Summary: Like many others, I too received what is a counterfeit dualshock 3. Analog sticks are very stiff, requiring significantly more force to manipulate directionally and also to push down (L3/R3). The battery is all but useless.
Summary: Bought this as a second controller to play coop games offline. When I recieved it I noticed the controller was built with a different material. Not as shiny or reflective as the normal controllers. buttons where slightly unresponsive.
Summary: I bought a playstation slim not even 3 months ago. It started spitting my discs out and not reading them properly. I decided to see whats wrong, after opening it i found my optical drive was cracked in half and not connected properly on one side. Save yourself the trouble and buy an xbox.
Summary: Iv'e always been a huge fan of Sony from TV's to sound systems all the way to laptops. But in terms of gaming they FAIL ! BIG time !! . Im Not an xbox or a Microsoft fanboy but Iv always liked my new 360.
Summary: My second PS3 just died…And Xbox gets a bad rep. My gen1 Xbox still works; heck, my Atari still works perfectly. 2 PS3's, identity compromised... and by the way did you know if you upgrade your hard drive, you can not redownload movies and videos purchased on PSN; I will never buy another Sony...
Summary: Only saving grace here is we have a 3 year warranty on this one. Unfortunately we have to much invested in games and hardware to walk away from PS3's. My suggestion to anyone buying this product, get as much extended warranty as you can afford. The system is great fun when working.
Pros: When they work they are great.
Cons: This is the 2nd PS3 I bought in 3 years. 1st one died within 6 months. Sony sent a refurb.(1 I later saw they could not even lock in the ribbon cable correctly). That lasted exactly 1 week after the 1 year warranty expired. Bought the 320 move bundle as a Christmas gift. Again great when it works...
Summary: had my ps3 back after a week i ship it... ive downgraded from 320BG now i got 250GB... yep i recieved a fully working looks like refurbished 250GB instead of 320GB that i have...well its not fair!!!! have to contact playstation waranty service for this and will update this review!!!!!!
Pros: Just an update from previous review... xD
Cons: a summary from previous post...ps3 broke after the merchant replace/refund expires.. and went to playstation waranty service website...current model was was not up on website and used the lower/closest model (250GB) instead of 320GB...read below
Summary: I would have get my refund for this cheap item f i didnt pass the 30 days period.. I cant believed i pay 400$ for this and breaks easily...only play this mostly on weekend. will update on this rating on how my service goes with SonyPlaystation.
Pros: If it works ... Its NICE!
Cons: Died after 1 month and a week ... Stuck during game play disc tray wont accept/eject.. yep just after a week when the refund/replace from the retailer expires. So i have to contact Sony Playstation Service and the Model Number is not even up yet for the service... Have to select different or clos...
