    All this talk of PS3s breaking down is worrying me. My PS3 has frozen a few times these past few days... very tempted to part exchange for a Slim...

    Worrying times... but FIFA 10 demo is coming out tommorrow, yay!

    I don't think it's firmware related. Sure, people are getting YLODs, but people have always been getting YLODs. I'd be hugely surprised if there was a significant increase in the number of them in the past week or two.

    I'll have a read of that later.

    The video doesn't work?? :hmmmm2:
    Come on mate, let it goooo! There's no point getting worked up about this even if 3.00 did affect the 60gb PS3's cos no way in hell would Sony ever offer free repairs or anything along that line the stingy *******s!!!

    Btw have you thought about how your gonna get yours fixed?

    Purchased - thanks!

    Reviews look very promising indeed. Ordered a 1.5TB external HDD as well so I will be able to use one of my old 500GB external HDDs to back up my PS3. :jive:
    Don't worry about the Buffalo drive mate... I have the 1TB version and it's great. It's what I use to back my PS3 up.

    But on the note of getting a new internal drive, I recommend research. I mean, I could be wrong, but what with the new design and all is it possible they've changed the drive format from 2.5 SATA or whatever it was? Worth a look just in case.

    The fifa demo is out on xbox already and apparently the keepers have really low ratings. Cech 64, Buffon 66 etc yet Manninger (Juventus sub goalie) has a rating of 79
    I wonder what thats all about.

    I'm still not sure if i'm gonna get the full game with uncharted 2 coming out later in october followed by MW2. I'm hoping the demo will make my mind up either way.

    Well i'm playing footy with my mates at 5 so I wont get to play on it for a while either. Store hasn't updated yet and I don't think it usually does for an hour or two either.

    Having to pay for Dynamic themes is a ****ing joke.

    What we need is a way to make them ourselves, for free. Like an editor. :cool:

    The wipeout theme is beautiful... Is it interactive, or is it just a .mp4 file playing in the background?

    From what I can gather it is just a vid in the background. Shame the others cost moneys as if they are anything near as good as this one then, well ... :coma:

    I'm not too worked up about it (sorry if it's coming across that way!). I've come to accept my tragic loss ( :emo: ), so I'm now moving on and seeing what I can do to rectify the situation.

    My sister has now said that it's best to write to Sony just to exhaust all options with them. Failing that, I'll get in touch with Amazon.

    The letter is nearly complete. Will hopefully send it off tomorrow.

    Good good! I was taking a bit of a shot with the unrated 1.5TB version, but since the 1TB was rated so highly, I assumed the newer version can't be that much of a disaster! :yep:

    You're right about the internal - tbh I just assumed the Slim would take the same HDD as their big daddies. I'll do some research and if it turns out it doesn't fit, it shouldn't be too difficult to return. Can't really cancel the order now as it was dispatched yesterday with 1st class delivery. Should be with me tomorrow.
