OMFG. I just did an update for Black Ops 2 last night, started to play one game and then it died.
I swear, its a conspiracy by Sony to force you to buy a new unit right before the PS4 comes out in November (rumored, not confirmed).
I guess I should count myself lucky. It's the ORIGINAL PS3 from launch day. All my friends have already replaced theirs and are surprised mine has lasted that long.
My error seems to be the green light of death. I've tried the reset/recover procedure, but I get the 2 beeps and still nothing. It BRIEFLY went to the home screen, but it died before I could get through settings to find the recover/restore option.
My wife has ok'ed me getting the $299 PS3 Legacy bundle with GT and 500gb so I might just bite the bullet. Is that a good package? Or should I go for the White one that comes with one year of Playstation Store Plus?
My PS3 serves as my movie and HT hub, so I can't really go without it for the next 5-6 months. Well...I could just get a $50 Blu-ray player, but then I'd have game withdrawal syndrome.
Decisions....decisions.....The new Xbox One is looking pretty good too.
