Today my PS3 died. I tried to start her up and she just won't work.

She was so young...


RIP
2010-2014


Soooo now I have to make a choice; do I get a new PS3 or just get a PS4? I'm leaning towards getting a new PS3 since the stupid PS4 won't play PS3 games. I also have two ongoing series that I'm playing; The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us.

But I'm wondering if the games on my HDD can be re-downloaded onto the PS4? And can i continue my season passes on the PS4? If not then screw it I'll just get a newer PS3 with lots of space. But if I can I think I'll just make the jump to PS4 and get a PS3 when they're super cheap so I can go back and play my disc games.

Also I would like to just say "Sony Sucks".

What's the problem with it? If it just did the YLOD then you can probably just get it fixed.

No yellow light. The console just won't start and I stare at a black screen.

What the bloody hell??? Now it works?




....for now



But my question remains the same to any PS4 owners; can I transfer my digital downloads over from my PS3?

Is it a slim?

Sounds power supply related if it's never been opened. If it does it again, hit it a couple times to see if it comes good at which point it might be a loose connection somewhere.

If it just won't start then t sounds like power supply. Worst comes to worst heck Craig's list. Usually can find repair guys on there

Which makes zero sense since you can digitally download PS2 and PS1 games onto your PS3. Looks like I'll wait on a PS4 until they get Playstation Now figured out.

As for my PS3, it wasn't booting guys. It wasn't making any noises like the fan when it comes on. Although now, oddly enough, it boots up and seems to be working fine. I don't get it but who cares as long as it's working.

Serious question that could answer a lot for the rest of us:

How high were you?

Some cross buys you can transfer, but I can't play my PS3 downloads.
And as for PS Now, I'm not allowed to say much about it, but I wouldn't pretend that's how you replace backwards compatibility.

On a scale of 1-10. 1 being a head rush, 10 being OMG THE TOASTER IS TALKING.

I'd say somewhere between a gold star and a thumbs up...





And Ugh what do you mean you're "not allowed to talk about it"? Are you secretly working for Sony under an alias?

He's on the beta. He made a whole thread. He posts there alone since no one else is on it.
