 if I had to rate it. So, in the first day, while I was explorin' around the world, NUMEROUS times I'd fall INTO rocks or some **** like that. The game would glitch severely, and I would fall into an abyssal plane or some squished area, either way, I couldn't move. I would have to start from the autosave, which wouldn't be too far from where I was. And you can't blame that on the game, either. For one, similar glitches happen in other PS3 games, and secondly, that doesn't happen on the 360 version, ever. ((Not sure about the PC version though.)) So, that's just to start off...
    Next incident PISSED ME OFF. SEVERELY. Just yesterday, while I was playing and picking a lock, the ****in' thing FREEZES on me. So, now I have a ****ed up PS3, that I have to send in. After it froze, it wouldn't shut off, so I had to use the switch in the back. Afterward, I'd try and start the thing, and it would turn on, but with no signal or anything coming out of the HDMI cord, and it wouldn't let me turn on the controller. After calling Sony, they told me that they couldn't tell me what was wrong with it and I'd have to send it in, but before I could send it in, I would have to back up all my data and erase all my personal info. How, exactly, am I supposed to do that if it won't start?
    Luckily, I managed to get it to turn on ONCE. I backed everything up, but it screwed up again and froze right before I selected, "Reformat." So, I got my data, but what now? Well, I managed to get the thing to start up for about ten minutes at a time. Which wasn't anywhere near long enough to reformat everything. So, I put a fan near the PS3 to see if that would do anything. It actually did, surprisingly. The PS3 isn't freezing, but it takes about 5 minutes to load any selected option in any menu. So, I've reformated it, and I guess I'm sending it in soon. And yes, I tried to use it again after reformatting it.

    So, long story short, PS3 + Broke = Suck. D:

    thats sucks!
    I remember the guys that made Oblivion complained...about something wrong with the PS3..not sure...but they said it the system was crap and it was way too difficult to get it on the PS3!

    Anyways I most likely will pick up a 360 instead.....but if more RPGs are on the PS3...well... sorry I have no choice!

    360 sucks and i have complete proof too.
    when i bought mine it froze on the first day.

    oh ya all PCS suck too, cos when i first bought mine it froze.

    i didnt even bother reading ur post

    funny thing my wii froze a few times b4 too, i had to return it for a new one.
    if i dont say wii sucks that wouldnt be too fair on all the other things that froze on me?
    i could be here all day telling u what else sucks.

    Yeah, y'know, you're right. Sorry, I was pissed beyond belief. Really, not all PS3's did this. I changed the title. But still, you have to admit, way more PS3's had errors than any other console.

    ...AAAAAND ****. Now I'm forced to hate the Wii, too... Some crazy crap is happening on the video output on my Wii now. >.< Now that's unfortunate. And no, it's nothing related, they're on opposite sides of my TV, and it couldn't be my TV, I already checked. >.< So, I have to send 'em both in. Hopefully Nintendo will be easier to deal with, instead of saying, "Now get your data off the system that you can't even start up." xP

    Well, you do realize... Not all PC's are the SAME model. And it's a little thing called a virus. I doubt that there are any PS3 viruses out there yet. xP
    By the way, I'm guessing you're a PS3 fanboy. You don't belong here. D:
    And yeah, I know I said all PS3's suck, but not all do. But the glitches, like falling in rocks and walking through walls and all that on Oblivion are the PS3's model's fault. Not just mine. And a lot less 360's and BARELY any Wii's froze this early on in the race. Just you y'know.

    Lying = bad, little one.
    Grammar = friend.

    sounds like you either got a rare PS3 that needs to be sent in for a replacement (happens sometimes. Its happened to the Wii, Xbox360, so expected to happen with a PS3), or you messed up the firmware somehow.

    Another thing i can think of is that perhaps there was something causing the PS3 to over heat. This can be caused by being stored in an area where the vent is covered, or somewhere that is not at room temp. You made sure the fan was working also? It is possible to install something that will brick your console, so i hope you werent trying to mod it without knowing what you were doing. If those are not the cases then its simply a factory error in the making of the PS3 and it can be sent in for a replacement. One guy said he sent in his cheaper ps3 and they sent him back a free 60gig one.

    finally, i dont think this is the case, but the last possibility is that Bethesda didnt test out their product very well (oblivion) and it bugged out everything. In this case the problem would be on the developer for not properly play testing their product for the console and making the necessary tweaks.

    Anyways, you should be fine as long as the fault wasnt on your end.

    Atleast the Ps3 didn't altogether die on you like most 360s did at launch. I guess by your logic the 360 sucks too, but even more.

    You should invest in a good surge protector. That can sometimes help for those of poor/old wiring in homes.

    1) not all ps3 are the same model either.
    2) it wasnt a virus when my pc froze, it was a dumb mix of hardware
    3) dont just assume im a ps3 fanboy, cause im not. i love my wii to death and thats how i found this forum, to find release dates and such for the wii, but instead i found some people like u
    4) u generalized in your topic, change it then
    5) early on in the race? so you've been keeping track hey? FANBOY! i dont give a flying crap about the race, i just said what i heard from news, alot of 360s suck, and i've heard a few cases of wii's freezing, and same with ps3, but 360 the most. Once again.... i dont care whether it was early in the race or not, they froze alright?

    edit: oh ya wheres your grammar mate?
    hint: stop putting apostrophes EVERYWHERE WHERE THEY DONT BELONG!

    well i could be wrong considering im from australia and our english is slightly different.

    oh and if assuming that im little whether in age or size makes u feel slightly superior in your little virtual world then you have u problems

    um. yes. yes they are. once i see a PS3 with new hardware (like new CPU or GPU) then ill agree with you on that one. about the PC statement, im guessing you eather didnt build your own PC and dont know how to maintain it or you did build your own PC but just dont know how to do it correctly.
