Friday night I was playin Madden 11 wit my chick. Finished the game no problem. Shut the system off properly. PS3

Saturday - Turn the game on to play again, last game before the new shit come out. Got to the screen where we bout to kick off. We pick random teams so she didn't like her squad. We quit and went back to the main menu to pick again.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE SYSYTEM SHUTS OFF!!! Goes to the red light and everything. I was pissed cause that shit wasn't shut off properly.

Tried turnin the game on again, it comes on, then immediately shuts off, red button status. Red light blinks.

What's goin on?

    Oh... that's hardware failure. Almost the same as the RROD. It'd be better to just get a new one for $250 instead of spendin' $150 to get it fixed again.

    not worth fixing. hope you arent too attached to your saved games. if you can turn it back on for whatever reason, I suggest you buy a month long PSN+ subscription, cloud save all your saved games, and get a new PS3. itll be good for the economy nyuggah

    problem with fixing it yourself is that its (usually) just a temporary solution, whether its a ps3 or a 360. try it to get ur games saved, but then start thinking about getting your 320 gig slimmy.

    why buy a 320 gig when you can get a 20 gb and upgrade the hard drive to 500gb
