    Ive had 3 PS3s and have had them all freeze a total of well of 100 times... Ive had them all frozen about as much as you can and they would always eventually shut off by holding the front button. My slim which was almost brand new froze like a rock. It took me about 30 secs of holding the damn button before it shut off but eventually it did. I had my doubts it would so... Im sure its possible that a system will not turn off like you said but always avoid it if you can. Just keep trying the front power button until you have determined there is no way possible its shutting off.

    It says right in sony's manual by using the main power (back switch) when its not in standby can cause it to malfunction. Ive broke a PS3 by doing this instead of simply using the front button. But hey it was under warrenty so I got another for free. :D

    • I don't know what you guys are doing to your machines... I'm just glad I have what I consider to be the "Elite" of the PS3 systems in the 60GB first edition. Loud as hell and hot as ****, but has never had an issue.

        I'm pretty sure I have one of the first models as well. Mine was a 40GB though

          Im on my 3rd...

          I bought a 20gb at release... I broke it but it was within the 1 year manf. warrenty so I sent it back and got another 20gb for free.

          2nd 20gb I got back was upgraded to 320gb and worked great for a long long time. It got the YLOD like 4 months ago...

          3rd PS3 is a 320gb slim.... I havent really even used it very much at all, basically just stopped playing.



          Anyways I still have my 20gb that has been upgraded to 320gb. Im going to get around to fixing the YLOD myself its not very hard and then sell it. People want the orginal systems alot because they are backwards compatible and none of the new PS3s are.

          Funny thing is my brother had a 20gb as well.. His got the YLOD and im like dude that sucks... Then not even a week later mine got the YLOD as well. Completely out of the blue seemed to be no problems at all. Just shut it off one day and then it never would turn back on after that.

          • I have the sexy 80GB PS3 that came bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4. No problems with it at all aside from a few freezes.. probably around 5 total in the 3 years or so I've had it. I guess that's good.

            I've used the back switch a few times though when it freezes, I'll have to make sure to use the front button next time.

              Twins!

              The only issues I've had were with the Show 09 froze occasionally and now New Vegas freezes probably once every 5 hours straight I would play but meh.

              • I recently was given a PS3 by a friend and haven't really been keeping track of console gaming for a while. What are a few games I should take a look at that would be really time consuming/replayable (unemployed college grad).

                  All of this are ps3 only

                  MLB the show - If you like baseball it's a must on top of a great franchise you have road to the show which is just as good as the franchise if not better.

                  Uncharted 1&2 - U2 is conisderd the greatest game on the ps3 and has everything you want in a game story,graphics, gameplay. The best graphics I've ever seen in a game. The campign will take you about 12 hours the first time through, but you will wanna play through it again. Also there is a deep MP. Both of these are used for like 25$

                  Little Big Planet 1&2 - LBP 1 is about to be free bc of the psn being down. This kinda game isnt for everyone and I only enjoyed playing it with other people. It's the kinda game if you like it you will get hooked. The cool thing is that users make there own levels so you will never be able to play all of the ones you can download.

                  Resistance 1&2 - FPS thats just really fun and you could get both for about 30$

                  Heavy Rain - This is a short game about 8 hours long, but there is replay value as going back and seeing the diffrent outcomes (5 total). though not everyone will like playing it back through the 2nd and 3rd time. There has been alot of talk about this game on this thread lately. It's very diffrent from anything else out there and a movie where you have to find out who the killer is.

                  Infamous 1 - I've never played it but I've heard good things

                  Also others that are non ps3 only that have long time of playing saints row 2, gta4, red dead redemption

                  • I had a PS2 for about 7 years and it worked wonderful. I occasionally dropped it, I took it friends houses and all. I even took it to Europe to play over it over there some. It still worked great.

                    I never had any problems with my PS3 either. It's one of the biggest reasons I absolutely love Playstation. I have friends with 360's and they are always complaining that it gets ****** up.

                        That's the reason I went PS3 originally and got a 360 afterwards.

                            Good to see that you liked it as much as we said you would. I just finished my 2nd time through and got a completly diffrent ending.
