    Sad news today. My PS3 died last night. I went to play soul calibur and it froze on me. I reset it and noticed the disc didn't show up in the XMB. I tried every type of disc:cd,DVD,BD,PS1 but nothing worked. It never had a problem before the 2.42 update. I heard online that the PS3 has a fail rate of 0.0002 so I must be extremely unlucky. I am gonna try to return it to Walmart. I have had it for 9 months but I had my old 60 gig for 4 months and returned it to Walmart with no problems,she never even looked at the date so I'll give it a shot. If I can get it returned I might just end up getting a stand alone Blu-ray player. If I can't return it Ill have to send it to Sony. Thank goodness I am still under warranty and still have my receipt. Everyone always makes fun of me for keeping all my receipts.:D

    Yeah, I tried everything short of dismantling it and trying to fix it from inside,which I don't want to void my warranty.

    If you have had it less than a year you send it to sony they will fix it for free. If over a year like I had to do it was $149.00 and they send you box and pay for all shipping .And you get the same model you send them.So if you have the 60 gig they fix it or send the same model back.It only took 10 days total.

    Went through some crap with UPS but I should finally be getting it tomorrow. I'm gonna put it through the ringer to make sure it works perfect.
