Default I take back the bad things I said about the 360

Last night my PS3 stopped reading discs so I will have to send it into Sony for repair or replacement. I have the worst fucking luck; at this point, my Wii is the only console I have that hasn't died on me yet. I mean, technically I can still use the PS3, but the piece of shit just won't read any discs. I guess now I'll get a real chance to compare Microsoft and Sony's warranty repair process. It shouldn't be hard for Sony to do a better job, because my 360 was gone for more than 40 days.

inb4 insan3 saying "you should have stuck to PC gaming" or some shit. At this point, I'm starting to feel the same way.

I've had mine since 9/9/1999 and it isn't going anywhere. The only problem I've had with the Dreamcast is that the system clock needs to be reset every time the system gets unplugged because the motherboard battery has died.

I'm waiting for the pre-paid shipping label and box from Sony to arrive; until then I'm going to continue to leave my PS3 on 24/7 for folding@home.

Default Open up your PS2, and clean the lens of the Disk Reader with a wipe.

It's a launch unit, and the drive is physically broken, not dirty. Even if it was just dirty, I wouldn't care; I have a working Xbox360, Wii, and a PC so I am nowhere near desperate enough to want to play the PS2.

Why does it matter? Regardless, the PS2 would not be a suitable replacement for my broken PS3; the only equivalent game console out is the Xbox360. If your PS2 broke would you want to replace it with a PS1?

When you're talking about magnetic media like a hard drive / floppy you would spell it disk. When talking about optical media like CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, HD-DVDs etc, you would the correct spelling would be disc.

I would.

I think you are the only one ever to point that out. At least, the only one I've seen that says there is a profound difference.
