if a few of you remember i was complaining about cod4 the other day as it was freezing on me.

WELL.....

i just got my copy of mw2, played one online match, went awesome then it froze on me. My PS3 that i have an 80gb launch console died in the ass.

It wont read the disc, i think the disc drive is stuffed.

I now have a choice to make...

Do i get the xbox360 version?

Or does anybody know how much i would get at eb for trading in my 360pro (2 months old) 2 games (halo3 and GOW2) and headset + controller?? would it cover a ps3 slim? or how much towards it?

Could i also trade in my launch console as well to go towards it? or will they check out the disc drive?

Need to do something tomorrow, and its URGENT.

I reckon trading all that would get you a fair price... Might not be worth it but then again it is the day of days... so taking a small hit in the pocket and getting rid of the slutbox 3shity might be the way to go..

I feel for ya mate.

$150-$200 for a ps3, whether it is broke or in working condition

not sure what a 360 is worth for trade in these days.... if i was you i would keep it for the exclusives that come thru microsoft, its what im doing.

so either chuck in some games you no longer play etc and you can probly get $300+ off the cost of a new console, more if you trade the xbox.

a new ps3 pack is like $490 for the 120gig or more for the 250gig

i was nearly gonna trade in my 5month old baby girl, apart from EBgames saying no. My missuses wasn't too impressed.
Plus a baby that's starting to teethe doesn't get much coin for it , UNLESS I try to sell her on ebay hmmm................................

jks. i love her to bits :)

that sucks :(

Trade it in, or maybe can pick up a fat PS3 somewhere on clearance. Saw $399 for 80GB one yesterday @ Kmart. Only a few in stock.

trade everything you can towards a slim i reckon.

i'm predicting a few more of these.. i've NEVER heard my PS3 make such a noise spinning ANY kind of disc before... it's constantly reading off the disc. :(
I reckon older models will get tested by this game.

CheekyChimpanzee
10-11-2009, 03:02 PM
fck.

i cannot afford that right now.. make it 600 when your disc gets caught in the machine too.

fingers crossed mine is resilient.

as stiffler says, you only live once.

i've got there before.. maxed out a 9g card.. got EPIC guilts but had some awesome toys.. you'll get it paid off eventually. Just think about the awesome toys you have and play with them rather than go out drinking for a few months etc. :)

Super jealous of the 27inch iMac. I want to iBone them. iHard. (no really, iAm).

Actually while we're talking about 27" iMacs, have you tried the video-in acriu? Does the PS3 look any good through it?

GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY! rather than moping around at work today (even though were busy as all hell due to we sell air conditioners) i took my lunch break traded in my 360, broken ass ps3, 7 games (oblivion, sega collection, so com conf., halo 3, pure, GOW2 and ff12 (ps2), wireless network connector for 360 snagged $429. paid the extra 60 something and now i have a brand new 120gb slim sitting next to me in its box.

Nice one mate! Not a bad trade...I guess. Considering the circumstances anyway.



That's terribly unlucky though. On the way home Spiltek was saying "imagine what i would be like if i got home and my PS3 was fucked"....That's just unlucky.

10-11-2009, 06:05 PM
yeah very unlucky i know, dont care too much about the trade, didnt play the 360 and desperate times call for desperate actions!!

I also said imagine if we had a car accident on the way home (from midnight MW2 launch) and died and never got to play it............

What happened then miney? haha

MADrtr, did you get the EB ext warrenty for $60 bucks - two years of warrenty where you just simply take it back for a new one rather than deal with sony. ps i think they give a preowner in the sedond year tho, anyway piece of mind...

Well about the third set of lights we went through on the way home it was a green light and we took off, only to have a fuckhead of a taxi driver on the left-hand side (my side) just decide to basically keep going into the intersection on his red light. If spils didn't stop, he would have hit us, that's how close it was.


Spils had a little bit of a go at him but due to how much we both wanted to get home and play, he didn't get out the car like normal.
