    Yes and no. 40, 60 and 80gb models (ie the phatty) break their warranty if opened (just to clean, change hard drive, whatever. however, you can change the hard drive on the slim without voiding the warranty. Not sure about opening it up though.
    I'm pretty sure, not 100% mind; that the above is incorrect. You can open all versions and change HDD without voiding the warranty, just be careful of the screws are they're known to be stiff. But yeah, opening the console itself WILL void the warranty.

    You can change the hard drive on the older PS3s without voiding the warranty - source.
    Upgrading the HDD will not void the warranty, however, the consumer takes full responsibility when upgrading the HDD.

    Oh, I apologise. On another forum I was on, a big part of the craze over the slim was "being able to change the hard drive without voiding the warranty". Either I've remembered it wrong or it was bad information, probably the former thought haha.

    I was right in the first place. My knowledge on PS3s should not be questioned tbh. :pierre:

    While I'm still not too taken by Heavy Rain, I may try to drop into HMV tomorrow at lunchtime if my day isn't too busy. Supposedly there's "an exclusive demonstration of key in-games scenes, and an opportunity to get hands-on before you buy" - though if that just means that they'll have the demo running, I won't be too impressed! :p:

    Edit: thinking about it, though, there are at least three HMV stores in central Manchester, so picking the right one might not be immediately straightforward! :holmes:

    What update? I thought I downloaded a patch a few days ago but the squads are still the same. I tried the "update squads" function but it said it was up to date already.
    The Squad Update.

    Worked for me, as now i am playing as Pompey in MM & have all the players loaned & acquired on free transfers in Jan.

    It only got released today. Literally about 10am.. The previous patch you dl'd is for that lame ass Ultimate Team game add-on.

    :yep:

    It's on the Edit Squad > Download Latest Squads... bit.

    If it says you already have updated the squads, wait 2-3 mins then try again.

    I just get distracted way too easily!! Though I found an easy place on Chapter 19 to get the 75 kills in a row trophy...the enemies keep going for the machine gun and I was just sat there for about 5 mins shooting them as they tried it. :mmm: So much easier than actually trying to get 75 kills without getting downed even though my best killstreak up to that point way 64 but I fell off a cliff IIRC and ruined it.

    I can't really be bothered playing it tbh. I much prefer my football.

    Edit:
    I have an urge to play it. :lol:

    1 page of Fifa 10 talk already. Post #5454 to #5471.
    Bah there were about 10 unread pages in total, had a quick skim through, didn't see too much football talk. I'm too tired to read anything in detail. Missed much?
    I completed BS2 whilst away

    Speaking of eBay, any news on this? I'm guessing not... clicky.

    "Not a registered user" :no:
    There's a surprise :rolleyes: I've received nothing. Oh well, guess it's over to PayPal to try and get my money back...once I'm a bit more awake.
