Title: PS3 is where i'll be
Post by: GamerMan316 on February 08, 2010, 05:06:33 PM
Hi everyone, I have again just got the red ring of death on my fantastically reliable, out of warranty, turns itself off while i'm on Gears, piece of sh*t 360, so i'm not gonna be online for a while ever again, looks like I can finally get around to playing Killzone 2 & Uncharted 2 on my PS3 now.

Ouch.   :'(

I don't like the idea of not getting to play with Crak on Friday nights.  This summer, once I've had time to clear out my to-do list for 360, I may spend a little more time on my PS3 playing something other than HOME.  See you then, if I don't see you sooner.   :)

Cheers Neato, you'll no doubt see me sooner, i've been wanting an Elite for ages now, especially as my crappy 20GB HDD is about to burst, so this gives me an excuse to get one, might be a while before I get one though.

The 360 is completely unreliable, could die on you at any minute, piece of crap console, but also the best damn console on the planet.  Hows that?

I've got an Elite coming next Monday, the 250GB Forza 3 Bundle with an extra pad so i'll be back online very soon, it's only been a day and i'm bored out of my mind, can't even use my PS3 because my brother still has my bloody pad  ;D

John's got the E74 error a couple of weeks ago, while I was setting up the new wireless adapter on it.  He should have it back this weekend, just in time for Kyle's birthday, so he'll be happy.

I saved this video of my 360 when it broke after only 5 months back in 2007...

I took it back to the shop for replacement. 16 months later, the motherboard and drive needed replacing so I had to send that off to MSoft.
Great software, lame hardware.

My new Elite has just arrived which is cool, just need the transfer kit now so I can move everything from my crappy 20GB HDD to the new 250GB one.

Have you ordered one?

I ain't paying for one thats for sure, apparantly Microshaft don't give them away anymore, tbh though theres not a massive amount of saves that i need, i might just borrow my mates memory unit & transfer them that way, i can use the License Transfer Tool to get all my dlc stuff back, thats the main thing.

Gladly, cheers mate  :)

I know Tara has one, the only thing i'm unsure about is the disc that comes with it, i've seen loads of threads online about older discs not working with newer consoles, still worth a try though  :)
Title: Re: PS3 is where i'll be
Post by: Jaynestown on February 11, 2010, 02:57:59 PM
Mine's a little under a year old, I think it's in the loft with a load of other leads, I'll see if I can find it, hopefully the disc is with it! I'll PM you if I find it, may not be until the weekend though.

Thats cool, cheers mate, you're a star  :)

I'll see if Tara still has hers too.

I know whereabouts in the loft I think it is, it's just whether it's actually there and whether the disc is with it!!!  :-\ Last time I went hunting for something in the loft I fell through the only bit of it that wasn't boarded up and ended up hanging through the ceiling like Tom Hanks in The Money Pit!!!  :o

I actually prefer the tedious task of transferring via Memory Unit than transferring with the Kit.

The Kit actually cannot transfer some items.  In which case, it simply deletes the items from the original HDD, and you may never even know what items you're missing until it's too late.

By using the Memory Unit, I'm in control of each item's transfer.  And I know if something does or does not survive the move.  For the stubborn items that don't want to transfer, I use my illegal Datel Xport to force to the transfer.   ;)

The only thing mine didn't transfer was a video of Aliens Versus Predator Requiem (the film), everything else worked perfectly :)

Going through the transfer FAQ on xbox.com, it mentioned that films couldn't be transferred due to licensing restrictions.
